Ticket To...Newport Bay Club

Next stop on our whirlwind tour of the Disneyland Resort Paris is that of the Disney's Newport Bay Club hotel.

Situated directly across from the New York hotel we looked at on Monday, the Newport Bay Club Hotel was designed by Robert A. M. Stern. When you first look at the hotel, do you notice any similarities to other Disney hotels? Perhaps the Yacht and Beach Club hotels near Epcot in Walt Disney World? Well, that would be because they, too, were designed by Stern and opened two years prior to the Newport Bay Club hotel.
The hotel's theming is that of the Cape Cod and New England areas, with plenty of nautical references, and it was named after Newport in Rhode Island. In traditional Disney style the theming of the resort continues to the lakeside, where there is a petite lighthouse as you walk towards the Sequoia Lodge. As of today, the hotel is the largest on Disneyland Paris property, with 1098 rooms.

For those of you landlubbers who fancy a bite to eat, you can dine at 'Cape Cod' or the 'Yacht Club', then you can wash that all down with some rum at 'Fisherman's Wharf' or the 'Captain's Quarters' bars. Another favourite of this hotel is the character dining opportunities, at both breakfast and dinner. The resort is very family orientated, and a beautiful place to spend some time in.
That said, we can't spend too long at one location! Hold on to your tickets - just a few more hotels left before we can get back to the parks. Tally-ho!

Thanks for visiting my blog too - I'm looking forward to more posts from yourself!
And I'm going to stray away from Disneyland Paris every now and then - I took so many photos on my recent trip I wanted an outlet to share them.
And one day maybe your kiddies will treat you to a trip to Disney in Europe ;)
Thanks again!
