Photo TR : 8/17 - 8/19/2008 : Disneyland Paris

Recommended Posts

Since the opening of DLP back in 1992, I've been almost every year at least once at DLP.

Over the years we have stayed in all 6 Disney hotels they have in Paris. The last 5 times we slept in the Disneyland Hotel.

Last year we didn't go to Disney so we had some extra bucks to spend this year and decided to book a room in the Castle Club, the exclusive part of the Disneyland Hotel. The Castle Club rooms are on the 3rd and 4th floor right above the park entrance.

 

Here some brief info from wikipedia.

The Disneyland Hotel is a hotel at Disneyland Resort Paris, by which it is marketed as its most prestigious and priced accordingly. With its clapboard and trim styled in a palette of creams and pinks, octagonal and Mansard roofs with dormers, a Mickey Mouse clock tower, wraparound porches and goldleaf finishes, it is designed to loosely recreate opulent Victorian hotels which emerged in the United States around the end of the 19th century, mainly its Queen Anne and Second Empire varieties.

 

The hotel is located over the entrance of the Disneyland Park and thus provides many rooms and public areas with a view of the park. Its ground floor contains the park's 42 ticket booths and turnstiles as well as private lifts which provide entry to guests of the Castle Club; the wing of the hotel that houses its most expensive rooms and suites.

 

 

 

I have some 300 pics to post so I will post them in several parts. (Next parts will be uploaded during the weekend as I'm going to Toverland tomorrow).

 

Apart from the pics I shot in the hotel, I paid much attention to the theming in the parks this year, so I have a lot of theming pictures this time.

 

Well on to the pics.

 

Hope you enjoy reading and I'm curious to see your reactions.

Something new this year was the 'Princess for a day' shop. For 60 upto 160 euro, your kids ('girls' sounded a bit weird for some reason) was transformed into a princess.

It's a small world also doesn't have a fastpass lane but at least it has a super capacity.

Unfortunately Autopia doesn't have a fastpass lane and as we didn't want to queue for an hour, this is the most my daughters got from Autopia.

When you stay in the Castle Club, you get a vip fastpass which we could use as much as we wanted to.

Centre part of the hotel with on our floor the Castle Lounge and on ground floor on the pic (actually being the 2nd floor) the Inventions and Californian Grill restaurants, serving breakfast to the other Disneyland Hotel guests.

After mentioning my name, the valetparking guy took our suitcases out of the car and guided us to the seperate CastleClub reception. As it was still breakfast time, they asked us whether we wanted to eat and drink something before going into the parks, something we gladly accepted and 10 minutes after our arrival, we were already sitting in the Castle Lounge having a great breakfast with the above view.

After a 3.5 hour drive, we arrived at the Disneyland Hotel parking at about 9 am.

Great TR so far, can't wait to see the rest!

 

So Castle Club is worth the money? I'm considering to book a room there next time so I'd like to know if it's well spent money!

 

Btw, I just love your oldest daughter in the Autopia car, she's all "Yeah, I'm a bad a$$ driver!"

ToT is better then I expected. I don't understand they didn't put in the Orlando 5th (or is it 6th ? I don't remember) dimension part.

Crush Coaster is ok, very well themed but not worth the 60 minutes we had to wait before riding it.

 

^

 

It's worth it ! You have to see it this way : a standard room in the Disneyland Hotel is already quite expensive. Compared to those rates, the CC rooms are in fact only a 'bit' more expensive.

The problem is, once you have stayed in a CC room, you'll probably don't want to book in any other hotel than the CC.

 

Thanks for the compliments.

Tomorrow I'll be uploading the next part.

I love Disneyland Paris. I was there in 98' and again in 07' and can truly see a huge improvment.

 

What does that hotel offer? We are planning a trip there sometime next year and I really want to know what you get for your money. I already know that you can stay later in the park. (I remember that from Hotel Santa Fe). But do you get hotel meals free, what are in the rooms...etc..

 

I can't wait for the next part.

I've always wanted to stay in the concierge level of the Disneyland Paris hotel just for the unlimited Fast Pass. I really hope they do that at WDW some day!

 

As for the 'once you go up, you'll never go back' thing. Well, it's hard but possible. We stayed in an amazing Garden Villa Suite at the Boardwalk for our Wedding and haven't stayed in one since. It's been hard going down to the Moderates, but it's doable. Afterall, you're still on vacation at Disney!

Thanks for showing so much of the inside of the DisneyParis Hotel. I enjoy seeing what Disney does even to it's accomodations, some of which a few of us would/will never get to see, lol.

 

Love a lot of the random shots too.

 

Enjoyed 'seeing' your stay there.

This year hotel guests (of all Disney hotels that is) could enter the park as from 8 am while the park officially only opened at 10 am.

Only most attractions in Fantasyland are open and seeing the amount of people going into the park before 10 am, Fantasyland must have been really packed.

As we stayed till 11 pm in the park each day, we didn't bother getting up early so we only entered the park after 10 am.

The rooms in all hotels are standard rooms which you can find in most hotels. Santa Fe & Cheyenne have the smallest rooms without airco nor swimming pool. Sequoia Lodge and New Port Bay are moderate hotels but still at 15 minutes walking to the entrance of the parks. If you're lazy free shuttle busses are available. Hotel New York is right next to Disney Village and at 10 minutes walking from the entrances. It's a nice hotel but of all Disney hotels this is my least favorite. The theme isn't just my cup of tea I guess.

The Disneyland Hotel is the hotel right above the entrance we stayed in. Especially with smaller children this is the hotel you have to book. When going from the one park to the other, you can always make a quick stop at the room.

 

edit : breakfast is always included if you don't book 'room only'.

So now you told everybody about that shortcut.

 

I use it also all the times and I always seem to be the only one.

 

Great pictures thanks for sharing.

Let's use our fast passes again for BTM. I have no picture of that but in the morning the waiting line to get a fast pass was at least 15 minutes.

Great TR. I liked the pics from the park, but my favorites were the ones of the hotel. Castle Club seems like a beautiful place to stay. It looks like they really do alot for their guests.

I gotta say though, this is my favorite pic...

Looks like the scene straight out of TOT

Hi,

 

you didn't really put your question in the correct thread but since you bumped my DLP TR by putting your question in this thread, I'll try to answer

 

Worldwide attendance figures 2007 : take a look at this thread.

 

For information about the parks, I recommend to take a look at the park index on the TPR front page.

 

For detailed information about the coasters, you should check www.rcdb.com.
