The Official Disney Parks Blog has just announced that there will be two new specialty rooms available for vacationers looking for a little extra magic or relaxation on their next trip to Disney World.
Health & Wellness Suites at the Contemporary Resort:
These guest suites will offer the best in relaxation and healthyliving. According to the blog the suites "will feature bamboo flooring, 100-percent cotton linens, non-allergenicwrapped mattresses- as well as great views of Magic Kingdom Park and Bay Lake." The bathrooms will also be equipped with special rainwater showers and tea tree oils. Guests staying in these suites can also enjoy having cardio equipment in their room, and access to special organic food options in the concierge lounge. Take a look at these pictures for the updated decor as well!
I think it is fair to say that these suites will come with a premium price tag! Magic Kindom views, and access to the concierge suite doesn't come cheap! It will be interesting to see how these room book when they are made available this summer.
I like the idea of another suite option on property. Our family of five really has limited options, but I'm not sure if this is the right fit for us. I really like the decor though, and we love the convenience of the Contemporary, but I think we will just stick with the villas over at Bay Lake Tower for now.
Royal Guest Rooms at Port Orleans French Quarter:
Down in the Bayou guests will soon be able to book a special Royal Guest Room, and be a guest of Princess Tiana! Over 500 of the guest rooms at POFQ will get this special Princess makeover featuring ornate bedding and decor, as well as special fiber optic headboards. These rooms are set to be ready for March of 2012. Just in time for the Spring Break crowds!
I think these rooms will book really well, and Disney must think so too if they are willing to renovate half of the rooms at the resort to this theme. The pirate themed rooms at Caribbean Beach have done well, there is no reason to think that these won't surpass those.
French Quarter was the first moderate resort we stayed at and was our favorite resort until we experienced deluxe resort living. I am glad to see that Disney is investing the money to bring life into the resort that seems to get lost in the formidable shadow of its Port Orleans neighbor Riverside.
The blog also throws in a little hint about the upcoming Art of Animation Resort, saying that there will be more specialty rooms coming online when it opens in May of next year. That should be very interesting, especially since half of the rooms of that resort have been said to be family suites.
