My annual pass to Disneyland Paris has now officially expired, sad times! I do, however, have so much Disneyland Paris content coming up. In the next couple of months, I’ll also be visiting Disneyland California and Walt Disney World! My last trip to Disneyland Paris was in May for the 25th Anniversary and it was actually the first time we booked to stay in a Disney resort using our Annual Pass. With our Annual Passes, we were able to ring up and book an amazing deal at the Hotel Cheyenne using the AP discount.
I had actually previously stayed at the Hotel Cheyenne nearly 20 years ago! The resort follows a wild west theme throughout and recently had undergone renovations on the guest rooms. We arrived at the hotel by taxi at around 11am and it was all happening in the lobby as we were greeted by Goofy in the lobby doing press ups! Each morning, there were different characters doing a meet and greet and the lines were nothing like the ones in the park!
The Hotel is made up of many different blocks, we were in the Eagle block in a Toy Story Room. During my May trip to Disneyland, I was actually on crutches as I’d fractured my ankle (TWO DAYS PRIOR!). We did mention this at the front desk when we were picking up our keys and the lady was really accommodating and lovely but we still ended up with a first-floor room. It wasn’t too much bother as I could manage up and down the stairs. We did, however, ended up hiring a wheelchair for the parks which wasn’t so easy to navigate around the block.
As I said before, we were booked into a Toy Story “Woody’s Round-up” themed room which was pretty amazing. I loved that the theme wasn’t too in your face and done very tastefully to suit all guests from families to couples. The cowboy boot lamp was definitely my favourite thing in the room, which was very spacious! I don’t think I got any photos of the bathroom but again, it was quite spacious, clean and even had Disney amenities!
The resort on a whole was pretty huge and we didn’t even get a chance to explore it properly. I guess that was mainly down to my restricted mobility but we did check out the on-site gift shop which carried many of the main items sold in the parks. I also found some pretty unique pins on sale which I didn’t end up buying and regret. If you are a pin trader/collector it may be worth checking out the resort gift shops. The Hotel Cheyenne also had an on-site Starbucks which was great for grabbing a coffee or a quick breakfast on the way into the parks. One morning we actually spotted pony rides right outside Starbucks which was a great activity for the younger children. If I remember correctly, it wasn’t too expensive either!
In addition to the Starbucks, I think there were two restaurants which we didn’t really investigate. I know you can stay at Disneyland on a half board basis with a meal plan so I think they were both very popular with guests on these plans.
One of the perks of staying in a Disney Resort is the location. Hotel Cheyenne is located a lot closer than non-Disney resorts and you can even walk, which takes around 15 minutes. A regular shuttle bus every 10 minutes or so from the front of the hotel if you don’t fancy walking. The service was really regular but very busy at all times.
Although you are paying slightly more to be staying in a Disney hotel, I do think it’s worth it. From the moment we arrived the Disney magic hit us. It didn’t really feel like we were leaving the parks on an evening. I also thought the décor of the whole place was amazing and the new Toy Story rooms really impressed me.
I’ll actually be writing up my review of the Magic Circus Hotel soon which isn’t a Disney hotel but is an official partner. The hotel is a much cheaper option but still has a great theme. Let me know what other Disneyland Paris posts you’d like to see. If there’s anything specific you’d like to know.
