A Look At The Suite Inside Cinderella’s Castle At Walt Disney World

Inside Cinderella's Castle suite at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom

When Walt was designing the Magic Kingdom for his new Florida park, he wanted an apartment right in the middle of the action. He already had an apartment above the fire station in Disneyland but for this new park he wanted something more grand. On the top floor or Cinderella’s Castle the Imagineers tucked in a small one bedroom apartment with beautiful views of the entire park. Sadly, Walt never had a chance to stay in this apartment and the space sat empty for decades. The apartment had long been talked about by Disney enthusiasts and some had even written it off as urban legend. But During the “Year of a Million Dreams” promotion, Disney finally gave the suite a proper makeover as Cinderellas suite and opened it up for lucky families to spend the night in.

The suite features a foyer, a royal bedchamber, a royal sitting room with a magic mirror that transforms into a TV, and a royal bath with special light effects in the jacuzzi tub and twinkling stars overhead. Any princess would be thrilled to lay her head down in this lavish pad.

Popularity Of Star Wars Vs Star Trek By State

The helpful gang over at Movoto Blog did some digging and crunched the numbers to find out which states liked which sci fi franchise. In the battle of Star Wars vs Star Trek, we of course believe Star Wars is far superior, so this list and these maps simply reinforce why we shouldn’t live in Oregon ;)

Star Wars vs Star Trek

Some may tell you to live long and prosper. Others may wish that the Force be with you.

These famous lines, as well as many others, are just some of the reasons “Star Wars” and “Star Trek” have become two of the most iconic and essential science fiction franchises in history.

Still, there’s a bit of a rift between these two factions. Some stick with Klingons and Ferengis, while others are all about the Wookies and Storm Troopers, and there’s often a little bit of a rivalry between the sides. So, where is each fandom strongest?

That’s what the Movoto Real Estate Blog set out to find, and, as you can see by the maps, we didn’t even have to go as far as the Dagobah System or Risa to find it. What spurred our curiosity? Well, we may be in the business of selling houses, but we’re also really into sci-fi. Seriously, have you seen our fictional evaluations?

If you want to find out how we did it, all you have to do is go on to the next section.

RIP Robin Williams

It was shocking hearing the news tonight of Robin Williams dying. Here was a man that we had known for years. He entertained us in countless movies, shows and standup. He made us cry, he made us think, and always made us laugh. But it’s unfortunate that we couldn’t do that for him. Social media is currently blowing up with this news and an outpouring of emotion is filling up the net. So home come someone so loved would take their own life? Sadly, as hard as it is to comprehend the answer is very simple, depression. Here was a man loved the world over blinded by one of the things many don’t ever want to talk about. Mental illness is not something to take lightly, it affects people in all walks of life young and old, black and white, rich or poor, it doesn’t matter. We all have bad days, we all have things go wrong in our lives, but trust me, it will get better, there’s always a reason to hang on. If you’re ever feeling low and you get to that dark place, REACH OUT! There are many people and places that can help you. Don’t want your friends or family to know what’s going on? Then call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – (If you’re not in the US there are contact numbers on this Wiki page). There’s tons of great people there that will talk to you. Hell, if you want, contact us! We can watch videos of people getting hit in the nuts or something or we can just talk, whatever you want, we’ll do it. Just remember, you’re never alone, there is always someone there. Someone has felt pain like you’re feeling, and it will get better.

Goodnight funny man, and thanks for all the laughs

Robin Williams
