Staying at a Disney Hotel or not is an important question, this post shares why we stayed at Disney’s Sequoia Lodge Hotel.
Is it worth staying in Disney Paris Hotels?
This post will answer this question thoroughly, but it is worth it.
If you are a Disney fan or your travel buddies or kids are Disney fans, you should stay at one of the Disney hotels. Staying at the Disney hotel levels up your Disney experience and creates an unforgettable experience.
Sequoia Lodge Hotel Disney Paris updates
The hotel was renovated fully in early 2022, so there is no need to worry that you pay for old hotel furniture.
Why you should stay at a Disney Hotel
Close to the park, you can go back to the hotel anytime.
Disney hotels are mostly inside Disney village. Disneyland Hotel (currently under renovation; booking is not possible) is inside Disney park. Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch is 10 minutes away by car from Disney Paris.
While at the park, if your kids don’t feel well or tired, you can go back to the hotel by taking the free shuttle bus anytime. This is a big plus for parents since you never predict what will happen next, especially when traveling with young kids.
Every hotel has a Disney Theme and special events for kids.
Each Disney hotel has a theme. Besides, the hotel atmosphere is really great; you can show your love and passion for Disney at your will.
In addition, the hotel has special events for kids; you can spend time together with your kids after the park hour.
Disney Parks and Disney Village Maps
Outside the park, there’s a Disney Village; five out of seven Disney Hotels are in Disney Village.

Special Time slot for taking pictures with the Disney characters
It takes at least one hour of waiting to take pictures with the Disney characters inside the park. Luckily the hotel has a particular time slot for hotel guests. Trust me, the waiting line is much shorter.
Enjoy magic hour
Magic hour is the special admission time for Disney hotel guests. Depending on the season, you can enter the park 60 or 90 minutes before the official park hour.
This is the best opportunity to take popular attractions and pictures with your favorite Disney characters.
Disney Hotel is not for you, if
You are not a big fan of Disney.
Probably you don’t want to spend that much time in Disney vibe.
Don’t want to spend that much money.
Apart from the hotel costs, the only con for staying at the Disney hotels is that you also need to pay for your dinner, admission tickets, etc. We spent all our money inside Disney park and Disney village.
However, if you are not on a budget, you should spend the most out of your trip because memory will last, and you cannot be sure when you will return to Disney again.
Sequoia Lodge Disney Paris Hotel Reviews: Room, Facilities & Food
People working there were amiable, and I could feel their passion for Disney. This is what I like about Disney: they create a place where everyone can show their love for Disney.
The lobby uses a lot of wood and brown color to decorate the whole place. It matches their theme: Bambi, which makes you feel like you are in the forest.
There’s a fireplace in the bar section, which makes the place even homier. I like their idea since I watched many Disney movies and cartoons with my family as a kid, and it just made me feel at home.
As mentioned, the hotel was renovated in 2022 and is new and not old-fashioned. To me, it’s worth the money.
You can find all the little details inside the room design and decoration, you can see Bambi elements in their design, and it’s not too childish.
The only drawback of their hotel rooms was that there were few places to charge your phones: only two power sockets for hotel guests.
The bathtub was small, not a size for Dutch people, lol. However, it was clean and organized. You can find everything you need, like Shampoo, Show Gel, Hairdryer, etc.
The hotel has two pools: one is inside, and the other is outside. However, we didn’t try since we wanted to spend more time inside the park, but it looks excellent from the pictures. It is definitely a good place for kids!
The breakfast was average. I was expecting Disney elements/decoration for breakfast, but unfortunately, there was none! The coffee machines were limited and old-fashioned.
Since we were there for company family events, the restaurant was busy between 08.30 to 09.00, and it took some time to get a cup of coffee.
Disney’s Sequoia Lodge Paris is not for you if
Disney’s Sequoia Lodge Hotel is a good option when visiting Disney Paris. However, there might be better options if you want to stay closer to the park; for example, Disney’s Hotel New York. Also, if you dislike Bambi, it is probably not for you.
