2. Where to Stay?

You could be taking a holiday in Paris, or maybe you’re planning to book your accommodation at one of the Disneyland Paris hotels to have the parks on your doorstep! Either way, here are the top recommendations for finding the perfect place to stay:

Staying at the Disneyland Paris Resort

There are 7 Disney hotels on-site at Disneyland Paris, all with different price ranges and facilities.

The Disneyland Park Hotel

The Disneyland Park Hotel

If you’re booking your park tickets through a ticketing website, you can still book a Disneyland hotel too. Look out for room-only deals on sites such as Expedia.

If you want the ultimate Disney experience, the Disneyland Hotel is right at the park gates and offers maximum Disney magic, including character breakfasts and gorgeous 1880s architecture.

There’s also Disney’s Hotel New York which is themed around the Big Apple, and Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne which brings the Wild West to Paris.

A cheaper option is the self-catering lodges at Davy Crockett’s Ranch, where you can stay in private cabins for up to 6 people and cook your own meals.

Other official Disney hotels include the Newport Bay Club, Sequoia Lodge, and the “Cars”-themed Hotel Santa Fe.

Staying in the local area

Close to the Park – Disney Partner Hotels

There are 8 official “Disney Partner” hotels in the immediate area, all located a short distance from Disneyland Paris.

A major bonus of choosing one of these hotels is that they all supply a regular free shuttle service to the parks. If you only have a short time at Disneyland Paris, these are a good choice as you’ll spend less time travelling and more time having fun!

Tip: Save a packet at these hotels by searching for room-only offers, then booking your Disneyland Paris park tickets separately through the cheapest ticket-only supplier.

The Disneyland Paris Partner Hotels are:

  • Vienna House Dream Castle Hotel
  • Vienna House  Magic Circus Hotel
  • Radisson Blu Hotel
  • Algonquin’s Explorers Hotel
  • Kyriad Hotel
  • Hôtel l’Elysée Val d’Europe
  • Adagio Marne-la-Vallée Val d’Europe
  • B&B Hotel

A bit further afield

Some people choose to stay a little further out in areas such as Bussy-saint-Georges or Torcy. These are only 10-15 minutes’ train ride from the parks and offer budget hotels such as the Campanile Torcy, or conveniently-located ones such as the Golden Tulip Marne La Vallee, right opposite the train station.

Staying in Paris City Centre

Disneyland Paris is about 35 minutes by train from central Paris, so if you don’t mind the extra travel and want to experience the city during the evening, this option is for you.

For minimal travel hassle, choose a hotel along the “RER Line A” train route, which is the line that runs directly to Disneyland (See “If you’re travelling from Paris” section on the previous page).

There are literally hundreds of hotels to choose from in Paris, but for convenience you may want to stick close to Paris De Lyon station, which is surrounded by international hotel chains like Novotel, ibis and Mercure.
