The Villages Nature Resort in Disneyland Paris has now become an official Disney hotel. According to the Disneyland Paris website, Villages Nature is now classified as a Disney hotel as opposed to a Partner hotel. Villages Nature is the newest hotel in Disneyland Paris. It opened on September 1st, 2017, and was developed by the Euro Disney Company and Center Parcs, a holiday village company with resorts around Europe. The hotel has a 4 key rating by Disney, putting it equal to Newport Bay Club and Hotel New York, which later this year will be transformed into a Marvel themed hotel, yet it is significantly cheaper than these two.
The resort focuses heavily on nature and the environment, with the Aqualagon pool area being heated naturally by geothermal energy. The resort also features a pony farm and a forest play area. The only amenity that guests here can avail of is extra magic time before the parks open to the public each morning. Disney characters do not appear for meet ‘n’ greets as they do in the other Disney hotels and there is a cost for the shuttle bus into the parks.
