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.”
