    Disneyland Hotel or Hotel New York - welcome your views

    hi folks,

    I am considering taking the family to DLP the last week of August (bank holiday week here in the UK, but a cheaper week at DLP and fireworks/Fantillusion should be on).

    Because it is likely to be heaving, and Holiday Inn et al have put their prices up, plus kids go free (we have two we will have to pay for now - age 5 and 3). We are thinking of a Disney hotel.

    We want Aircon and room service facilities, and the HNY works out cheaper than the Admiral's floor at the rubbish NBC. But I am finding it hard to decide.

    The HNY offers the best value usually, but if there is a conference on, the experience can be reduced, plus it's not the most kid friendly. But it is a lovely place to stay.

    But I am really tempted by the DLH this time with character breakfasted included each morning, no need to go through the stupid security checks, a free fastpass every day, valet parking, and with two kids this age naps/swimming will be welcome when the park is open 8-11. I think I am swaying towards the DLH, but at an extra 600, 900 euro, $1200, I am not 100% percent sure it is worth it. We have stayed here before, but we were a couple then. We almost always have a meal or cocktail at the DLH, so we know the public areas well.

    I welcome your thoughts.

    I've only stayed there once, but it was a great experience. Beeing right at the gate of the park is priceless. Only in DLP and TDL can you live that, so i'd suggest you do. The only drawback is the pool which is very limited and indoor only. I think a hotel of this class deserves a better pool. But other than that it's a wonderful place to stay. Beside, breakfast is huge, and if you pay the price you can have a nice view (wouldn't count getting one on the park side though, even if willing to pay, they're always taken)

    Even you loathe Newport so much, have you considered a Resort suite there? You get room service, VIP fast passes, breakfast in Captains Quartier, big room with lounge. And with a price of reqular room in DLH.

    Well I was thinking that the Grand Californian really does make our stay at DL, so this would be great too. Sadly the Marriott (where we like to stay these days) is pretty much booked, and the 3 days where the houses are available, it is the same price as the DLH, but does not include tickets or breakfast.

    Thanks for the suggestion Zarniwoop. But after 3 times trying the NBC and never having had a good stay there, I am nervous to try that one.

    Go for the DLH if you can afford it. We have stayed there 3 times (and 2 times at the HNY) And the DLH will make your stay.
    Although I like them both I would always choose the DLH. Because it is the most magical off them all.
    And you are right, the HNY is more of an Adult Hotel. I love the theme of the HNY but I assume that children will love the pink hotel even more.
    And it is so great to have breakfast in the morning with a view to the park. Or walk around in the evening and have a look at an almost empty park.
    Or in the morning you can walk around FantasiaGardens and you are almost alone.
    And during the day you can go back to your room within minutes and you can refresh/heat up yourself. And if the children should feel tired, go to your room make a 30 minutes break and when you leave the hotel afterwards you are right in the park and you don't have to think about that you have to walk 15 minutes (with children) back to the parks.
    We will be there in June and my BF agreed that we will stay at the HNY. But I upgraded our stay to DLH because it is his birthday.
    And I do not regret that I had to spent 300 for this upgrade.
