I'm planning a trip to disneyland in november, and debating driving to keep costs down. Is there anyone who can give me info on whether its worth it?
We'd be going from Sheffield, and would probably stay in a travelodge or something before getting on the ferry first thing in the morning.
In terms of fuel, my car is a 2.3 petrol so that could add up?
Is it well signposted? Easy to drive abroad? (first time!) What about the toll costs, how much are they and are there many points on the way?
I have a tomtom so would probably just download the Europe maps for that.
I'm contemplating driving as I have a child in a wheelchair, bit worried about the cost of flying in case they want me to hire a special needs seat which seems extremely pricey (he'll be fine sitting in a normal airline seat). I've also looked at the cost of transfers from the airport and for a 3 seater wheelchair adapted transfer its over £300 - and theres 5 of us so we'd need a normal one as well :(
I have to use Thomas Cook to book, as I have some holiday vouchers but their charges seem extremely high, and they don't seem to include the free child places or other offers. I'm tempted to just book the hotel through them for this reason, then buy the tickets to the park on the day (disabled child reduction that way!)
Any help and suggestions gratefully received, still have the passports for some of us to sort out yet :\
