Planning on taking a trip to one of the most magical place in Europe but not sure where to stay? Let us help you with your Disneyland Paris Hotel decision. With creatively themed lodging options including a dazzling Manhattan-style hotel, a New England seaside resort of the 1900s and a colorful town from America’s Old West, the hotels of Disneyland Paris offer something for every taste and budget – from “value” to “deluxe”.
Each of the hotels at Disneyland Paris is themed to tell a story – of adventure, romance or elegance in another time and place. Each has its own distinctive architecture and design. And each offers comfort and convenience for guests of the Resort. There are six Disneyland Paris hotels plus the large Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch wilderness retreat. The Victorian elegance of the luxury-class Disneyland Hotel, the relaxed woodland setting of the moderate Disney’s Sequoia Lodge and the American Southwest atmosphere of the value Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe, are just a few of the options.

Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe (Value hotel)
Architect Antoine Predock’s roots in his native New Mexico are clearly on display in his design for this desert-themed 1,000-room hotel which salutes the dawn of the “family drive” era in the mid-20th Century, when Americans were taking their automobiles on the road to discover their country.
