    Disney conducted an email survey not to long ago and several of the questions asked about the viability of a Haunted Mansion Room.

    When I took the survey, I didn't get the impression they were adding them at an existing hotel but rather that they were being considered for a yet to be built hotel.

    Perhaps a real "Hollywood Towers" hotel would crop up...?

    I took the survey as well, and got the opposite impression - that it was for rooms to be redecorated, similar to the pirate rooms at CBR. The way I remember it, all the wording in the survey asked about room decor, not a hotel theme.

    Either way, I wouldn't delay booking my hotel reservations for 2011 due to the survey. If indeed Disney chooses to refurb rooms in one or more of these themes, it will take a while. Years, if they are building another resort (not likely, they still haven't finished Pop). You can always book, and switch to the new rooms when they become available.

    I also took the survey and got the impression they were looking at it from the perspective of room refurbs and not a brand new resort.

    With the new animation resort, I cannot fathom them starting construction on a new resort any time soon.

    In addition, they filed paperwork for refurbs at POR and POFQ two months ago; but have yet to even start. The rumor is that it has been pushed back to Spring 2011. The paperwork is very vague, but does state the refurbs will begin no later than March 2011.

    So I wouldn't hinge making reservations on the hope that there might even begin to be a whole entire new room category in one of the resorts. As a matter of fact, if they do wait until March to start POFQ, in April 2011, you may be there in the middle of a refurb.
