DLP and hotels

Hi,

My daughter has requested Disney for her 21st in September. We're looking at 24th to 27 /28th. Tentative plan is to fly into CDG early 24th and fly out late 27th. We are looking at the Disney hotels and narrowed it down to Newport Bay or Cheyenne. There seems to be pros and cons to each. Does sound have any advice?
Or would we be better off site?

Thanks for your help. We've done Orlando but haven't a clue about Paris.

On-site is always better.
For hotels, it comes down to theming as many are now similarly priced give or take a hundred quid (apart from Marvel and DLH which are priced at the luxury end).
Cheyenne is Wild West and Toy Story themed. That may or may not suit a young adult.
Newport Bay has the classical New England theme which may appeal more to adults who want something more neutral. I like it there. Plus it has a pool which is good for warmer months.
I think Cheyenne has been refurbished more recently so will feel ‘fresher’ than Newport Bay.

We've stayed at Cheyenne quite a few times and Newport Bay once.
Cheyenne is a value hotel, immersively themed with bbq buffet restaurant, shop, bar lounge and Starbucks rooms are Toy Story themed; Newport Bay is a Marthas Vineyard themed (same architect as Y&BC), moderate with TS /buffet, shop, bar, swimming pool and character meets in the very busy lobby, rooms are lovely.
Cheyenne is a pleasant 10-15 min walk along the riverside, to the parks (better than getting the buses). Newport Bay is a 5 min walk to the parks.
Our choice is Cheyenne, unless the price was right - we honestly prefer it - though we'd always book to eat at the buffet at Newport Bay.

We have stayed at Newport Bay and Santa fe previously,also off site at Hotel L elysee ,Even though we liked offsite its no where near as convenient as on site!
Newport Bay is beautiful and smells amazing however in my opinion for the time you spend in the parks its not worth the price so when we go in september its back to the value hotels but staying at Cheyenne this time just for something different! The walk to the parks from Cheyenne and Santa fe is quick and a lovely walk!

If Sequoia Lodge is not available we stay at Cheyenne. The immersive theming is great, you really feel you are in the wild west (until you go in the bank and it’s a Starbucks!)

We’ve stayed at most of the hotels and for the price you can’t beat Cheyenne in my opinion. As others have said it’s a short 10-15 mins walk to the parks, it’s an easy walk and you can always stop off at some of the other hotels you pass for a look around or a drink in the bar. The theming is lovely and certainly rooms we’ve stayed in have been of a good standard.
Sequoia Lodge is also worth considering if it’s not too pricey.

We've stayed in all the hotels on site and I must say the Cheyenne is a top favourite of ours.

Whilst the NPB is gorgeous and even more so since the refurb, but if you are unfortunate enough to be put in a room on the far side, it can take 10 mins to get out of the hotel alone! It's huge.

Also thinking about budget, now we've ticked off all the hotels (our own personal bucket list) I always opt to say in Sequoia or Cheyenne and the little bit of money we save we can spend in the parks, as ultimately it is a place to sleep. The Cheyenne has been done up and the theming is nice (toy story/wild west) and there is a starbucks on site which is a big bonus for us and we love a coffee!

If it is your first to DLP I would highly recommend staying on site, however maybe if you're tempted to visit again a stay offsite can be nice and more relaxed. If staying off-site then Val D'Europe is a great area with a huge shopping centre and loads of restaurants (much much cheaper than DLP) and it's nice to have a shopping and chill day.

If you wanted the best of both worlds... you could stay one night in Val D'Europe before going to DLP, book a cheaper hotel; they have a few Ibis. Do some shopping have a nice meal, and then the next morning get to DLP for early on and get a full day in the park? We often opt to do this
