Disneyland Paris has to be on most kids’ bucket list of things to do; it’s one of the most popular family attractions in all Europe, attracting a staggering several million families a year to its twin theme parks; Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Once you’ve splashed the cash and decided you’re all off to meet the characters from Disney you need to decide where you’re going to stay, and the choice is enormous!
Scroll down for our hand-picked recommendations for hotels to stay in.
There are two camps here; the ‘love it’ or ‘loathe it’ and if you’re a member of the first camp and have decided to succumb and go all out, you can prepare yourself for a couple of days of over the top Disneymania by choosing a themed hotel to keep the fantasy going and score extra brownie points from the kids. Disneyland® Hotel is a popular choice as it’s only a 3-minute walk from the park and is a fairytale vision with pink turrets and FASTPASS® tickets with some rooms - in busy months the queues for the rides can get big so this is a definite bonus. Slightly further away you’ll find Disney’s Newport Bay Club®, this is a 15-minute walk to the park but there is a free shuttle bus operating and the peaceful grounds its set in may be a welcome relief after a day at the Park. Younger kids will love the pirate-themed Alonquin’s Explorers Hotel with its huge indoor adventure playground.
The range of accommodation to choose from is huge and while close to the Park you’ll find Disney-themed hotels galore, if you’re after a break from Mickey once the Park gates have closed head further afield to find the likes of Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch® which has gorgeous log cabins in a woodland setting with pony rides and an animal farm, or the new Disney Nature Resort concept, Les Villages Nature® Paris, where you will stay in an oasis of 5 'villages' taking you back to nature and the environment, with a whole heap of family activities, all just a 15-minute drive from the theme park.
There are plenty of choices when it comes to where to stay for a Disney break; from huge Disney-themed resorts with plenty of facilities and free shuttles to the main attraction to quieter properties away from the crowds. With so much choice, you’re bound to find something to suit your budget and your state of mind. You might also choose to stay in Paris itself, which is just 30km to the west.
