Transport to Disney

h Hal

We Have timeshare points and maybe able to exchange to this via II.

How did you get from airport to resort and from resort to Disney ?

Are there buses or would you need a car

Thanks

Hi Angela,

We took our car but seeing as you are in Edinburgh flying would indeed be much easier.

The resort has a free shuttle to and from the DLP parks. If you have missed this or prefer not to wait for it there was a very cheap taxi/private-hire minibus deal. They had good transfer rates to the Airports too - or you could simply make your way to DLP (Marne-la-Vallee Chessy) from the airport and get a taxi from there (contact the resort for details).

If you need any further help please PM me.

Regards,

Thanks for advice Hal

After re-reading yor message I realised you'd travelled by car

We've already planned this years trip but are planning to return with friends again next year -between march-may. The extra living space would be great for our two 3 year olds.

Thanks again

Davey Crocketts Ranch

Having stayed there about 10 times, We would strongly recommend it.
We book direct witrh Disney and have never got a cheaper price from anybody else.
We normally travel with P and O from Dover, Its a good Idea to pay for priority unloading its 10 each way but you can pay for it just on the way out if you like which means you are loaded 1st so you can get up to the food court so no bun fight for food. THen you get unloaded 1st so you can crack on with the journey.
Journey time from Calais is around 3 hours. Make sure you either have a 20 euro note or your credit card ready for the tolls. Also put the ticket somewhere safe so you aren't scrabbling around for it at the booths.

When you Get to DCR you have to show your paper work to the gate guy so that he lets you check in so also keep that handy. After you have booked in at reception. You will be given a pin code to lift the barrier. THey say they can't promise you entry to your cabin until 4 in the afternoon but most times we have been we have got in by 2 0r 3.

The Cabins are set on TRails which is a loop that you can only go one way on. either one or 2 bedrooms each one has its own parking space and picnic table and BBQ right outside.
THe one bedroom has a double bed and bunkbed in one room. with a pull down sofa bed in the living area.

THe 2 bedroom has a double room at the back of the cabin and a small room with bunkbeds at the other end. THis provides more storage space for clothes and bags. Also there is a double sofa bed in the Lounge.

It has a Kitchenette with 2 rings and a microwave, Fridge with freezer box, and Dishwasher, you get 2 dishwasher tablets but no washing up liquid.
So you may need to take extra.
THe Bathroom has a shower over bath and the towels are provided, THe Toilet is separate which is quite handy, But the Toilet can get pretty parky in the winter as there isn't any heating in it. If you go in the winter months I suggest you turn the heating on as soon as you get in the cabin to take the chill off. We crank it up during the day so its nice when we get back. THe Shutters are a nice touch anre really keep out the light they have to be closed from the outside.
The Tv doesn't really show a lot appart from french channels and sports, there is a Disney info channel in English, Would reccommend Taking a lap top if you have a dvd player.
The Breakfast is collected from a little hut at the opening to your Trail, You get Chousants and french stick jam, nutella, butter, coffee, tea, and orange maid. In the winter you also get Pain au chocolete.

THe On site shop is quite small I would recommend you buy food and drink before you get there as it is very limited and obviously more expensive.
There is a petting Farm and childrens paly area we have only ever been out of seasdon but I imagine it could get quite busy.

THe Pool is nice there are floats for the kids to take in the water and a small lazy river and childrens playpool, there are also 2 spas although they weren't working last time we went. The restrant over looks the pool which is nice.
THe food has always been good in my experiance its freshly cooked while you wait. There is genrally quite a good salad cart as well.
You do get Characters coming around the table but it is very hit and miss noramlly its lesser characters like robin hood, and co. But last time we went Mickey dressed in his trappers outfit was the only charatcer we saw.
Haven't been to the pub so can offer no opinion other than it looks quite nice, THe area is dressed really nicely at Christmas totally in keeping with the rest of Disney.
Its a really quick 5 minute drive to Disney and the cost of PArking is included in the price. THe TRavolators are great fun for the children and play all sorts of Disney music. Which is a nice start and finish to the day. My DD loved the drinks machines in the Carpark as they made the sound of opening coke pouring coke as you passed. Only at disney lol.

Hope this helps people who are still making up there minds.

Visited Camp Davy Crockett three times & loved it,

Booked through Disney direct, Accomadtion only as we've combined our visits with our holidays in France.

Love the fact we have our car with us & can come & go as we please.

A big plus is that we don't have to share a bed-room with the kids!

Also a great pool

Our only on-site experience but we don't think we have lost out by staying there but have gained. Characters are around throughout the day.
