Planning Your Disneyland Paris Holiday Part 2

Planning Your Disneyland Paris Holiday Part 2

| 13 Comments

Mummy says…We have been to Disneyland Paris three times in the past 18 months and hope to go again in the next year. It is a bit of a minefield to know how, when and where to book and how to choose your travel, meal plans etc so I will be sharing a series of posts to help you in planning your Disneyland Paris holiday. This one is all about which websites to use to book your holiday….

 

Planning Your Disneyland Paris Holiday Part 2

Make sure you have read Part 1 about planning travelling to Disneyland Paris.

The booking options are:

  1. Website.
  2. Disneyland Paris Official brochure – booking via a travel agent or online.
  3. Coach companies usually have their own brochure, as may your local coach holiday operator.

The best websites:

  1. Magic Breaks. A UK site, usually cheaper than the official Disneyland Paris website, and with lots of extras too. You can pay a deposit then pay off the balance as you want to.
  2. Disneyland Paris European sites. Try the German and French sites as they offer better deals with better prices. www.disneylandparis.de and www.disneylandparis.fr You can easily translate the web pages with Google Translate, and book by telephone to pay a 15% deposit. Just ask for the German or French offer. This sounds a bit daunting, but I did it for our December 2017 holiday.
  3. Google Disneyland Paris holidays and have a look at the first page only or you will get so confused – I found that no one else offered better prices though for me.

Things to consider:

  1. How often will you be going to DLP in the next year? If it is more than once it may be cheaper for you to buy annual passes and book your hotel separately for each holiday.
  2. Weigh up staying ‘off site’ in a non Disney hotel and buying park tickets separately against the price of a package. Cost both without travel.
  3. How many of you are going. Most Disney Hotels only sleep 4, but some can have connecting doors. It may be cheaper for larger groups to stay off site.

Remember:

  1. Book your travel separately.
  2. Staying in a Disney Hotel gives you Magic Hours – you can enter the parks before the general public.
  3. If you drive and use the main car parks it will cost you to park – last year it was around €20 a day.
  4. Davey Crocketts Ranch CANNOT be reached by foot from the parks and there are no shuttle buses. You have to drive.

 

Have you any tips to add for choosing your accommodation for Disneyland Paris? Or have you got a great deal from another website?

  1. Thanks
    £20 a day for parking !
    Always good to be forwarned
    Love to take a trip if funds are available

  2. Thank you for this! I’ve been wanting to plan a trip to Disney Land Paris and Disney World so this has been very useful!

  3. I didn’t know that about the Davy Crocketts ranch, thanks for sharing! Great things to consider. Can’t wait to take my daughter to DLP!

  4. I think the ease of staying on site or in a partnered hotel was what made us stop looking at travelling in. There are some great resources listed here and that is a great tip about the annual pass!

  5. Great tips! We are hoping to do DLP next year so will definitely find this helpful!

  6. I very much enjoyed part 1 so I was very excited when I saw this post! Honestly, Disney plays such a big part in my life so this was very helpful! Thanks a lot! Got to love a bit of woody, mickey and buzz in your life! 🙂 One of my fave meet and greets is with Aladdin and Jasmine what is yours? 🙂

  7. I have never been to Disneyland but I would like to, especially since I love roller coasters. I like the sound of ‘magic breaks!

  8. Thanks for this. I am hoping to go very soon and this has helped with planning.

  9. I’ve never heard of magic breaks but it sounds like a great site to use if you can just pay a deposit to begin with x
