Accommodation

Most Disneyland® Paris school tours simply house groups at a standard hotel in Paris, miles away from the parks and attractions.

Well, not Study Experiences. With us, your theatrical troupe will stay on-site at Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne, enjoying continental breakfasts, a delicious buffet restaurant, and endless Wild-West-themed fun. All at a magical price. Yee-haw!
