I hope that they eventually replace them, the room definitely needs the pop of color!
Would you mind posting a pic?

We always take the comforters off as soon as we get there and have them taken away for the duration of our stay, But I do love the look of them and don't think the room has much character without them.

Now that I actually have a date (May 2014!) I am so excited that I can't stand it. I will likely have a ton of questions as the date approches, so I will beg your indulgence in advance.


You can be sure you will find lots of wonderful info here and otherDIS threads. Half the fun of a trip is in the planning.

Thanks

**never mind found the old closed thread with the picture and there is a gallon of milk in the fridge**
We had a gallon of milk- fit easily with room to spare in Oct 2013

I also hate when hotels don't use fitted sheets as I am a leg mover in my sleep and just tucking in a regular sheet on bottom means that I will have clumped up sheets under my legs.
I know at the CBR, they took a portion of the bright bedspreads and made a throw type thing at the end of the bed. Okay, so that's not a great description so I'll post a picture:

I agree. It does look a bit unfinished. But, from Disney's standpoint, I am sure it is easier to stick with just the white bedding which can be used at any of their resorts. Still, it takes away from the "theme" of the resorts.

Beach Club had the white bedding with the light blue bed scarf (I think that's what they're called - like in the CBR pic) and it looked really nice. POFQ really needs to do that with the purple & gold fabric. I don't mind losing the bedspread, but they need to keep that bit of color/themeing.

I agree it looks rather plain and boring when you're used to the lush deep theming that the room décor was designed to contain.

Plain white bedcovers are for hospitals, dormitories, or cheap motels - or perhaps for modern chic designs - but not for something that is meant to be themed to look like New Orleans from the 1800s.

Looking forward (I think...) to seeing a photo of how it looks at Port Orleans though.

I was just in Alligator Bayou 10/11 - 10/14 and all we had were white bedspreads/sheets. I didn't even know that was "wrong"! I'll see if we took a pic, but it didn't bother me any. Perhaps cause I didn't know any better?

It's ironic that just after reading and posting about the new bedding, I receive a Facebook notification from one of the Louisiana casinos who specialize in "luxurious accommodations" which include a picture of their new rooms and the following message "We're known as luxurious & legendary for a reason. With the completion of our hotel room renovations, we've given legendary a whole new meaning! "

Actually, if you look at higher-end hotels, a LOT of them are going to this concept. Honestly, I bet the sheets and blankets get washed a whole lot more often than those big, heavy bedspreads! I think that's part of the appeal.

You're right. Hopefully they will keep some color on there at the end of the bed!

I'm sure, but these are decorative over-spreads (like curtains, chair covers, carpets, etc) so that doesn't really bother me unduly.

It's fine by me I prefer the white so you can check for bugs much easier . I had a weird bug in our room last year and it turned out to be some sort of carpet/furniture beetle
