We have just had a great trip to Castle Club at the Disney Hotel Paris. We have stayed at this hotel about 20 times but this was the first time in Castle Club. The extra special facilities of Castle Club are great, hot drinks all day and afternoon tea. This can be a bit of a scrum however, and losses some of that Disney Magic as some of the guests laden their table with cakes and pastries that they do not eat!
The children loved the hotel as always but I have to say that the room we had for the first night was very scruffy. The sofa had seen better days and the carpet was fading. Some of the rest of the hotel has been refurbished - not our room sadly!. We asked to move rooms and after much kerfuffle and tooing and frowing we were moved to a Tower Suite, for the second night, which is not within Castle Club but has all the facilities still available as if you were on the castle club floors. The Tower Suite is very comfortable, with an amazing bathroom by Disney standards. What is sad is that despite the fact that we have stayed at the hotel so many times because we had booked a standard castle club room - we did not qualify for the VIP bottle of Champagne on arrival - or anything else come to that. If you are really only interested in staying in a suite to have the benefit of VIP fast passes I would suggest that you look at the Newport Bay Resort Suite, which is very spacious, gives you the VIP passes and a bottle of champagne and a small gift for the children on arrival. We took premium half board and had dinner at the Auberge De Cendrillion for Christmas Night dinner - not bad and our girls loved the princesses. Inventions on Boxing Day evening was the usual bun fight - but if you have children - then has to be endured as all the characters come to your table. One of the bits that we enjoyed on our previous visits to the bar at the Disney Hotel were the lovely warm canapes served with your drinks and the real linen napkins. Sadly this seems to have gone by the wayside as part of cost cutting measures. Now it is a few crisps and a serviette! It was overall a great stay for us - the Christmas tree in both of our rooms was a lovely touch for santa to put the presents round! - I would like to be made to feel a little more special however as a Castle Club guest and Disney have to get their act together on recognising the value of repeat customers. Also once you start to cost cut too much in a 5 star hotel, it ceases to be five star - so they should be careful as their costs wont justify the lack of the little things that make it a cut above the others. I have been informed by the Castle Club reception that the Tinkerbell Suite within castle club is the one to book as slightly larger that than the Tower Sutei and within the Castle Club floors.
