  • [Question] Explorers or Magic Circus......?

    Hi,

    I a wondering has anybosy stayed in either the Explorers Hotel or the Magic Circus... Am contemplating styaing in either of these hotels this summer as I have found good prices for them.

    Also I am planing on buying to AP's and it is working out cheaper to stay in either of the above hotels with a bed and breakfast rate than to stay in the Sante Fe at a bed an breajfast rate...

    So if anyone has been to either of these hotels could you please give me your opinions!

    Thanks

    I've stayed at both, and really I do think they offer better value than Santa Fe and Cheyenne. Now to be fair, I stayed at Magic Circus when it was a Holiday Inn, and because it was on points, we stayed on 9 occassions for free, but still we ranked it higher than Sequoia Lodge or Newport Beach. I understand service has improved since.

    In terms of target markets, the Explorers Targets English budget/moderate families. It can be noisy at peak times, but it is fine. It does have an excellent pool with a waterslide.

    Magic Circus feels a little more upscale, but the pool is just a normal one.

    Either way, you get a full service hotel with air con and a pool for your money. So either way is good.

        We have been doing that for years now. We take the car, so being off site is no big deal. And the Disneyland Hotel is the only one that offers the traditional Disney service standards.

        No we own at the Marriott Ile De France, so we almost always stay there, or the Magic Circus. However the Dreamcastle is even nicer and on a par with the hotel New York.

          Ah I see.. The Dream Castle does look very lovely!!
          We are flying though so will have to rely on the pink bus! I love being able to walk to the parks but I have a long term plan in mind ya see
          I am planning on getting us AP's because we will be back in January and possible next Spring too.... I think it makes economic sense to buy an AP...

                Oh, for that difference, the Explorer's is much better value with the pool, air con, bus, restaurants and bars, much better value by far. Ouch, prices have gone up there.
