Disneyland paris....Help please!...

9 replies
Found 5th Jan 2008
Hi all

I am planning to take my gang (2 adults and 2 kids) to the above in November (3rd - 7th ideally, 4 nights). I am looking for the best price for decent accomodation and tickets for the park. Can anyone give me some advice or pointers? Never been before. I will be going by eurotunnel in the 'fun bus' so no need for transport prices. The 'garden apes' will be 4 and 1. I know there is £14 Quidders and the best price I can get so far is for the Santa Fe hotel and it was £434.

Thanks all

Foxy

hi mate

i have been 3 or 4 times...

do not fall into the trap of thinking " I must stay on disney site"... do your research and dont be afraid to ask on the forum given below. I did and saved loads of dosh and had a better time that I controlled..

I have stayed in Santa Fe ( first time) was fine for a few days.. but be adventerous.

this website is very very very helpful..lots of forums with reports etc from a) people who have been and b) people who work there

Thanks for that, those forums are very large! What hotel would you recommend? I am not too fussed on the hotel being affiliated to Disney. I am more interested in getting the most for my money (without being ripped off (if that's possible!)). Where would you recommend eating? (I've heard this can be very pricey).

Thanks for your help. Rep added :thumbsup:

We've also stayed at Santa Fe and like Immatoity said it was fine for a few days or a first visit.

Since my daughters were 1 and 7 we've stayed in Paris and travelled to Disney via the RER network. There are loads of cheap hotels to stay at and travelling on the Metro and the RER is no different from the Underground and the Rail network here. Both your children would be free and the cost of RER tickets isn't too expensive especially as you can get a 1,2 or 3 or more day rail pass.

The major advantage of staying in Paris apart from the cheap accommodation is that there are a million and one cheap eateries (makes a change from the overpriced fastfood rubbish they sell at Disney) .Also, you can spend a day or two exploring the city, makes a change from Mickey Mouse & co.

We like to cook so we usually stay at an apartment hotel. Usually L'Orion at La Defence, which is at the west of the city but on the right RER line for Marne La Vallee (Disney), which is East of Paris. But you could always find a nice hotel more in the centre; approximately £35 per room per night (a family room will sleep all 4).

I usually get my Disney tickets from Fleabay, but make sure feedback is good and the tickets are in date for your visit.

Hope this has helped a little. Hope you have a wonderful time. :thumbsup:

That is superb advice, I really do appreciate it! :thumbsup: I am really looking forward to going now!

agreed

getting around on the RER line is easy and to me at least, adds to the experience..

have a great time..but as I say.. take the time to read those forums..

also please please please look into getting annual passports.. for a few quid more than you pay for 3-4 day hopper tickets you basically get a years ticket!! meaning if you like it you can go back any time within 12 months and dont have to worry about getting in

I've been and would not recommend it. Florida is much better.

We only go once a year so annual passports aren't really for us. However, I agree with Immatoity, they are great if you intend to go more than once a year. Also, Disney are currently doing a special offer where under 7 year olds get a free annual passport with every adult one bought.

Worth a look.

Yep, you are right, Disney Florida is the ultimate, we will go there, but in a few years time, once I have saved enough to have a 3-4 week holiday.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, on our first trip out there, I think we will go for a hotel right near the Disney Resort (one with a direct transfer bus/train). My kids are only 3 and 6 month's, so the amount of gear we have makes any underground trips a mission. I will been having a good look around while im there so I can find the best place for our next trip there (if we enjoy this one that is!).

Does anyone know if there are any discount codes for Disney, or any offers coming up in November?

Thanks for all your help and advice people, it's much appreciated.

hey, im going to disneyland paris in march, i got my hotel the 'travellodge disney hotel' 4 stars booked from thomas cook website for £120 for 3 nights inc b and b. my flights were a big more expensive, 185.

I got my park tickets on auctions at amazon, i got 3 single adult hopper day passes for 40 quid all in. I just need another single adult day ticket...... Were only goin to the park for the two days and possibly going to paris sightseeing the third day. CANT WAIT TO GO!!!!!!!
