Disney World is known for having immersive theming in its theme parks and resorts. They want you to feel completely separated from daily life when you vacation there and give you the opportunity to live out your favorite Disney stories.
There are even a few types of resort rooms that continue the story in the actual room you sleep in!
Here is a selection of our favorite themed rooms at the Disney World Resorts.
Disney World Resorts Best Themed Resorts
Royal Guest Rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside
Tiana and her princess pals have decorated these standard rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside with rich colors and stately fabrics. Ornately carved details on the furniture and crown molding make it clear that this is a room fit for royalty. In fact, each of the princesses have left behind a little something that reminds you of their story from their prior visits. The real star here, though, are the headboards that light up with fireflies and fireworks in a scene reminiscent of The Princess and the Frog movie.
Pirate Rooms at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
Have you ever wanted to sleep in a pirate ship bed? Your Caribbean adventure at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort allows you to do just that! In these rooms that are fit for a buccaneer, you’ll find an enormous pirate treasure map on floor, barrels, lanterns and other seafarer décor. Once you settle in, you can discover hidden treasures and nautical details throughout the room that place you and your family right in the middle of swashbuckling action. We especially love the skull and crossbones on the curtain separating the vanity area from the sleeping area and the small carved skulls that adorn the bath mirror!

Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
This resort has suites themed after Cars, The Lion King, and Finding Nemo in the suites.
You will feel like you’ve joined Lightning McQueen and his pals on Route 66 from the moment you step into this highly themed resort room, themed after Cars! With a black and white checkered floor, and a garage/tool chest themed living area with traffic cone lamps, you’ll definitely feel as though you are staying at the Cozy Cone in the world of Pixar’s Cars. We love having a separate bedroom and the ability to sleep up to 6 adults in one room. The pull-down wall bed revealing a snoozing Mater and the “spiffy in a jiffy” quote on the bathroom mirrors always put a smile on our faces.
We love all three of these suite themes. This resort also offers Standard Rooms in The Little Mermaid theme.
Copper Creek Cascade Cabins
Copper Creek Cascade Cabins are standalone vacation homes built along the bank of Bay Lake at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge / Copper Creek. There are 26 of these private waterfront quarters—each with a screened-in wraparound porch with a built-in hot tub. These accommodations are uniquely designed to be rustic, yet elegant. They offer the perfect “outdoorsy” adventure while giving you all the comforts of home – actually better than most homes!
These 2-Bedroom/2-Bathroom accommodations can sleep up to 8 Guests in 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Queen-Size Sleeper Sofa, 1 Single Pull Down Bed and 1 Twin-Size Sleeper Chair. The cabins are perfectly spacious, but cozy at the same time.
We can’t get enough of the double-sided stone-hearth fireplace and the gigantic shower with rainfall shower head. The wood ceilings and floors give you the feeling of staying in a true-life log cabin. And it’s so peaceful and quiet on the water early in the morning and late at night, the theming of a quiet cabin in the woods become the real thing.
Polynesian Village Bora Bora Bungalows
Disney’s Polynesian Village was one of the original resorts at Walt Disney World opening in 1971 and inspired by Walt Disney himself. We aren’t sure if Walt would have ever imagined that the resort would one day have over-the-water bungalows like those found in the South Pacific, but today, you can find these incredible private vacation bungalows along the shore of Seven Sea Lagoon! Each is a private vacation home with 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Queen-Size Sleeper Sofa and 2 Single Pull Down Beds — sleeping up to 8 Adults. Each of the two bedrooms is decorated in a classy, but beachy style with Polynesian touches. We especially love the surfboard headboard and the bathrooms with cool, ocean blue tiles.
The dark woods remind us of Polynesian longboats and the ceiling details make it feel like you are really in a =hut in Bora Bora. These bungalows with their own plunge pool, and deck from which you can watch fireworks or the Electrical Water Pageant, provide an escape to paradise with a perfectly themed delivery. It’s a real tropical paradise!
Reflecting on this list, we can’t help but notice there’s quite a variety of themed room styles and choices available at Disney World. There’s nearly something for everyone!
