I wonder if Im just missing all of the decent deals but a 4 night break is never less than 2k for me that I just cannot justify 2k for four nights and thats not even including a dining plan 😬

I would only book 4 nights when its 4 for the price of 2 - which they havent done for a while now.

Look for 30% off and free half board. Arrive midweek and avoid French and Spanish public holidays. Santa Fe is usually the cheapest. Eurostar via Gare du Nord is often cheaper than direct, and regularly has offers if you sign up - usually 29 each way, though the times for that price are the less popular ones.

I know that lots on here seem to use Magic breaks (and actually today Ive found that lots of links seem to redirect me through to them as well!), but I was wondering if anyone ever uses DLParisdirect?

They seem to be coming out a couple of hundred pounds cheaper & as Im trying to keep costs as low as possible that very appealing!

I agree prices have gone up a lot. I never used to pay more than 1000 for our family of 5 to stay onsite but now I cannot get it for less than that.
We have got 7 nights booked in August at the stay city apartments for 700 (new hotel that does not open until August), and we will buy annual passes with a 260 upfront cost and then 60 a month cost. We will also use Tesco vouchers to pay for the tunnel/ferry.
Its actually cheaper for us to buy annuals now and either stay onsite with the annual pass discount or stay offsite even if we only go for 1 trip a year.

Thank you for this 👍

Sadly I cant use Tesco clubcard vouchers as we would need a minimum five night stay, but that would of been a good choice otherwise.

DH really wants to stay onsite and hes prepared to pay extra, but I cant justify the prices at the moment.

We would like to stay at Hotel Cheyenne as its the only Disney hotel weve yet to stay in, but knowing I can get the Hipark Serris which is closer, cheaper, is another stumbling block for me at present! 🙂

I want to keep it to 1300 max, just because then spending money is easier to manage but at the moment to get that it would mean changing to offsite for the last night, which seems a faff for such a short break, especially when its not a cheap one! ☹️

What's your party make-up and the dates that you're looking at?

I've never used, or seen anyone say they've used the website you asked about, so I can't help there. Sorry. X

There are 4 of us (DH & myself plus two boys aged 12 & 15). Ideally we want to catch an early ferry on Tuesday 20th August, so that we can be in the parks for later in the afternoon and evening. Stay 3 nights at Hotel Cheyenne and then a later ferry back on Friday 23rd August to overnight in Dover ready to meet family the next day.

Alternatively we could go a day later, but then would miss using the 4th Park day, as would need to leave DLP in the morning to get an afternoon ferry back to Dover by mid afternoon.

Finally the cheapest way Im considering is - 2 nights Hotel Cheyenne from Wednesday 21/8, with three days park tickets, but so as to not miss the last full day, switching to an offsite hotel at park closing, just sleep there and then get up on sat am and get the early afternoon ferry home. Just cant decide if that is too much faffing around to save a couple of hundred pounds?

Did you add your transport separately?

It's coming in at approx 1292 on the French website at the moment, without transport. They have 30% off and free under 12s, it's a shame that your youngest is 12!

1382 ish on the German website, 25% off and a free 200 Disney gift card.

Both cheaper than the 1387.53 that's coming up on the UK site.

I just put in birthdays that should make your boys the right age, but I have brain fog today, so might have miscalculated. I'm pretty sure that I did it right, though.

However, if your bank/card charges for conversion or a fee for foreign transactions, the saving might not be worth it, or even there. Xx

P.s this is using conversion on Google. Obviously that's subject to change. X

Thank you so much for taking the time to do that for me, thats really kind.

On the DLParisdirect website it included the ferry which was why I think they were cheapest, but as Ive now read mixed reviews with them, I think I might just book direct - thank you so much x
