A Hidden Hotel Suite In Cinderella's Castle At Disney World

One of the most well-kept Disney secrets is a hotel suite inside Cinderella's Castle. Three stained glass windows in the castle's rear portion belong to this hotel suite, more beautiful than all the rest in Disney.

Built in 1971, the Cinderella Castle has become one of the most recognizable icons of the brand: from the opening scene in every Disney film, the signature stamp on Disney memorabilia and souvenirs, and the picture every visitor hopes to capture, reports Travel + Leisure.

The hotel suite was never used and lay incomplete for almost 40 years, until Disney decided to renovate in 2006. The bedroom, foyer, living room and bathroom were originally where Walt Disney and his family would stay when they were around. But after Disney's passing in 1966, the plans were cancelled. In 2006, the space was re-constructed as a beautiful apartment, and is said to be located directly under the princess's own quarters.

It's the only hotel room inside the park. An arched doorway goes past a grandfather clock that perpetually reads 11:59pm; in other words, the clock never strikes 12 at the Cinderella Castle. Then you ride an elevator which will bring you up to the 4th-floor suite. The elevator opens into a foyer, where one passes an elaborate mosaic floor made with thousand of tiles, most of them in 24-carat gold, and a curiosity cabinet displaying Cinderella's glass slipper before entering the parlor. On a 17th-century Dutch desk are books, a Victorian-style rotary phone and a telescope for gazing through six stained glass windows, all of which look in the direction of Fantasyland.

The bedchamber is designed as that of a 17th-century château, with two queen canopy beds and an antique limestone fireplace. The bathroom might be fairest of all, complete with a spa tub. According to This Is Insider, this Jacuzzi tub is the suite's crown jewel. On the ceiling, a starry night sky lights up thanks to Chromatherapy Lighting, and the tub is surrounded on three sides by vibrant mosaic scenes depicting Cinderella's story.
