Disneyland Paris - Book via France Just saved over £700!!

Found 8th Feb 2015
Amazing!! Just booked 4 nights / 5 days at Newport Bay for £1942 for 4 people including Eurostar via French versions of official sites for Disneyland Paris and Eurostar. UK quote was £2665, meaning I have saved over £700!!! Uk quote even included 1 day/ night free as part of promotion ending tomorrow. French site is doing 25% -35% off (we got 25%)

Disneyland Paris - must be booked on the phone - you need to ask for International Reservations when ringing through and you'll get an English speaking operative. If using Eurostar you can include Disney Express baggage service as part of the reservation - ours was €68

Eurostar can be booked online but it's in French - use Google Chrome and it will translate for you

Great saving will cover our spending money for the trip

Stayed at that hotel
It's really nice speacially when you walk thro the village everytime to get to the parks

I have noticed that going through French and German web sites are cheaper for many things, like ferry... Ripping off the British with higher prices is a religious fundamental. Pay with credit cards that don't charge for currency conversion fees like one from Nationwide , Santander Zero..

Currently a pound is buying £1.34 euros, It's possible that £ may be worth even more if the Greece situation gets worse, so worth keeping an eye on these prices.

I've done the same, saved £500 compared with the UK site so it paid for our meal plan. The French offer includes children under 12 for free, the UK is only free for under 7's. Mine are all over 7 so I think that and the great euro rate mase it a cracking deal. I used my Nationwide debit card (2% fee) as I don't have a credit card (& didn't want to wait for one) you can check how much it will cost with up to date exchange rate calculator on the visaeurope website. It also calculated the fee &was spot on!

Agree - I did also look at the German site - they include the HB meal plan then take 20% off the total. Not for us but might be useful for those wanting HB?

you can use halifax clarity and its fee free (i had the nationwide til they started charging!)

if you can go out of school hols some silly prices!

Not a deal for us I'm afraid. we've booked 4 nights at the magic circus hotel and we're getting annual passes for just over £800. Combine that with Eurotunnel (tesco vouchers) and driving and it's about £900. That's at Easter with 4 of us, 2 older kids. The next time we go in the summer it will be £400.

Good price but I guess not a direct comparison. The annual pass is great if you are going more than once a year, and Tesco Clubcard is great for Eurostar (wish I'd realised that was an option!!) but for us the convenience of being on-site - so able to walk to Disney, the Extra magic Hours, Disney Express etc. makes it a different proposition.

Did you book the Magic Circus hotel direct so benefitting from the weak Euro at present?

Interesting that people are still keen on spending £1942 with all the doom and gloom in the economy.
Still a bit too expensive for me

Magic Circus is better than all the Disney Hotels except New York & DLH. You may be able to walk to the parks but it'll take at least 20 minutes from NPB.

Magic hours are available to annual pass holders so you dont lose out on that either.

Don't you know that this economic situation is best for rich to get richer?

I meant much bigger reductions than currency fluctuation which is in the order of 5 to 10%, typically bought things were at least 15% and 25% price differences e.g. Samsung1TB SSD bought £80 cheaper than UK price out of £300, ferry crossing 15% less, also pricing of hotel rooms is price per room, British radicalised greedy managers price it per person, so each person price looks much more affordable, rules about charging for children or single person supplement mean saving when booking abroad directly rather than through British run companies. British radicalised behaviour means a lot more things are fair games for chargeable extras which other countries would not accept because of their culture. e.g. Wonga, credit card charges are another area which on the continent deem as immoral and radicalised business practices banned.

Not bad, but its France not Florida.

Thank you for making that aware to many of us. Personally, we as a family, cannot afford the price to holiday in Florida.

still a stupid price - £100 per person per day?? that's not a deal

Its only doom and gloom if you believe the naysayers. Personally I'm self employed and am as busy now as I was pre 2007 so for me the economy is is going the right way.

If I get there and the mouse is talking with a French accent rather than an American one, I'm coming straight back.

I booked on Saturday for 4nights/5days for December ! return flights Manchester to Paris. Hotel Cheyenne bed and breakfast. and park tickets. For £698. ( a lot cheaper than what your paying ) no offence a better bargain in my eyes. That was for 2 adults and 2 Children ! I would rather stay in a 2* resort and save myself £1200!

UK price is £135 PPPN so for us it's a deal!! It's where we wanted to go, and we got a better price than in the UK

Horses for courses - a £100,000 Bentley is not a deal compared to a Kia, but if someone wants a Bentley and can get it for £90,000 surely thats a deal?

Last year I booked park tickets on a french ticket site much cheaper than buying on any UK site, got 2 days for price of 1, second day had a 2 month expiry date. Used one day as that is all we wanted, came home and sold second day on eBay. Our day at Disney cost us a £5 :-)

Only 5 days (4 nights) for £1942 for Disney's poor-relation?! seems expensive to me for what you're getting...oO

This works out roughly the same per day for what we are paying to stay in Walt Disney Caribbean Beach Resort in Florida in the summer holidays (family of 4 including dining plan, Ultimate Park tickets, fully insured 7-seater SUV, flying with Virgin from LHR).

Should have saved a bit more and gone to Florida disney, unless you like the arrogant rude french

Any similar savings to be had against disneyworld in florida?

Sounds great. could you kindly give a bit more info please. thanks

Sorry never post this sort of comment on a hot deal but have people seen the headline title and voted this hot, 4 nights in France for 2 grand this is why I wouldn't holiday in Europe.

Sounds a good deal especially for the Christmas period. For us the Cheyenne over the same period in June would cost EUR1304 (£970) vs EUR £1752 (£1300) for NPB so a £300 saving on like for like.

hunny- would be going from Manchester in December who do u book with and did u book hotel via for French site? I know I've used the Irish site in the past to book the Sequoia lodge and looking to stay in that hotel again.

Wondering when someone from the Little Englander brigade would spout up and trot that hoary old cliche out..... we've never found the staff at Paris to be arrogant in any way...and in case you weren't aware... the characters DON'T speak...

I know what you mean elsick... £2K is a lot of money for 4 nights, but it's Disney and that's never cheap. You can certainly use much cheaper hotels etc. Never mind the money, it's the thought of 4 people sharing one bedroom that would do my head in.

Again, though... no one is being forced to go, but it's always helpful if HUKD'ers come on here and show ways of cutting the costs, so HEAT to the OP.

I booked flights direct with air France. I then booked the hotel ect with magic breaks. Staying in the hotel Cheyenne. Flying out on December 6th - December 10th.

Thanks for that! that was my exact reason for posting - just trying to help others that may also be considering going to Disneyland Paris - Appreciate holidays to France that DON'T include Disneyland Paris will be cheaper but that's not really the point!! If a HUKD member was thinking about a holiday to Disneyland Paris this may save them some £'s - that's all I was trying to do

I'm happy with my booking

When are you going OP? i got back 2 weeks ago from taking the Mrs for her Birthday, and the Newport Bay Club is surrounded by scaffolding and having renovation work. I originally booked for Newport Bay Club, and when i found out they are having renovation work done, but not telling customers, i rang and went berserk and got a free upgrade to Disney Hotel New York. Worth a try for you OP depending when you are going.

Thanks - was aware of the renovation works, and have been warned, although hadn't appreciated it maybe scaffolded!! Going late June - hopefully much of the work will be complete as it is high season then?? Have done DLH, HNY and SL previoulsy so wanted to try NPB this time - took a gamble on this one.

Did also find out Space Mountain is shut for all of 2015 while it is refitted which is a pain but one of those things I guess!

What did you think to the Disney Hotel itself? Looked great from the outside and would be nice to hear from someone who has actually been and their opinion. Is it worth the money? I loved Hotel New York. Disney staff in general are all VERY polite and seem to be very eager to help (apart from the security guys - they look at you like Clint Eastwood in a shootout just waiting for a reason to cavity search you but we went the week of the Paris attacks so can appreciate the security concerns)
Was a bit of a negative with Space Mountain being closed. That whole area is closed. As is the ride behind the Alice in Wonderland maze. But having never been before, we had 5 days of pure fun and excitement with no complaints and the Mrs loved it. Did the Ratatouille/Remy ride 4 times. Loved that one in particular lol

They're not spending their own money

Not a great deal in my eyes. All year round it pays to look at the French/German/Dutch sites, etc and ofc keep an eye out for flash sales.

It also pays to book in advance for Disney and you can change to a better deal for free. Although if you book through a French deal, you can only change to a French deal.

Eurostar is a rip off through Disney, whatever site. Either use clubcard or book as tickets come out for as little as £69. You have to be quick for these though.

I drive and it is cheap as chips and easier. You get 6 full days, if you stop off, leave when you want....Just to give you an idea...at EASTER (so big school holiday) for SIX people, (3a 3c) we paid £1100. That included photopass and half board PLUS for 4n 5days. Tunnel via clubcard. That's not in the budget hotels either....it is SQL. Same key rating as this. This was a similar price too.

We looked at this hotel but reviews tell me the refurb will take a year...so wasn't keen myself.

As long as your happy that's what counts...I agree with the theme of the deal, but better can be had if you bide your time.
