Sequoia Lodge FAQ & Information Thread

Sequoia Lodge
*3 stars* *Mid-Range*



Disney's Sequoia Lodge Hotel is a mid-range property situated on the banks of Lake Disney, about a 10 minute walk from the two Disneyland Resort Paris parks. The hotel is in the theme of the great national parks of Western America. The hotel features 1,011 rooms plus 9 luxury suites along with 2 restaurants and a bar.

The hotel was designed by Antoine Grumbach, a French architect with a passion for the Montana and Yellowstone Parks.

The hotel has the following facilities:

*"Quarry" Indoor & Outdoor Swimming Pool & health club*
Situated in a separate lodge (just a short walk from the main building), the Sequoia Lodge swimming pool offers a fun children's slide plus a jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath and fitness room. There is an outdoor section (linked to the indoor pool) which is open during the summer months.


SWIMMING POOL COMPLEX CLOSED 9th MAY to 13th MAY

*Free or Valet Car Parking*

*Concierge*

*Currency Exchange*

*Children’s Play Corner*

*Kit Carson's Video Games Room **

*Northwest Passage Boutique*
A great shop stocking essentials and snacks plus a whole host of Sequoia Lodge themed items. You can also get your camera film developed here.


*Hunters Grill*
Situated at the ground floor (lakeside) entrance lobby are the two restaurants. Hunters Grill is the more expensive, "fine dining" option, serving delicious carved meats at your table. You can see the evening menu here

*Redwood Bar & Lounge*
A relaxing bar/lounge with a glorious fireplace. Serving hot and cold drinks, the bar is situated next to the lobby of the main building.

Guest Rooms

The Guest Rooms at Sequoia Lodge come complete with natural wooden furniture and are comfortable and well equipped. When making your Sequoia Lodge reservation you can choose between a Standard or Montana room.

What is the difference between a Standard and Montana room?
Montana Rooms are situated in the Main Building -- giving easy access to the hotel facilities. Furthermore, they also have a minibar.
Standard Rooms are located in one of the hotel lodges. They do not come with a minibar.

The two room types come with all the same facilties (except minibar) and are of the same decor standard and size.

TIP - During off-peak season many people get upgraded free-of-charge from a Standard to Montana room. Always make sure you ask if an upgrade is available when checking-in!

Room Facilities include:

•One or Two Double Beds
•Television with international channels, including The Disney Channel for children.
•Telephone
•Radio
•Air-Conditioning
•Mini Bar (Montana Rooms only)
•Hairdryer (upon request)
•A safety deposit is available at the reception
•Single sink bathroom


FOR AN EXTRA SUPPLEMENT, LAKE VIEW ROOMS ARE AVAILABLE

Plan of standard rooms -

Standard Rooms overlook the woodlands, paths or car parking of the hotel. However, occasionally you may be lucky and get a standard room with a "partial" lake view.


Breakfast
All Sequoia Lodge Hotel packages include breakfast. Breakfast is taken at one of the two hotel restaurant each morning. Upon checking-in you will be asked to pre-book your breakfast seating times. This allows the hotel to try and ensure that the whole 1,011 room occupancy does not arrive for breakfast at the same time. However, many people still find the breakfast experience extremely busy and very crowded. It may be best to avoid the most popular times (8am-9am) or take advantage of the Good Morning Fantasyland breakfast option. This is available for no supplement, but must be reserved in advance.

What is "Good Morning Fantasyland Breakfast"?
Guests staying at Disney's Newport Bay Club/Sequoia Lodge/Hotel Cheyenne/Hotel Santa Fe have the option to enter the Disneyland Park one hour before the "official" opening time to enjoy breakfast within the park. This scheme was set up to help reduce the crowding at the hotel restaurants around breakfast time. This choice allows you to enjoy breakfast within one of the Disneyland Park restaurants. As mentioned before, this should be booked in advance, costs no additional fee and is subject to availability. No Disney characters attend the "Good Morning Fantasyland" breakfast.

Suites
Sequoia Lodge has 9 suites, and each comes with the exclusive "VIP FASTPASS" benefits, allowing you to make use of the fastpass facility on attractions in the parks (unlimited). PLEASE NOTE: Sequoia Lodge suites do not come with room service. Honeymoon suites are available for a supplement, with lake views.



Arrival/Departure procedures

Rooms are ready at 3pm on the day of arrival, but if you arrive earlier than this time you can drop off your luggage at the baggage desk and collect your park passes for entry in to the park. An optional Sequoia Lodge Charge Card is available, which allows you to charge gifts, meals, etc. all to your room account. Express check-out is also available. The Sequoia Lodge identity card gives you access to the hotel swimming pool, breakfast and facilities. On the day of departure your room should be vacated by 11am. However, call the front desk if you plan on staying a little longer - usually it is not a problem if you let them know in advance.


If you have any questions or comments regarding The Sequoia Lodge Hotel, then please post them here!

Thank-You to The Tech Board for their help!

Neither can I, Karen!... But I am one of those people: once I start something I just have to hurry up & get it finished! Luckily it doesn't take too long when I use the same "stencil" background code as the other two FAQ threads

Excellent work!

Why does every dish in the restaurant seem to have pineapple in it?

Thanks, that's great! There was some new information there I wasn't aware of. Much appreciated.

I do have one question, though - you mention that there are safes in the rooms. Is this true? I was under the impression that there was just a safe at reception. If there are safes in the rooms, that'll be very handy!

My mistake, Bonnie. Thanks for mentioning this - you are right - there are no safes in the Sequoia Lodge rooms, but just one at reception. I've updated the thread to reflect this!

Richard - why not ask if anyone else can contribute too?

I don't mind taking on one of them

Reid, are you going to volunteer for one after making that bold challenge to Richard?

Thanks so much Richard - this is another excellent thread!

The only question I have is about the hotel fastpasses. Are they definitely for all hotel guests? I was under the impression that they were just for guests staying at the Disneyland, the New York and on the Admirals Floor at the Newport Bay - but I'm very happy to be wrong about that!!
