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.

Parking Fee: A charge of $20 plus tax per night will payable locally if you park a car at the hotel. This fee is subject to change.

Please Note: Selected room categories can only accommodate a 5th person in the room if a child aged between 3-9yrs is on the reservation. Rooms cannot accommodate 5 adults.
