Disney Princesses at dinner, buffets overspilling with oysters and lobster towers, immersive performances in the lobby and a full menu of rejuvenating spa treatments - the ultimate five-star Disneyland Hotel has arrived, and it’s just across the English Channel.

Why Go

The iconic hotel, situated in the heart of the Disneyland Paris resort, has created a royal residence and everyone’s invited. Tiny guests, who want to feel like mini Princesses, can descend the lobby stairs in puffy gowns with Disney’s most recognisable ones. Couples looking for fine dining, complete with exclusively-made Champagne and beautifully crafted desserts, can marvel at the menu at La Table de Lumière. And post-ride peace-seekers, who long to relax after a day of darting around the parks, can unwind at the Crystal Pool & Health Club.

There’s something undeniably magical about Disneyland Paris, but there’s no ignoring the regally-infused luxury at the newly re-opened hotel. And you don’t need to be seven years old or a die-hard Disney fan to enjoy it. Whether you’re looking for a family stay that the little ones will remember forever or you’re an adult who wants a splash of nostalgic magic with a five-star twist, there are no age restrictions when it comes to feeling like royalty here.

The Vibe

After almost three years of renovations, the Disneyland Hotel has opened its doors once again - and what luxurious doors they are. The hotel, which has been accommodating guests since 1992, has had a complete royal ‘reimagining'. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you’ll be met with Disney decadence - there’s a six metre chandelier dripping with 12,000 glass stars and beads, housing its own sparkling impression of the Disney Castle. Further down, you'll see a bifurcated staircase lined with gold bannisters that regularly sees the footfall of Aurora, Belle and Cinderella themselves (much to the smaller guests’ glee). And if you're really into the musical magic of Disney, you may find that the check-in staff serenades you with a rendition of A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes. 

As for the location, you're the closest you could possibly be to the park action. In fact, the Disneyland Hotel guests are already at the turnstiles once they leave the lobby, and from inside the hotel direct views of the Disney Castle can be found in various spots, including the restaurants and a handful of suites.

For a unique experience exclusive to hotel guests, little ones who want to live out the full Prince or Princess fairytale can book an appointment at the in-house costume shop, My Royal Dream. Older guests might prefer to book a massage at the Clarins Spa, or sink into the jacuzzi at the Crystal Pool & Health Club.

The Rooms

Throughout the Disneyland Hotel, the attention to detail is remarkable - but it’s in one of the 487 bedrooms that you’ll really notice it. In the Deluxe Rooms, you’ll find everything you'd usually expect from a five-star hotel: deliciously fluffy bathrobes and towels, an enormous (and blissfully comfy) double bed, and a well stocked coffee treasure chest. Naturally. What you’ll also find in these rooms are some undeniably impressive Disney touches. There’s a glittering fibre optic canopy which changes colour at the touch of the bedside button, the carpet is laced with subtle motif nods to Snow White, Aladdin and Peter Pan, and the mirror actually doubles up as a TV. Really. Oh, and there’s a pillow menu.

If you’re feeling flush the opulent (and pricer) Signature Suites are tucked away on the private third and fourth floors, and they are the epitome of extravagance. As well as access to a private park lift and private lounges, you’ll find Princess Aurora’s colour-changing dress in the Sleeping Beauty suite, and its Frozen neighbour boasts a suit of armour mannequin. Fancy.

The Food and Drink

Whether you want casual or fine dining, there’s something spellbinding on every menu. Guests can enjoy a buffet breakfast at the Royal Banquet restaurant, complete with the usual combination of yoghurts, fruit and flakey croissants. However, it’s the elevated additions that will grab your attention; think sweet waffles aptly embossed with crowns, a selection of quality PDO and AOP cheeses, dry-aged Charolais beef roses and bread embellished with a chocolate fleur de lys.

By dinnertime, the Royal Banquet restaurant has become a playground for Disney characters as well as diners. Don’t be surprised if Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto - all dressed in their regal attire - come flouncing in while you’re tucking into your Princess Tiana-shaped petit four. During the evening sitting, the mouth-watering cheese table (complete with cider and blackberry chocolate confits) is a good place to start, followed by a tasting plate of sweet stuffed mini peppers, chicken paté en croute and juicy sun-dried tomatoes. For the main event, head to the unmissable lobster tower (enveloped by freshly shucked oysters, king prawns and crab claws, no less), or take your pick from the selection of roasted meats for your mains.

If you really want to take things up a notch, book a reservation at La Table de Lumière. With sparkling chandeliers, gold grid mirrors and a bell jar rose on every table, it’s impossible not to feel like Belle herself. This fine dining offering - with a three-course royal menu of langoustines, succulent roast Montbéliard beef and fluffy vanilla bavarois - is an experience in itself, and is not to be missed. 

Head to the Fleur de Lys bar just a few steps away for a signature cocktail or a glass of the Disneyland Hotel’s exclusive Maison Pierre Mignon champagne. Royally good (hiccup).
