Disneyland Paris isn't a cheap break. Just a word of warning, here are a few costs
£140 in fuel and tolls for me (I live 140 miles from home to Dover), total of about 700 mile round trip. In reality it is closer to £325 if you factor in the real cost of driving a car at 35p-45p per mile if you don't have a company car. (Unsure what 35-45p per mile means, read up before commenting)
Food and drink in Disney can set you back £30 each easily a day.
Parking about £10 a day
£40 for AA European cover, possibly cheaper with other companies, unless you already have cover, some bank accounts include breakdown.
Health insurance extra, check your bank account may include travel insurance
Exchange rate is 1.08 € to £, not great, so everything will be expensive. A burger, fries and drink for four would cost a minimum of £75 at Annetts Diner if you bought the cheapest €16 burger and €4 soda each.
You have to allow upto 4hrs driving from calais to Disney with a stop. The last time I went was when the exchange rate was 1.4 and had 3 days in the parks, 4 nights in hotel plus all the above costs. Spending over £1000 for 3 days in the cold, wet, miserable parks. So we decided to never return and have been to florida three times since, booking last minute, our last trip in June cost £5000 for the whole holiday and expenses for a luxury villa with pool, massive suv, ate out all the time, flights, treats, disney and universal tickets, photopass for the memories. £5000 is much more than a Paris trip, but had 2 weeks in Florida. If you ever get the chance to go to Florida, you won't go back to Paris, but if you have never been Parc Astrix nearby is great and so is Disney Studios.

I think £10 per day to park the Eurostar train sounds quite cheap!

You don't need to spend anywhere near £30 a day on food, you COULD do that quite easily but when we went we had breakfast included at the hotel and just bought sandwiches from the wee shop in train station for during the day.
We ate out at Planet Hollywood and a couple of other places for dinner but you could just as easily eat at McDonalds every day if you didn't want to spend too much.
We flew to CDG when we went(we're in Glasgow so Eurostar isn't much good) and just got the TGV train to the park, took 10 minutes and was completely stress free.
I'd also recommend getting breakfast with the characters as they just come round the tables whereas the queues to meet them elsewhere are ridiculous and continental europeans just don't get the concept of orderly queuing, expect much jostling and attempted queue jumping. Not a good idea to get into a fight at a kids theme park.

I take my kids out - they have good attendance and attend 'regular' so no threat of a fine.

Just be careful as the government hasn't given up on this. Last time i read about this the Isle Of Wight had decided they were not going to waste anymore money but the government said it had to continue and they would fund the appeal.

Sorry to have to ask, I'm not sure how it works (Child has only been at school since September). If I wanted to take my child on holiday, say these dates, would I tell the school I'm taking them out for holiday reasons? Sickness? Attendance won't be an issue but curious what most parents say. Thanks (Voted hot).

If your child is under 5 then technically they don't have to be at school at all, so there's very little the school can do. However, as you're registered at school they should be there. It will go down as unauthorised absence and will be on your child's record. There's very little point claiming sickness as your child will just tell all their friends when they come back unless you're comfortable asking/telling your child to lie.

You can ask for the holiday to be approved, but it won't be if your school is a LEA school as guidance from the government and OFSTED means the head can't approve it.

Thanks, but what do people actually do? As I said, I'm new to it all so don't know if people just take the child out and go, let the school know ahead even if unauthorised, would it likely bring about action if you let them know/didn't let them know?

It's not a few quid extra, for a family of four you're talking £2k for flights, plus accomodation and tickets. You're talking £5k

8.5hr flight time vs less than 2hrs when travelling with a 5 year old is a huge difference. You also need a car to get about in Orlando whereas once you're in the park at DL Paris that's you, it's all within walking distance. Having said that I still plan to go to Florida in the future.

I dont disagree its £5k to go to Florida. But it also isnt £554 all in to go to Paris, and its only 3 days. The point is I'd rather pay more and go for 2 weeks and have a proper holiday where its warm!

5 and 2 year old too young for Disney Florida?

I suppose it depends on the children, I didn't want an 8/9hr flight being my daughters first time on a plane.
Personally I think a trip to Disneyland would be wasted on a 2 year old, there'll be loads they can't do and they'll barely remember it but that's just me.
I'm going to wait till my daughters 10 at least before going to the expense of Florida.

In reality it is closer to £325 if you factor in the real cost of driving a car at 35p-45p per mile if you don't have a company car. (Unsure what 35-45p per mile means, read up before commenting)
Food and drink in Disney can set you back £30 each easily a day.
Parking about £10 a day
£40 for AA European cover, possibly cheaper with other companies, unless you already have cover, some bank accounts include breakdown.
Health insurance extra, check your bank account may include travel insurance
Exchange rate is 1.08 € to £, not great, so everything will be expensive. A burger, fries and drink for four would cost a minimum of £75 at Annetts Diner if you bought the cheapest €16 burger and €4 soda each.
You have to allow upto 4hrs driving from calais to Disney with a stop. The last time I went was when the exchange rate was 1.4 and had 3 days in the parks, 4 nights in hotel plus all the above costs. Spending over £1000 for 3 days in the cold, wet, miserable parks. So we decided to never return and have been to florida three times since, booking last minute, our last trip in June cost £5000 for the whole holiday and expenses for a luxury villa with pool, massive suv, ate out all the time, flights, treats, disney and universal tickets, photopass for the memories. £5000 is much more than a Paris trip, but had 2 weeks in Florida. If you ever get the chance to go to Florida, you won't go back to Paris, but if you have never been Parc Astrix nearby is great and so is Disney Studios.
I dont see the attraction of Disneyland Paris. I've always figured its better to pay the
8.5hr flight time vs less than 2hrs when travelling with a 5 year old is a huge difference. You also need a car to get about in Orlando whereas once you're in the park at DL Paris that's you, it's all within walking distance. Having said that I still plan to go to Florida in the future.

You have free Magical Express with Disney which takes you from the airport to the hotel. Then free transport on bus/boat and monorail within the gigantic Walt Disney World.

Just skip EuroDisney as compared to WDW it's Pontins.

The price difference is probably about the same too! Although that isn't the issue for me and never was tbh.
I'll be going to Orlando at some point, I want to go to Universal too so it'll be a much longer trip and I'd rather my daughter was old enough to fully enjoy it. DL Paris was a nice introduction for her, she loved it and doesn't know any different and I'd still recommend it.

Sorry to have to ask, I'm not sure how it works (Child has only been at school since September). If I wanted to take my child on holiday, say these dates, would I tell the school I'm taking them out for holiday reasons? Sickness? Attendance won't be an issue but curious what most parents say. Thanks (Voted hot).
If your child is under 5 then technically they don't have to be at school at all, so there's very little the school can do. However, as you're registered at school they should be there. It will go down as unauthorised absence and will be on your child's record. There's very little point claiming sickness as your child will just tell all their friends when they come back unless you're comfortable asking/telling your child to lie.
You can ask for the holiday to be approved, but it won't be if your school is a LEA school as guidance from the government and OFSTED means the head can't approve it.
Thanks, but what do people actually do? As I said, I'm new to it all so don't know if people just take the child out and go, let the school know ahead even if unauthorised, would it likely bring about action if you let them know/didn't let them know?

Ask the school for a holiday form, they'll confirm what their stance is when they receive that from you. theyre likely to say it will be unauthorised absence but that doesn't mean you can't take them out of school

Pontins, seriously? I hardly think that's a fair analogy, Disneyland Paris is a good introduction if you want a cheaper, closer break and the parks are fine.

Calpol works wonders ;)
5 and 2 year old too young for Disney Florida?

I'd say so. I took my son when he was 8 and it was a perfect age. He's now 11 and at high school and I think he'd find Disney too babyish now. Not to say we wouldnt go to Florida again, but we'd probably spend more time at Universal instead.

Disneyland Paris isn't a cheap break. Just a word of warning, here are a few costs
£140 in fuel and tolls for me (I live 140 miles from home to Dover), total of about 700 mile round trip. In reality it is closer to £325 if you factor in the real cost of driving a car at 35p-45p per mile if you don't have a company car. (Unsure what 35-45p per mile means, read up before commenting)
Food and drink in Disney can set you back £30 each easily a day.
Parking about £10 a day
£40 for AA European cover, possibly cheaper with other companies, unless you already have cover, some bank accounts include breakdown.
Health insurance extra, check your bank account may include travel insurance
Exchange rate is 1.08 € to £, not great, so everything will be expensive. A burger, fries and drink for four would cost a minimum of £75 at Annetts Diner if you bought the cheapest €16 burger and €4 soda each.
You have to allow upto 4hrs driving from calais to Disney with a stop. The last time I went was when the exchange rate was 1.4 and had 3 days in the parks, 4 nights in hotel plus all the above costs. Spending over £1000 for 3 days in the cold, wet, miserable parks. So we decided to never return and have been to florida three times since, booking last minute, our last trip in June cost £5000 for the whole holiday and expenses for a luxury villa with pool, massive suv, ate out all the time, flights, treats, disney and universal tickets, photopass for the memories. £5000 is much more than a Paris trip, but had 2 weeks in Florida. If you ever get the chance to go to Florida, you won't go back to Paris, but if you have never been Parc Astrix nearby is great and so is Disney Studios.
I dont see the attraction of Disneyland Paris. I've always figured its better to pay the extra and go for a couple of weeks to Florida.
8.5hr flight time vs less than 2hrs when travelling with a 5 year old is a huge difference. You also need a car to get about in Orlando whereas once you're in the park at DL Paris that's you, it's all within walking distance. Having said that I still plan to go to Florida in the future.

Actually, if you're just doing Disney you don't need a car at all. They have excellent internal transport.

As another who's has done both, I'd never touch Paris again with a bargepole.

Florida is worth saving for years for if you plan the holiday right. DL Paris is a collosal disappointment by comparison, and the service, weather and 'magic' just isn't there.

I guess there is value for people whof genuinely can't save that level of cash, but if you can, it's worth every penny

I love DLP. Great place to go. Have been to WDW previously, and still love DLP as much. 3 days really isnt enough for me. I like to take a week at the very least to see and do as much as I possibly can. Good deal tho and voted hot!

We've been to DLP many times, and Florida once. With 3 kids the price difference is significant. Both were good, and often we've stayed in Paris rather than on the park, so get some time in Paris as well which is a benefit. My daughter chose to celebrate her 21st at DLP, which in my opinion is a bit over the top but does show she enjoyed it.

Price for this deal is very good, and the Santa Fe hotel is fine for young kids.
