Dream Suite was one of about 18 projects in the FY’08 Resort-Wide Agreement portfolio that CWD completed. The Dream Suite is a 2,000 SF apartment above Pirates of the Carribean that was being constructed in the early 60’s as Walt’s private residence in the park. He passed away during contruction. The Dream Suite was renovated from its existing condition to a luxury hotel suite to be used initially as a part of a promotion where the suite was given away each day to a different randomly-selected park guest. The Suite consists of two themed bedrooms, a living room, a themed private courtyard, and a private balcony overlooking New Orleans Square and the Rivers of America. The project demanded an extremely high level of quality, even by Disney standards. Each room has expensive finishes from around the world that were in many cases custom ordered so that they could not be replicated anywhere else. The entire suite is filled with hidden audio and visual special effects. The tub in the master bath is surrounded by a glass tile dome with built in fiber optic lighting giving the appearance of twinkling stars. Stained glass, decorative stone and travertine, custom wood and metal work were installed throughout.
