Well, the value hotels don't have AC but they do have ceiling fans. Cheyenne's theming is amazing, the most immersive in DLP. It's maybe a 15 minute walk from the parks - slightly longer than Newport Bay but not much.

Yes, the rooms are not the last word in luxury, but they're fine. To be honest, you won't spend that much time in your room anyway.

The buffets get busy, but you don't have to eat there. Breakfast isn't included unless you have a dining plan. If you don't have one, there are other options in the Village - Starbucks, McDonalds, Earl of Sandwich, or my fave New York Style Sandwiches. There is also a Starbucks in Cheyenne. Or you can take cereal bars or porridge pots. (Remember to ask for a kettle at reception, as they are not always guaranteed to be in the rooms.)

Of the three, Sequoia Lodge is my favourite. Nearer than the other two, more grown up feel, cosy bar. Yes, it could do with a refurb by now but it's fine for a short stay. If you wanted you could stay Golden Forest level, which would give you extras such as a dedicated check in area, separate breakfast area, free snacks and drinks in the afternoons, a coffee machine in the room, and one Fastpass per person per day.

However, in recent stays our budget hasn't stretched to the Sequoia and we had a wonderful stay at the Cheyenne last November.

Offsite doesn't have to involve buses. There are loads of offsite options in Val d'Europe which are reachable by a 5 minute journey on the RER. Much more pleasant than the bus. We have stayed at the Elysee but there are loads of others - Ibis, Hipark, Adagio and more.
