    New Rooms Types coming to Walt Disney World.

    Disney announced their intentions to upgrade some rooms in the Contemporary and Port Orleans to cater to different guest tastes.

    The new Contemporary "Health and Wellness Suites" will feature bamboo flooring, 100-percent cotton linens, non-allergenic wrapped mattresses – as well as views of the Magic Kingdom and Bay Lake. Bathrooms on this floor also will be equipped with rainwater showers and tea tree oils. Cardio Equipment will be in the rooms as well.

    Meanwhile, Port Orleans will follow the popular Pirates of the Caribbean rooms in the Caribbean Beach resort with Royal Guest Rooms. These rooms will include ornate beds that feature headboards with fiber-optic special effects, and gold and crystal accents. Guests also can enjoy artwork and special mementos left by Tiana’s royal friends.

    The plan is to have them open by March 2012.

    The new Contemporary "Health and Wellness Suites" sounds very nice for the people who are more into exercising. I don't know well the new Port of Orleans POTC rooms will go for most fans and same goes for the princess rooms (would have made a bit more sense to have the Princess ones at The Grand Floridan, mainly because of the hotel's location close the Magic Kingdom.)

    It's interesting that they don't specify which Port Orleans however; I'd assume French Quarter, or maybe some in each?

    I would assume Riverside since it has twice as many rooms as FQ.

    True, but I think the theming fits better in FQ. I guess we'll have to wait and see...

    Re: New Rooms Types coming to Walt Disney World.

    I really really like the look of the Health and wellness suites. I think it fits the contemporary theme perfectly.



    The Princess rooms however... eh. I can see Princess and the Frog at Port Orleans, but theres also going to be Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin themed rooms. Not to sure about those for this resort.


    From wdwmagic.com:
    Some of the theming will include:
    Bathroom faucets in the shape of Aladdin's lamp
    Luggage bench in the shape of Sultan the dog that turns into a bench from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
    Ornately decorated beds that include headboards with fiber optic special effects and gold and crystal accents
    Custom bed coverings and drapes that create a more luxurious "royal" experience
    Unique, in-room artwork featuring Tiana and her royal visitors

    Hmmm... Those suites would have to be up on the 14th floor.

    The story is the other princesses are visiting Tiana, so I think it's jsut going to be all princesses in the same room; no specific princess rooms.

    Agreed. One of the 2 concierge floors (probably the 14th) will be the ones changed to the Wellness suites.

    Exciting enhancements also are taking place over at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, with 512 Royal Guest Rooms planned to debut by March 2012. The story behind these lush rooms is that Princess Tiana (“The Princess and The Frog”) invited some of her royal pals – Belle (“Beauty and the Beast”), Jasmine (“Aladdin”) and more – for a vacation getaway. Princes and princesses of all ages can enjoy their luxurious lodging quarters, which will include ornate beds that feature headboards with fiber-optic special effects, and gold and crystal accents. Guests also can enjoy artwork and special mementos left by Tiana’s royal friends.
    Dear god, what a lame "background story" for these suites! I'm surprised they're lavishing so much attention on the lower grade hotels when meanwhile the Grand Floridian is slowly apart at the seams.

    Why in the world does a hotel room need a backstory?

    The Contemporary rooms look amazing. I want to live there.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    They'll do anything these days to shoehorn in some characters, especially princesses!

    I think this is a good thing. Keeping hotel rooms fresh all around is a great thing.

    I am curious as to how Tiana travels through time to have a party with the other Disney Princesses®. Delorian? TARDIS? Circle K telephone booth?
