We are looking at same period. The hotel prices are acceptable to us (albeit still high) considering its school holidays and includes park tickets, half board plus 100 euro gift card. But were finding Eurostar prices to be far too high given it is still 9 months away.

Check the cashback websites for opportunity to make some savings too.

How are you pricing it up? All as one package or Disney and transport separately?

If all in one, then get quotes for Disney and Eurostar separately, as booking together is often more expensive. That said Oct half term is popular (and therefore expensive) and it appears the Eurostar has shot up in price this year.

Are you able to drive over as opposed to the Eurostar? You may find this saves a considerable amount of money.

The other option is to book an indirect train on the Eurostar with a change at Lille, but these only come up 90 days ahead.

The fact there are six of you maybe pushing the onsite hotels into booking you two rooms and doubling the price in the process. Are you happy to stay offsite in order to get larger rooms that may accommodate all of you?

If you drive you could go for Davy Crockett Ranch which would give you cabins with enough room for 6, whilst still getting the advantages of staying onsite such as EMT.

We usually drive as it is the cheapest option for us. In terms of the crossing you have the Ferry from Dover (DFDS often cheaper than P&O so price up both) or the Eurotunnel from Folkestone - if you have Clubcard points you can use these towards the cost of Eurotunnel.

You might want to split the journey and do Yorkshire-Kent and then stay over and head to France the next day.

Factor in the motoway tolls in France which are around 22 each way. The drive is super easy - pretty much all motorway and takes around 3 hours from Calais to Disneyland.

If you stay onsite you get free car parking. If you stay at DCR then you drive between the parks and the ranch, again you get free parking in the main car parks.

We did DLP last Halloween- we used the eurotunnel as the Eurostar prices were so much more expensive.

The drive from Calais is really straightforward. If you collect clubcard points I used these towards the cost and the tolls were about 20 euros. We also stayed in the premier inn at folkestone the night before to break up the drive a bit - this was only about a 5 minute drive from the terminal so super convenient and was a reasonable price too.

We stayed offsite and booked through hotels.com as again I used clubcard vouchers to help bring the cost down so not much help with the Disney hotels I'm afraid.

If the drive from Yorkshire really puts you off then maybe look into getting the ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge - I think its 3 hours from Paris so no difference on the France side. Were coming back this way in Feb. It is an overnight crossing though - works out better for us than staying in Dover before getting the ferry but Im not sure what costs would be like for the cabin space youd need.
