FIRST LOOK: Sneak Peek at New Hallway Design for Disney Sequoia Lodge at Disneyland Paris

DLP Report has shared a sneak peek at the new hallway design for Disney Sequoia Lodge at Disneyland Paris.

New Hallways at Sequoia Lodge

The carpets, walls, lighting, and doors are all being updated, and it is highly likely the Sequoia Lodge will be the next Paris property to be receive a major refurbishment after the Disneyland Hotel project is complete. A video of these new design elements is available in this tweet:

Each room number sign now also includes a bear with their cub, reminiscent of the California flag. They also bear a resemblance to the logo for Disney’s Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World. Sequoia Lodge is meant to pay homage to the Sierra Nevada region of that state (where Yosemite National Park is located), the only place where giant sequoias are found, while their close relative (the California redwood) only exists in Northern California and far southern edges of Oregon. This family of trees includes the tallest and heaviest on Earth.

We had a chance to visit the lodge a couple of years back — check out our room tour below:

Currently, the rooms have an old American West feel with elements of Arts & Crafts design, featuring artwork from animated classics such as “Bambi.”

The lodge opened in 1992, and was designed by French architect Antoine Grumbach, who took inspiration from various western United States national park lodges around the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th — such as the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

  1. Nooo, the old look was so good and so classically Californian! From the time we walked into the hallway – let alone the room – we kept saying “Yep, this looks like home!”

    By the way, it’s not “old west and Victorian” style. It’s Craftsman/Arts and Crafts style, which was prominent in California from the 1910s-1930s and emphasized nature and natural beauty in contrast to the mass-produced opulence of the Victorian style and its descendants. The style incorporated art nouveau motifs in a lot of the wallpaper and used a lot of exposed, natural wood and a “rustic” colour palette. Sequoia Lodge did it really well IMO, especially since its scale is a lot less grand/ginormous than Grand Californian.

    The new version looks like it belongs in some kind of start-up or doctor’s office and, despite using wood, is far too bleached-out and is so obviously pieced with the contradicting grains that it goes against everything the original style is for. I really wish they would stop updating just for sake of updating and actually think about what style and atmosphere and “story” they’re trying to convey. Otherwise they all just look like a Holiday Inn…but aren’t priced like one.

  2. We stay here once a year and whilst the building and main areas of the hotel are fantastic, the rooms and corridors badly need renovation so this is very welcomed!
