Disneyland Paris

Hi,

Planning to take my daughter to Disney during the Easter break as its her birthday!. I know its quite late, but was wondering if anyone could recommend a good hotel. Is it best to stay in the resort? If we do stay a bit away, is it a big disdvantage with respect to long queues, extra travel etc? Also, would 3 full days be sufficient?

Thanks.

Re: Disneyland Paris

We took our 4 kids there during the Herbst back in October. We stayed in a mobile home at a camping ground that was about 20 - 30 away from Disneyland. This was very central for us as we also spent 3 days in Paris, taking the train in though. Check out the link below

We got a 3 day pass for Disneyland and felt that it was long enough. We did alternates days at the park with a day in Paris. This worked well for us as you do so much walking getting around the park.

One thing I would suggest is looking before you go with what you want to see and do. Some rides will be closed so you need to be aware of this. Also if you want to do the photos with the "stars", arrive early and be prepared to queue.
We found that the start of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) were the quieter days. The end of the week, particularly Saturday, were totally madness and if you could I would suggest avoiding it if possible.

Have fun!

Re: Disneyland Paris

I have the habit of picking up and looking at the Aldi vacation specials thingie occasionally when I'm shopping... so I happened to notice that in the "newest" one, there is a special for Disneyland Paris.

Looking at the dates, it appears you'd likely be "Saison B" so would run about 260chf per person but would include two "day tickets", one for Disneyland park and the second for their Studio park. (Hopefully I understood that correctly.)

The hotel stay is at the Dream Castle Hotel, looks like right at Disneyland.

As intriguing as that is, I've not looked completely into what they offer (my German isn't up to understanding fully) but perhaps it is some interest and use to you.



Going by what I recall of the Disney parks in the US, often the area right near the parks is fairly well built up. If it is the same in Paris, you should be able to find plenty of hotels in the area with a variety of room rates.

As ka pai also made use of, there often are camping parks nearby as there are enough folks who include a visit to the parks in their big "road trip" vacations to make the need for camping areas fairly obvious. At the parks in the US, they offer reservations to their own campground as well as there being others nearby.

With all that in mind, hopefully some of the options would suit your tastes and needs. Have a great time!!

Re: Disneyland Paris

Go for the disney hotel package. Price maybe a bit stiff but the comfort is worth it. (been going there every year for the past 10 years with my daughter)

If you are driving and would like to drive around the area consider the marne le vallee area and visit the factory outlets there
