Bonjour Mickey! A Review of Disneyland Paris

Rocco and Disney

What kind of family travel blog is this without at least one Disney post?  Here’s a Disneyland Paris report from Sara Greene of Travel Counsellors, the luxury travel specialist.

Who:  Sara, husband and son (2.5) with sister, brother in law and nephew (5)
When:  Jan 2013 (weather was very cold but we wrapped up warm so it didn’t stop us from doing anything.  I found it a great time to go as it was not as busy as peak periods so we had the opportunity to see the whole park with minimal waits for rides etc

Trip Booking
Through myself as I am a Travel Counsellor!

We went by Eurostar which was so easy.  It takes you right into Disneyland Paris (approx. 5 mins walk to the Entrance to the park)

How much?
As an agent, I get a concessions package.  Included was 2 night’s accommodation, 3 day park passes and Half Board Plus

What did you think about the hotel?
It was the New York Hotel which is classed as one of Disney’s 5*.  I would say it was a 4* Superior as the food was not great.  Rooms are spacious and clean.

The hotel is family friendly as it is all focused around Disney.  Characters are there at breakfast which is fabulous!

Disneyland Paris
This was excellent.  It is so easy to get there with the Eurostar connection.  There was something to do for all ages. My little boy went on lots of rides and we saw lots of shows.

Top Tips
Avoid any of the major rides first thing in the morning as you can be queuing for a while.  We found if we did the rides later on in the day the most we waited was approximately 20 minutes.  If you can do Half Board it is well worth it as the food is extortionate once you get there.

Cafe Mickey is a must!  The characters are there while you dine, the kids loved it!
