Howdy to the Wild West

This week is going to have a bit of a Western theme here at DF'82. We are going to take a trip back in time, without the need of a Delorean or any other time machine. Instead, we are going to head over to Disneyland Paris and visit the fantastic Disney's Hotel Cheyenne.The hotel is one of the moderately priced hotels in the resort, and is especially popular with families with children, due to the great theming and facilities Cheyenne has. There is no swimming pool, or air conditioning (although there are in-room ceiling fans), no sit-down restaurant (only self-service) and no luggage delivery service. However, for the guests who really want to experience staying on-site at Disneyland Paris and a bed to rest their heads at the end of the day, this is a great option!

Hotel Cheyenne is a taste of the Old Wild West, a la Hollywood, and has an area which is just like stepping onto the set of 'High Noon'. The resort was designed by the architect Robert A.M. Stern (who also designed Disney's Newport Bay Club), and opened at the same time as the park, Euro Disney, in April 1992.

The lobby has been themed so it is like a Claims Office in the Goldrush era, with a claims desk and a huge stone fireplace. The reception area is also a great place to meet some Disney characters, if you're lucky enough!This week we are going to take some time to appreciate one of the most fun hotels on the Paris property - with all the Disney Details and Hidden Treasures that are often overlooked by most hotel guests. Get ready to draw, readers!
