It's a Disney promo. It's 'Making Disney Memories' week on Wheel of Fortune and they are giving away a trips to either WDW or DL to 10 home viewers.

I saw a video tour of the castler suite on the web recently. They played the game of 'how much does it cost to stay here?' andthe answer from the CM was 'oh, that is what is so great. No money inthe world can pay a stay atthe castle suite. You need to be lucky enough to some how win it'. As the peice ended, they stated again, unless you are a celebrity, you need to get super lucky. I immediately thought - I thought you can't buy your way into it.

During the Year of Dreams a friend won the night stay. They were selected at Soarin because their son sat in the right seat at the right time. If you search the trip reports you will find several Disers who have spent the night.

I love that it is magic to be able to stay there and it is not for sale

We won during year of dreams. We were in that first room you go into at tower of terror. We thought it was odd that not many people were let in, than they told us we won. We only won fast passes though.

You have to win a stay (contest) or be a celebrity. I heard that when one of the Jonas Brothers got married, they had a stay in the castle. People have said it doesn't hurt to be extra nice to the staff, they're in the "know" and can make some things happen. I've had friends put in parades and things like that.

Tell me about the food availability while in the suite. Tell me there's a giant refridgerator with gormet food and chocolate galore. I'll become the next reality tv star if I get in that castle suite with a loaded refridgerator!!

That is not exactly accurate. Disney cast members have stayed there.

We attended a presentation by HGTV's Genevieve Gordner at Epcot during the Flower and Garden Show. She said her family was spending the night in the castle (she has a little girl). I don't consider her a mega-celebrity at all!

On the married Jonas's one year anniversary they stayed there. They had a blurb on the Disney Channel showing him carrying her in.

Now's your chance! Disney's running a new contest that includes a stay in the castle as a prize. Just saw a link to this contest on the Disney Parks blog.
