OK so the packing was to be done this morning, one poor tired Disney fan was unable to face it last night. As Scott pointed out, my ETA for finishing this horrendous task was poorly calculated and it seemed to take forever. However eventually it was complete, bags in storage and we were on the bendy bus for one last visit to the happiest place on …
Another buffet breakfast......agh! We sat anticipating what we would have to extract from our son's ear or nose next, coco pop appears to be a favourite!
A trip back to the Disneyland precinct on a crowded bus. A fiesty response to a woman who wanted me to push through people on the bus holding a wriggling toddler. Our bus is a pink bendy …
Until the early hours of the morning we could hear the sound of cannons. Paris had been a hype of activity with the military and police presence both obvious and intense leading up to the 10 year anniversary of the September 11 events in the USA. So we have to admit our heartrate picked up a little, as did those of our fellow guests, when the large …
Back to buffet breakfasts, not that we are complaining because there was a lot to offer this morning. Even Master X filled himself up on a vast array of delights. A long, pink, bendy bus was our shuttle to the Disneyland Park this morning. It was packed from front to back as excited holidaymakers babbled away. We were armed with everything …
After our afternoon in Barcelona, we were on our way to Paris! We arrived later in the evening and had to take a bus from the airport into the city to get on the metro. As we drove through Paris at night, we came around a corner and all of a sudden there was the Eiffel Tower, sparkling in the night. What a great welcome to the city! After the bus …

Historical Traveler Reviews Dream Castle Hotel at Disneyland Paris Magny-le-Hongre
I stayed for 5 nights at the Mövenpick Dream Castle hotel in june 2005, and while the hotel itself is very nice, it seems to have some serious management problems. We travelled with the Eurostar-train from London, and took the free shuttlebus from the station to the hotel. And when we arrived, there was a long, long line for check-in. And only two receptionists working. It took an incredibly 70 minutes(!) before we reached the reception desk. The longest I have EVER had to wait to check in at any hotel. At that point, several other guests were close to boiling over. The two (german) receptionists were extremely embarrassed about the situation and very apologetic. When the (french) frontdesk manager showed up, he had nothing but arrogant comments for all the guests complaining. It was clear that he couldn´t care less. Later that day, one of the girls working at the reception told me, that this situation occurred every day when the Eurostar-train arrived, and that they were heavily understaffed. They had tried to get the hotel management to do something about it, but nothing happened. It´s a real pitty, because the rooms are very nice and the hotel-theming is great. But I will NOT stay at a hotel again that lets me stand in line for 70 minutes to check-in - and who has a frontdesk manager who arrogantly laughs at me and other guests when complaining about the situation.
We stayed at The Movenpick for 5 nights in June this year with our two sons aged 3 and 18 months.
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Dream Castle hotel.
Would recommend highly
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. I chose it mainly because it was good value on line!! Cheapskate that I am! But I wasn't disappointed and would definitely use it again. My children - aged 10 and 7 -loved the bunk beds, the pool and the dinosaur, cat and juggler who frequented the restaurant and communal areas at times!
We only ate breakfast at the hotel, but it was lovely - a very well filled buffet (which left very well filled guests!!)
The bus service to the park was frequent - we never had to wait more than a few minutes in either direction and there was always space on the bus (admittedly we did stay during the week and at a reletively quiet time of year)
We stayed 1 night at the Dream Castle Hotel, in a family room facing onto the gardens and lake. After reading reviews I was unsure what to expect. But overall we found the hotel very good - and that was after staying 2 nights previously in the Inter-Continental LeGrande in Paris. The room was spotlessly clean and the bunk beds went down well with our 7-year old son. The courtesy buses to Disney park were as frequent as we could wish, and the return coach to Ch de Gaulle airport took only 35 minutes. Breakfast was a bit of a scrum, but c'est la vie. If we ever return to EuroDisney (which I hope not - see separate review!), we would stay at the hotel again, without question.
Our kids loved the stay at this hotel
We have choosen this hotel because of the great Family rooms with bunkbeds. Our kids just loved to sleep in the bunkbeds, especially my daughter, she has had the impression to be a real princess.
We enjoyed the distance to the park. It is reachable wihtin a 5 minutes drive with Shuttle bus (free of charge). After a long day at the Disneypark we loved to be a bit away from the park, but still to stay in a themed hotel.
The Hotel offers the high standard of Mövenpick gastronomy from the Breakfast to the dinner.
The whole stay was an unforgettable time for us and our kids.
My five-year-old loved his high bunk bed, the online photo of which sold me on the room to begin with. We didn't have time to use the spa/health club facilities, as we were only there one night. I had expected that there would be more in the hotel for children to do... for some reason the ad on the Disney site had me thinking there were large play areas for the kids. In truth, there is one tiny play area near the front desk, with one of those "ball pools" in it (about six feet wide) and a coloring desk -- and that's it. Don't get me wrong, my two young boys loved playing in it as did all the other guests' kids, but it wasn't a big indoor playground like I expected. The room was somewhat small, but big enough since the attraction was really Disney and the room was just for collapsing in when totally exhausted. The dinner and breakfast buffets were quite tasty if a bit like EuroDisney in their own right -- crowded, noisy and smoky. The front staff was very helpful and friendly, though obviously overworked and understaffed for the number of guests. The shuttle to Disney -- running every 20 minutes -- was convenient, but I later discovered that other hotels' shuttles seemed to run more often. I learned that as we were waiting in the cold after the park closed, in a very long line of people waiting to get onto the shuttle. Other hotels -- like the Santa Fe -- seemed to come every five minutes or so. Eventually, as many of us as could physically fit into the shuttle jammed into it for a very unpleasant ride back to the hotel -- a bit like a Disney simulation of riding a Tokyo train at rush hour. Knowing what I do now -- the distance from the park, the shuttle frequency, the room size, the small play area -- I would book the actual Disneyland Hotel next time. It is literally a few steps outside the gate of the park, a good five minutes walk closer than my hotel's shuttle bus stop, actually, so the convenience alone would make it worth it in my book. All in all, not a bad stay, but nothing memorable in itself.
New, comfortable but a bit dirty
I decided to stay at this hotel as I have always been very satisfied with Movenpick and loved their Birchler Muesli.
The hotel is brand new, has some interesting architecture features. The rooms are quite spacious, however if you are travelling on business, the desk is rather small.
The spa closes early, so hurry up.
The muesli was not prepared the Movenpick way and unfortunatly my room was not vacumed during my stay (which was 4 nights).
What can I say, absolutely fantastic, every detail is taken care of, from the castle like carpet, to the wall mounted drapes, and the kids bunk beds are just so cool - my 4 year old felt like a real princess sleeping behind a plush curtain. Everything was just so new, and the attention to detail was unbelievable.
