"First Disneyland Paris Trip - will not be the last"
Don't go the weekend before Christmas! It was still great, but parks got very busy. Fortunately, staying in the Disneyland hotel gets you access to the parks from 8am, two hours before they are open to the general public. WELL worth getting up early for this. We could walk straight on to any of the rides (but be warned, not all rides are open in both parks at this time). It was fine for us though.
Book dinner well in advance - and be prepared for the cost - it is NOT cheap.
But, we had a great night at the California Grill on the Friday night. Then we booked Waltz for the Saturday night as it was close to the Xmas finale. Booked for 8pm (show at 10pm). We were 8 minutes late....and didn't get seated until 9. Needless to say, we had not finished our meals, and could not have got anywhere near the parade by the time we finished at 10:15. Very upset we missed the show. Very snotty receptionist - we couldn't even get a drink downstairs as the bar was upstairs and we didn't have a table yet!! I am sure the world would have ended had they brought the drinks downstairs. So, go to Disneyland, do not go to Waltz. It was a shame as the food was actually quite good.
No offer of any kind of goodwill gesture or apology either! Maybe just a bad night, but the quality of a place is measured by how well it does when things are not going well, not when everything is running smoothly. We tried not to let it spoil our trip. Just wont eat there next time! Nor should you! ;-)

"We stayed at Seqouia Lodge for a weekend in March."
We loved the location of the lodge. It is walking distance to the Disney park and set in beautiful woods. It gives you the feeling of being in California in a redwood/seqouia forest. We really liked the wood beams giving it a real lodge feeling. Beautiful lodge and location perfect for families!

Bearing in mind I paid £550 for flights and hotel for 2 adults and 2 kids in Oct half term, I wasn't expecting luxury when we arrived and anticipated that the hotel wouldn't be as nice as their website photos depicted it to be. I was very pleasantly surprised and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Luxury for the price.
Very clean, very nice décor & facilities, pleasant staff who automatically spoke English when detecting my poor French (!) and they were helpful. Room was an average size - a little cramped when sofa bed was being used for kiddies but that was ok, small fridge, safe, etc. Breakfast was lovely; cereals, breads & pastries, ham, cheese, yoghurts, fruit salads, cooked foods eg scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages and plenty of variety of drinks aswell. Restaurant served decent food in evening that wouldn't break the bank.
The hotel is situated off the main motorway out of Paris to Marnee Valee where Eurodisney is situated (ony 15 mins drive away) therefore not really the type of hotel you would choose if you wanted to take a scenic walk around it. There is a bus stop about 50 metres away from it but we didn't use it so no idea whether the buses run frequently. Only book if you're definitely hiring a car.
From Paris CDG airport this was fantastically situated - straight down the A104 for about 25 mins - very easy to find hotel. Again, another really easy drive to Eurodisney appr 15 mins.
We stayed for 5 nights this November 2014, it was a great base for Disneyland there was a free shuttle to and from the Disney parks at convient times all day. It is also around the corner from a massive shopping centre plus the train station where you can get a train straight to the centre of Paris in 35-40minutes.
We checked in around 10pm but there are very good English speaker and he was very welcoming.
I like quite hard bed so I slept very nicely and comfortably 2 nights but for my husband, it was a bit too hard.
The hotel locate less than 30 seconds from train station and very easy to find. Their breakfast is a bit expensive but there is very friendly popular bakery in front of station so no worries.
I highly recommend this hotel and would like to stay there again.
