Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort started offering guests pirate-themed rooms last year and they’ve been a success. Now Disney is considering adding more themed rooms to some of their resorts, such as a Royal Room and even a Haunted Mansion themed room.
Dr. James Martin and his family recently stayed at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Upon their return home, they were sent a online survey by Disney asking about their stay. The survey went on to ask if they’d be interested in staying at a moderately priced resort that would be themed to a specific attraction or character. The choices presented were a Haunted Mansion Room, a Royal Room and a Pirates of the Carribean Room. (Photos provided by Dr. James Martin.)
The survey first provided a description of each room, then two photos of each and asked how likely they’d be to stay in each room. Here’s the description of the Haunted Mansion room:
Come spend the night with a few of the happy haunts who play in an enchanted bedroom inspired by the Haunted Mansion. Rest atop the floating Doom Buggy beds with a couple of friendly spooks and watch glow-in-the-dark, cartoon-like footsteps mysteriously appear as the evening sets in. A sliding bookcase creates a hidden passage to the bathroom and is the perfect hiding place for a hitch-hiking ghost. Oversized furnishings with curvy lines and bright colors add to the whimsy in the room. Guests will delight in finding the hidden special effects that play up the merry, rather than scary, room ambiance.
The survey went on to ask which was their favorite (Dr. Martin chose the Haunted Mansion) and what they liked and didn’t like about each room.
So which is your favorite? Would your kids be too scared to stay in a Haunted Mansion room? Would your sons think the Royal Room is too girly? Keep in mind that these are just concepts and depending on the survey answers and other factors, these rooms may never get built or may look nothing like the concepts renderings or descriptions.
