Opened in June 2021 after two and a half years of labor, Disney’s Lodge New York The Artwork of Marvel is immediately the perfect resort supply at Disneyland Paris in a number of respects.
Solely fools do not change their minds. A couple of years in the past, after we discovered in regards to the renovation of the New York resort and its rethematization, we have been offended. Even when Marvel had already entered the Disney universe since 2009, we hadn’t had the time (the will?) to take an curiosity within the license. Merely put, we have at all times felt nearer to Mickey than Spiderman.
For us, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and Hulk have been nearly unknowns, and it nearly pained us to see them taking on increasingly more area within the parks. After which we watched a film. Then two. Then three. Our kids have began to determine with sure superheroes. And we figured we lastly obtained Thor (discover that great pun).
For the birthday of our second son, a fan of Spider-Man, it due to this fact appeared fairly pure to us to ebook a keep on this distinctive resort on this planet. We anticipated so much, and we weren’t disenchanted.
As quickly as you arrive on the gates of the resort, you instantly discover the eye paid by the Forged-Members to the purchasers of this 4-star institution. An worker takes care of our baggage and directs us to the reception. The foyer is superbly embellished. The black and white comics that encompass the massive entrance doorways, Iron Man’s armor and Captain America’s shields displayed behind a window, the photographs broadcast behind the reception counters, the work hanging on the wall: we discover right here the environment and verticality of New York Metropolis, whereas admiring the artefacts and artworks of the Marvel license, of nice high quality.
We slept in a superior room with 2 double beds, overlooking the backyard. Specific consideration is paid to the design of the furnishings, with an assumed “masculine” facet. The 2 armchairs and the beds are very comfy (particular point out for the bedding: a cloud). The lighting, above the tv or on the head of the mattress, makes it doable to have kind of gentle within the room. A lamp positioned close to the window can also be dimmable. By way of gear, the room has a tv built-in into a big mirror, a espresso machine, a secure, an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer. A loudspeaker constructed into the ceiling of the lavatory permits music to be broadcast through Bluetooth.
Bars and eating places
The primary night, we had dinner on the Manhattan Restaurant. A “desk service” institution that gives Italian-inspired delicacies. The parts are beneficiant and attractive. We took benefit of the Greenwich menu at 42 euros, with the Plus board. Minestrone soup, ham and candied fruit as starters, Bolognese lasagna, fillet of sea bass and fried zucchini as important programs, then creamy chocolate, hazelnut crumble and vanilla poached pear for dessert: we appreciated the flavours, the presentation and the standard of the merchandise served. The setting of the restaurant is nice and refined, with its central gentle representing each the skyscrapers of New York the wrong way up, and Asgard. Lastly, the eye given by the Forged-Members is fixed all through the meal.
The second night, we ate on the Downtown Restaurant, which gives an all-you-can-eat buffet. The dishes are impressed by American, Italian and Asian delicacies. Mini burgers, crab meat sandwiches, mac&cheese, pizzas, pasta with pesto or Bolognese, wok greens with coriander, spring rolls, sautéed candy and bitter pork, and so forth: we have been in a position to style a lot of the dishes on supply, and none disenchanted us. Particular point out for the desserts, for which the Disneyland Paris groups have taken particular care. The macaroons with the Avengers brand, the chocolate mousse topped with a Groot shortbread, the cake within the form of Thor’s hammer: all the things is as stunning as it’s good.
Breakfast (not included within the keep) will be taken on the Manhattan or on the Downtown Restaurant. The alternatives supplied are the identical in each. Listed here are the images of the buffet:
We additionally went to the resort bars. First the Skyline Bar, merely to admire the ornament. The Disneyland Paris Imagineers needed to create the impression of being on the prime of a skyscraper, with a view of the neighboring buildings of New York… and the tower of the Avengers. Hold an eye fixed out for the home windows behind the bar, you may even see Iron Man flying or Spiderman weaving his webs… Assured impact, particularly with the youngest!
Lastly, we took benefit of a cocktail supplied on the Bleecker Road Lounge, positioned reverse the Skyline Bar. The environment is extra cozy and industrial. We sipped a Lemonade Elixir, a mocktail that adjustments colour when the primary half is poured into the second. We additionally tasted the Mystic Glow Cocktail. Along with being good, it is at all times a pleasure to go away along with your luminous ice dice!
The Tremendous Hero Station and the Children Membership
In comparison with different lodges within the vacation spot, Disney’s Lodge New York The Artwork of Marvel gives extra distinctive companies. The primary is the Children Membership, a spot the place kids can draw, take quizzes or play video games on a contact pad, or simply sit again and revel in animated collection on TV. Our keep didn’t enable us to spend a lot time there, however we commend the efforts of Disneyland Paris to combine this sort of service into the renovation of the resort.
Then again, we have been in a position to make the most of the Tremendous Hero Station, a spot the place it’s doable to have your image taken within the units of the Marvel movies. Admission is reserved for resort residents, and is just doable by reservation (one week earlier than on the official Disneyland Paris app). Two formulation are proposed: one consists of the assembly with Spiderman and the photo-locations, the opposite solely the photo-locations. For our little Spider-Man fan, it was unthinkable to not ebook the primary choice. We have been due to this fact in a position to change a couple of phrases and take a couple of images with Peter Parker in his costume, earlier than posing within the units and taking ourselves for Iron Man and even Captain Marvel. A pleasant second, and an actual added worth for the residents of the resort.
The swimming pool
The Disneyland Paris groups took benefit of the resort’s renovation to additionally remodel the swimming pool. It now contains a New York subway decor. All in sobriety, it corresponds completely to the theme of the resort. There’s a giant pool, a pool for the little ones and a jacuzzi space, closed on the time of our keep as a result of covid pandemic. The altering rooms have safe code lockers. Towels are offered on the entrance.
Our abstract opinion
After a keep at Walt Disney World and a lackluster keep on the Cheyenne resort, the New York The Artwork of Marvel resort reconciled us with Disneyland Paris. The companies and a spotlight offered by the Forged-Members from arrival to departure guarantee a high quality keep. Past being a resort, the institution can also be an actual museum, with its many work. Marvel followers will take actual pleasure in strolling via the corridors of the resort to find the artworks created by artists from all around the world, whereas the Tremendous Hero Station will delight younger and outdated alike. Let’s not neglect the Downtown and the Manhattan Restaurant which, in our opinion, will elevate the extent of catering at Disneyland Paris.
