Captain erroneously announced that these were built "just last year". I’ve got photographic evidence to the contrary!

🙂 First, they built a luxury suite right INSIDE of Cinderella’s Castle. Then, just when we thought things couldn’t get any cooler, they let a family stay overnight in the Disneyland Haunted Mansion (I wonder what THAT was like? I bet there were lots of things going bump in THAT night!). Now, The Daily Disney (Orlando Sentinel) reports that Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean”-themed hotel rooms have been such a raging success, there are plans underway to renovate more space across Walt Disney World into resort accommodations with “storybook” themes.
Let’s see – what other films could Disney use to create themed rooms?
- The Princess and the Frog – imagine a Princess Tiana section at the Port Orleans French Quarter resort. Let’s have Mardi Gras, every day! They could give the restaurant a make-over, transforming it into the one that Tiana built. They could even arrange to deliver you to your resort via river boat (no I am not suggesting they bring the Empress Lily out of retirement LOL).
- The Swiss Family Robinson – do up the Treehouse Villas a la Swiss Family Robinson. Hammocks for beds! A shipwreck in the canal for the kids to play on! Wait, we’ve got one of those already – it’s part of Stormalong Bay at the Yacht and Beach Club. Well, on the other hand, we won’t find dangerous, machete-wielding natives anywhere else but the Polynesian (have you ever seen what they use to cut the meat at Ohana?). Ok, clearly I need to think about this one a little more…. maybe the Swiss Family resort package includes resort hopping – yeah, that’s the ticket! 😉
- The Incredibles – we need a futuristic environment for this. Therefore, I think they should create an Incredibles-themed block of rooms at the Contemporary (remember Mrs Incredible dangling from the “monorail” tracks?)
- Song of the South – the countrified whimsy of Splash Mountain, where the critters from Song of the South live, would fit in nicely at Port Orleans Riverside. Part of the resort package could be a free, length-of-stay FastPass to for that attraction. Can you imagine how popular that would be, especially in the heat of the summer?
OK, your turn – What “storybook” theme would YOU like to experience in your Disney resort room?
