Found 10th Oct
Centre Parcs Villages Nature's Paris - 6km for Disneyland Paris!

I haven't looked into any travel arrangements, so this is for ACCOMMODATION ONLY. However, a friend is going to Centre Parcs Longleat this October Half Term and has paid over £1100 for accommodation alone.

For a family of four the accommodation is roughly £431 and a family of five is £526.

The dates I have used are for half term in Dorset and they may vary around the UK. I chose 4 nights, Monday to Friday from 28th May to 1st June 2018.

Seems to be various options for party sizes and I think the Centre Parcs Villages Natures Paris looks just wonderful. It's still being completed, though is mostly finished as a friend stayed recently. It looks stunning!

Thank you so much, I didn't know you could do this. We can't afford to go but thought it would make such an amazing holiday!

Thanks OP, was going to do UK center parcs again next year but now tempted by this!

IIRC this is right next door to the DLP Davey Crochet Ranch, and were building it when we stayed last year. It's an easy drive from there to Disney and SO MUCH CHEAPER. Great find op!

Or book through the French site and it is even cheaper...

I did wonder this...I noticed the US site was cheaper too....now to practice my French

Worth noting there is a local tax to pay per person can't remember how much exactly but possibly up to £100 extra for a family of four

When does this local tax come in? As in when would you pay it? Is that just if you buy from the french site?

Tax is the same regardless of which site you book from and appears on the final payment page. Have the dotcom site and the fr sites open at same time and follow through so you know which buttons to press.

Looked at booking this recently but the first reviews are poor as it's not properly finished yet, and not to a high standard! It would hopefully be ok by next year though?!

Disneyland Paris isn't a cheap break. Just a word of warning, here are a few costs having been 5 times before.

£130 in fuel and tolls (I live 140 miles from home to Dover), total of about 700 mile round trip. In reality it is closer to £300 if you factor in the real cost of driving a car at 35p-45p per mile if you own your car. Costs me about £25 extra to add european car insurance cover, but get breakdown free with my bank, otherwise its about £50 from the AA

£80 Ferry return via Calais, or £100 to use a different route avoiding Calais if you shop around. Plus £30 on food and drink on the ferry.

If you plan to arrive at centre parks for around 3pm, you'll have to leave home very early, or as I have done before book a hotel on the way there to break up the journey, another £50

Food and drink in Disney can set you back £30 each easily a day. A family of four hopper tickets for two days will cost about £500. Parking is about £14 a day.

I've priced up Centre Parcs in France before and it works out about the same as Longleaf after travel costs, and assumed we didn't leave the village for the 5 days we were there. Not to mention the journey of upto 9 hours door to door. Longleat is 90 mins away from me. If you book this deal at £431 I would add £500 for travel etc. Yes its a bit cheaper than the £1049 quote for Longleat, its a lot of travel to stay in a badly reviewed site.

Exchange rate is terrible, about 1.10 euros for a pound. It may look cheap, but when you add it all up, 5 days at CP plus two days at Disney could set you back over £1800. I've had holidays to florida for £6000 all in for 2 weeks. Flights, Villa, SUV, Disney+universal tickets, spending money. Once you've been to Florida, you won't want to go to the run down Paris Disneyland, it was a dump last time we went about 7 years ago and haven't been back.

Great to highlight additional costs etc. but you can't compare this to Centre Parcs U.K. as surely people would be interested in this because of actually going to France as well? Likewise Disney and Paris may be specific other additions to the holiday? Certainly the tolls were more than I remembered from previously as we went to Disney following a week in Brittany, so hit with them then on a 5-6 hour drive, plus on the couple of hours drive north to Calais back.

We went to Disneyland Paris this August and I was actually impressed with how it had improved compared to 10 years ago. Hyperspace mountain (now Star Wars themed) was always different, possibly better (more white knuckle) than the Florida Space Mountain (which I have been to).

However, if using this accommodation as a basis for Disney, do factor in the benefits of staying at Disney accommodation (we stayed at Davy Crockett Ranch as 6 of us) and therefore got the extra magic hours plus free parking. In fact we arrived on the Friday and got access to the parks for that day, plus Saturday and Sunday, which was our day of departure. There was also a deal at the time for free full board (all you can eat) so we didn't buy any food/drink, apart from some spare drinks and snacks/fruit from supermarket (which we had in the car with us as from Brittany for the week prior).

Before I booked I made a spreadsheet comparing the price of accommodation plus tickets plus food plus parking across different sites (Disney and non Disney, including campsites) and Davy Crockett Ranch came out similar with some of the cheaper non Disney options, but, of course, they didn't include the Extra Magic Hours (although I've heard they are reducing to an hour and even less rides available, I believe).

How can you possibly act like such an expert when you haven’t even been for 7 years! Plenty of people on here love it and people are capable to making their own judgement regarding time of travel and costs.


Anyway...Looks like a great price for a really good location. We’ll definitely have a look at it.

Having just spent 18 nights on site at Walt Disney World and being a few days away from a return to Disneyland Paris, I feel I'm in a position to comment that Disneyland Paris is certainly not a dump. It's Disneyland Park is aesthetically more pleasing than the US counterparts. The castle is phenomenal and many of the rides that are also found at Walt Disney World are far superior at the Paris park. Disney are in the process of owning the park outright pending some legal box-ticking and the improvements this year alone are significant. Our trip next week will come in at under £2,000 "all-in" for the week and buying annual passes means that a week in the school holidays next year will cost under £1,500. I can't get a half decent trip anywhere in the school holidays for 4 of us for that kind of money.

It is not Walt Disney World, but it isn't trying to be. I wouldn't want to only be restricted to one of them, as they're both thoroughly enjoyable

Places can change a lot in 7 years!! I suggest that a significant majority of the working class in the UK can't afford to spend the same cost as a used family car to go to Florida. Also, some families with small children don't want to spend 7+ hours on an aeroplane.

Disneyland Paris is convenient and provides a perfect taste of Disney for many.

So are you going then or not?

We love Disneyland Paris. Took the family for the tenth time earlier this year, and as recommended above, made the most of the Davy Crockett lodges - a nice cabin arrangement, 10 minutes from the parks, to which you get early access and free parking as you're staying in Disney accommodation.
We had a four night stay for up to six people, including Disney tickets for £450, you can't really beat that. It's a simple 3 hour drive from the Calais (toll was about 22E from memory) on very easy, and empty roads. If you possibly can then driving is the way to go IMO. Although the Eurostar goes direct from St Pancras to Disney's own station, which is very cool as long as you don't mind being on a train full of kids going to Disney.
What's more, this time around my son was taken ill earlier in the trip, and Disney were simply incredible, they upgraded our accommodation to be nearer the parking, gave the whole family a special access wheelchair pass so we could avoid the queues and gave each of our kids 25E each to spend in the store on a cuddly toy, I nearly cried at the reception desk.
DLP may not be quite the standard of Florida but it's better than most places.
The last three years have been spent upgrading the parks and they really look great at the moment. As stated, Disney have just bought the whole thing (at last) so its future is looking rosey too.
The new Villages Nature does look incredible though, and as it's a joint project between Centre Parcs and Disney (it's their land) I'm hoping in future there will be similar arrangements with them, but not at the moment.
Finally, just to remind people of the fact you can buy your disney tickets and accomodation from ANY of their sites, and sometimes save a LOAD - here's an old thread I posted about it:
hotukdeals.com/dea…415

Well weve got Disneyland Paris for 4 nights 5 days including flights and transfers and a half board plus meal plan for £1050 for a family of 4 and we can't wait to go back loved it last time

It only opened in September so a number of comments on tripadvisor about it being still being a little under finished in places. A lot of the photos on the site are Artist impressions of what it should look like once the flowers and greenery grows out in a few years. The pool area is fully open though which is the main thing for my kids.

I almost stopped reading your post when you claimed it would cost £500 to travel to Paris by car & ferry. Absolute nonsense.

With Tesco vouchers the ferry is 'free' and, from my home in Surrey, I can get to Paris and back on a tank and a half of fuel ( about £140 ).

You are also basing your DLP comments on your last trip almost 10 years ago, really? So much has been improved there not least the fact that it has rides/shows that Florida doesn't ( and possibly will never ) have

Adam you have only posted one deal on this forum, maybe you should share your magical 'fuel only cost motoring idea'.

The real cost of driving is 35p-45p per mile if you own the car, not just the fuel you stick in a car. In fact if your self-employed the government allow you to charge yourself 45p per mile for business related travel, their average break even figure.

If for example you have a company car its different, it is just the fuel that costs you as your employer will bear the costs of insurance, breakdown cover, wear and tear and the biggest cost - depreciation.

A leased car costing an average of £200 a month over 10,000 miles per year costs you 20p per mile plus fuel at 10p, plus you have to add the cost of insurance and breakdown cover, so a minimum of 35p per mile.

Tesco vouchers are not 'free', you have spent a lot of money to get the 1-2% back.

If you go to Florida, you may prefer Universal than Disney as their rides are better. Yes we last went to DLP 7 years ago, but I bet the rude Europeans are still there!!

Ridiculous attempt at justifying £500, the cost of driving there and back I saw the fuel and tolls, all other costs you factor in you have to pay anyway.

You don't pay for wear and tear and depreciation, thats stuff costs you as and when its needed and when you sell a vehicle. Wear and tear plus depreciation is the biggest cost of driving. I have 3 cars to worry about so spend a fair bit, my wife wouldn't have a clue on how much her car costs to keep on the road so see where you are coming from.

How much wear and tear is there on a round trip to Paris? Certainly not the few hundred quid you think, and again your car depreciates regardless of whether it goes on holiday or not. I don’t really see what your wife’s supposed stupidity has to do with it. I’m sure she’s well pleased you think so little of her.

The realistic cost for most people who live around London is about £50-£90 each way in fuel depending on the fuel efficiency of your car (unfortunately mines not efficient at all so will be about £220 return on fuel for me).

On top of that you have a charge of about £120 for return ferry so costs are minimum £240+ for travel unless you have about £40-£50 in clubcard vouchers you can use on eurotunnel or other ferry companies.

This doesnt factor in any addition charge for european breakdown that you may or may not have already in your breakdown policy which will be any additional £20 for new cars up to £50 or more for cars > 7 years old.

Then you may or may not want to hire bikes whilst there or the more expensive golf cart option.

I'll be on the look out for any other HUKDers whilst I'm there as we already have booked at this parc for the same week after we went to one of the other center parcs in France this year and had a great time.
