Visit Disneyland Paris on a Budget – It’s Possible!
In December, myself, my partner and four children aged seven, three, two and one spent three nights and three days in the Explorers Hotel in Disneyland Paris for €1,400. That included our flights, accommodation, park tickets, transfers, parking in Dublin airport and a passport renewal for myself and two kids. I had a strict budget I had to abide to and with lots of research and patience we did it.
Here are my top tips for visiting Disneyland Paris on a budget, and advice for during your stay.
#1. Book Everything Yourself
To get the cheapest possible price to Disneyland Paris you must book everything yourself. That includes your flights, accommodation, park tickets and transfers.
#2. Shop Around for Flights
You will be flying into Charles De Gaulle or Orly in Paris. Compare flights using a website or app like Skyscanner and book the cheapest direct flights you can find.
Try to book an early flight out and a late flight going home to get the most out of your time at Disneyland.
#3. Use French and German Websites
When booking your accommodation compare both French and German Disneyland websites for accommodation. Use Google Translate to translate everything into English for you. Keep an eye on both sites for different deals. The deal we normally choose is “kids stay and play free” meaning with one paying adult one child will be free.
NB: You cannot book online. When you find the right price ring the number prompted at the end and request the French or German deal.
Top tip: Ask for your park tickets & transfers to be included.
You will be asked to pay a 20% deposit and then organise a direct debit for the remaining balance of your Disneyland trip to be paid six weeks before you travel. Everything will be emailed to you.
