Cheapest Way

Can anyone suggest the cheapest way of getting to Disneyland Paris please.
Is it Flight or Euro? Stay in Disney or not?
Appreciate your help

It generally depends on how many of you there are, and where in the UK you are based.

For us driving always tends to be the cheapest. The ferry can be had for around 80 if you book ahead, tolls are around 22 each way and then fuel on top.

Just ensure you factor in all the costs when comparing. For example if you fly add on airport parking if you need it and then transfers from the airport to Disney which will be extra.

As a rule booking a package that includes travel tends to work out more expensive than booking it separately yourself.

We always drive over. Weve never looked at how much flights or Eurostar are but Im guessing it would cost a lot more than it does to drive as there are 5 of us.
The cheapest onsite stay weve had is when we booked 13 months out.
Look around at different countrys sites as they have different offers on. Weve always got the best price ourselves by booking direct with DLP though.

Book travel separately. Eurostar can be relatively inexpensive if you manage to catch the cheap tickets - particularly if you get those going to Marne la Vallee and changing at Lille. Alternatively you can get the Eurostar to Gare du Nord and get an RER train to Marne la Vallee. GdN tickets are sometimes 29 per person each way in their sales (but times may not be great).

Onsite is great (and includes tickets for length of stay). However, there are lots of inexpensive offsite hotels just a few minutes journey away.

I'm in the South West and it worked out cheaper for me to fly and book off-site separately. I managed to get flights from Bristol and 2 nights at the Hipark for me and my son for 270 total this December. It's only a 10-15 min walk from the parks and I figured that I won't be in the room too much anyway

I've flown all but once to DLP. The time we drove it was just too far from where I am. It was about 11 hours I think with the crossing

We're going to spend what we saved on the room on food and toys

We always find driving to be cheapest, and for us, staying onsite has been cheaper than staying offsite and buying tickets separately. Having said that, Ive never looked closely into the best bargains for offsite (although prices do seem to be very low anyway) or tickets (which Ive only come across expensive tickets for school holidays.) I do spend a while finding the best package prices for onsite hotel & tickets (cheapest was 600 for five days for four of us in Santa Fe in the school holidays last year, and most expensive was 1200 for the DLH for five days for four of us in school holidays.) I dont think I could have beaten the Santa Fe price by staying offsite, not for four nights and after adding on tickets. I could probably have beaten the DLH price, but missed out on a great experience.

For us, driving only adds on the cost of petrol and around 40 toll costs, plus some Tesco clubcard vouchers to cover the crossing.

Depends entirely where you live. Flying is usually cheaper for us.

We have 2 ferry crossings included in our trip so which ever way we priced up the travel always came out expensive hence why we have never been to DLP.

Doing our first trip next March for 299 each for 3 nights at Santa Fe includes park tickets and all travel.
