Does anyone know what's in the Disney Castle at the Magic Kingdom? I went to the Magic Kingdom with my 4 year old daughter last week and she desparately wanted to go inside the castle.

Both entrances on each side were blocked off both days we were there. I saw two entrances to a restaurant and a hair salon, but they were both booked solid.

Is that middle part ever open? Also, is there anything to see in there or the restaurant or hair salon that's special or cool? The castle in Disneyland seems to have a Sleeping Beauty attraction, but I can't determine whether there is anything about the one in Orlando.

Also, is there any special tours of the castle?

I promised the next time we come back she'd get to go in the castle and I made February reservations for that restaurant and hair salon. She was at the point of being hysterical when I told her it was closed, but I just wanted to check if there was anything else to do there when we come back.

There is a gift shop on the left inside facing castle, at the back right you can go into a restaurant that is upstairs and overlooks Dumbo area, beyond that it is all private.

When the walkway is open, there are some beautiful mosaics of the stories, but nothing to walk through and see in the building, per se. They did build a hotel suite in it that they used for a special promotion (and probably still do occasionally) -- but it's not available for general rental. No tour or even walk-through like the cute one at Disneyland. Just gift shop and restaurant, and I guess now the Bibbidi-bobbity boutique thing. It's always been rather disappointing. I think the new castle (the Beast's?) is also just a restaurant.

We have had dinner twice in the restaurant and really enjoyed it both times. Even though it was just me and DH, they make you feel welcome. The food was good, the service was excellent. Your daughter will love the event. The princesses come through and stop at each table for photo ops. So be sure to have your camera with you. Before going upstairs to the dining room your group will have their photo taken with Cindarella. You will receive an 8X10 and 2 5X7 photos in a lovely folder with the castle on the front. Its brought to your table during your meal. The photos are included in your dinner price as are tips and taxes. There is nothing else to see in the castle. We did New Years Eve the first time and last year we did Christmas Eve. It just made the holidays that much more special for us.

Since we live in SE Florida we try to go to the parks during the Holiday Season every year. There is just something special about Disney World during the holidays.

The Bibodi Bobodi salon, a restaurant and a place to take pictures with Cinderella (we did it) the food is okay and way to expensive. The bathroom isn't even that great either in there.
