Throwback Thursday // Disney's Port Orleans Riverside ROYAL ROOM Tour!

Happy Thursday, friends!  I think this day could use a dash of pixie dust, so I'm delighted to throw it back to a post featuring one of the most magical guest rooms on Disney property.  I hope you enjoy the tour!

Disney's Port Orleans Riverside ROYAL ROOM Tour!
Originally published here on November 25, 2013

Today I'm pleased to give you a detailed tour of the Royal Room we had the pleasure of calling "home" for two weeks during our recent trip to Walt Disney World!

Oak Manor, Port Orleans Riverside Resort

Aren't the trees that line the pathways so beautiful?

Welcome to our {temporary} royal abode!

Just outside our room

C'mon in, friends!

I loved using my MagicBand {instead of a key} to get into our room!

Read this lovely letter from our hostess, Princess Tiana, for the story behind the theming of the Royal Rooms.  

The letter and envelope are part of the table.  The scroll shown above is our printed copy.

Spectacular Beds for our Sleeping Beauties 

A simple touch of the button on the side of each headboard sets off a fireworks spectacular!

Can you tell whose crowns these are?

Disney magic is in the details! Here are some of our favorites...

Gifts to Princess Tiana from the Disney Princesses:  A 3D holographic picture with the initials "SW" carved at the bottom of its wooden frame from Snow White,  carriage coat rack from Cinderella,  "Magic Carpet" from Princess Jasmine,  footstool {bench} from Belle

More details: Hidden Mickeys in both the light fixture and curtains, princely banners, and an entertainment center showcasing golden details from The Princess and The Frog.

Other royal guests and friends of Princess Tiana

The ever impressive, the long-contained, the often imitated, but never duplicated, duplicated, duplicated, duplicated ... Genie of the Lamp!
 Aladdin is my favorite animated Disney movie, so this is a favored detail!  If I were granted three wishes, one of them would be to have this faucet at home! 

The shower curtain was a gift from Ariel.   Look at the who's its and what's its galore!  Do you notice a few hidden Mickeys on the tile?  The back of the tub reminds me of the stars above the bathtub in Cinderella Castle Suite.

Each evening a Disney movie is shown in the Oak Manor courtyard.

 I snapped this photo from the doorway of our room.

What a magical way to end to any day at Port Orleans Riverside!

I hope you enjoyed this tour of our recent home-away-from-home!

  4. OH, so magical! I absolutely LOVE POR! I cannot wait to go back! The pixie dusted details at Disney never cease to amaze me!
