We once again visited Disneyland Paris to attend the Marvel Avengers Campus previews. During this trip, we stayed at Disney's Hotel Cheyenne. Before this trip, there were only two on-site Disney hotels (that are open) we'd haven't yet stayed at. Those two hotels are Santa Fe and Cheyenne. As this visit was during the July heatwave, an air-conditioned Cheyenne was a must.
Disney's Hotel Cheyenne is a 3-star hotel on Disney property with a wild west theme inspired by Toy Story. The hotel has 1,000 air-conditioned rooms with each block named after icons of the Wild West. There are only standard room types at this hotel, which means no club-level services. You can also pay a little extra to stay near the hotel's main facilities, subject to availability. We booked that upgrade on this trip. Our room was on the far left of building 18 nearest the hotel's main facilities just a few rooms in. We walked outside and the Starbucks was right in front of us- delicious! The bus stop to the parks was also there so there wasn't much walking at all.
Entrance & Lobby
The lobby area is generally smaller than Disney's Sequoia Lodge, but it does have some similar vibes due to the use of wood in the aesthetic. There is a small seating area, with three main walkways to the restaurant, bar, and shop. When I first entered the lobby I was surprised by how much I liked it. It has a nice (but subtle) distinct smell (something Disney's Newport Bay hotel is lacking and Disney's Sequoia Lodge and Disney's Hotel New York - The Art Of Marvel excels in). We walked up to the reception and were seen right away. We checked in our bags and headed off to the park as our room would not be ready until 3pm. Toy Story characters (I believe Woody or Jessie) do come out for photo opportunities most mornings.

The Wild West theming is apparent in the external building design and is carried through to the interior. For the most part, it works really well. The buildings are well spaced apart and it feels like you're on a Wild West film set. Some of the buildings are little flat looking, but other buildings - like Starbucks and Laundry - that have extra wood elements to their design so they appear more three-dimensional and "real".
As an avid coffee drinker, I was excited to learn that Disney's Hotel Cheyenne has a Starbucks! No more waiting in the morning queues at Disney Village this trip. There is a buffet restaurant on-site called The Chuck Wagon Café that serves western-style food. There's a bar called Red Garter Saloon, and a Laundry building which has vending machines and Ice.
I really liked these rooms. I actually think I prefer it (ever so slightly) over the rooms at Disney's Sequoia Lodge. Like with the lobby, it has the same sort of vibe with the use of wood, but the Toy Story touches like the boot lamp and lights work really well. It's well equipped with 2 EU, 1 English, and 2 USB-A charging plugs. These rooms also feature a ceiling fan! There's no fridge or tea/coffee-making families, but most buildings have a coffee machine which allows you to get free drinks using your room key Magic Pass. There's plenty of drawers and hanging space, and a safe if you need it. The bathroom is basic but in good condition, and the water pressure is really good. The beds were comfy enough and there were plenty of pillows. I had no issue sleeping comfortably in this room.
We really enjoyed our stay at Disney's Hotel Cheyenne. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but thankfully ended up enjoying it a lot more than I thought. I would have no issue staying here again. Usually this hotel costs a little less than Disney's Sequoia Lodge, but Disney's Hotel Cheyenne is a little further away from the parks. Disney's Sequoia Lodge feels to me like it's just around the corner, but Disney's Hotel Cheyenne does feel like quite a long walk, especially after a long day in the parks. Disney says it's a 20-minute walk, but with tired feet, it can feel a little longer. There is a shuttle bus of course, so if you're one to always take the bus anyway, the walking distance is a non-issue. Overall, I recommend this hotel.
