Imagine a wonderful visit to Disneyland and you are seeing places that a usual guest wouldn't be able to see such as Walt Disney's private apartment at the Park seeing the exclusive Lilly Belle VIP Parlor Car. This year twenty-five lucky D23 Members will be allowed to visit exclusive locations of Disneyland with the Off the Map Sweepstakes.
Four Special Places
Walt Disney's Private Apartment: This apartment was constructed on the second floor of the Firehouse in Main Street USA. This exclusive site is decorated with Victorian decor, antiques and personal Disney family photos.
Lilly Belle VIP Parlor Car: Once attached to the Disneyland Railroad, this private car parlor is lushly decorated with mahogany furniture and antique furnishing that gives the Lilly Belle a touch of class. This train car was used for VIP guests and is a part of Disney history as Lillian Disney influenced the design of the interior.
Circle D Ranch: This part of Frontierland is home to Disneyland's horses and other animals. This land is a working ranch and the animals are cared for by professional staff. The horses who are cared for at the Circle D are the same who draw the vehicles along Main Street USA and make an appearences at Disney weddings. Santa's reindeer are overseen by staff just for the holidays.
Disneyland Dream Suite: This private space located above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction was planned to be a larger, private apartment for Walt Disney and his family. In 2008, Imagineers were influenced by Walt Disney's original design and adding in their own special touch, they created the Dream Suite into a lovely place with fantastic view.
The Off the Map Sweepstakes is only D23 members and is open until August 23rd. This tour will take place on October 2nd. For more information and rules check here!
