For the last few years, Efteling’s focus has been on getting more international guests to visit the park. As a result of that there have been a few changes here and there, including advertising more here in the UK and providing more information in different languages in places such as their YouTube channel.
As part of these ongoing tweaks, the apartments of Bosrijk will now be classed as hotel rooms. Changes to the Poorthuys and Landhuys apartments include room cleaning service every day (you’ll get clean towels and they’ll make your bed I think!) and breakfast included in your room rate. Another major change which could be classed as a good thing, is that you can now arrive and depart on any day of the week, whereas before, you could only come and go on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. There will also be changes to the seating area, and the dining area will be removed (you’ll have to eat your pizza on the couch!).
“There will be a completely new interior in phases, with the seating area becoming more spacious and more comfortable,” (from looopings.nl)
All of these changes apparently fit the international guests better. The only thing I personally am not looking forward to is losing the dining area. They sell small food items at the shop like cereal and pastries, but where will you eat them if you’ve got no table?! Of course if you’ve got free breakfast you won’t need it for that, but if you choose to eat dinner in your room then you’ve got a problem.
This change apparently effects everything booked after today, so if you’re already booked up, the changes shouldn’t effect you. Enjoy your table!
