We're hoping to stuff ourselves silly at breakfast and as we're driving we will be taking snacks to take into the park for lunch and eating a counter/restaurant meal at tea time.

I'm going to take a kettle with me, tea, coffee etc. biscuits and DH some beer for the evenings as the boys will be in bed pretty early, as I imagine we will be due to exhaustion!

I hope the coffee receipts continue into February!

Update - we now can't go! We were looking at staying at the Hotel Cheyenne and for the dates we wanted it was going to cost 476 for the four of us with breakfast and park tickets which I thought was amazing! Then priced up eurostar and almost fell off my chair! The cheapest return I could find was 270. I looked at cheap flights but they weren't coming up much different so was going to drive and go by ferry. But on Friday, the car failed it's MOT and it's going to cost a fair amount to get it fixed (car is getting on a bit now) which has really hit our holiday budget. We therefore decided not to go in March and I'm really pleased we didn't tell the girls we were even planning it because they would have been so disappointed. We will maybe look at it again later in the year and I will still keep a note of this thread with everyone's fantastic suggestions. Thank you xxx

Eurostar start at 69 return, but just like UK trains, the longer you leave it the dearer they get.

On the upside - you might be able to book for when the 20th anniversary stuff is on. I'm sure there will be an offer soon.

Oh no what a shame!

We are driving, (staying in premier inn, in Folkestone there and back) even with the price of petrol and hotel it is cheaper to do so. We also priced up Eurostar 6 months in advance and they wanted 349, not including the price from Manchester to London via train. Arghhh!

Dont forget that you can always upgrade your breakfast from the hotel to a character breakfast at cafe mickey! you just pay the difference, we have done that a couple of times! you need to ask them at the dining reservations in the hotel, not at the reception desk! a bit of a cheaper way to get a character breakfast! lol!

hth
which hotel are you staying in?
xx
thanks i think thats a great idea as ive booked us in for breakfast and felt like we would be wasting money xxxx:

I am so sorry to hear that! Did you try booking eurostar through the Disney website? Because it is more expensive this way. Have you try checking through eurostar direct?

I think the kids are mobile enough that perhaps Eurostar to Paris and then switch to RER to Disney might be possible. There is change but if you travel light enough, it is very do-able.

I won't really advise flying if possible because the transfer from airport to hotel can be quite expensive
