Just to pee me off, as Ive booked before the 20% off deal started, they've knocked it off the price of a booking.

Not a bad deal if you like disney things

when i went last new year it was cheapest to drive then next was the euro tunnel, i went on this and it great. if you drive it take salot longer though , so i would go for the euro tunnel.
i would like to add that its fantastic.

i went last year with 3 kids and me in march for just under 500 quid inclusive of half board. which i would highly recommend seeing as every adult meal is about 20E! Going again in march, using the current offer for 5 days and 4 nights with all three kids, 11, 6 and 4 for £354 including half board. bargain! Last year i drove and it was much easier, doddle to get to! If you book Eurostar through the disney website it is a ripoff, added over a grand! I went on eurostar website and got a quote for £118 each way on eurostar which isnt bad. the dilemma i have is ive change my car and now have a convertible which i can fit sod all in! good luck!

I'm really considering going again, I took my 9 year old in September then it was under 9's free, so would work out loads cheaper now it's under 12's free. I had a look on the site yesterday, does anyone know if the original quoted prices have the 20% off already?

i took my daugter last year for xmas it was amazing we had the best time would recomend anyone to go.

We went on the Eurotunnel this year and drove but because we live in the Midlands it was a lot of travelling. We took our sat nav thinking we were clever but for some reason the resort wouldnt show up so we dove round for ages trying to find the resort! Dont know where we went wrong but wouldn't recommend driving, from our experience - too long travelling for little kids.

We would def do Eurostar next time - free parking (apparently) at KENT and drops nearer to the resort entrance than your hotel shuttle bus will!!!

Also, if you can, stay in a Disney hotel - lovely hotels with characters wandering around and other perks including 2 EXTRA FREE HOURS IN THE PARKS BEFORE OTHER GUEST ARE ALLOWED IN!!! FAB

thanks for all the info :thumbsup:

Went last year and had a great time. had to fly as we are too far to drive or eurostar, but if i could id eurostar it as the airports can be a pain. Transfer bus to the resort was easy though. Def stay in a disney hotel, we were in the santa fey- it was fab.:)

I have to agree with most folk and would Eurostar it if you can. The train kicks out right at the parks (which cant be bad). Getting down from scotland loses the benefit for me though, so I fly. Pain in the butt sitting around the airport at check in though, and with transfers (about an hour CDG to resort) if we leave the house at 3am, we will still only get to the parks by 11 ish. :x Eurostar is 3 hours door to door (or so they claim) so if you are in the area Id use it.:thumbsup:

Perks for park entry / characters / shops etc mean Id always stay in a Disney hotel. 8-) The value ones are fine (santa fe, cheyenne) but basic. If you want a pool etc go fancyer. The food etc is pretty much similar quality wherever (except Disneyland Hotel. V Nice but v expensive)

It should be the same whether you follow the link or go direct to the site. The prices they quote will have the 20% off already. I dont know when this deal started though, so if you got prices previously Id go back and check again to see if its changed.

Im ths same for Feb, but my friend at the travel agents who gave me the heads up on this deal is feeling really daft. She is going same time as me, booked it a week ago, then found out about this:roll:

Just shows even the professionals can stuff up!:whistling:

I booked last week to stay in the Sequoia Lodge hotel from the 15th December and the prices have gone up now. I found the cheapest way for me to travel was by Easyjet, even taking into account that my son is two so I wouldn't have had to book him a seat on Eurostar.

Anyone know anything about the food prices over there? I am worried I should have booked half board now because I think my son would have eaten for free whereas I don't suppose he will now.

Sequoia lodge is nice! :thumbsup: The food shouldnt be too bad depending on what/ where you eat. Sneaky tip, that LOTS of people do over there is when at breakfast, make up some sandwiches and stash them in a bag for lunch. the continental breakfasts have plates of ham, salami, cheese etc so there is normal 'lunch' stuff.;-)

Fast food outlets are much cheaper than the table service places, and probably more like what a child would want to eat (table service almost invariably need booked, so can really restrict your itinerary). The New York sandwich shop in the village is V.V Good and well cheap (comparably), and there's a mcdonalds, though as a point of principle Ive never been (eat too much of it here:whistling:)

Have a great time!

Great deal ! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the advice Disney fan it is very much appreciated, we have never been to Disneyland Paris before so we don't know what to expect! It is me and a friend and my little boy who is two. He is quite tall for his age, more like a 3 year old, do you know if he will be able to go on most of the rides? Also how much roughly do you think it would cost for all three of us to eat? and is Father Christmas there in December? Sorry for all the questions, don't know anyone else who has been either!

Does anyone know if it will be cheaper to book on monday,with the reduction of VAT ?

humm my daughter would love this when is the best time to go?

anyweb site offers recomended anybody?

thanks

Rides will depend on what he likes, the wild rides mostly no. Things like Thunder mountain, sort of middle of the road, probably, depending on how tall he is (thats the only restriction on the rides) Mild stuff, - Fantasyland (everything), Buzz, Star tours, Flying carpets and things like that will be fine, so you wont be short of things to do. (scuse the pun). There are parades etc which are well worth watching.

Santa should be there- disneymagicalchristmas.com/ I would hope so anyway!

Food varies greatly in costs. Off the top of my head a Baguette chips and drink meal deal cost me 11e, the kids meal was 1/2 a baguette chips drink and a cake + toy and was 9e, that was in the village. Pizza was about the same (I think) You will pay a lot more for table service though. (Im a bit rusty on prices, I havn't been since Jan, sorry)

The food isnt cheap, but It isnt TOO bad, and Breakfast is included so shouldnt kill your budget.

Different point, but check at your hotel for character visit times. Can save lots of queueing in the park to see tigger etc. If your lad likes the characters that is. My lass used to just run!

Thanks for that, it is a shame the exchange rate is so rubbish at the moment. It would have worked out about £20 a day for all of us to go half board but we decided against it because we didn't want to tie ourselves to the hotel, not sure whether that was a good plan now but at least we won't have to plan round dinner! I have a feeling my little boy will be petrified of the characters as well, he is scared of that Elmo live toy so don't think I have got much hope with life size versions! Thanks again for taking the time to respond, this has been very useful information for me!

Have just cancelled our booking and re-booked - even losing the deposit we are £60 better off. I think you can do this as long as you are travelling more than 61 days from the cancellation date.:thumbsup: Net saving 10%

This is with no knowledge at all but...maybe not? It might still go through Paris and thus VAT wouldn't be changed.

Just come back from there with our 2 kids. A couple of tips. The Hotel Santa Fe is very good, and I would recommend it. Food nside the park is extremely expensive. To save a few quid we ate tonnes at the Santa Fe restaurant in the morning (all you can eat Continental Breakfast), to see us through until dinner time (some people in the restaurant were making their own ham and cheese rolls to take with them, but my wife wouldn;t let me do that!)

In the evening, we went back to the Santa Fe restuarant and ordered 2 eat as much as you can buffets (we said the kids weren't hungry), then we blagged enough food for all of us!

For anyone who has been to disney in Florida, please don;t think it will be the same, the one in Florida is in a different league, but for a great value break, you can't go wrong with this!

Great Deal!

PS Eurotunnel is so easy, it 'lands' right next to the park entrance!

Do you mind including some more details like which hotel and what dates you've booked? Been trying to find a deal like this myself.

Many thanks

I wondered about that. After going to Orlando I just don't bother with any UK theme park because it's like the pub team compared to premier league. Everything from the organisation, traffic flow, crowd handing waiting times, value are 1000 times better in Orlando. I was hoping that Eurodisney would be like Orlando, but this is the first indication that it would not be.

I have attempted to book this in the last half hour, but the price kept creeping up and up. I'll have another go now. The other thing is being so close to Paris I'd want to be in Paris because I love it there. But the kids would want Disney.

wish they were doing same deal for florida, they have just put prices up for next year now £206 for ultimate ticket only £189 (adult) other week kids were even less, they also made out they were extending the 14 for 7 offer they did but put prices up instead very naughty, any way enough of me moaning if anybody out their knows of cheap tickets im going next june 4 adults and 3 children (2 are disabled)

We book direct and booked for early next year, popped my dates etc in and there is no flights so thank goodness I booked as soon as the prices came out!!lol .. in saying that book elsewhere and there might be flights left???

And nope Florida doesn't interest me in the slightest, everything I've heard turns me even more towards Paris!:p

I am really surprised Florida doesn't interest you. It's more 'Disney' in my opinion. The staff are happy and helpful, the rides are better, the park is better, it's cleaner, the weather is better, it's better organised, the food inside is cheaper, everyone speaks English and there are more parks.

not the best time to go to the USA or EURO land either as the £ has slipped so not everything will be cheaper now

Yeah the food is quite expensive in DLP eh? I think its very clean though, there is never any dirt/litter about ?????

To be honest I'm just listening to people thats already gone (maybe 3 or 4 people) and they all said yes its good but DLP is much better ... so now thats in my head! I'd be scared to spend all that money and think why did I go, you know? And to get to the parks you are in a bus for 2 hours going between them??? Is that true?

I just love the laid back easyness of DLP ... mind you I haven't got anything to compare it to apart from Haven in Seton Sands!! hahaha!!!

oh and there is nothing better than a French accent!!:whistling:lol

Until the kids are ALOT older then I might think about Florida (the flight would freak me out right now with a 3 year old:))
But until then its DLP all the way!! xxx

Yes but (having been there last 3 years)
-Florida is a long way away if you are travelling with wee ones
-Travel time from hotel to park (even staying on disney hotels) can be from 15 to 30 mins depending on hotel/ park
-You cant walk from park to park if you want a change
-even if you take into account the cheap dollar its still cheaper to get to and stay at paris as park tickets are included and you're usually not away as long (never heard of anyone doing florida for 3 nts) (and yes if youwere to stay at paris for fortnight it would cost more- but you dont so you are cheaper per visit)
-realistically after lots of visits to paris in the last few years, never had a language problem, most speak english better than me! (thats not hard though):oops:
-dont assume the weather is always great in florida, rained for a fortnight last summer. Felt like scotland!

However Florida is certainly more of an experience
-There are more parks certainly, and more rides as a result
-There are fantastic shops (and really cheap!)
-the food is sooo cheap. Even in the parks (compared to here anyway)
-there is more to do than disney (universal, sea world, waterparks (if it stops raining.. sorry, bit bitter about last hol:x), Kennedy space ctr, list is endless!)
-Staff are (mostly) friendly, though waiting staff are ott for tips!

But florida is certainly not for everyones taste. The amount of people who told me after florida I wouldnt go back to paris. Twaddle.. Paris is fab. It is different from florida in a lot of ways, but is a more relaxed holiday as a result, for me anyway. And disney will always be disney, and a real experience.

2 hours between parks ???!!!

Not in my experience, but I was staying in disney hotels which are (by american standards) right beside the parks. The Mears Shuttle bus to Universal took an hour though, so possibly thats been people staying on I-Drive. Have to say Id always stay disney if I was doing disney. The perks really make the little extra cost worth it!

I about wet myself laughing at seton when they did their 'parade' and it was the disney magic parade music. Bit pretentious! Still my daughter likes haven, so...what can you do:roll:

Well I am telling you I wont be going back to Paris. Been 4 times and for New year.
Was great and enjoyed every time but went to Florida in March and already booked for next October.

Never again to Paris. Yes eveything is together but its tiny and not much else to do apart from go into the centre of Paris by Train from Disney (which we did).
Florida is amazing, so many places to go and so so so cheap. I stopped on I-Drive and was only 15 min drive (if that) to all the parks.

Dont waste you money on Paris, get to the states. I will be there every single year.
Agree is best to wait for the kids to get older, Mine were 9 and 7 when we went in March for 3 weeks. Never stopped and still couldnt do everything.

To be honest, as far as I am concerned DLP is a good park, but I was extremely dissapointed with the attitude of the French staff. Not once did they say 'Good Morning' or 'Have a nice day', and they never smile...that really got my goat, especially as we have to small children with us!
