There is a way to make your visit to the happiest place on earth a really lavish one, if you have the cash for it. Susana Victoria Perez has more.
If you’ve ever wanted to shell out $15,000 for an exclusive dinner inside one of Walt Disney’s hidden getaways, you’re in luck. 21 Royal, the ultra-élite dining room set in a little-known sanctuary in Disneyland, offers precisely that. Now accepting reservations for dinner parties of up to twelve people, you can get a taste of some seriously high-class Disney magic for as little as $1,250 per head.
21 Royal is hidden away in the California park’s 2,200-square foot Dream Suite, which sits at the top of a winding staircase above the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in New Orleans Square. Originally designed to be Walt Disney’s personal inside-the-park abode, the Dream Suite was still being completed when Disney died in 1966. The space went through a period as an art gallery peddling Disney-themed art pieces, then a private hotel suite for contest winners, before finally being repurposed as a private dining room and lounge space. For the superfans who come through, there are plenty of hidden Mickeys scattered throughout.
