The second bedroom, furnished in Frontierland style, features two twin beds and is furnished to suit young imaginations in deep reds and earth tones. A wide shelf runs around the top of all four walls, adorned with toys with distinct Disneyland connections—a jazz quartet for New Orleans Square, a replica of the Sailing Ship Columbia, a large model train, and much more. The Goodnight Kiss button here starts the train around a hidden track on the high shelves, and many of the toys come to life as the train passes it. An early artist’s rendering of Disneyland Park magically lights up as the lights dim, showing the park at night. The attached bathroom and closet are smaller but also lavish.

The sitting room is full of magical touches, including replicas of many of the antiques that Walt and Lillian Disney collected. Behind and above the settee are beautiful paintings of the two castles that inspired Sleeping Beauty Castle: Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria and Chateau de Chenenceau in France’s Loire Valley. The lovely fireplace glows with a magical fire that gives off occasional “fireworks.”

The Goodnight Kiss in the sitting room touches off enchantment throughout the room, in objects that include a lampshade showing a scene from Cinderella, a music box, singing clockwork birds, and a lovely glass slipper, to the sweet refrains of “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

The general public currently has no way to obtain a stay in the Dream Suite, but stays were awarded during the Year of a Million Dreams celebration in 2007-2008 and during the recent Disneyland Diamond Celebration. Short visits are only possible by booking the “Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps” guided tour (see page 250), which concludes in the Dream Suite. Tour guides often take a photo of each tour member in front of the fireplace, with its mirror reflecting the lovely castle painting.

This article only begins to touch the surface of the Dream Suite’s magic, and I recommend you book the tour if you have the time and the resources. Disney cast members recommend keeping an eye on the Disney websites for future celebrations, to find out when stays in the Dream Suite will be given out next. I’ll certainly be looking for this!
