Disneyland unveils the Dream Suite

January 29, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
A magical experience has just been unveiled at Disneyland. Starting Friday, lucky guests will have a chance to spend the night at the new Disneyland Dream Suite.From the smallest detail to the most overtop display the Disney Suite is a one of a kind experience.

The 2,600 square foot suite is located right above the Pirates of the Caribbean. It has been transformed into two master bedrooms, two bathrooms, a parlor and a balcony overlooking New Orleans Square.

There is one catch to be able to stay in the plush Disney suite, you have to show up at the park and hope you get picked.

"It is random. Anyone can win at the Disneyland resort. Anyone who comes through the gates would be picked by a member of the Dream Squad. They will then be brought up to spend a magical evening here," said Greg Ashton, Walt Disney Imagineering.

The park apartment was originally built for Walt Disney himself back in the 1960s.

When he passed away before completion the finishing touches were put on hold. The suite has been decorated just for Disney fans with decor tailored to what Walt Disney would of wanted for himself.

"Some of the renderings were created under Walt's personal direction. We dug back into the archives and pulled out those renderings and used those as the basis for the design of the Disneyland Dream Suite you see today. One of the cool things is that they will do a little Disneyland after dark tour. So you can see behind backstage Disneyland and some things that most people do not get to see," said Ashton.

One winner a day is selected at the park through an independent sweepstakes. The lucky guest can bring in as many as five friends to spend the night.

The winner of the Disneyland Dream Suite will also be celebrated as the Honorary Grand Marshal in that day's Disneyland parade.

As guests settle in for a stay in the Disneyland Dream Suite, they'll discover special effects surprises in each room. It could be a special tune in a striking clock, a sunset or a starscape that appears when the lights go down, subtle audio enhancements, or something totally unexpected.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
