Today the new Royal Guest Rooms officially make their debut at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside. These re-imagined rooms feature beds with crystals and gold accents, “magical fireworks” effects, and now comprise the 512 themed rooms at this Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

Each guest staying in one of these fairytale rooms is welcomed via an invitation from New Orleans native, Princess Tiana, of “The Princess and the Frog” fame, or one of her many other royal friends. Room decor is themed to “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” or “The Princess and the Frog.”

Artwork, banners, crowns, and fiber-optic headboard effects are among some of the many unique touches Disney’s Imagineers have added to these updated hotel rooms, starting at $189 per night. My personal favorite touch is Genie’s magic lamp forming the bathroom faucet.

“We are excited to build off the highly popular ‘story room’ concept by offering another very immersive and richly themed accommodation for our guests,” said Kevin Myers, Vice President Resorts, Walt Disney World Resort. Disney previously debuted “Pirates of the Caribbean” themed story rooms at the Caribbean Beach hotel. “Storytelling is what Disney does, and these new room offerings clearly provide a great new Disney Resort option for our guests.”

The new Royal Guest Rooms can sleep up to four princes or princesses and can be booked by calling 407-W/DISNEY.

    I remember that they also posted some concept art for a Haunted Mansion themed room at the same time they first brought out the idea of the Royal Rooms. I really hope that they use the Haunted theme elsewhere. It was really awesome, and I think it would appeal to boys and older guests…

    I want to stay in the Princess & the Frog room! I love that they are bringing Princess & the Frog stuff into things…wish they’d build a dark ride for Tiana in WDW. It is the most underrated Disney film in years and I just love it a little more each time I see it. Also would love a “Tiana’s Palace” restaurant at WDW. I would also love to stay in a Haunted Mansion room. I would split my stay between staying in a Princess and the Frog room and a Haunted Mansion room. My friends back home would be jealous!

      Whoa, whoa, easy there–
      Me, I was just about to ask the simple question: Why do we have a Tiana room NOT in French Quarter?
      That’s like putting a Pirates of the Caribbean room in All-Star Sports, instead of Caribbean Beach!

    Kind of disapointing, especialy for a 200 dollar room!
    Take the letter, would it have costed Disney a lot of money to rent a specialist in kalligrafie to write the letter and coppy that instead of a printed letter in a semi handwritten font. The letter has no crest from her kingdom or anything.
    And it looks the backdrops behind both beds are indentical. Not enough inspiration to make another one?
    Also the promotional pictures seem to promote to have kids have their shoes on when they are on the bed. Great way to keep de overtrough look nice.
    And having a curtain between the bathroom and the sleepingroom, when it is stacked with all kinds of stuff, not a great view.
    I don´t think the pricetage is justyfied when you can have the same size room minus the little theming at Lake Buena vist for less then 60 in the off season.

      Yea have to agree with you on the price and the stuff about the letter.

      Why would Tiana write in Calligraphy? She’s American…

  4. More weapons, more vehicles, more players, more ways to play.
    History dictates that the existence of these types of games date back
    more than 4,000 years ago. The super Nintendo classics provide you with the SNES ROMs, SNES cheats, SNES Emulators, SNES ROMs for the great
    gaming experience.

  5. First ooff I would like to say excellentt blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if yoou don’t
    mind. I was interested to find outt how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    outt there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend tto
    be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Anny ideass or hints?
    Thanks!

  6. May I just say what a relief to uncover an individual who actually knows what they are discussing on the web.
    You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people should read this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you certainly have
    the gift.
