Resort Hotels Spotlight: Adventureland-Themed Rooms and Resorts

This week we’ve looked at great Adventureland-themed entertainment – both live and animatronic – as well as awesome places to grab a drink or a bite to eat that are themed to Adventureland attractions. But what if you want to really immerse yourself in Adventureland theming all night long? What are your options at either the Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resorts?

Surprisingly, the answer is quite a few! And at varying prices too!

Let’s start by looking at the Disneyland Hotel…

Recently, the three towers of the hotel were re-branded to: Adventure, Fantasy and Frontier. So one third of the Disneyland Hotel itself is already themed to Adventureland!

But if themed lobbies and displays in public areas aren’t quite enough for you, there are two really high-end options available at the Disneyland Hotel – either the Adventureland or the Pirates of the Caribbean Signature Suites!

Here you can be fully immersed in either in the gorgeous and very masculine Jungle Cruise-inspired décor of the Adventureland Signature Suite – or in the luxurious buccaneering stylings of the Pirates of the Caribbean Signature Suite – fit for a Pirate King and his crew!

But such fantastical options may be out of some/most/almost everyone’s price range.  So what if you REALLY want a Pirates of the Caribbean themed room but can’t afford a Signature Suite at the Disneyland Hotel?

Well, mateys, best be setting sail for the Walt Disney World Resort – and specifically for the Caribbean Beach Resort! This moderate resort, while one of the larger, more widely laid-out hotels at Walt Disney World, offers specially-themed Pirate rooms at a much more appealing price point!

These rooms feature beds shaped like pirate ships amongst other fun nautical touches!

But you don’t have to stay in one of the Pirate-themed rooms. You could alternately enjoy the Caribbean flavor that the rest of the resort has to offer in its regular non-Disney-themed rooms.

Now, pirates and the Caribbean are all well and good, you might say. But what you may love best about Adventureland is the more tropical or Polynesian side of it! Well, then there’s an obvious spot for you to stay while in Orlando: the deluxe Polynesian Village Resort! Like walking right into the Enchanted Tiki Room, the Polynesian is a mix of lush foliage, Tiki decorations and even has its own beach and luau – Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show (definitely on my “Disney Do” list of shows I want to see!)

Plus they have their own Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto for when you just need that Disney Adventureland theming – or a tropical drink! – and you’re not in the park itself!

Well, clever theming is a joy to behold, it’s true. But what if you wanted to actually go to the South Seas to have a real tropical Disney getaway? Then it might be time to pack your bags and head to Aulani, Disney’s Hawaiian Resort & Spa!

Aulani offers a taste of the Hawaiian culture and location, matched with Disney characters and theming. There are adventurous experiences to be had here like the scavenger hunt to find Menehune (the legendary mischievous and magical little people of Hawaii). And, for you Disney dessert fans – yes, you can get a Dole Whip at Aulani!

So no matter what part of Adventureland tugs at your heart, there are plenty of Disney Resort opportunities for you to choose from!

Have you stayed at any of these Adventureland-related locations? Or are there any that you’d like to try?
