    Haunted Mansion and Princess Room to add to Pirates at Moderate resorts?

    Surprised this hasn't shown up yet, but a few other sites are reporting about surveys where people are asked if they would stay in moderately priced rooms based on specific characters or attractions. The three examples were princesses, Pirates (which is already at Caribbean Beach) and Haunted Mansion. The CG renderings make these interesting to look at.

    The Haunted Mansion one sounds cool, but is a little too cartoony, though I LOVE the Doombuggy bed and the sliding bookcase to hide the bathroom; I'm sure to not scare kids too much. I LOVE the princess rooms though. Cogsworth, Rose, Aladdin's lamp, the bench is the dog from Beauty and the Beast, and there's a mousehole with Gus and Jacques in the wall as well.

    The other question is where will they add these....though I hope they won't retrofit any additional exiting rooms but keep these in mind for future developments. Don't ruin the themes of the resorts by adding synergy please.

    Here's a link. It only has one picture of the princess room though. Others can be found searching online.

    I usually stay at a Value because I'd rather stay longer and don't spend much time at the resort anyways but for that HM room I'd upgrade.

    Those rooms look cozy and make my room look like crap! I dislike the hotel experience, but this....WOW! I've outgrown my bed (my feet dangle off the end). Those beds look so comfortable.

    Haunted Mansion room looks really neat, far better than I expected. I've always kind of been disappointed by the Pirates themed rooms, as they looked like something from a child's bedroom, but those seem to have their theming stepped up quite a bit. I just hope that they pick appropriate resorts for these rooms if they ever do implement them.

    Re: Haunted Mansion and Princess Room to add to Pirates at Moderate resorts?

    I really wish the Haunted Mansion room looked more like a room from the attraction and less like a cross between the mansion and Toontown. What's with the weird angles and rounded corners? If kids are too scared to stay in a cool Haunted Mansion room, they're still going to hate the idea of staying in ANY Haunted Mansion room. They're better off catering to the hardcore fans.

    Of course, I'd still be interested in checking this out once. Done right, though, it'd be hard to resist staying there every time.

    It is a great idea, though, and hopefully a trend that will continue. Maybe someday a Jungle Cruise room (I know, I know, I won't hold my breath)?

    I would definitely stay in the Haunted Mansion Room. This is a great idea!!

    I would also add in other themed rooms like:

    Alice in Wonderland
    Peter Pan
    Jungle Cruise
    Space Mountain
    Big Thunder Mountain

    Basically, any room themed after a ride or even a Disney film (if done correctly) would only add to the awesome experience of staying on site.

    I still think that I prefer if rooms fit the theme of the resort, and I definitely wouldn't want everything to have movie or ride themed rooms. Port Orleans Riverside, for example, has two different style of rooms that fit perfectly, and I'd hate to see them sacrificed.

    This does get me thinking that they maybe should consider a Magic Kingdom themed moderate resort, since I don't believe they've added a moderate in a while. That way they could design entire sections based on Haunted Mansion, Frontierland, etc., without disrupting the theme of existing locations. Sadly, I doubt we'll see any big developments until they're finished with the new "Art of Animation" resort.

    Haunted Mansion room all the way! I would be OK with the princess room, but jiminy christmas--the Haunted Mansion room is FAB-the wall sconces, the beds (those bedspreads!) the bust on the shelf (wouldn't it be cool if it moved?).
    So cool.

    The Haunted Mansion room looks cool, but I'd rather the resorts keep their original theming and keep the parks stuff for the parks.

    My very first thought was wondering how much they charge you for a missing bedspread.
