Introduction to the Best Hotel for Disneyland Paris

The best hotel for one family might not be the best for another. Which is why we’re going to help you find a hotel that lines up with your specific wants and needs.

You’ll need somewhere to stay and you have a few options.

The first thing to consider is whether or not you’ll book a Disney-owned hotel or a Disney partner hotel.

There are other hotels in and around the Disneyland Paris area, but you’ll need to drive or take a shuttle to the park everyday.

If you’re traveling from Paris expect to take a 40 minute RER train. The surrounding area of Disneyland Paris is called Marne-la-Vallée. Good to know if you’re researching hotels to book. To help you understand the area even more, just think of this area as a circle with Disneyland in the central hub.

Luckily, most hotels in the surrounding area offer free transport to and from Disneyland.

All Disney-owned hotels come with the benefit of early entry into the Disneyland Park, at least one Disney character on hand in the lobby each morning and the convenience of being within walking distance of everything; however most of the hotels listed below outside of the park will be cheaper, substantially in some cases. Here’s our pick of the best hotels near Disneyland Paris.

If you can afford it, you’ll get the most ‘authentic’ Disneyland Paris experience if you stay at one of the official Disneyland Paris hotels. However, many Disney-owned hotels may not be the best hotel for Disneyland Paris.

There are so many elements in deciding which is the best hotel for Disneyland Paris. Tastes and requirements are entirely different for person to person.

The best hotel for Disneyland Paris is you guessed it, the most expensive Disneyland Hotel.

We picked this hotel because it has repeatedly gotten the best reviews on TripAdvisor and is the closest distance to the actual theme parks.

Experience wise, you can’t beat the main hotel offering from Disneyland in Paris. The main perk is that you’re able to have early access to the park and book Disney-exclusive experiences through the hotel.

This includes things like character meet and greets and more.

Hotel options from Disney partners

When it comes to hotels that aren’t owned by Disney (but are Disney Partners) you have many more options to pick and choose from.

For the best hotel for Disneyland Paris that is not Disney owned but is a partner hotel we recommend the Vienna House Dream Castle.

Dream Castle is best suited for the Disney Nerds who are fanatical about Disney fairytales. This is partly due to the medieval décor and almost castle-like qualities in and around the hotel.

This hotel offers free shuttle bus rides to the Disney parks.

If you want a more nature-vibe, we recommend:

Les Villages Nature Paris, Bailly-Romainvilliers

Villages Nature Paris is an eco-friendly resort with fun cottages and apartments overlooking a lake. There are also beautiful gardens, a farm (including animals), a beach, and plenty of restaurants to pick from.

At Villages Nature Paris you’ll find a relaxed atmosphere with a TON of outdoor experiences.

The property is spread out between a forest and empty landscape. However, it’s approximately 6 miles from Disneyland, which will take you roughly 20 minutes visit the park by bus.

All of the 800+ cottages include a mix of sleek, wooden, modern loft-style buildings. Some of which include roof top terraces!

Final thoughts on the best hotel for your Disneyland Paris adventure

Essentially, if money was no object, go for the Disneyland Hotel.

Again and again, the Disneyland Hotel gets the best reviews. The main selling point is that its literally next to the Disney theme parks and the railway station. Also offering three meals a day and it’s particularly good for little princesses, as you can book in for exclusive Disney things which you can’t do at the other hotels.

Essentially, Disney designed this hotel to be an experience in and of itself. Which shows in the expensive price to spend a night there.

If you’re looking for a comparable hotel and a lower price.

Disney’s Newport Bay Club is a good option for you.

It costs much less and is only partially behind on positive reviews. Which makes it a good option.

For a picking a hotel purely on having a low budget without too much compromise.

We recommend the Disney Davy Crockett Ranch.

The biggest downside is that you’ll have to drive yourself the theme park every day.

If proximity is the most important aspect of booking a hotel for you (while not paying high prices).
