Suggestions/ advice about a trip to Eurodisney

I am in the very early stages of looking at taking a trip to Eurodisney at Easter and don't really know where to start.

It would be 4 of us, husband and me and the kids (age 6 and nearly 2). Would probably be looking to go for three nights.

Any advice about where to stay/ recommendations of what to do and what not to do very much appreciated.
I've heard the food is bad and very expensive - is that your experience?
Also, is it worth trying to see some of Paris for a day, or is that too much/ difficult transport wise. We'd go on the train.

Any advice gratefully received.

The food is expensive,but it certainly isnt bad-there is a wide range of restaurants to suit all tastes-the kids will love cafe mickey where the characters come round the tables while you are eating.

For a party of four,try to get a deal at hotel new york,if no deals for your dates try the kyriad or dream castle hotel. You can do sightseeing trips of paris with the bus leaving from outside the hotel new york every day-you get a lunchtime stop at the mall under the louvre and a boat trip on the seine and access to the eiffell tower included.Sightsseing by train/metro is perfectly easy with a travelcard but i seriously wouldnt reccomend it with a 6 and a 2 year old.

Money saving tips-fill an entire suitcase with capri suns/crisps/sweets/treats and take them with you.There is a supermarket inside the rer train station at the entrance to the park-far cheaper than inside.Also a huge supermarket at val deurope nearby.

If its your first time,do try to budget to do buffalo bills wild west show-its fantastic.

Disney paris CAN be expensive,but it can also be quite reasonable if you ask for tips in advance from people who have been,get the brits guide(great book) and if you have an iphone,get the app-its excellent.

Wow, lots of fantastic tips, thanks so much. I'll get the app and have a good look. We are planning to go beginning of april. Was looking at new york only because a friend went there so that was a good place to start. The deals always seem to be the same (e.g kids free under 12) but are there other deals for certain dates as we can be flexible on when we go. Where would I look to find that out do you know?

We are looking at going too and the price diffrence between going in the school holidays and the week before is £200 . My kids are the same age and stay free if you book before jan 31 and go before beggining of april but thats under 12 s when this offer finishes it changes to under 7 s . Book the park online but not the train book that with eurustar direct its a lot cheaper we were qouted 380 for hotel including park tickets snd breakfast and then i got tickets with eurostar for 129 return for all of us, hope this helps. .

http://www.disneyland.co.uk all the deals are on there-I can highly reccommend the new york if its within your budget-the breakfast is UNBELIEVABLE and there are characters wandering round the hotel all the time-it just makes it so special for the kids-the best deal all depends on the size of your party-4 is fine for the new york-there is a mcdonalds in the disney village so you can eat cheap one day if you want to.

Another quick tip(mainly for your 6 year old)-the kids love to do the pin badge swapping-they get a lanyard for the badges,all disney staff members will swap them a badge as long as they are offered one they dont already have-buy a few badges from a british disney store before you go so they get better swaps as these badges are not available in france-when we come home the kids take their badges off the lanyards and display them on cork boards in the house-makes a great souvenier. There are swap days every day of the week and the guy who runs the pin badge swaps(he is called patrice) stands with his swap board every day at 2pm at gepettos gift shop. If you go the first week of april the queues are very small.

We went last Easter staying in the new York hotel. Also upgraded to half board which meant we had lunch with the characters in cafe mickey, night at buffalo bills wild west show and lunch with the princesses. My 5 year old loved it.

Take walkie talkies we went with my sister and her family they were brilliant if you get split up or little ones need the loo or you get lost etc saves using expensive mobiles!! And definitely stock up on drinks from the supermarket and take with you saves a lot of money, one last thing you MUST eat in the Rainforest Cafe it is Amazing the kids will love it so will you!! but book before you go then you don't have to queue for ages you can go straight in.
Have fun we loved it would go back like a shot! x

get the kids autograph books aswell, mine loved getting signatures of characters..

Stayed in the Sequia Lodge when we went, would recommend it. Very close to the park. Agree with the comments that food is expensive. As suggested take snacks in suitcases! We found the mcdonalds just outside the park the most reasonable place for a snack and better food quality than mcdonalds here. Have fun!

we went two years ago and loved it, going back next week cant wait! - for some great deals we booked with these : http://www.short-breaks.com/
Have a great time! best tip we got was to buy drinks and snacks from the eurostar station, much cheaper than in the park. Oh and take your own kettle for in your room or youll have to pay to borrow one.Have a great time!
