This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

EDIT: A mod seems to have updated the title to specific dates/prices. To be clear, this deal isn't about the particular dates / particular prices listed in the title, more the process of getting Disneyland Paris much cheaper by booking through the French site rather than the UK site. So to be clear:

- is Disneyland cheap in school holidays (or any other time for that matter)? Depends on what you're comparing it to but if you can find a like for like cheaper then help the community and post details. Otherwise saying "its expensive" isn't too helpful.
- is Disneyland Paris rubbish? I can't say as i've never been. Again not really the point, if you're thinking of going then this is a way to save hundreds of pounds, regardless of what others think of the place.


As requested on another thread, here's the deal.

Over the years there's been a few deals where if you book on another countries site you could get a product cheaper than 'rip-off Britain' prices. I'm aware of the Netflix deal, i've booked UK to Vegas flights on the Aus Expedia site myself in the past, and EuroCamp / Centre Parks might also be similar to name but a few.

So I thought i'd try the French site to price up Disneyland Paris and what d'ya know, seems to offer big savings. Here's how to get it:

1. Open two tabs in Chrome (or other Browser) and open up the UK (English language) Disneyland Paris website in them both.
2. In one of the tabs look in the top right hand corner for the little British flag, click that and change to the French site.
3. Now price up the dates you need in both Windows - if you understand French then you don't need the tab with the UK site, but Google translate doesn't seem to work on their webpage so if you don't understand French then having the tab with the English version opens means you know what the question is asking. The websites are identical except for the language.
4. At the end of all of that, click submit and see what prices come up for each option. It always seems to be cheaper on the French site but I have noticed that the UK site does throw in some freebies that the French site doesn't, so that MIGHT justify the additional price, make your own mind up.

Example:
I just priced up a family of four (2A,2C) for Easter Holidays (25/05/20 to 29/05/20) so Monday to Friday and it came up as:

Sequoia Lodge:
UK Site - £2709.61
French site - €2332,54 (about £1972)
A saving of £737

Disneyland Hotel:
UK Site - £4114.11
French Site - €2249.80 (about £1903.08)
A saving of £2,211 ALTHOUGH the UK site does include "Free full board worth £1,559.20)


Other things to bear in mind:
1. I've not gone through to book it so in theory on the French site they could block you from booking from a UK address, but I can't see it myself.
2. You'll probably have to pay in Euros on the French site (or maybe it asks you at the point of payment, again I don't know) so check any card fees for paying in a foreign currency if you go for it.
3. Just to repeat above, the UK site does throw in some freebies (free breakfast, free half board etc) that the French site doesn't, so bear that in mind and make your own decision on whether you prefer the freebie or the saving. The Sequoia Lodge example above doesn't have any offers so is a complete like-for-like.
4. Also try other international sites which may have other prices / offers (Thanks to RogerPJK for the tip)

Might work for some, might not work for others. Its still bloody expensive but if you're thinking of booking then better to get what you want as cheap as possible. Hope it helps someone. Happy to help if anyone gets stuck.

Also try the Irish and German sites as they often include different prices and freebies.
Great tip OP! Anyone know of any other websites this type of method could work for?

Cheers, have added a note to the deal
I’ve booked via the French site in the past and saved a fortune

That’s some mad prices for the worst Disney in the world. I haven’t been the Shanghai one yet but I doubt it’s worse than Paris.
Those prices... I paid under £95 pp for annual tickets around 3 years ago, b&b £180 for 3 nights with breakfast, 3 miles from the site. And felt it was a rip off haha make sure you'll take rain ponchos as they charged 10 euros at the time.

I've booked using the German site before and saved a lot. These prices don't seem particularly cheap though, we paid under £800 half board for 3 days, 2 nights (2a,2c).
i found it expensive few days in paris disney,last year we went to orlando instead and for two weeks costed us much less with free food included.
This is expensive

Was that price in school holidays?

Regardless, the general point of the deal here which a lot seem to be missing is; regardless of whether you think Disneyland is good or bad, and regardless of whether you think its expensive or not, is to price it up on the international sites if you're thinking of going and make sure you get the best deal you can.

The same applies if you're looking at Disneyland Florida, the same applies if you're looking at flights to Australia, or a Netflix subscription....

best holidays ever, best to book it when they do the offer with free meals,we went to moderate hotel with free quick paid extra to upgrade for table service ,it was a lot as got one quick service one table service and two snacks per person per day ,lovely experience ,and you can use table service credits for character meals also. total for two weeks 2 adults and one toddler with flights and upgraded meals was less than £4.5k ,this year we are going california disney but they don't do any offers unfortunately .So i think arounf april they start the offers for following year free meals and free $200 gift card ,and actually i was looking afterwards and the meals are free ,as the prices for hotels don't change :-)

As the comparison is inevitable...

2 week park tickets in Florida for only Disney are £1608, Virgin Atlantic Flights LHR to MCO 4th April to 18th April are £657, Cheapest Hotel is £475 (£600 gets a choice of likely better hotels).

Total : £2740

Disneyland Paris in my opinion is very good, despite the "once you've been to the real Disneyland" mob letting us all know they've been to America. For another option, it's worth looking at holiday/campsites within an hour or so of Disneyland (there's some really good ones), and going for a week or fortnight in the summer, and picking up some cheap "3 days for the price of 2" or some other offer, and making it worth traveling to France. The site we stopped at was excellent, and ran a bus to Disneyland, although it was only an hour in the car, so we drove. The food is well overpriced, as you'd expect. Checking the various European sites is a great idea though, if you're wanting to stop in one of the Disney hotels.

At least do a fair comparison of same dates, not school holidays v non-school holidays...

I think going on the coach can offer fantastic savings on the trip to Disneyland Paris if you don’t mind the journey.

Often the are very reasonably priced, many stay on site in the Disney hotels and you aren’t restricted the same with luggage so you can fill your suitcase with snacks and drinks.

They often go in half term as well.

I went with Gold Crest the last time it went and was very happy.

what’s the maths behind this. Is this meant to be for 2 adults and 2 kids. If so would love to see the 4 return flights for £657?

Good spot. Clearly got his sums wrong. Should be £657 per person. So even in this comparison of a completely different product its £4,711

Got to love this place. £700 / 33% saving, not one person is able to post a cheaper option, and its 33 degrees. Wish i'd not wasted the time pulling it together and posting it now.

Don’t take it personally (I voted hot btw), I think that people are voting on DLP itself rather than the deal. My daughter went there recently with her boyfriend and they loved it, but other people I know said that it’s awful (they had stuff stolen so that made them miserable!)

The attractions are next level. They make magic kingdom look like a tired, battered old amusement park.
Also worth going into Shanghai and up the oriental Pearl. Amazing city

Yes it was during the Easter holidays. It was 2 years ago though when the euro exchange rate was much better.

I totally agree with your main point.....check the international sites for potentially a much better deal.

Please don't feel like that, you haven't wasted your time the information is out there to help others save.

Sadly when deals don't go hot they don't get the same exposure but people searching and who have keywords alerts Disneyland Paris will see this.

Another possibility is that a lot of members will be already familiar with using the French site

Some good deals don't go hot and so poor deals get a surprising amount of heat.

Thanks for sharing this
Booked via French site about 4 years ago for Christmas, saved about £800 on the uk price. Everything was in French but not overly an issue. Couple of things I would recommend:

* get direct train if travelling with little ones, wasn’t much notice on transfer train at CDG, so was a bit of a mad dash to the platform.

* baggage drop off is great, saved walking to the hotel and back when we got there and bags waiting at the station when you leave. So more park time.

* loot the buffet breakfast, take it in the park for lunches and save paying Disney prices.
I've been to Florida and Paris Disney, other than the weather they are both the same.
We've stayed in the partner hotels just outside (still got free shuttle buses) and one year it cost us about a grand for bed and breakfast, euro tunnel tickets and 4 annual passes.

The next year it didn't cost us for park tickets, as we went just inside the year, so was about £400 for hotel and euro tunnel tickets.

Both were 4 nights 5 days.

Politics aside about which Disney resort in the world is better value for money to visit and looking at the deal in front of me, £70 difference to stay in Disneyland Hotel (Best hotel on site, special entrance into the park, amazing views of fireworks and the castle from inside the hotel) Vs Sequoia Lodge (Nearly a half mile walk away through the shopping district) and this deal isn't hot!?

I realise you still need to add transport to the deal but this website kills me sometimes.

I'll probably take flack for pointing this out but as it's directly through Disney, if you have an annual pass you can save a bit extra on top of this as well
My quote for mid August comes in at €914 2a 3c 3night/ 4days same details on uk site come back at £1516 almost half the price ( uk has free half board) but what a saving

Is that the price for one person?
With the free half board are you able to use this within the park or just at your hotel. I'm looking at booking Davy Crockett as it's a bit more affordable and includes some family space.
Also would people recommend the fast pass and are there any deals to be had on these?

Free Disney Dining is a misnomer as for anything but Quick Service dining you are expected to a provide a tip. A tip at one of the fancier restaurants would be the price I'd pay for the meal outside Disney!

Yes I guess if you are on holidays and eating in McDonald’s you are right there, but being on holidays and having one quick meal one seat down meal and both with drink plus if paying that amount of money extra £500 just for the tips it’s worth it,That’s America unfortunately we do top up their wages lol as employers pay too little and others are expected to top up their hourly rate ( that’s not fair on anyone I must say :()

I beg to differ. Paris has 2 Disney parks, Orlando has 4 Disney theme parks, 2 water parks and a huge shopping and dining area at Disney Springs and covers an area the size of Greater Manchester.
