This past week has been an exciting time for Disneyland Paris fans, as we were finally given the Parks reopening date of the 17th June, but we were also treated to the official opening date of Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel on the 21st June 2021. Bookings for the worlds first hotel dedicated to Marvel began on the 18th May, with a launch offer of an exclusive Marvel print and 1 free non-alcoholic drink per Guest, for bookings made before 29 July 2021 and with an arrival date before 30 March 2022. With more and more information released each day, this post will be your one stop guide and include everything you need to know about Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel.
The 4 star rated Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, is the new home of many Marvel Super Heroes (and villains!), and showcases the fantastic artists who have created them over the years. Created with a perfect mix of New York culture and vibrant energy, the hotel offers premium comfort and personalised services to all its guests.
Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, is just a Thor hammer throw from the Parks and is one of the closest hotels to the entrance of Disneyland Paris and the Walt Disney Studios Park. A short 5-10 minute through Disney Village and you will see this fantastic hotel sitting alongside Lake Disney, making it ideal for late nights and early mornings!
The hotel is also offering a free shuttle bus to the bus stops located by Marne-la-Vallée Chessy Train Station. The website says the shuttle service will take around 8 minutes.
Looking at the map and the new road layouts, we think it may be easier and quicker for most guests to simply walk to the park. However, we will test this when the Hotel officially opens.
