Disneyland Hotel to under go a Disney Princesses and Princes makeover.

Disneyland Paris has announced the acceleration of its hotel refurbishment programme by embarking on a transformation of the Disneyland Hotel, which will strengthen its flagship status at the resort and offer guests an even greater five-star experience.

The hotel is known not only for its privileged position at the entrance of Parc Disneyland, but also for its impeccable service that has propelled it to be a firm guest favorite and the iconic resort hotel of Disneyland Paris.

The elegant Victorian architecture that guests have come to know when approaching Parc Disneyland will remain, while the Disney magic that guests love will be enhanced.

The Disneyland Hotel will be refurbished with a royal theme and become the home of many favorite Disney Princesses and Princes, from classics like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, but also the recent favourites Frozen and Tangled.

The hotels public areas will be reimagined to pay homage to these beloved films and their characters, while all hotel rooms and suites will be entirely rethemed to offer an immersive experience with refined, creative décor and magical touches that will surprise the whole family, as only Disney can do.

“At Disneyland Paris, we create enchanting experiences for all ages,” says Sylvie Massara, Walt Disney Imagineering Paris – Design and Show Quality. “The completely refurbished Disneyland Hotel will do just that, immersing guests in a timeless royal atmosphere. Guests will be welcomed with unique refinement as soon as they enter the lobby and will stay in rooms and suites with elegant décor celebrating Disney Princesses and Princes.”

To meet and exceed the ever-evolving expectations of the resorts guests, the layout of the hotel’s public spaces will be improved. With equipment in the rooms also being enhanced to provide improved, personalised services implementing the latest technologies for even greater guest comfort.

Guests will benefit from a larger swimming pool area, indulge in an expanded spa and dine in updated restaurants and bars – all adding up to a most magical experience the five-star Disneyland Hotel can offer.

“When it reopens, the Disneyland Hotel will offer to our guests an enhanced experience even more worthy of the prestigious French five-star hotel rating,” adds Tomás Feier, General Manager of the Disneyland Hotel. “We are proud to welcome a lot of repeat visitors at our iconic hotel, and we want them to be immersed in a 360-degree experience using the power of beloved Disney fairytales, with an array of brave and kind heroines as a central theme. Our loyal guests expect to be enchanted and surprised by their stay each time they visit us, and we take pride in delivering impeccable service to create memorable moments. A full Disneyland Paris experience can truly be achieved only when staying in one of our themed hotels, and we cannot wait to welcome guests to the Disneyland Hotel after its transformation.”

It is expected that the Disneyland Hotel will be closed to guests for a minimum of two-years while the long overdue refurbishment takes place.

Disney Village to be renamed Downtown Disney.

Disneyland Paris has announced the renaming of the resorts Disney Village shopping, dining and entertainment complex to Downtown Disney.

“The rebranding of the Disney Village to Downtown Disney is an exciting part of The Walt Disney Company’s €2 billion investment project of the Disneyland Paris resort” said Euro Disney SCA Executive Lirpa Loof.
