Sure. I'll try and grab some when we go back to the room. Will need to learn how to attach pics as I haven't done that before. They're nice, but the old ones made more sense in regards to the story in my opinion.

EDIT: See pics below

Pics taken on my phone, so sorry for the quality. New pics on wall. Picture of Tiana is still 3D, but I much preferred the old one with the manor in the background and all the princesses sitting together with Belle giving Tiana a replica of Cogs worth

No more bedspreads. Hopefully a runner at the foot of the beds are still to come.

Wow! The princess room looks so different without the bedspread!

Thought I wouldn't mind the sheet look but it is awful, especially in the Royal rooms- the decorator at Disney who made that call should be fired. Come on Disney makes enough profit to at least get colored duvet covers or something-I don't think a scarf will help. I do not like the stiff comforters either but I am not one who just sleeps with a sheet- is there an option to request an extra blanket? My husband likes to sleep with the cool air on and I will freeze! We are driving so I could bring my own if we have to.

We are staying in AB and I can handle (and actually might prefer) not having a bedspread. As for the princess rooms...that picture makes me really sad!

Wow, I totally agree with you...the white in the Royal Rooms looks really awful. File it under 'first world problems', but I'm very disappointed.

It looks unfinished, no? Like someone forgot the cover.

Are the pillows at POR also soft and mushy? If so is it possible to request firm pillows upon arrival. I really don't want to take our own pillows as we're flying but if there isn't a firm option we may just do that!

Thanks.
So funny. I *want* a soft and mushy pillow. Hotel pillows, including the ones at POR, are huge and hard and make me feel that my head/neck is at a 90 degree angle to my body and I wake with a horrifying headache.

From my experience, you'll love the pillows at POR.

But I think that for any of us with specific needs for our sweet dainty noggins, we need to travel with our own pillows.

I can't even handle the new look. We spent a good amount of our in-room chatting time making fun of the new look. Aurora, especially, doesn't really look like a sweet young princess anymore. I will stop myself there.





Ariel's head looks like a kewpie doll.














Painful. Especially the neck posture; I feel like I'm looking at FB selfies. Next redo of their faces is going to involve duck-face or the new "baby bird" look, I just know it.

Oh dear . . . that is not attractive. I'm not a fan of bedspreads, but that's just plain awful. What were they thinking?

Is there a blanket underneath the top sheet or is it literally just sheets?

Oh my, that's terrible. Also, I like to "get lost" in my blankets. Plain old sheets won't work for me. I hope there are blankets available. I will want at least 2 for myself, lol!

I personally wouldn't. When this fridge replacement situation came up a few months ago, I wasn't too worried because I figured that surely by my Thanksgiving trip it would all be good, but from what Andre said in a pretty recent post, it doesn't sound like we can count on that.

Ugh. I know your are right. We booked a king bed room and I had requested Riverview. I'm thinking I should probably change the request to "close to main building" so it won't be a huge hike to get coffee in the morning. Bummer.

I agree. I'm not loving this new look and am a bit disappointed.
