I *think* it was just a sofa, but we've only ever been as a pair so never really had much need to find out!

I imagine the phone booking people would be able to tell you for sure.

I am going to DLRP next month and are starting to get very excited. I have already booked room with another hotel, but the location of Disneyland Hotel, VIP Passes Extra magic hours are looking very tempting.

So I have a few questions:

We are 2 adults and 2 kids.

1. Can someone describe the family room? Does it have a separate bedroom?
2. Someone mentioned that family rooms are classed as suites, do we get VIP Passess if we book a family rooms?
3. How much does the Castle Club rooms cost extra per night?
4. Do we have to book by phone if we want Castle Club room?
5. Are there any family rooms at the castle club?
6. Does every guest get the Extra Magic Hours option, even if not staying in a suite?

7. Which is the nearest hotel besides Disneyland Hotel to the Disneyland Par?

    Hi MtM,

    I can only answer the last couple of questions for you-

    Every guest of every Disney onsite hotel, from the Santa Fe right up to the Disneyland Hotel, has access to Extra Magic Hours. So do guests of the Hotel L'Elysee Val d'Europe, and all Dream annual pass holders.

    The next nearest hotel to the parks, after the Disneyland Hotel, is the Hotel New York (just at the other end of the Disney Village from the Parks).

    I tried to upgrade to CC about 2 1/2 months before my recent trip and all the rooms were gone! They get booked up REALLY fast! I also tried to get a suite at and of the on site hotel and they had all gone too!

    You do have to phone for CC, normal reservtions number for normal CC rooms and you have to call the suites line if you want park view!

    For a trip in december I was quoted £739 for a DLH normal room and £1600 for CC, (3 night stay) from what I've heard tis about £80/night extra for park view)

    Family rooms don't get VIP FP, and aren't classed as suites.

    Hope that helped! :)

    No, it is after the security check :)
    I am surprised that we do not see more people passing through the security check with suitcases in that case.

    When we go in October we will have a lot more luggage than normal, as we are staying at MTE for 5 nights prior to our one night at the DLH

    Do you think we might be able to persuade someone to move our luggage from MTE to DLH? Is it worth asking, particularly keeping in mind that I have some mobility problems, and lugging luggage about isn't ideal for me?

    I suppose the alternative might be to make more than one trip on the shuttle bus :eek:

    I have read on here about luggage being moved for guests between hotels but that's when it's been all Disney hotels, don't know whether it would apply to off-site ones. :confused3

    Annette, there are minibuses to shuttle disabled guests to/from the parks and I've seen them collect guests from the Explorers. You request them either at your hotel or at City Hall/Studio Services. I can't remember whether you use an easy access card or not. If you don't usually use one, it might be worth getting a letter from your doctor and seeing if they can help move you and your luggage in one of these minibuses. :)

    Yes, I do have a letter from my Doctor, and I do obtain an easy access card on visits as I am not able to stand for long periods in queues.

    Sounds like maybe I'm not using to my full advantage though, as we've always just got on the shuttle bus, with the rest of the crowds! :laughing:

    Oooh Annette,

    If you get your own transport from your hotel to the DLH, you'll go to the main entrance, and get a concierge with one of those gold luggage-carriers on wheels - how cool would that be????

    On your departure day - what time can you go into the CC lounge until?

    It's not just 11 is it?

    We have been in CC 3 times and all the times we used the lounge until we went home (17.00/18.00). The staff told us this was OK.
    We love CC. Enjoy!!

    Yaaaay! Thank you!

    Would you sacrifice a free night in a normal DLH room for CC? I'm going in January when VIP fastpass wil do us no favours really.....

    No-one? Where's Marcus when you need him?
    :rotfl:

    I am sorry but I am only a DLH standard room addict. We could not afford CC yet. :lmao:
    But I have red in many answers here on the forum that quests of the CC can use the lounge until the end of their departure day. So I can confirm what Liesbeth said.

    I am having this dilemma myself as it is more than double the cost of staying standard however I know when I get there I will miss the lounge. Especially as it will be so cold. It is nice having somewhere to quickly retreat to for a hot drink and the main hotel gets so hectic in the evening it is nice having somewhere quiet to sit especially as the parks close early. It is just the cost that is holding me back as we will only be there for 3 nights and I always said I would only do CC for long stays.

    I think I'm going to do the 3 nights in a standard room....as I am promised extra special magic maybe I'll get CC if it isn't full anyway. The lady has given me her contact details to let her know all my information. SO maybe I'll subtley mention CC? Or the Sleeping Beauty Suite! Hahaha. But thne I'd like to know what bonus I'd get if I booked CC.....just its gonna be £700 odd for 2 nights CC as opposed to 3 nights standard for £530. I could buy an awful lot of afternoon tea for £200! Also i figure if I ask at check in if theres any chance of an upgrade maybe they wont catch on I only paid for 2 nights and just charge me the extra per night for CC?
