Port Orleans Riverside Royal Guest Rooms
Give your prince or princess a treat when you choose to stay in one of these stately rooms. The Royal Guest Rooms place your family in the middle of some of your favorite Disney stories. Brought to life by celebrated Disney Characters, each room is fit for royalty.
Enjoy magnificent touches and magical surprises, including custom drapes and linens, ornately decorated beds and headboards that glitter with fibre optic lights, creating your own personal “fireworks” display. Discover majesty and fun, all rolled into one!
As The Princess and the Frog was set in New Orleans, the Port Orleans Resort seemed a natural fit for these new story themed rooms. During your stay, discover special mementos left by Tiana’s royal friends from classic Disney animated films such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. For example, the bathroom faucets are in the shape of the genie’s lamp from Aladdin and the luggage bench is in the shape of Sultan, the dog that was turned into a bench in Beauty and the Beast. And does that ‘rug’ on the carpet look familiar?
During creative development of these storybook rooms, Disney characters and storylines were chosen that should remain “evergreen” and maintain their relevance over time. Attributes to the room include:
- Ornately decorated beds that include headboards with fibre optic special effects and gold and crystal accents.
- Custom bed coverings and drapes that create a more luxurious, “royal” experience.
- Unique in-room artwork featuring Tiana and her royal visitors.
- All rooms feature two queen-size beds. Note: there are no King Bed rooms in this section, nor any facilities for extra roll-away beds.
We are so excited to have you stay with us.
My friends and I have shared so many wonderful moments here that this has become a very special place in our hearts.
As you make yourself at home, you’ll discover some treasured mementoes my friends have given me over the years.
Enjoy making magical memories with your friends and family in my Royal Guest Room.
Your Friend, Princess Tiana

Building Floorplans and Room Interior Layouts
Located within the elegant Magnolia Bend district of Port Orleans Riverside, two three-story mansion buildings — Oak Manor and Parterre Place, shown in red below — have been completely devoted to this new type of specialty room. Each of the two 256-room buildings consists of a central three-story structure and four two-story wing sections. The elevators are located in the central area, next to the main entrance.
The Royal Rooms come in four category options: Standard (mostly parking lot views), Garden View, Pool View (which are centrally located and offer convenient access to the main buildings) and River View. There are no King Bed rooms or Preferred Location rooms in the royal buildings.
Please click on either of the red buildings in the map below to view a more detailed floorplan layout of each Royal Guest Room building with all the category options listed, or you can download a PDF file containing all four of the mansion buildings.
(Note: adjacent rooms are mirror images of each other, so connecting doorways are always located beside the beds)
