Disney’s New York Hotel at Disneyland Paris recently went through a major refurbishment, transforming it into Disney’s New York Hotel – The Art of Marvel. Next up is the Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Paris. Thomas Smith shared some of the regal details with Disney Parks Blog:

The massive transformation of Disneyland Hotel – the flagship icon located at the entrance to Disneyland Park – has just begun after several months of preparation following the announcement in April. This early phase has readied the site for the works to come, in particular emptying the hotel of its furniture, with many pieces made available to cast members. As part of the resort’s ongoing efforts to support the surrounding community, Disneyland Paris also donated more than 1,500 furniture pieces to three organizations supporting local communities.

With the progress of this exciting project, Disneyland Paris continues its strategy of enhancing the guest experience through innovation and a commitment to excellence. By infusing more Disney franchises and storytelling in this 5-star hotel, guests will be welcomed with a renewed, immersive experience.

When it reopens, the Disneyland Hotel will take on a royal theme and become the true kingdom of many Disney Princesses and Princes. These beautifully decorated rooms and suites will draw inspiration from animated classics such as “Beauty and the Beast,” “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty,” as well as recent hits such as “Tangled” and “Frozen.”

At the same time, all hotel areas will be upgraded and redesigned to offer enhanced accommodations with upgraded technologies, from online check-in to in-room connectivity. There will also be expansions to the boutique and fitness areas, featuring an extended pool, spa and gym. For young guests, the Princess for a Day experience will return with a reimagined comeback providing an even more royal experience. The culinary offering will be improved and even extend into the lobby. An additional lounge will also be created to provide hotel guests with more choice in how they spend their stay, along with tasty food and beverage offerings.

The hotel’s exterior will retain its charming Victorian lines and continue to blend harmoniously into the world of Disneyland Paris’ Main Street, U.S.A. with the facades, roofs and woodwork to be completely refurbished, as well as the hotel’s parking area and a new entry sequence.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
