Disneyland Paris day trip from £9.50 per family of 4, starting from Saturday 17th November 2012 in the Sun newspaper - must collect 10 tokens, includes return ferry!

Back again for the 3rd year running - £9.50 day trips per family of 4 to Disneyland Paris. Booking opens tomorrow (14/11/12) on disneysundeals.co.uk which means you can reserve dates and then you have to send them the 10 tokens to confirm the booking. Tokens come out in the Sun this Saturday (17/11/12) and will run everyday, I am not sure on how long but last year it was about 18 days of which you only needed 10 tokens.

This deal also includes a return ferry from Dover and the ticket offer is for a family of four consisting of 2 adults and 2 children, or 1 adult and 3 children. The tickets are for 1 day/2 parks (normal value around £60 per person!!)

From what I remember from last year is the price starts at £9.50 and went up depending on Ferry times. The maximum I saw was £19 for the best Ferry times on that day but they could be different.

I went last year on this deal and booked a hotel and eurostar separate because it worked out so cheap, (Eurostar doing £69 return deals and hotels are cheap if you book using trivago, I stayed in Magic Circus which was great). We did the Eurostar to Disney via Lille, this is much easier than paris as Lille station is tiny and you literally just change platform to another high speed TGV train, it is also quicker than doing the Paris change route.

Hopefully I have shared all I know, more info will be on the site from tomorrow so we should all know more then.

Enjoy!

Oh that looks good, I've never been to Disneyland before :-)
That sounds great! I don't suppose you remember how far in advance you could book for do you?

From what I remember, its valid from the start January until the end of March and you can book from tomorrow up until the last week of December.
What's the usual daily entry rate? Any way you can suss this for two days park entry?
HOT............
so with it being a day trip do you have to return on the ferry the same day to qualify?
super !
Great post.

Thanks for all the helpful information.

About £50 per person for one day, they knock about £3 off for kids max.
We went in June and the park was great (albeit expensive, which one expects!). The hotel (Santa Fe) on the other hand reflected a building site when we arrived, with scaffolding covering large expanses of the hotel buildings. Fire extinguishers were being used to prop up doors and there was no fire safety advice notices anywhere to be seen.... it was quite shocking and left a very poor impression. I would take the advice of others and book a hotel outside of the park perimeter (like Magic Circus mentioned above) if you want accoodation, or even in Paris and use the train service which takes you straight to the park.

Good deal, although we won't be going back there again any time soon.

ditto - and is the ferry for car or foot passengers only?
Gormless Sun readers + Grumpy costumed frenchies = potential international incident!!
Can't accept a French Donald Duck
I wouldn't go to eurodisney if you paid me as it is a shockingly bad copy of the American version with unfriendly french staff.

Going to stay at beach club next year in Walt Disney world, now that is luxury.
thanks op
Went 2 years ago (eurostar and disney hotel) with 5 and 7 year old and they still talk about it today. Not sure I understand the "bad copy of american version" as thats the whole point to replicate whats otherwise a 10 hour flight away. The smaller size does allow you to do most of the 2 parks in a day.

Could someone please confirm that you can the Disney tickets without using the ferry?

Thank you.
Save the pennies and go to the real thing.
Went once to here, never again. Such rude staff.

Agreed. Better to compare it to UK theme parks, in which case Disneyland Paris wins easily.
opens at 9am tomorrow and I start at 9am! bet nothing left for dates we'd want by the time we get home
Been quite a few times and swore the last time we wont go back. If you've been to the Orlando or Anaheim parks you'll be massively disappointed, if you haven't then it'll give you the wrong impression of a Disney park.
Its excruciatingly expensive to eat & drink there (not helped by the currency, we ate at Plaza Gardens buffet 27.99 euro each! it was cold, stale & dry, we complained and the staff pretended they couldnt speak English). The French cast members are ignorant, unhelpful and in some cases nasty. If you're a non smoker then you'll find it irritating that there's "Designated Smoking Areas" which are completely ignored and the designated area becomes the whole park and nobody does anything about it. Groups of kids tend to queue jump and again nobody does anything about it, quite a few of the rides are narrated in French which might confuse the younger generation.

is there anyway of extending this beyond a day trip do you know? I recall someone saying last year you could do 2 nights.....

do we know if there are any exclusions re dates ie: school holidays in Feb?
Am I right in thinking the 10 tokens just get you the return ferry and entry to the park? And in addition to that, you have to get the train from Calais to Paris? Does anyone know if the ferry has to be on the same day? Thanks.
Had my eye on this. Thanks for the useful detail - in particular about changing at Lille station.
very informative post, thank you.
do i have to have kids to go?!
To offer an alternative viewpoint we have been to WDW a few times but this year had a short break at DLP and loved it

Disneyland Park itself is a lovely park and the castle and surrounding area is even nicer than the magic kingdom, the magic isn't quite there as much but for what it is its well worth a visit. Also Dreams is fantastic but is only for this year

Can't wait to to back to Florida but we have a one year old and DLP is a great alternative to avoid a 9 hour flight
Park is fantastic great for young and old alike however the rooms in the Sante Fe hotel are grim and not you would expect from Disney. The restaurant was just as bad, either they used their Disney magic to create a authentic rustic Mexican theme or they just had really big greasy cockroaches scuttling around the bread roll area! :-x
Just read this on the sun facebook page: A £25 deposit will be required per person for all self drive deals with the exception of the day trips, which require full amount at time of booking.
Cheers
good deal a bit much for a day imo . great park if youve never been its definaley worth a trip ( but if youve been to wdw i wouldnt bother , save up and go back )
Hi does anyone know whether it would be possible to save 20 tokens and get the ferry on a Monday (for example) pay for a hotel that night and then have a second day at disney on the tues and then get the ferry home?
This is a good deal with the 20th anniversary stuff going on at the mo especially disney dreams in the evening x
Although I have never been to America Disney I have been here (Paris) a few times. I have 3 kids and they loved it - me it was OK. In the nature of all theme parks they are all overpriced and expect to que for a while especially on weekends. However it is a very cheap way to get your kids to experience a slice of Disney magic. Yes its not so good for adults ( although its not that bad) but the children love it. You have a car - fill it up with sarnies and a picnic and rolls and off you go. It is as expensive as you make it. I had an annual pass and a motorhome so I parked for free. Disney America without a doubt will be absolutely fantastic however as its £4K plus to go for a family of 5 Disneyland Paris looks great for me and this offer is a great find for the price - however will have to read small print to see if its manageable without killing myself traveling such a long way on my own with the kids. Good find OP in my opinion. I shall buy the paper just to see. xx
When with this deal last year and had a great time. As op says, £9.50 got 4 of us entry and the ferry crossing. We upgraded to stay at davey crockets ranch the night before (posh static caravans) and hit Disney the next day. With upgrades, fuel, toll charges probably cost £300 in total. Will be loads of options for upgrades etc on the site. If I went again I'd stay at a holiday inn or other generic hotel rather than the expensive Disney hotels.
I took my kids to Eurodisney 5 years ago and loved it. We had two days at the parks and had a great time. Water fountains all over the parks and we took our own food into the park. We stayed at the Best Western hotel in Busy St George which is just a couple of stops outside Eurodisney or we could have taken the bus. Great transport and still runs late to accommodate those staying to watch the fireworks. Have to agree with the advice about Lille station but it does have a huge shopping area if you have the time to visit.

I found the staff friendly in the park. We had fun getting the autographs for my daughter of the different characters.
Check opening hours before you book as obviously the dark nighst the park will close earlier than in the summer.
