Many people know about the famed Cinderella Suite way up high in Cinderella Castle. But if you can’t nab the special invitation from Disney that it takes to stay there, you can still indulge your inner Royalty with a stay in a Royal Room at Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside Resort!
Upon check-in, you’re presented with a special letter from Princess Tiana, your hostess (the perfect Princess for this resort’s theme).

Once inside, you’ll see the space is fit for royalty!
I thought the bedding and headboard were lovely.
Here’s a hint… if you push a button on the side of the board, you get your very own fiber-optics fireworks display!
The room is packed to the brim with details. There are tributes to Tiana’s friends all over the room…
There are also gifts to Tiana from her fellow Princesses. Her portrait is framed in a gift from Snow White:
Jasmine provided a Magic Carpet…
And I’m assuming the shower curtain must be from Ariel, judging by the symbols all over the curtain ;).
Cinderella’s Coach adorns the bag & coat hook.
The Princes get a small nod, too!
The more you look around, the more you’ll see… even the room border features characters from some of the Princess films!
One of my favorite details is in the bathroom. The sink faucets are Genie lamps from Aladdin!
I also liked the gems mixed in with the lighting fixtures.
No stone was left unturned in the decorating of these rooms.
Hidden Mickeys :)
I felt most like royalty when we brought in pizza so I wouldn’t have to leave the room other than to swim :) !
The “Royal Treatment” doesn’t end when you exit the room, though. The sections of Port Orleans – Riverside dedicated to Royal Rooms have some extra special touches including lighted fountains, beautiful rose gardens, and twinkling trees at night.
Royal Rooms aren’t the only themed rooms in Walt Disney World. Caribbean Beach Resort features “Pirate Rooms.” So whether ye be pirate or princess ;), there is a place for you!
Well, here we are. Staying in a Royal Room was the very first item on my Disney Bucket List. I only have one more thing left to cross off My Magic 100.
I’ll see you here next week ;) .
