Disneyland Paris Reviews Tips – As with anything holiday-related, there is a low and high season for visiting Disneyland Paris – Christmas, for example, is a hugely popular time so you can expect prices to vary quite dramatically depending on when you’d like to visit. There are special offers available throughout the year, however, so it’s worth checking the Disneyland Paris website to see what’s available. As a rule, weekends are more expensive than visiting during midweek and of course weekends will be much busier so you’ll have to expect much longer queuing times for attractions when you’re in the park.
Remember that as many of the attractions are outdoors you may find that the depths of winter make wandering around outside rather uncomfortable, especially with little ones. Northern France experiences weather quite similar to the UK in winter so do bear this in mind when planning your trip.
Best Way to Book Your Trip
You can book your trip direct through the Disneyland Paris website, which offers park and accommodation packages. As with any holiday you’ll need to shop around a little to find the best deal to suit your needs. You can of course buy your park tickets alone and then sort out your accommodation separately. There are lots of tour operators offering deals to the Disneyland resort but be sure to book with a reputable firm that is ABTA and/or IATA registered so you’ll have the necessary protection against your booking. Larger operators who visit Disneyland Paris include First Choice, Thomas Cook and the The Co-operative Travel. Online travel specialists such as Expedia and Lastminute also cover the resort, and allow you to tailor-make your own package.
If you’re planning to travel by Eurostar you may find that booking a train and hotel package via the Eurostar website makes a cost-effective and convenient choice. Alternatively you might like to consider basing your trip in Paris and then travelling into the park for the day – the resort is just 35 minutes by train from the centre of Paris.
Many parents on our forums have recommended using Tesco Clubcard vouchers to purchase your travel – the vouchers are redeemable against travel on Eurotunnel (the car shuttle from Ashford to Calais) which can make your travelling costs much more affordable.
