Pics of POR Royal Room (DH was a good sport in the perty princess room!)

Yeah, there was no way I was gonna tell DH we were staying in a princess room for 2 nights before our DVC stay! We were there beginning of February 2013, I think he is over it now. "Really, hun? You needed to pay extra to for lights the dang headboard??"

Just kidding (sort of). We both love this resort. It's got a lot of great things going for it, food court, multiple pools, nice pool bar, great indoor bar, food court and sit down restaurant, great theming, riverboat to downtown, close walk to French Quarter resort, carriage rides. yeah, I could go on and on.

Anyway, here are some pics, and a video of the "dang lights on headboard"!!



















told you...he's not quite the "oh boy! a princess room!" kinda guy! he was a pretty good sport tho.

Great photos! I can't wait to see my daughters face when we get to the Royal Rooms. She's going to lose it (in the best possible way)! I just wish I didn't have to wait 8 months!

glad you are all enjoying the pics, and yep! she will probably lose it when she sees it!

A few minutes after we got into the room, my husband called his brother... "Dude, you are not gonna believe this, just when you thought you'd seen it all, this place is crazy!"...

my wife and I along with my two daughters (4 & 5) stayed in a royal room last April. I think we were the first people to ever stay in the newly renovated room. it was a big hit.

the grounds are beautiful.

It sure did, it was great...I've seen photos on many sites but never knew they lit up like that until I saw your video and you can only appreciate it if you see the video...now I'm wishing I booked a Royal Room...I'd lay in bed the other way and watch those fireworks all night LOL!!

Thank you so much for posting the pictures!

My DH and I are going in May to pick up our Disney College Program daughter. We have to leave the other kids behind because of school. This is the first time we won't have to get two rooms so I decided to have my daughter make reservations in a Royal Room.

I am so excited. But at the same time I feel a lot guilt that my Princesses and Prince left at home won't get to enjoy the room.
