Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch

Smelly and uncomfortable
"We were very disappointed with the Davy Crockett Ranch. We received an email a few days before we were due to depart notifying us of the pool closure. We were also notified on arrival that the Tavern on site was closed. Our cabin (222) was extremely smelly - both inside (musty damp smell) and out. The musty smell did not get any better during the 4 days that we were there. When we got home I had to wash everything that we had packed, whether it had been worn or not.
On arrival we found a broken bathroom door handle, broken window hinge and the sliding patio door would not close once it had been opened. Having said this the maintenance man was quick to attend and sorted everything out for us. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. This was such as shame because it was such a special holiday for us. Luckily it did not detract from the enjoyment of Disneyland Paris!"

Good place to stay
"Hi I just came back from staying in Davy Crockett ranch in Disney. We stayed on the Mocassin trail and was very impressed with the cabin, it had fantastic air con and was spotlessly clean, there was a very clean microwave, fridge etc. I really could not fault it. We collected our breakfast daily from nearby, very substantial breakfast of croissants, cereal, baguettes, milk, orange juice and loads of Jams and Nutella. The cabin could sleep between five and ten, there were four of us. There is a restaurant nearby and a swimming pool and a shop with all we needed. We ate in the restaurant one night and had an excellent buffet with loads of choice. Of course to stay here you must travel by car but it def was worth staying there and would recommend it to anyone.

rural safe haven
"We stayed in bobcat trail in march 2015, gotta say BEAUTIFUL spotlessly clean quiet and safe, The bed was better than mine.
Brochure never said about en suite bathroom ( Brucie bonus).
No oven but never advertised.
BBQ and patio area lovely, no rubbish in view, reception was very comforting, Didn't really experience the tavern or saloon but the shop made our girls feel special.
Directions back from main parks a little hazy,( got lost).
The swimming was just amazing and authentic. No queuing and when we got out there were no more than 15 people in there.

Rustic atmosphere pleasant accomodation
"Stayed at Davy Crockett aug 2011,lodges were clean & rustic, kitchen could have been a bit more stocked, & kids got bored with the croissants for breakfast by day 3, enjoyed free parking here & disney & extra 2 hours at disney, kids enjoyed the fun pool and play park and disney characters on-site and the woodland location, we all enjoyed the air-con in the lodge as the weather was 28"+.
The only downside was the drive to disney although less than 10mins it meant one of us had to not drink, the prices in Disney Village and Parks were very expensive not helped by the weak pound/exchange rate, would recommend this if you dont mind driving on hols"

Great budget accomodation
"We have just returned from 4 days/3 nights to Disneyland Paris, we stayed at the Davy Crockett Ranch and we had a great time!
We drove from Gloucestershire, 3 hours to the Eurotunnel, leaving at 5.30am. Tunnel at 8.20am, 3 hour drive to the Ranch, including a stop at a supermarket in Calais as we knew things would be expensive.
We were there by 2pm, check in was a little slow but our cabin was ready.
The cabin was basic, a little worn around the edges, but seeing as we were only going to be there for a few hours a day we were happy. It was quiet and the beds were comfortable. 2 ring electric hob which warmed up surprisingly quick, large fridge with small freezer compartment, microwave, kettle, dishwasher.
Breakfast was supplied, crossiants, brioche, orange juice, UHT milk, tea, hot chocolate, jams, nutella. All very nice for a self catering cabin!
The parks were fab, you have to plan well and be cunning with your fast pass tickets. We didnât buy any food there, we came back to the cabin at 2pm ish for lunch (our main meal) and a rest and went back again until 8 or 9pm. Then back again for a swim and a jacuzzi as the children had so much energy!
We didnât have to pay for parking as it is included as Davy Crockett is a Disney hotel, also we got in two hours earlier than the public ie from 8am, not all rides are open then though.
We had a great time, and if you donât want too much from your accommodation and you donât want to pay through the nose, this is for you. Enjoy.

March 2011 Davy crockett
"After a long car journey we found the reception staff friendly and welcoming we were upgraded to a 2 bed room lodge and upgraded to a evening character meal from the lunch time meal we had booked.They couldn't have been more helpful and we didn't have to queue for long.The lodge it self was clean and tidy a little dated but generally good.The kids loved the bunk beds and the heaters made it warm and cosy.There is 2 Hobs,a microwave a dishwasher and fridge.No toaster but you could get one from the reception would of preferred a grill or cooker to the dishwasher ,but we got by.The breakfast is provided at the end of the road in a little hut....you get milk orange juice croissants,jams,brioches and a French stick which we used for a packed lunch.The park is a10minute drive,the staff at the park were lovely......really friendly and helpful.Food and drink a little pricey but not as bad as we thought it would be.A fantastic time had by all.

"Stayed here in Feb 2011 and after reading some of the previous reviews was really aprehensive.On arrival we had a very clean fully equipped lodge.The weather was very cold but the lodges were warm,we were 6 adults sharing, all of us needing a shower every morning and there was plenty of hot water to go around.wouldn't hesitate to stay here again during future visits.We used our own transport to get to the parks and this was straight forward on the motorway off at the next junction.Breakfast was included which included French Stick, Croissants etc with plenty of jam butter tea coffee juice etc.We also ate at the ranch restaurant although a tad expensive was thoroughly enjoyable and also got to meet Goofy.

"After reading reviews we were more than a little anxious having booked the cheapest 1 room cabin, and yes it was basic and probably could do with re-decorating but that would inevitably put up the price and for the little time we spent in the cabin awake I'm not sure it'd be worth it. The main thing is that is was very clean and had pretty much every thing we needed.
Going with disney accomodation is worth it for the 'magic hours' of 2 hours extra in the park - we got on more rides in those 2 hours than for the rest of the day as the August crowds brought in a lot of people come 10am!
Only 2 small problems - the dishwasher rack was broken, but we couldn't be bothered to complain - and the breakfast was very limited of bread and coissants, which my kids won't eat but we had cereals for them anyway.
Kids loved the pool (too cold for me though) and meeting the characters in the evening on the ranch was fantastic - meant we could avoid the very long queues in the park!"

Oh dear, what a disaster!
"Our visit to Disneyland Paris was really wrecked by the accommodation here. The chalet was dirty, very smelly,damp, tatty and generally badly maintained. On top of which my wife is gluten intolerant so we preordered a gluten free breakfast, not available first day and after complaining still not delivered the second day. The staff at the reception really could not have cared less. I'd definitely recommend thinking about alternative accommodation"
