Fresh off re-introducing The Mousepad at the Disneyland Hotel, Disney has is focusing on yet another specialty suite--The Pirates of the Caribbean Suite.

The Disney Blog has the detes on what sort of "buried" treasure the 11th floor suite holds:

The Pirates experience begins as you ring the doorbell, which plays, “Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life For Me,” and enter the living room. There you will find Old World rugs covering dark-stained hardwood floors, with wooden beams overhead. The Spanish colonial-style furnishings could be part of a pirate’s plunder, yet the room also provides landlubbers’ comforts including a wet bar, 42-inch plasma TV and surround sound stereo system.

The suite's in-room amenities also include a replica of Captain Jack Sparrow’s revolver, rare pirate figurines (discontinued) from the popular Walt Disney Classics Collection, a lithograph signed by Disney Legend “X” Atencio (Lyricist for the song for “Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life For Me”) and a replica of the mysterious Davy Jones’ “Dead Man’s Chest." These are all in a locked display case of course.

The only problem is, this suite is over three years old and it doesn't look like anything's been added to it since we last wrote about it. And even back then it didn't really seem as swashbuckling and exotic as today's "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise is. Maybe they should add a Captain Jack Sparrow walk-in closet where you could play dress-up as well?

Looking to shack up at the Disneyland Hotel but can't afford Captain Sparrow's accommodations? (The suite goes for $2,500 a night.) Regular rooms start at $274 a night but according to a recent Foursquare tipster on the Disneyland Hotel hotel page we learned this:

Beware the Wonder Tower right now. That's the building currently under renovation, and it was quite disappointing. I'm sure it'll be great when it's done, but right now...yikes...

That said, we're really happy the hotel is undergoing some renovations. Judging by the photos on the website, they really needed it!

Interested in booking this suite for the pirate in your life, call the Disneyland Hotel at (714) 956-6425.
