Two resorts at Walt Disney World will soon be offering new themed rooms, adding another option for guests who want to customize their Disney experience even further.

512 rooms at Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort will be converted to Royal Guest Rooms by March 2012, just in time for the first phase of Fantasyland to open. These rooms are decorated in royal hues of deep blues and golds, and include lots of special touches inspired by the Disney princesses and their friends. According to the Disney Parks Blog, the theme for the rooms was created when "Princess Tiana invited some of her royal pals for a vacation getaway." Fiber-optic accents in the headboards and other nods to favorite Disney princesses makes these rooms fit for any prince or princess.

Some rooms at Disney's Contemporary Resort will also be getting a makeover beginning this fall. The hotel's 14th floor will be converted to "health and wellness suites", featuring bamboo floors and non-allergenic mattresses and linens. Suites will have cardio exercise equipment in their rooms and guests will have access to the concierge lounge, fully stocked with seasonal, organic food. A newly renovated wellness studio will offer yoga classes and spa treatments.

Disney currently offers very popular pirate-themed rooms at Caribbean Beach Resort. These rooms go for a premium of up to $30 extra per night, proving that guests will pay for a more custom experience.
