The suite is located inside Cinderella Castle on the fourth floor and was originally intended to be an apartment for Walt Disney and his family when they came to Florida. After Walt died inthe space became an area for telephone operators and over the years had various different uses. Last year at a Disney media event, I sat at a table next to someone who won a stay with her family. I actually started to hyperventilate when they announced they would be giving away a stay in the suite!
But since he lived with 10 other people, this is an opportunity to examine whether or not the possibly verifiable parts of his divine experiences can be confirmed by other people rather than just taking Joseph's word for it.
Simply put, if you were one of six brothers all sleeping in the same room and your youngest brother sleeping in your very own bed, who believed in magic and finding treasure by looking into stones, told you that an angel appeared in your room last night not once, but three times and lit up the entire room as bright as the noonday sun with his countenance as bright as lightning and conversed with him for almost the entire night whilst you and your other five brothers snoozed away for this entire time - would you believe it?
Equally puzzling is that there is no record that Joseph told any of his brothers, or the rest of his family, about his experience upon waking up. You would think that he would immediately wake up his brothers and tell them what happened.
Joseph apparently didn't mention it to anyone until later that day and then perhaps only to his father. This sounds every much like the alien abduction stories where someone swears that they were abducted in the middle of the night by aliens and taken aboard a space ship but their spouse was never woken up by this.
The alleged abductee of course says that the all-powerful aliens have the ability to keep people asleep or erase their memories so their spouses can never see the aliens and verify their stories. To the spouses sleeping next to the abductee, there is no doubt that their spouse was sleeping in the bed with them the whole time, but to the abductee they still think their bizarre experiences were real despite the lack of evidence and the complete absurdity of it all.
From Mormon historian D. Michael Quinn There is at least one instance where this subject has been the source of considerable scholarly investigation.
Acclaimed Mormon historian D. Michael Quinn offered a rather illuminating hypothesis regarding the Moroni visitations of to In his revised edition of 'Early Mormonism and the Magic World View" he makes some fascinating and convincing parallels between the timing of the alleged visitations and folk occult practices associated with conjuring deceased spirit guardians for the purpose of locating hidden treasure.

None of Smith's known narratives of his First Vision were precise about dates: By contrast, Smith was very specific about the date and time of his visions. His earliest autobiography gave the day, month, and year for these experiences.
The first published history gave even the hours: Smith's prayer-visitation therefore occurred between Sunday night at Palmyra's Joseph Smith was not the only one who valued the date of 22 September to "commune with some kind of messenger.
