Disney’s Newport Bay Club Disneyland Paris Hotel Review

Newport Bay Disneyland Paris

Among the many hotel options near Disneyland Paris, there are several Disney themed hotels that are on property and within a short walk away from the park entrance. One of the closest is Disney’s Newport Bay Club, a 4 star property that is a 15 minute walk, or 8 minute free shuttle ride, from Disneyland Parc. During our first (pre-Covid) trip to Disneyland Paris, we stayed at the Newport Bay Club and chose to upgrade to Compass Club level for the additional benefits. Find out more about our experience and what to expect in this Newport Bay Club Disneyland Paris review.

Newport Bay Club Disneyland Paris Review

Each of the Disney hotels at Disneyland Paris depict a region of the United States, and as is the case with Disney hotels at all parks, the theming design and details are brilliant and well thought out. Disney’s Newport Bay Club, located on the shores of Lake Disney, is based on the design of grand 1920s New England coastal mansions and features a charming nautical, yacht club theme.

Disney Newport Bay Club

The Newport Bay Club was completely renovated as of Spring 2016 and is a 4-star rated hotel with just under 1100 rooms. The hotel features indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, a sauna and steam bath, a full-service fitness centre and a boutique store.

Free self parking is available at the large car park in front of the hotel. Newport Bay Club has a free shuttle service that takes guests to and from Disneyland Paris about every 15 minutes. This was very helpful during our visit since it was raining most of the time for the first two days.

Hotel Restaurants

There are two restaurants and one bar at the Newport Bay Club: Cape Cod, the Yacht Club and Captain’s Quarters.

Cape Cod is an all-you-can-eat restaurant offering breakfast and dinner. The dinner buffet is mostly seafood specialities with a selection of salad and dessert.

Yacht Club is a restaurant serving dishes inspired by “New England with Mediterranean influences”, with a variety of grilled dishes – fish or steak, a Surf and Turf dish – beef fillet and lobster tail and several seafood specialities such as New England clam chowder and Yacht Club mussels. Prices for main courses start at £30. Click to view the menu for Disney’s Newport Bay Club Yacht Club.

Captain’s Quarters is an elegant nautical themed bar at the Newport Bay Club.

We didn’t have a chance to experience the restaurants or bar during our stay. Our only meal at the Newport Bay Club was the breakfast buffet at the Compass Club lounge, which I’ve shared more about towards the end of this review.

On property hotels at Disneyland Paris

We stayed in a Compass Club room with two double beds that overlooked the lawn in front of the hotel. It was a comfortable room, just right for our family of four for a long weekend at Disneyland Paris. We spent most of the days and evenings during our stay at the Parks, so to be honest it wasn’t worth it for us to upgrade to a lake view room, but it is something we would consider for a longer stay as the lake views do look amazing!

Compass Club Reception

Four of the Disney hotels at Disneyland Paris offer Club level rooms with breakfast included and additional VIP benefits. The Disney hotels with Club rooms and suites are Disney’s Hotel New York – the Art of Marvel (Empire State Club), Disney’s Sequoia Lodge (Golden Forest Room), Disney’s Newport Bay Club (Compass Club) and the Disneyland Hotel (currently closed, Castle Club).

Private reception desk and luggage service – Compass Club guests have an easy check-in process at a private reception desk with a seating area for your group. I found this to be helpful since the queue at the main check-in counter was very long when we arrived and there was hardly any wait to check in at the Compass Club desk. Both check-in and check-out were quick and easy processes during our visit.

Newport Bay Club Disneyland Paris Review

We wanted to stay at a Disney hotel for our first visit to Disneyland Paris, and the Newport Bay Club was an excellent option for its proximity to the park entrance and the additional benefits such as free self parking and Extra Magic Hours that come with staying at a Disney hotel. The Newport Bay Club is only a 15 minute walk away from the parks, but there is the convenient option of a free shuttle ride if, like for us, it’s raining for most of your visit.

We also found the upgrade to Compass Club level worth it for the quick and easy check-in procedure, the access to the Compass Club Lounge for breakfast and afternoon snacks and, at the time, the FASTPASS for each person per day.
