Explorers Hotel Disneyland Paris £405 for 4 nights 11th - 15th August 2014 (Based on 2 Adults & 2 Kids) HOTEL ONLY

Found 16th Jan 2014
Did a fair bit of shopping around for this but found the best deal to be on the Hotels own website.
Second Best Price was ebookers at £457.52

Ebookers includes cancellation so still a pretty good price but this deal doesn't however, I'm not expecting to have to cancel and am prepared to take that risk at this price.

On the DL website, booking this same hotel as a package with tickets would cost £1561.

Ticket price for 4 days (currently for the price of 3) is £528

Therefore total cost is £932.89 which is a saving over the disney site of £628.11.

I doubt even booking in French could beat that

Could have stayed in a cheaper hotel I know but this had everything we wanted for the kids and also included breakfast, free parking and free shuttle to the parks.

Great hotel, stayed there for £55 a night off peak (Feb) last year and the kids didn't want to go to the Park!

Excellent find...heat added

Did you even bother reading the post? Or just the title?!

Sorry if i sound dumb but is this deal for flights hotel and tickets to disney land?

This will more than likely to be for hotel only. It's cheaper to buy annual passes than 3/4 days. I got annual passes for me+ child for just under €200. Whereas was costing me nearly £350 for 4 day pass.

On the ticket front, you may want to check out Paris-Billets.com as they do some very good deals on tickets. At the moment you can get an adult and child (under 12) annual pass for between approx £130-£160 depending on which level you choose. The benefit of this is that apart from the obvious of using it for a whole year, you also get discount on shops/restaurants, free parking, free buggy hire, discount on shows.

Best of all, with the Dream and Fantasy pass you also get entrance to the extra magical hours each morning which I'd say was worth it's weight in gold in the peak sumnmer months.

Check out DLRP Magic for annual pass benefits.

The passes aren't available for summer yet but it would be worth waiting IMHO.

(You'll need to speak French or be able to use google translate for the ticket website, although it is fairly straight forward!)

I think it really depends on where abouts in the country you're coming from. Coming from the north of England I thoroughly researched all methods and after taking into account cost and time decided that driving and either tunnel or Dover-Calais ferry was the best value.

I agree Cheap_n_Nicety. Gonna wait until the summer passes become available as it could save around another £200.

I will be driving and got a return Euroshuttle trip for £102 and also booked an overnight in Folkstone which was £39 at the Premier Inn so the only other cost is the diesel which I calculated to be about £90.

Is an annual pass a calendar year? Are there any restrictions on being resident anywhere or anything? Think Florida might be a bit much for the kids but tempted to take them here, sounds quite a fun place to stay

Original Poster

Its valid for a calendar year but can only be activated at the park and must be activated within 6 months of being purchased online so if going in August you have to wait until its less than 6 months away (i.e. Feb/ March time) before buying online. You also need to take a passport phot with you when you go to get it validated. I think thats the jist of it from what I read

any suggestions on best time to visit off peak. 2 adults 2 kids and baby

Original Poster

Not sure really but it can get quite hot in Paris in summer months which might not be very nice for the little 'un so maybe April May time??

ok need to find best prices for may. are babys free. do they do rooms that accommodate for 2 adults 2 child and a baby.

couple of quick questions...

Can you do Disney in a day? With the offer Disney currently have on I can get 4 nights at Davey Crocketts including passes for 2 Adults, 2 Children for £670ish. I think I only really want a day (or possibly two) at Disney so this may work out as a better deal.

Is their much to do around here, especially with children, apart from going to DisneyLand?

I know food can be pricey around Disney... Are their other better, more reasonably priced fooderies within driving distance? Im thinking of a french equivalent of pub grub etc.

If staying at the Explorers is Paris easy enough to drive to or would you recommend Shuttle Bus/Train from here?

Having only been the once (Staying at the Kyriad) I would say theres not much else around the area but then again we flew there last time so didn't get to venture very far. That's one of the other reasons I booked the Explorers seems like theres plenty to keep the kids occupied at this hotel. I think you need at least one full day to do Disney then another day to do the Disney Studios.

There are a couple of big shopping malls close by from what I've read which have cinemas and bowling alleys and more than likely restaurants etc and don't forget Disney Boulevard which has loads of restaurants outside the park other than that not sure if the French have such a thing as "le pub grub" lol.
I would recommend the train from Marne la Vallee into Paris which takes about 35 minutes as I've seen how busy it can get in Paris and I'd reckon parking would probably cost the same as the train fare.

I can't see anything on the website other than cots are available but you might have to pay full price and might need a 6 person room. Might be worth contacting the hotel direct to ask.

Hmm trying available dates seems they are booked up every day for2014,......either that or the site is a load of s@#t!!!!

I have stayed here, good hotel, great for kids

We stayed at this hotel last October and it's great! They do family rooms that have 3 beds in and you can also add on an adjourning room that has bunk beds.

Even cheaper for your dates with promo code ML13 : £369.27 (+free cancellation).

Can someone help with Disney park tickets please

I've already got annual passes which expire just after these dates. I just need Eurostar tickets.. anyone know when these will be released?

The Euro tunnel is right outside of the park , with buses /shuttle station there .also if you are buying annual passes ( we did this years ago and could be purchased at the gate with our passports as proof of child's age ) make sure you read when you can use the passes as we could only use ours for two consecutive days , also take very comfortable shoes !

Motorway tolls are around €20 each way also.

Good point - thanks for that Chris.

is this hotel cheaper than doing a package with Disney?
Tickets seem to be a lot of cash

looking at packages on disney site. Around June time, doesnt seem to be any holidays. Or is anyone aware of any school holidays to avoid in June please?

No school holidays in June in France, but June 9th is a bank holiday, so avoid this date.

Otherwise, the best would be to avoid weekends. I'd say the best dates would be between 2nd-6th june or 16th-20th june.
