The Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Paris opened after a royal reimagining on January 25th, 2024. We booked opening night in a Deluxe room, which includes the Deluxe club level lounge. This is different than the Castle Club, which receives an enhanced experience over Deluxe.
While our Deluxe hotel room experience was not great, the Deluxe Lounge was wonderful and we spent a lot of time there (especially since our final room wasn’t ready until almost 12 hours after our arrival). I am dividing up my articles for breakfast and tea time, since it would be a 100+ photo article otherwise. I have a lot of food photos and we have a video tour.
Here is a look at our Disneyland Hotel Deluxe Lounge breakfast experience.
First, this is our Deluxe Lounge video overview, which includes breakfast and Tea Time.
Here is the Deluxe Lounge information, including times of availability. The Deluxe Lounge is open for table service drinks from 11:00 a.m. through 11:00 p.m. Breakfast is from 7:00 a.m. through 11:00 a.m. Tea Time is 4:00 p.m. through 5:30 p.m., although I think it lasted until 6 p.m. while we were there. Everything is subject to change.
You can follow the signs to the Deluxe Lounge, which say “D Lounge”.
The Deluxe Lounge is located in this hallway. There is a sign above, though it is hard to read here.
There is a podium at the front entrance for a Cast Member to check guests in.
Here is a look at the lounge. It is quite comfortable and I like the earth tones.
Each time we went to the Deluxe Lounge, we received a menu to order drinks from. The menu contains drinks that are included with the lounge and then also a bar menu, including the 28 € signature cocktails. We tried one signature cocktail at Fleur de Lys to write about, but it wasn’t anything special. For 28 €, I would expect an amazing drink presentation. I am just focusing here on the non-alcoholic drinks.
There are two pages of included beverages, one has cold drinks and the other hot. The nectars are very nice, and there is soda and water.
There is no option to grab-and-go a drink from the Disneyland Hotel Deluxe Lounge, it is a table service experience. We were told we could take our drinks with us, though. We also learned later that our room refrigerator should have had waters, a nectar and snacks, but it was empty.
The nectars are from Alain Milliat and were popular with our group. Honestly, the beverage choices (including the hot chocolate, coffee and tea in-room) are excellent.
The second page of included drinks has coffees, hot chocolates and teas. I was told the hot chocolate brand is Lavazza (I had no idea Lavazza made hot chocolate). I had expected it to be Monbana because that is the brand in the hotel room and other Disneyland Paris club lounges.
The tea is Betjeman & Barton, which is also found in the hotel room. Betjeman & Barton is a French tea company that was founded in 1919.
Jeff ordered one of the coffees that includes a stencil of the iconic Mickey Mouse clock on the Disneyland Hotel. One of the benefits of the Deluxe Lounge is that you can come here to drink much of the day. Without the lounge, hot and cold beverages can run about 10 € each at other Disneyland Hotel locations.
A small biscuit was delivered with each hot drink, with a castle imprint.
Now it is time for breakfast! Just like any other Disneyland Paris club level lounge, breakfast is not included on the first day of your visit. If you arrive at 7:00 a.m., you have to wait until after breakfast has ended to enter the lounge.
I am looking at the hot foods first. This photo includes baked beans, mushrooms, bacon and tomatoes. Mushrooms are a staple on almost any Disneyland Paris buffet, and these are all items that are part of an English breakfast.
The bacon was crispy, like bacon we have in America.
The sweet waffles have crowns on them.
Crepes are also a staple of club level buffets in Disneyland Paris. There are little jars of Nutella if you want chocolate hazelnut filling.
There are also pancakes.
Porridge was behind the pancakes.
The scrambled eggs were cooked well and not runny.
These fried potatoes are standard for not only Disneyland Paris club lounges, but for breakfast buffets across property. They are very basic, it would be nice to have a different kind of potato.
Chicken Sausage with Morels.
This is the cold side of the buffet.
There are a number of kinds of cereals.
There was salad, including cucumbers, tomatoes and corn.
There was salmon and maybe turkey in the back? I didn’t see signs for either of these items.
Next is Roast Ham with Herbs and Special Dry Aged Charolais Beef.
There were Ferme des Peupliers yogurts.
A nice selection of fruit was nearby.
And of course, there is cheese.
I didn’t even notice the sign for this item, the Chunky Carmelized Apple Compote Dessert. I would have tried a bite.
There were other compotes as well.
We still have a little more of the buffet to see, but here is a look at my plate.
The hot chocolate I received was much thicker than it had been the previous day. This reminded me more of Brasserie Rosalie hot chocolate, almost pure chocolate.
The juice also tasted freshly squeezed.
The last section of the buffet is breads, nuts, hard boiled eggs and such.
There were small wrapped cakes, like pound cake.
Mystery food! This silver wrapper contained cookies, which were very nice. I am not sure what the item below is.
There were dates.
Also, walnuts, almonds and dried apricots were here.
The croissants and other breads were wonderful.
The hard boiled eggs are next.
Here, there were prepared fruits and milk.
Sweet Puff Pastry Crown.
This cake includes a fleur-de-lys.
There was standard sliced bread.
Here are more croissants and a Pain au Chocolat.
Rolls and bread are next.
Besides the Nutella, there was special honey.
A sign gives information about the honey from Kevin Holtz.
The breakfast was very good quality and plenty of choices.
And you can order as many drinks as you want, I ordered a Vittel as well.
For us, the Disneyland Hotel Deluxe Lounge (the D Lounge) was the one real benefit of booking a Deluxe room. For us, there wasn’t really much benefit otherwise during our stay. We had friends who stayed in a Superior Family Room a couple of days later and received their room quickly in an excellent location near the lobby, with a fridge including drinks. I will post my thoughts on that in an article later this week. And I plan to post the Deluxe Lounge Tea Time article tomorrow.
We have many more Disneyland Hotel articles and I have 20+ more to come! Keep checking back on Mousesteps in the coming weeks.
