The word “Newport” probably means nothing to the average visitor but both in the UK and USA it stands for quality competition yachting. Paris Disneyland Newport Bay Club hotel is one of seven on the Disney site, now four-star and modelled on a typical New England 1900s' coastal mansion.
All Disneyland hotels have an American theme perhaps lost on the majority of patrons, who are 48% French with those from the US a tiny percentage. The UK represents 16%, the largest overseas contingent.
Disneyland attracts 15m visitors a year and will celebrate its 25th birthday in 2017. Major refurbishment work and the introduction of new rides is under way.
The Newport sits attractively by Lake Disney with a short walk to the park and complimentary shuttle available.
It has undergone a complete refurbishment, again with Sylvie Massara in charge (see Paris convention centre reopens in this issue). The integration with the meetings area is seamless, with the yachting theme throughout.
The Compass Club on the ground floor is open to executive-floor clients with a full breakfast. There is also a private check-in and, as with all Disney properties, facilities for those with manoeuvrability problems particularly well looked after. No changes for the indoor/outdoor swimming area, easily the best in Disneyland Paris.
