Becky, I contacted Disney and you are indeed correct. I had read on a website about this (and heard from a neighbour!) and it is not correct anymore

This is what I was told -

"The hotel fastpasses were intially available to all guests - regardless of their chosen Disneyland Resort Paris hotel. This proved problematic, as too many people were using the fastpass line - so it has now been restricted to Hotel New York, The Disneyland Hotel & Newport Bay Club (Admiral's Floor).

Apparently it is also mentioned on "page 23 of the Spring/Summer 2005" brochure (I don't have it so cannot check).

Sorry for the confusion

Richard.

That's a shame. Would have been nice, but I can see how it might overwhelmed the fastpass lines. Still, it's another plus for my beloved Hotel New York!!

I wanted to ask: what is the main benefit of staying in montana room? People have said that it's in the main building as opposed to in an outdoor lodge, but I can't see why that would make it worth charging more for. (I know you can get free upgrades if there is space but travel agents charge more for the montana rooms than standard rooms.) I guess I just don't see why being in an outdoor lodge is any worse than being the in the main building!

Any other benefits to a montana room?

Hi Bonnie,

I think it depends on what you want from your trip and who you are travelling with. When I went last Feb it was very cold and it was bliss not having to wrap up to go to breakfast / the shop / the bar, or even better not having to wrap up to return from the bar Also great not to have to wrap up my 2 DDs in all their coats, hats, scarves, gloves etc.


It only cost us something minimal like £5 per night so it was definitely worth doing. Not sure I'd be so worried in more temperate weather though

I guess it's down to that old adage: location, location, location

HTH

Karen

Also the Montana rooms have a mini-bar and the standard ones don't. I agree with Karen that it's definitely worth the extra in the winter. But in the summer it's probably very pleasant walking through the grounds to your room.

Ahh okay. Well it'll just be me and my girlfriend, and we'll be going in summer, so I don't think it'll be a problem after all. I can't see us using a minibar either so I'm sure the outdoor lodges will be fine!

Thanks!

Unhappy

A great posting. I stayed at the Sequoia last time I went and really liked the theming of this hotel. It was just near enough to the parks for a pleasant 'warm up' walk first thing in the morning and not too far for the end of day stagger back

Trouble is, it makes me sad!

I'm saving furiously for a new computer at the moment and until I've sorted that out I can't afford to go back to DLP.

Its taking soooooo long


Perhaps I could try.... ? What do you think?

what do you mean by that? the VIP Fastpasses you get when staying at a suite?.

You still can get fastpasses at the atractions itself.

I've just gone back and re read this posting. That's not very good is it, considering how much they charge to stay in Disney hotels. I'd have thought that fastpasses should be available to all who stay 'on site' Not too happy about that. With me having a disability queuing is a real nightmare - I shall not be going back to the Stunt Show in the Studios park for just that reason. Queing was an utter nightmare - I think I spent longer in the queue than watching the show!

I guess the problem might have been Nik, that it resulted in very little FPs being left for offsite visitors at all?

I'm only guessing. It would be a wonderful perk to have though

I thought the fastpasses were only for those who stayed on site anyway?
