Princess Rooms at Disney. Very Cool.

As a former tomboy, I have always been a bit baffled by the whole princess phenomena.  The dresses, the tiaras, the fancy shoes and the accessories....just not me.  I always imagined that I would have a few boys and we would spend weekends in the back yard tossing a football and getting dirty.  I am sure God was chuckling at my idea when he sent me not one, but two of the girliest girls on the planet.  If they had their way the world would be pink, purple, sequined, beaded, and bedazzled.  While I am certainly much "girlier" now than I was a child, I still do not know how to play Barbie, I am not sure what to do at a pretend tea party, and sacrificing comfort for style at age 4 is just beyond me.   So what is a former tomboy mom supposed to do?  I guess the answer is what almost every other parent in the world has done... submit to the whims and desires of their offspring.  So, hello Disney Princesses, I guess I am now on board.  Which,  I guess,  means Disney made an exciting announcement yesterday...

According to the Official Disney Parks Blog:

Exciting enhancements also are taking place over at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, with 512 Royal Guest Rooms planned to debut by March 2012. The story behind these lush rooms is that Princess Tiana (“The Princess and The Frog”) invited some of her royal pals – Belle (“Beauty and the Beast”), Jasmine (“Aladdin”) and more – for a vacation getaway. Princes and princesses of all ages can enjoy their luxurious lodging quarters, which will include ornate beds that feature headboards with fiber-optic special effects, and gold and crystal accents. Guests also can enjoy artwork and special mementos left by Tiana’s royal friends.

 So if the new princess motif is not for you, perhaps you would be interested in some of the new rooms coming to the Contemporary?

Again from the Disney Parks Blog:

Beginning this fall, guests looking for some rest and relaxation can indulge in new health and wellness suites, which will debut at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. These suites will feature bamboo flooring, 100-percent cotton linens, non-allergenic wrapped mattresses – as well as great views of Magic Kingdom Park and Bay Lake. Bathrooms on this floor also will be equipped with rainwater showers and tea tree oils. Guests staying in these suites also can enjoy the benefit of having cardio equipment right in their room. And they’ll have daily access to seasonal and organic fresh foods at the concierge lounge, and can enjoy yoga sessions and spa treatments at the resort’s renovated wellness studio.

 So what do you think?  My guess it that the princess rooms will be quite popular.  A fun room at a moderate hotel?  Sounds like a winner to me!  I am not so sure about the rooms at the Contemporary.  First of all, it sounds very pricey.  I am sure it will appeal to a certain segment of the population, but an entire floor?  I am no paragon of fitness (I say as I pop a second Hershey's Kiss into my mouth), but I have no problem getting in my daily exercise just bopping around the parks!

It sounds like some of these new premium rooms will be available for booking soon!  Let me know if you would like me to add you to a notification list.  I will be happy to book your vacation as soon as they are released...and I will gladly offer up some column space if you would like to write up a review of your experience!

So...are you read to get your princess on?
