Close to the magical Disneyland Paris resort, I was so pleased to experience the Magic Circus Hotel! This hotel definitely is a great alternative to the Disney Hotels as it is still conveniently located near the Disney parks. With the large ‘pink bus’ it is only 10 minutes away.
The Vienna Magic Circus hotel is right next to the Vienna Dream Castle hotel. Both hotels look amazing and are the best four star hotels in the direct Disney area. As soon as you enter the red tent, a magical world is waiting for you! Large horses, happy colors and fun music made us smile immediately!
What makes this hotel truly unique is the space… the large lobby area is the perfect place to hang out with your kids! They can play and actually be kids throughout the place without bothering other guests. There’s a small Disney shop in the lobby area as well as several play areas and a bar. Check-in was great. We arrived pretty early around 10am and our room was already cleaned. All the information we needed to know about the hotel and Disney parks were given in a very friendly yet professional way. Thumbs up!
The room we stayed in was great! The kids absolutely loved the bunk beds and could make their own little space with the curtains! The king sized bed was great as well. We had connecting rooms and all of us agreed that there was enough space for all of us, even closet space. The bath room had a bath tub, single sink and toilet. I loved the Occitane toiletries, there even was a hand creme. Another bonus: 2 televisions! The kids loved having their own television and watched a movie before they were going to sleep. The circus theme is noticeable throughout the room and kids (but not only kids J) will love the rooms at the Vienna Magic Circus hotel!
As you can imagine, there are a lot of fun things to do here! First of all, the Disney parks are close by. There’s a large pink bus who will bring you to the parks in just 10 minutes. They will drop you off at the train station at the Disneyland Resort and within 7 minutes (I timed J) of walking you will reach the entrances of the parks. We never had to wait long as there’s a bus every 15-20 minutes from/to the hotel. After spending a day at the Disney parks, it is great to relax and enjoy the indoor swimming pool. Although the hotel was fully booked, it never felt crowded at the pool. It has a nice size and temperature of the water was good. There’s a large kids play pool as well and several loungers on which parents can look after their little ones. A fitness center is available as well and several beauty treatments are offered at reasonable prices.
At night, we had dinner at restaurant Etoile. The buffet which was priced at 29,50 EUR was great value for money especially with the one adult = one kid for free promotion which was going on while we were there. Especially the dessert buffet was delicious! Do try the brownies… you will love them! Breakfast is served here as well and the buffet style breakfast was very good! The choices are endless and the kids (and not only kids) loved the pancake station where pancakes are prepared right in front of you.
Once again, do considerate this hotel as an alternative to the official Disney Hotels. The Magic Circus hotel is a four star hotel with top notch accommodations and friendly staff. Highly recommended!
