We had first booked the dreamland castle hotel at Disney for our 1st trip to Paris, but had cancelled due to the reviews on TripAdvisor, and we were really glad we did.
We arrived after our flight was delayed buy nearly 2 hours (11.30 French time) and we were checked in and in our room within about 10 minutes max. The receptionist was friendly enough and gave us clear instructions where to find our room. Our room was spacious ( glad it was as we had our daughter with us who didn't travel light ) and had enough room for a pram and all of our luggage. Our travel cot was there as requested with clean sheet and a pillow. There was also a good size double bed with an additional single bed in the room as well. The room itself was cleaned every day and we were supplied with clean towels as well.
Breakfast was included in the price and offered a range of cereals, pastries, breads, as well hot and cold drinks. This was great for our young daughter in the morning times as she got a good breakfast to start the day.
Location was perfect for those going to Disneyland. we had the bus stop outside the hotel ( the hotel provided a free bus pass at the time of checking in) and the train station is across the road (1 stop away - we got the train and it was approx 3-4 euro and less crowded than the bus)
The area the hotel was in had a great shopping mall/ outlet store, a few bars and cafes. The shopping mall was great as it provided us with a massive supermarket (great for juice and supplies before going to Disney) and my wife enjoyed the outlet as it had everything from shoes, handbags and designer cloths.
Bars and restaurants gave us some good options for food at night. We enjoyed the pizzeria and the grill beside it. Prices were not to bad either with good service, made for enjoyable dinning. My wife and I, both agreed we would happily eat there again. Staff were very nice and accommodated our daughter. It was early Oct and still was able to sit outside and enjoy our food.
After that we usually went back to the hotel bar for a glass of beer before heading to bed for the night.
Rooms were nice and warm, and no noise as well. From our window we could see the Disney Park, so if you are leaving before the fireworks you could always catch them from your bedroom window.
Decor of the rooms are simple, and if i was being REALLY fussy, they could do with being decorated. There was a television with only French channels, but we were so busy this wasn't an issue.
Checking out was painless as well. The Hotel looked after our luggage for us until we were due to be collected.
Overall I would visit this hotel again. It provided a great location for Disney, and also Paris itself was approx 25 minutes away on the train. We had a safe comfortable trip and enjoyed this so much were were looking at going back to Paris as soon as we got home from the airport.
