The cabins are very basic, but comfortable and the drive from Zeebrugge is only about 20 minutes longer than from Calais
There are some pics in our Trippie - the September 2012 is the one we used this route
Ahhh thank you Mel! I'll take a goosey gander, my only worry is that it may be a bit cramped, as there's quite a few of us. But I love the theming of it! I've put it to my sister and mum to see what they think. It didn't even occur to me you could sail from Hull I'm like an American when they ask if your from London and do you know the Queen lol!

We are driving to get there, we stay in the far north of Scotland, and still find driving is cheaper than the alternative (well it was last year as we got an offer on the ferry, 75 return, and stayed overnight with family). This year we are having a couple of overnights either side, and taking the tunnel, and DH is keen to try it!

I also love that by taking the car we can take as much luggage as we want, and not worry about buying things and getting them home.

We stayed in the Cheyenne last year, and are going back as it was the only hotel that had the offer on for the dates we wanted, but we are planning on going back in October and want the SL or NY.
Good idea! I was going to wack it on my new credit card (0% interest for 14 months) and pay it off over 4 months, as we do not have the dosh up front!

It was very easy and well organised, my main issue was the cabins were quite warm!...oh and I was sick all morning (but I think that was a bug!)

The drive from zebrugge was incredibly easy...would recommend (altho as I'm not sure if my sickness was bug or sea sickness I'm not sure I would rush to do it again...lol)
Oh no! You see being on a ferry is the only time I have ever suffered from travel sickness! I like organised things, my mum is panicking about driving in europe, but it's only like 3 hours isn't it, me and my sister could do it.

I hadn't taken any travel sick pills, so that might help!

The drive is less than 3 hrs and very straightforward

You can pay in instalments booking through Disney. Just phone them (use the cheap number in the sticky thread).
