Up at 6:45 to leave the apartment by 7:45, but its actually 8:10 by the time we're out the door. Its super nice, and cold in the morning in Paris, I love it and Heather is shivering. We need a taxi to the Gare Lyon train station, so we started walking South to the Louvre hoping to catch one on the way, but it takes all but the last block before we …
... ice cream, I allowed myself to get a medium size cup for the awesome price of 4,50 €. Yes, 4.5 EUROS. It is actually more than a three course meal served at the cite universitaire’s restaurant. I’m glad there isn’t a shop close to my place because I would seriously end up being in a financial crisis because of it. Anyways, I really enjoyed this ice cream :)
The whole week was just full of ...

After two hours of wandering through these amazing rooms and reliving our Egypt holiday we went to see Mona Lisa. What a circus!! So many people congregated around with cameras, videos and ipads raised above their heads to get 'the' photo and the Asians who had to have their photo taken with the painting. There were four or five security people just in ...

We stayed for four nights. Nice rooms, spacious. We had three rooms between us. Plenty of room for the child beds in the family rooms and the two person room had a sofa and coffee table. Plenty of hanging space in the wardrobes and a key safe for valuables.
Corridors could do with a redecorate, looking a bit tired (feb 13). Nice indoor pool which was good.
Breakfast was hot or cold and there was plenty of room. If you timed it right there was no queue (before 08.00). We 10 sat on one round table. Service was cafeteria style. No problems.
Bar was expensive, use the station supermarket and buy your beverages there for use in your room.

Historical Traveler Reviews Disney's Hotel New York Marne-la-Vallée
Will Go Back
Just back from my first Disneyland trip with partner and 5 and 3 year old children. Most happy with our choice of hotel. We were warned that it is quite a walk from the Park, but in fact it is no distance at all. Our room was spacious and comfortable (we upgraded to a lakeside room) and the hotel added to our great holiday. Staff were all helpful and polite, breakfast was good (and you can save money by making up cheese and ham rolls to eat at lunch time, as eating out even from kiosks is pricey) and the best part for us was that the children got to meet Disney characters every morning at the hotel.
Only downside to hotel was that it has a large conference facility, so we often had difficulty getting out of the lifts because of swarms of business people in the lobby who piled in before we could get out.
Word of warning - keep an eye on your possessions in the Parks. Our pushchair was stolen on our first day, and every time I went to Guest Services to see if it had turned up, someone else was reporting a video camera stolen. You are so busy watching the children enjoy themselves that you become a very easy target.
A thoroughly fantastic holiday, despite much rain, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back to the New York or to recommend it.
Just returned from the Hotel New York, we are a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 children aged 5 and 2.5.
This was our first visit to DLP, although we have been to DW in Florida 3 times.
We arrived by Eurostar and took the hotel shuttle bus to the hotel. We only just squeezed onto the bus but was first in the queue for check-in, the number of people manning reception was totally inadequate for the amount of people attempting to check-in. I would suggest taking the hotel shuttle bus from the station rather than walking, as all bags were inspected by security at the entrance to Disney village - no joke with a large suitcase!
The hotel is ideally placed for the 2 parks and Disney village, within 10 minutes of leaving the hotel (via Disney village) we were at the gates of either park. The hotel itself is luxurious and being one of the smallest, never seemed crowded. The room was large enough for a family of four and the bathroom was very spacious. The room was very clean (even under the beds!). The New York theme of the hotel and the rooms especially the lifts was great. Several days before our arrival, I faxed a room request through for the Midtown Towers on a high floor (I had only booked a standard room), this was exactly what was allocated. This room had a view from the full length windows of the Castle and Space Mountain; we could even watch Wishes fireworks from our room at night.
We never ate meals other than breakfast in the hotel, but this was high quality and when taken in the Manhattan restaurant was very civilised - no queuing or pushing. The buffet breakfast contained a large selection including one hot dish called New York Pudding which I loved.
The hotel had one shop which mostly sold Disney mechanises plus a few chilled drinks (including beer) and crisps and chocolate. Our one big gripe with the hotel was the inability to buy wine other than with a meal of at the restaurant or bar/room service at vastly inflated prices e.g. 26 Euros for a wine that would cost no more than £5 at home.
The hotel swimming pool was enormous, with a large pool inside and one outside connected together though a doorway. There was also a Jacuzzi that was very large and a small shallow pool ideal for toddlers to paddle in. The main pools was one depth approx. 5ft 5in, too deep for anyone other than confidant swimmers to use, although the hotel does provide vast amounts of various floats, arm bands and swim jackets for children. The days we used the pools we had the whole thing practically to ourselves.
We thought that the hotel was ideal for families with young children. The characters made regular appearances without any of the queuing and pushing found in the parks, almost every time we went into the lobby, a character would appear. Overall, a very good stay at the Hotel New York.
Staying at the Hotel New York was the culmination of a very happy trip to Paris and Disneyland Paris. We got a very good deal to stay here, and it was more than worth the money we paid. The lobby/reception area is very snazzy and reminiscent of the 1930s Big Apple. The rooms are large and clean. And the facilities (tennis, swimming, gym) are top notch. I would love to stay here in winter when the area in front of the hotel is transformed into an outdoor ice pad. The staff are accomodating and courteous. So I would recommend it to anyone who's looking to have some fun.
Good location, otherwise just okay
We spent a week-end (two nights) at the Disney Hotel New York, taking advantage of a special deal with 25% off which made it a bit more affordable than normally.
The check-in was okay, but not at all comparable to the Disney Hotels we stayed at in the US where you immediately feel the Disney spirit. The girl at the reception gave us all the maps, tickets and the key to our room, telling us that it had a great view. On the way to the room, there were trays with dirty dishes standing in front of two rooms, and they were there until the next day. Our room was pretty big with a king sized bed, a couch which could be turned into a bed as well, a bathroom, a separate toilet and a separate closet - but definitely no view. Especially the bathroom and the toilet were pretty run down, the latter made in the beginning very strange noises, and after flushing it once did not work anymore at all. Back at the reception, we were told that normally they send maintenance to the rooms before giving them away, well, bad luck then. We got a new room which had the regular size of the rooms which is much smaller, but okay. It also had a king size bed and a sofa-bed. Again we had problems with the bathroom facilities, as the drain of one washbasin was blocked, but as there are two washbasins, it worked for us.
Breakfast is served at the Manhattan Restaurant which is Diner-style, quite nice, breakfast is okay.
The main asset of the New York hotel is its proximity to the parks, it is really just a short walk, don't even bother about taking the shuttle bus. Otherwise, there is nothing special about the hotel, somehow it does not have any personality, if you know what I mean. Next time, I think I would rather stay at the Newport Bay Club which, at least from the outside, looks much more attractive.
Wow, what a welcome
Just had the most magnificient stay and trip to disneyland-you won't be disappointed with the hotel-it is big, but friendly, convenient location as my son has asthma -so only a short walk to the parc-the staff are helpful and the pool is out of this world.
Well this hotel is superb! We stayed here in November 2002 and it was the best hotel we have stayed in ever. The hotel room was immaculate and the service impeccable! The two restaurants were great with very tempting menu's. The hotel bar was lovely and the coctails went down too well. They even did childrens non-alcoholic coctails which was great.
I would definately return to this hotel!
BEST XMAS EVER
We went here for xmas. What a stay. It was the best xmas ever. The rooms were excellent, hotel standards were fabulous. And the Christmas Dinner Party on Xmas day was exxcellent. Food and drink flowing all day, disney characters present all the time. What a treat for the children. This is something I will do again, and this hotel was FAB!!!!!
Pleasant Setting but Disappointing Management
I stayed at Hotel New York for a major conference in September 2004. The hotel enjoys a convenient location and a pleasant setting. I particularly enjoyed the walk round the man-made lake fronting the hotel. It takes only 5 minutes to walk to the metro station or 7 to the Theme Park. There is also free shuttle service between the hotel and major spots.
But the hotel itself is old and there is much to be desired in terms of its management. The basins do not drain well and the bathroom and room facilities are primitive; no shower cap, iron, fridge, etc. Worse still, the service is unreliable. Although most hotel staff claim to speak English, they failed my wake-up call and I missed my early morning departure train!
One may find Hotel New York more than acceptable if not for the expectations one may have established for a Disney hotel and its price.
This would have to be one of the best hotels ive ever stayed in. The hotel staff were more than polite and told us everything about the hotel and about both of the disney parks. we were upgraded to a room on the front that had a perfect view of lake disney, it was also very big and spacious.Room service was very good although they forgot to give us a knife one morning for the bread. The New York bar was very nice with friendly staff although quite expensive.overall a very nice hotel
Very nice hotel
I think it?s a very nice hotel, with a perfect location just next to Lake Disney, Disney Village and only a 5 min. walk to the park entrance. The rooms are slightly bigger than usual at european hotels - ours had 2 queens. If you get a lakeside room you will have a wonderful view across Lake Disney towards Hotel Newport Bay Club. Nice breakfast buffet and some very good restaurants - especially the Manhattan. I have now stayed at this hotel on several occasions, and I am always happy to return.
