|Agreed, while cute, I too was hoping for something a little more authentic. The kids will love it. But that's the problem, disney is trying to only appeal to kids these days. Ironically disney used to quote how Walt did not talk down to kids. How times have changed, and definately not for the better. And people wonder why I rag on WDW?|

|As to the theeing of the beds, its not like Disney doesn't have reference for what a pirate bed should look like. In the Captain's Quarters at the beginning of Disneyland's POTC there is an example of what could be used for a pirate bed. Some of the rest of theming of that area could also be used to help decorate the hotel rooms.|

|Not to be a argumentative person, even though I am capable of it, wouldn't a "real" pirate sleep on hammocks or straw bunks?|
If I am not confusing the scene, isn't that bed in the POTC a bed of a rich person that the pirates are pillaging? How does one get authentic in a fantasy?

|I always thought the bed in PotC was that of a very comfortable pirate after years of successful plundering.|
These rooms are kind of cute, but it feels more like what a non Disney resort (Holiday Inn, Alton Towers) would do. I expected more from WDW.
But have you guys seen the new water play area at the CBR? It looks like Hojo Anaheim or McD's rather than Disney too. They have truly seemed to have lost their way.
