The Dream Castle Hotel is a Partner Hotel of Disneyland Paris. This means two things: it is located near the amusement park, and there is a free shuttle bus to and from your hotel that drives throughout the day. How close it is to Disneyland Paris, you can see very well in the picture above. You can see the balloon of Disney Village behind the hotel.
Dream Castle Hotel Location
The Dream Castle hotel is located across the road from the Hotel Santa Fe, as you can see in the map below. (To the right by the red pin)
On the far left with all the icons you can see the theme parks and Disney Village. This seems quite far away, but walking takes about 45 minutes. You walk to the small traffic circle above the red pin, then left to the next traffic circle, and then through the Esso gas station and Hotel Santa Fe towards the water and the walkway to the theme parks.
Although it is walkable, I personally like to take the shuttle bus. It runs regularly and stops right in front of your hotel and next to the theme parks. If you have to walk all day, you should be brought to the park, don’t you think?
Arriving by car
If you go by car to this hotel then put the following address in your navigation: 40 Avenue de la Fosse des Pressoirs, Marne-la-Vallée. You then follow the route to the Disney Hotels (Avenue Robert Schuman on the map – right of Newport Bay Club) and then through the traffic circles to the hotel.
This is an excellent route where everything is well-marked. Sometimes your navigation will send you on a shortcut, especially with traffic jams. This is also a good route, less crowded; only you have some more traffic lights. The best part of the shortcut is arriving on the backside of Disneyland Park, where you will get very close to Space Mountain.
If you come by train, then you get off at the Disneyland Paris station. From here you take the shuttle bus to the Dream Castle Hotel or you can walk the 45 minutes, if you want. At the bus station there is a sign that tells you the stop you need to get to for the Partner Hotels – which includes this hotel. This usually stops at the very back.
Many people also use the Partner Hotels to combine a visit to Disneyland Paris with a day in Paris. It’s very easy to do that. I would leave the car anyway; driving is no fun in the city of Paris. The best way to get there is by train from the Disneyland Paris train station. Tickets can be bought easily at the machines here. Everything is well indicated and within half an hour you are in Paris.
If you prefer to take a bus, ask your hotel about the possibilities for an organized day trip.
The Dream Castle Hotel
The Vienna House Dream Castle Hotel is a 4-star hotel. On the outside it looks neat and tidy, and with a little imagination it really looks like a castle. In front of the hotel, there is a large parking lot where you can park for free.
Everything in the hotel is well taken care of. The 2 restaurants are clean and spacious. Dinner is also very affordable: a buffet where you can eat unlimited for only €29.50 for adults and €11.50 for children. That is certainly compared to the restaurants in Disneyland Paris a good deal.
Do you want some fun in the evening then you can swim in the pool – with slide! – or have a drink in the bar.
The Dream Castle rooms
In the hotel there are 4 types of rooms:
- Standard room with King size bed
- Standard room with 2 Queen size beds
- Family room with a double bed and bunk beds
- Suites for up to 7 people
Each room has free wifi, a TV, bathroom with bath/shower/toilet/sink, a coffee maker and kettle. There is also a safe and air conditioning.
Because it is a 4-star hotel, the rooms are spacious. The beds are also very comfortable. In terms of theme, don’t expect too much. It is, of course, not a Disney Hotel.
Price per night
In the low season, a family room costs €112 per night, including breakfast. This is not per person but per room. Admission tickets for Disneyland Paris are unfortunately not included in this.
The suites are also less expensive than you think: €149 per night in low season for a 4-person suite.
The price makes these hotels a good alternative to Disney Hotels. Granted, if you add the cost of an entrance ticket to the price per night then there are cheaper Disney Hotels, but then you are certainly not staying 4-star. The value for money is a lot better at the Partner Hotels.
