Why we love it

The theming is grand and classical, yet still very Disney at the same time. Aside from all the wonderful dining and leisure experiences that this Moderate Hotel offers, one of our absolute favourite things has to be the decor of the rooms. The very special Disney princess themed Royal Guest Rooms really add a little extra magic to your holiday.

Voor een Disney liefhebber als ik ben was dit het paradijs op aarde. Wat een geweldig park. Mijn kleinkinderen hebben ook genoten. Toen wij de laatste dag op de boot stonden om naar de uitgang te gaan zei hij tegen zijn moeder: "Ik kan wel huilen mama dat wij nu weggaan" Wij zijn nu alweer een paar dagen thuis en hij zegt nog dagelijks dat hij heimwee heeft naar Disney.

Ook een superleuk park net als Hollywood Studios. Het nadeel van deze parken is dat zij niet zo groot zijn en er niet zo heel veel attracties zijn. Daardoor zijn er behoorlijk lange wachtrijen.
