Which Disneyland Paris hotel is the best to stay in? 

On these page you’ll find my recommandation about the seven Disneyland Paris hotels in the Disneyland paris resort park. I have list all the Disneyland hotel in Paris: the nearest to the further. I have walked with my children to the different hotels in Disneyland Paris.

If you want more details and pictures, just click on the hotel name.  There is some more hotels around Disneyland Paris.  

You may also want to consider the room sizes:a familly with teenagers or with toddlers don't need the same room!

Think about your family’s morning or night routines.

Disneyland Hotel: the nearest, just above the entrance! 

- To get a full Disney experience with Disney Fastpass, 

- Great indoor pool, sauna, spa and fitness area. Spa available for all Disney hotel guest.

- Wifi access on some location and air conditionning.

- Personal meet-n-greets with Disney characters at your table.

- Free breakfast in the morning, you can overlook Main Street whilst having it.

 I recommand you to eat in the Inventions restaurant: it’s the only thing I have done in this hotel.

Get the Vip fastpass if you  book a suite or the castle club (big room,  private lift and reception).

Room available for at least 4 adults and 1 child. If you are more, you need a twin bedroom.

I am sur that it’s worth the extra expense to stay here but it’s not affordable for me and my 3 kids! I wish I could stay there one day!

My Disneyland Paris hotel review

  1. I came by train from paris to disneyland paris with 3 kids, a pushchair and a tired husband who had to carry all the suitcases all over the stairs. We got up early to enjoy the first day in the park. Departure at 8:00 from the hotel. We arrived at 9:00.
  2. We took the bus from marne la vallée station to Sequoia Lodge hotel. Big surprise when we arrived: we had to scan all the luggage under the X-ray. 1st queue with 3 tired kids.
  3. We finally get  into the hotel. 2nd line to get our 3 days-tickets + breakfast voucher + hotel key. 40 minutes! Bye bye the extra magic hours for the first day! But we were lucky: our bedroom were ready! Otherwise, you have to let your luggage in a storage room and take them back before 20:00 (I don't remember exactly the hours).
  4. We went in our room: nice, clean but small. We've just pack what we want for the first day.
  5. We walked from the hotel to the entrance (25 minutes walk). At 11:30 we were there! And guess what? My children said:" I am hungry mummy". I took it easy and  gave them the sandwiches I had prepared in the morning before leaving Paris.
  6. At 12:30, after taking the first fastpass (Buzz Lightyear ride-fastpass for 20:10!) we were in our first ride, happy.

Conclusion: the first day, you don't enjoy the extra hours + you miss the first morning. I can't imagine how it would have been if we had to come back for the luggage in the afternoon or for dinner. 

And of course, after the first day, we were very happy to sleep not too far the park.
