As part of “Limited Time Magic,” we’re offering a rare opportunity to tour the castles of Magic Kingdom Park with Walt Disney Imagineers.

Fireworks Over the Castles of Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

Each morning from October 14-18, 2013, a group of lucky guests will be invited to join us for a special walking tour of the castles. During each session, you’ll hear some great details, including how the existing Cinderella Castle design became the main inspiration for the Cinderella Castle Suite. Imagineers will also take guests through Be Our Guest Restaurant located in the magnificent castle of the Beast and share behind-the-scenes information.

There will be only one tour each morning – with 25 guests in each group. You may enter here for a chance to attend only one of the five tours being offered from October 14-18, 2013. Also, here are the rules for the drawing for the Tours of Magic Kingdom Park Castles at the Walt Disney World Resort.

  • I was lucky enough to win a spot on a tour Wednesday morning! SO EXCITED! I’m hoping they provide me with more logistics info than was in the Congrats email. It didn’t provide any contact info or mention that more info would be forthcoming, so I decided to try replying to the email with my questions. Hopefully that works!

    • Hi Karen, details are in your notification email. Did you get that?

  • I’m with Elizabeth. Bummed that I heard about this _after_ entries were closed.

  • Does anyone who won know how to contact the pople in charge of the contest?

  • Bummmmmer……got the email THIS morning (12th) :(……..

  • I am very happy I won but didn’t realize it was just for one. I can’t go by myself. How do I give up my spot?

  • will be there with family but how would that look if I won and said see you later guys going to take a limited guided tour of the castle without you.

  • I Believe in Magic!

  • This was a VERY limited time of 3 hours! LOL I wish that they had done this for the entire year! It would have definitely made me want to come to Disney more! The tours are my favorite part of the Disney experience. 🙂

  • I didn’t receive an answer either way. Did everyone get a response?

  • I also got the “Unfortunately, you were not selected.” I wanted to do this so badly. Another time perhaps. Congrats to the lucky winners.

  • My girlfriend was notified that she’s been selected to do this tour. We have a character breakfast at the Grand Floridian at the same time, so I’m trying to see if we can reschedule the breakfast. Can anyone tell me how long the tour lasts?

    Also, I haven’t received either a “you didn’t win” email, or a “you’ve won” email. How can I find out if I have won or not?

  • My son, Logan will be celebrating his 6th birthday during our stay Oct. 13-18th. His first time. He would love this tour!

  • I would love to visit castles. Just about only part of this magic land I have not seen.

  • NM I just read the whole article. We wont be there for this.

  • OH PLEASE!!!!!! Id love to be a part of this! Consider me and my best friend. we are going in December after he gets back from army training. This would make one Magical Day. We are staying at the Boardwalk for 7 days.

  • I really hope they offer this on a regular basis. I am so sad I missed the entry period for this 🙁 Ironically I will be there every day that this is offered. Maybe next time 🙂

  • I have got to start taking ‘staycations’ so I can be at home during the work day when these type events are announced.

  • Having my mother pass away this past Easter, having Kidney Cancer little less that two years ago and now in remission that would be the sampling amazing. It would truly make a dream that I would never want to wake up.

  • We will be there that week. It’s too bad that the entire family can’t go on the tour. Guess I won’t sign up.

  • I didn’t win but my partner did and he doesn’t want to go without me now. Who do I contact to give up the spot?

  • I have email saying, “Unfortunately, you were not selected to attend the tour.”

  • I just received my email and am beyond excited to be chosen for this. There are tears of pure happiness!

  • I just got the official “you didn’t win” email. Bummer. 🙁

  • Bummer, just got my ‘sorry you may not go” email … Have a good time winners…

  • When do the winners get sent a notification? Have they already been chosen? I am checking my email every 5 minutes! 🙂

  • I signed up but after I realized it says you CANNOT bring a guest. So if I win a tour, my husband can’t join in? I’ve desperately wanted to see the Castle Suite since it first opened but I would feel bad making him stand around and miss out. 🙁

  • I would love to have entered and though I will be there all that week, I am not a US citizen …. shame! Good luck to all that enters…

  • Please please please do this again in Nov .. the 10-16th to be exact. I would LOVE to do this but won’t be in town 🙁

  • I messed up and did not click all of the days. I read it as picking the day you would prefer and then re-read it as the page was loading, post submit…..So I narrowed my chances 🙁

  • so excited would love the opportunity!!!!!

  • What a wonderful adventure this would be! Good luck to all and I know whoever wins will have a wonderful time!

  • Grr. I missed entering by about 7 minutes thanks to connection issues. I actually COULD be there the 16th or the 17th since I live 1.5 hrs away.. Oh well. Maybe next time. :/

  • Exciting!

  • Oh my gosh I am goin to be there for 2 of the days I am so hoping for a chance to do this…EEEK so excited!!!

  • We’re going to be there for my daughter’s bachelorette weekend…wouldn’t this just be the icing on the [wedding] cake?!?

  • I’m going to be there that week and would really be wonderful to win this. This is a dream come true. Always at disney

  • It would be wonderful to see the behind the scenes and inner workings of Cinderella’s Castle. We will be at Disneyworld on Nov. 23 – 28 of 2013.

  • I signed up. Was actually at WDW last week. I live in Tallahassee so would have to figure out logistics of getting down there for an 8am tour if name drawn. (It’s a 4 hour drive).

  • How do you sign up?? We will be there on the 17th celebrating our 20th Anniversary. We honeymooned at Disney in ’93. This would be so cool.

  • This would literally be a dream come true for me! I would probably cry. But only a little.

  • This is the week that We are going I really hope a lot of people don’t enter I would love to win…lol I know that’s a little mean but I would really love it. I have always wonder what’s in all those rooms or if its all just for looks or is it just the Disney junk closet…lol I was feeling bummed because we signed my son up for a Disney Y.E.S. class and me and my hubby flipped to see who got to go with him and I lost so this would more then make up for it!!!!!!

  • Yeah! Just entered, this would be an awesome thing to add to our Epic Disneyworld trip.

  • Oh I sure do hope I win this. I will be at WDW the entire week and 10/15 is my actual birthday. Talk about making it a magical day indeed!!

  • I gotta ask too – is the castle suite included as part of the tour???

    • Yes, it’s part of these special tours. Thanks, Blair.

  • If only this could have been October 28-Nov 1 my day would have been made. Assuming I won of course lol

  • I really want to go! I never win anything so this would be awesome! Fingers crossed!

  • I’m so sad that this is also “limited” only to US residents. 🙁

  • Of course…. we will be there on the 19th! 🙁

  • is there a walking tour of the suite also part of this?

    • Hi Jeremiah, yes – guests will tour the suite as part of this “Limited Time Magic” experience.

  • Oh man I want to win this SO bad! I have always wanted to see the Cinderella Castle Suite.
