Disneyland Paris announced that their Disneyland Hotel would reopen on January 25, 2024, after a nearly 4-year refurbishment. In addition to Disney Princess-inspired rooms and new restaurants, the hotel will have a spa, Royal Kids Club, and more offerings. Read the details from Disneyland Paris below.
Every centimeter of the interior of this legendary establishment is undergoing a complete “reimagination”, from the spectacular grand lobby to the luxuriant rooms and suites, to offer its future guests a new luxury concept interwoven with beloved royal Disney Characters both classic and new.
“This marks a new chapter for Disneyland Paris, as we continue to be one of the leaders of the European tourism industry with our unique blend of immersive storytelling and world-class hospitality,” said Natacha Rafalski, Présidente of Disneyland Paris.
“We are thrilled to unveil the newly reimagined Disneyland Hotel, a one-of-a-kind five-star property celebrating Disney’s beloved royalty and storytelling. Our commitment to innovation and unparalleled guest experiences remains unwavering, and we look forward to welcoming guests to one of the most immersive hotels in Europe.”
Disneyland Hotel is the first Disney Hotel to propose a five-star journey celebrating Disney royalty in all its expressions. From Cinderella to Frozen, The Sword in the Stone, and The Princess and the Frog to Moana, guests will be given the lead to become part of the story and create their own magical moments.
Combining their creativity with the expertise of European suppliers and craftspeople, the Walt Disney Imagineering Paris team has developed a singular, immersive experience that pays vibrant homage to both Disney royal stories and celebrated European landmarks such as Le Château de Versailles or Neuschwanstein Castle.
Children will be welcomed like princesses and princes during their stay. There will even be spaces tailored just to them such as the Royal Kids Club, where they will be immersed in augmented reality magic and unforgettable encounters. Or My Royal Dream experience, where young guests will be able to transform into their favorite Disney royalty with the help of regal hairstyles, special outfits, accessories and a little pixie dust. And after a full day creating magical memories at the parks, families will have the opportunity to enjoy together a spa experience at Disneyland Hotel Spa by Clarins(1) or a relaxation session in a dedicated space. Additionally, all the hotel’s restaurants, bars and lounges will offer kid-friendly treats and exquisite themed pastries.
The heartbeat of this enchanting experience, a team of impeccably trained Cast Members have been carefully selected from across the resort and beyond, will provide personalized service ensuring every guest receives royal treatment – from a Royal Greeter who will greet them from the moment they step inside the hotel to a Concierge devoted to anticipating their every need. For those seeking more insights about the hotel, Story Keepers(2) will be on hand to walk guests through all the incredible details and hidden gems of the hotel.
Disneyland Hotel will set new standards in five-star hotel immersion with special attention to children. With this transformation, Disneyland Paris continues to redefine the hospitality industry, solidifying its position as Europe’s number one tourist destination, with seven hotels and more than 5,700 rooms.
Reimagining as Part of a Global Transformation
Disneyland Paris is going through an unprecedented transformation, restoring park icons and classic rides as well as working on exciting experiences like the recently opened Marvel Avengers Campus and the upcoming Frozen-themed Land.
The 7 Disney Hotels – ranging from leisure residences to luxury hotels – offer options for everyone and bring the magic to life beyond the parks in highly themed environments with a world of magical exclusives, delivering an unparalleled experience, each its own universe with unique experiences and exclusive benefits.
Disney Hotels are extensions of the legendary storytelling Disneyland Paris guests can experience in the Disney Parks. As such, some of them have also been enhanced in recent years with décor that takes on more storytelling, upgraded amenities and services, entertainment, and opportunities to interact with beloved Disney, Pixar and Marvel Characters. Opening in 2021, the stunning four-star Disney Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel marked a new level of theming with its immersive Superhero encounters, one of the largest collections of Marvel artwork in the world, a creative space for little ones called Marvel Design Studio and the Hero Training Zone, an outdoor field with dedicated areas for a variety of sports activities.
