Which Resort Is Right For Me? Princess Edition

When planning a Disney vacation it’s important to find the resort that fits your needs and the needs of your family.  That’s why I’m putting together a series of posts that help you decide which resort is right for you.

If you’re like me, you fancy yourself a Disney Princess, or maybe you have a little one in your life who has princess-like qualities. You might consider these resorts for your next trip:

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort – Deluxe

You can feel like a true princess in these elegant surroundings located a short boat ride or monorail ride from the Magic Kingdom.  Most rooms have two queen beds and a daybed.  Plus, if you make reservations at 1900 Park Fare located on site, you can even have a meal with Cinderella without leaving your resort!  For the littlest royals, there’s an Alice in Wonderland themed splash pad in the pool area.

Port Orleans Riverside Royal Guest Room – Moderate

If you’re a fan of Princess Tiana, you definitely want to stay in this room outfitted with some amazing “princessy” touches.  The centerpiece of this room is the light up LED headboard above each of the queen sized beds.  With intricate carvings and plush carpets and even gold faucets shaped like the Genie’s lamp, your princess will feel pampered and right at home.

Art of Animation Little Mermaid room – Value

If your princess is more at home under the sea, you’ll definitely feel like part of this world. Fans of Ariel will adore the the attention to detail, like the seashell headboards, Prince Eric artwork, and the sheet music to Under The Sea embedded on the table.  Rooms include either two double beds or one king bed.  This resort includes the largest resort pool on Disney property.  There are even speakers so you can listen to music under water!

As always, one of the Dole Whipped team would be delighted to help you plan any aspect of your vacation.  You can reach us at dolewhipped @ gmail.com.
