The majestic Cinderella Castle serves as the centerpiece of Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park. In fact, each of the theme park’s six enchanted lands – Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland– radiate out from the castle like spokes on a wheel.

The tallest structure in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and one of the theme park’s original attractions when it opened its doors in 1971, Cinderella Castle is 189 feet high (Space Mountain is a close second at 183 feet). The castle was modeled on a traditional French-style chateau and features a moat and 18 towers, as well as 13 gargoyles. Stroll through the main hall of the castle and view the story of Cinderella on five intricate murals.

A “Once Upon a Time” character breakfast takes place at the elegant Cinderella’s Royal Table (originally known as King Stefan’s Banquet Hall), which also serves lunch and dinner (reservations are requested). Cinderella Royal Table is located on the second floor of Cinderella Castle and features stained glass windows and dozens of coats of arms on display. Cinderella Castle is also an ideal locale for spotting Disney characters throughout the day. Shopping opportunities located near Cinderella Castle in Fantasyland include Fantasy Fair, Sir Mickey’s and Tinker Bell’s Treasures.

Cinderella Castle plays an important role in the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, a fantastic fireworks display that takes place on special nights at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

Note: Cinderella Castle is wheelchair accessible.
