Close to Disneyland Paris are a number of Partner Hotels. These are hotels that all have a free shuttle bus to the theme parks, but are not owned by Disney itself. Because of this you often pay less for a room or you have more luxury for the same price. The Campanile is one of those Disneyland Partner Hotels in which I myself have stayed several times. Below you can read what to expect!
Location Campanile Val de France – Disneyland Paris
The Campanile Val de France is located next to Disneyland Paris, across the street from Hotel Santa Fe. If you are sporty you could walk the distance to the Parks. But I personally like to take the free shuttle bus. It runs very regularly and drops you off near the entrance of the parks. Walking takes about 45 minutes if you go by Hotel Santa Fe, with the bus about 10 minutes. Choice quickly made, right?
If you’ve been to Disneyland Paris before, the name Campanile Val de France probably doesn’t ring a bell. That’s because this hotel used to be called Kyriad Disneyland Paris. The same hotel, facilities etc. only now with a different name. (Kyriad belongs to the same group as Campanile)
Arrival by car
The easiest way to get to this hotel is by car. You follow the same route as the Disney Hotels, drive past Hotel Santa Fe and then you will see on your right all the Partner Hotels of which Campanile is one.
In your navigation put the following address:
10 Avenue de la Fosse des Pressoirs, Magny le Hongre, France
This route will take you to the parking lot where you can park for free. There are plenty of parking spaces available. Sometimes you can even park right next to your room.
Arriving by train
This hotel is also easy to reach by train. You take the train to the Disneyland Paris station. Right next to the train station there are all kinds of bus stops. On the sign you can see exactly which bus you need to take for the Partner Hotels and this will take you to the reception of the Campanile Hotel.
If you arrive by plane just take the train from the airport to Disneyland Paris. This will only take about 10 minutes, very convenient. Make sure you exit at the Marne la Vallee – Chessy stop, which is the official name of the Disneyland Paris train station. To see which train to take we use Google Maps navigation.
The hotel itself ..
… is neat but quite basic. Basically what you can expect from a 3 star hotel. The main purpose of the hotel is to provide a place to sleep next to Disneyland Paris. In the lobby there is a Disney store with souvenirs from the theme parks, there is an arcade with video games and two restaurants plus a bar.
Furthermore, there is not much to do, but that is not necessary. Nearby you have Disneyland Paris and a large shopping center including a street with outlet stores of famous (expensive) brands.
This hotel is also a good base for a visit to Paris or Versailles. They can help you at the reception with booking a trip there or with tips on how to get there most easily.
The rooms of Campanile Val de France
The hotel has 300 rooms, most of which are for 4 people. They have a double bed or two single beds. In the family rooms there is an additional bunk bed for up to 70kg.
In the room you have a TV, safe, kettle, air conditioning, bath, shower and hairdryer. All the basics are there.
If I had to mention a disadvantage of this hotel is that the rooms are very small. Especially if you go with children and if they still have some energy left. But for the price it is a great alternative to the Disney Hotels. You just have to make sure you return to your room dead tired.
Another downside, but maybe that’s different these days, is that the rooms are very hot. We always slept with the window open to get some fresh air. Not a big deal but keep in mind that at least here you don’t need thick pajamas.
The Campanile Val de France is a 3-star hotel a few minutes away from Disneyland Paris. This is a Partner Hotel which means that there is a free shuttle bus to and from the Parks. This shuttle bus runs every 20 minutes between approximately 08:00 and 24:00. You can also walk to the Disney theme parks but I personally do not recommend that.
Other than that, this hotel is mainly a place to sleep. The rooms are not very big and quite basic. But they do offer everything you need for your (short) stay.
A good alternative to this hotel is the B&B Hotel. This is a 2-star hotel with more spacious, but slightly less beautiful, rooms.
