Saw this on MSE and am curious why it asn't been posted on here yet. A day trip to Disneyland Paris for 2 adults and 2 children, during half term including ferry and passes for £80 (£70 out of half term). It would mean a long day as it's a 3.5 hr journey from Calais to Paris but for that price I think it's worth it. Or you can have a one night accomodation included for £219 total (£199 in term time).
Book before Mon 21 Dec '09 for trips between Tues 5 Jan Weds 31 Mar 2010 inclusive. Dates excluded are:

Fri 12, Sat 13, Sat 20 and Sun 21 Feb
Fri 26 and Sat 27 Mar
Car parking at Disneyland Paris isn't included (around 10 per day), and there's a maximum car occupancy of nine people.

Disney has confirmed that you can also bring your own food and drinks into the park with you (excludes alcohol), so you can save cash by stocking up on snacks before you go.

Hope I've included everything lol

I was just about to book this then read the bumph and according to disney you have to be 11 or under to be classified as a child, so alas no good for me as we have a 14 year old.

Thanks for this, might make a nice little xmas present :thumbsup:

Once your in France, the drive is very very easy. pop cruise control on and not see another car for ages.

Brilliant roads, there in under 3 hours.

You will pay a toll of about €20 each way.

Tell your Husband you could always fly....For about another £300!

Funny enough did look at that...but couldn't find where it would let us go from Stansted to Paris:?

Not that I'd pay an extra £300 tho :lol:

Ha :-D Can you imagine what sort of time you would have to get up to get there at a decent time?!

Why didnt they build the EuroDisney in the UK. I mean whos ever heard of a French speaking Mickey Mouse.

Nice deal.
I wouldnt consider it with small children though to be honest.
Drive to Ferry...check in....ferry trip...3-3.5 hour drive.....all before the day even begins and the same in reverse with tired and grumpy children? That is no way to do Disney!
If you have little ones I would say the only way to use this deal would be with an overnight stay or 2.

I agree with you there, but if u can't afford to pay hundreds of pounds then I think this could be managed....kids would be asleep most of the journey and I know it's not Ideal....but it's £80!! :-D

At first glance on MSE, I thought, "wow!", but then considered the practicalities. We're about 3 hours from Dover, so it would take...what?.... 8 hours or so including waiting for the ferry? Hmm.... So perhaps a 2am start and not getting home until after midnight the following night.

Thinking back to how tired our kids were after a day trip to Legoland (which is less than 2h away), I quickly went off the idea.

I guess you could make it slightly easier by staying the previous night in the Dover area, but that 80 quid rapidly ramps up.

E.

Considering i live in Edinburgh I think this is out the window :lol:

If you have the kinda kids that sleep in the car then that's half the battle. The other factor is how far/close you are to the port in the UK.

When we went by ferry we had a 4 year old and an 18 month old and the ferry trip was a nightmare. It was over crowded and it rained so we were couped up in their 'kids room' which was basically a cramped space with one of those bead game tables you get in the Doctor's waiting room! They were climbing the walls by the end of the trip and we thought the ferry would be the best bit for them!

Disney is supposed to be easy to find, and we thought we's be set with our RAC directions all printed off. However we managed to get quite spectacularly lost when we went. I think it only added about half an hour to the journey, but we just couldnt seem to get off at the right exit!

Yes and dont forget to add the toll charges and then the petrol, and the wonderfull way the Operators of the park behave. Hearing A park employeee shout 'meird' (might not be correct spelling) seeing how they failed to smile at all when i was there and i fail to see too much value - maybe i was unlucky though. Think ill save for disney -anywhere else.:;-)

Why do people post if this deal isnt suitable for them?? Clearly, if you live far from Dover, its not for you! It would be like teetotalers saying they dont drink of wine deals, or veggies on deals for meat! I dont have a wife or kids, but this is a good deal if I did! But yeah, I would MUCH rather go to the Florida Disney!! A class of its own in terms of customer service, quality staff, total experience...oh, and weather Let me know any deals that come along for THAT one.

Oh, and voted hot

Quite tempted, but it would mean about 14 hours travelling in a day! A great deal for people who don't need sleep.

i will heat this as its a good deal for some people...

wouldnt do it to my kids tho.

Yes I do think there is a lot to weigh up....depends on how much ur kids wanna go and wether u can afford to pay hundreds istead:thumbsup:

'Day trip' - that's ridiculous, even if you live in Dover!

Besides, even if you get very lucky with the weather the Disney organisation can't teach the French the meaning of customer service.

Save up and do it properly in Florida or California.

Do you get paper tickets? Could I buy this, sell the two child tickets and just use the two adult tickets. Cause if so, that'd be pretty great.

I understand that Florida is MUCH better than Paris.....but THIS deal is for Paris and it's the cheapest around....so surely that shold be what ur voting on:?

haha My post is about the comments, and not about the deal! And I was actually being positive, and thankful because the deal is a good one, not negative because its not suitable for me...and there is SOOOOOOO much whinging on this website, it actually amuses me!

Oh damn....and now I just had a whinge......

:whistling:

THIS IS A COMPLETE CON - the idea is to attract attention, then when you realise that you will have next to no time at the resort with the 8 hr journey there and 8 hrs back, they expect you to book the higher price deal.

Don't fall for it

I recently went with my 6 year old son for 6 nights (on the buy 4 get 2 free thing) and while 6 nights was too long (by about 3 nights) there is no way in the world you could do it all in a day, particularly in half term, we went (flew from glasgow) tuesday - monday and the weekend was at least 3 times as busy, so I imagine half term would be similar ..... so on that basis its a cold from me, sorry!

yeh eurostar is best

They were going to build it in cornwall originally but the english heritage said it would ruin the land Scape and so they went to europe

We went to disney in July with my four year old, we drove from Manchester to Folkestone, stayed overnight in a hotel folkestone, and then left early the next morning to go by eurotunnel to Calais and then drive onto Disney. Luckily we were staying there for 2 nights because the journey is a killer! The french motorways were fantastic (no middle lane hoggers-woohoo!!) and it was a straight run all the way there, if you follow the signs you don't get lost, we had a couple of toilet stops but otherwise was a straight run which took 4hours. The problem is that once you get to disney there is so much to see and do you spend much of your time being dragged at break neck speed around every attraction by a small child who refuses to be worn out because its all so exciting (though think we were just as excited!)!! I know that I it would have been impossible for anyone to safely make the 4 hour journey back on the same day. Also tbh there is not that much saving on this offer, by the time you have paid for all the safety gear you need for the car to drive in france, the petrol, the £25 in motorway tolls there and back (so total £50 tolls), plus european breakdown cover, its just not worth it!

oh and someone said disney let you take food in...they don't!!! People staying in disney hotels don't have bags checked properley at security tents and they turn a blind eye if you take food into the park, but people coming in for a day trip were having food taken off them by security, they were protesting, some showed proof in writing that they could bring it in, but they were still being refused admission till they binned the food, so beware!!

We went in the first week of the 6 weeks hols and got two nights B&B in a disney hotel for all 3 of us for £259 through thomsons, I got the eurotunnel with tesco points but next time it would just be cheaper and easier for us to pay for the eurostar. Disney is fantastic (and my son keeps telling me if I'm a good girl he'll take me back there for my 30th birthday!) but this is def not the best deal to be had for it, sorry.

I went there and back in a day when I was based in Canterbury. Tempted by this as I may go stop with some friends down that way the night before. Can't knock the price. TBH I didn't find it great but my youngest daughter is now old enough to want to go.

voted hot. Its £70! Yeah i understand its a long journey, moan moan moan, but some of us cant afford to spend hundreds of pounds taking the kids to disney. I live in Folkestone so gonna snap this up, and have to put up with the kids moaning for a bit in the car:):):)
thanks

I think the point being made is that it's actually nowhere NEAR £70 for this deal in reality.

Deal = £70
Toll fees = £50
Safety equipment to driver in France = £15 ish
Petrol = £70 ish depending where you're travelling from originally..........

Were over £200 without spending money for food/drink/merchandise etc

For a day trip that includes 8 - 10 hours travelling, this is nowhere CLOSE to being a Hot deal, sorry!

we're already booked to fly to Paris in Feb so with this deal we can just use the park tickets & bin the ferry tickets. Still much cheaper than buying 4 park tickets.

Agreed. If it was free I'd be very wary of the amount of travelling, as its over £200 I'm gonna pass. Go to Alton Towers, Drayton Manor or Legoland instead :thumbsup:
