Hi cj,
Firstly, there is a forum on Trip Advisor dedicated to Disneyland Paris where posters who know it very well can help you plan your trip to get the most out of it. If you read through the Top Questions lists on both forums they should help, and if you join TA you can then ask your own. Also read through previous topic threads, and also the Trip Reports which usually contain helpful tips.
The two forums are linked, so it doesn't matter which one you post on.

Next year is the 20th Anniversary, and celebrations will probably begin from April with new shows and parades, but French school holidays will be very crowded. as next year is going to be very popular, we have no way of knowing what offers will come out, as this depends on how bookings are going. The best we have had so far is 30% off hotel/ tickets/ transport. Kids aged under 7 yrs usually stay and play free, and sometimes kids under 12 on certain arrival dates in certain hotels.

You need to play around with arrival dates if you can, as prices vary, and also offers with each resort hotel.
When you say ' stay in a lodge ' do you mean in Davy Crockett Ranch which is about 15 - 20 mins drive from Disney, or in one of the 5 lodge buildings in the Sequoia Lodge hotel? Davy Crockett Ranch is self catering.
Another option for self catering is Adagio Aparthotel in Val D'Europe, about 5 mins drive from Disney. Also the Marriott Village, which is near Disney Golf course.

Local French schools are on holiday from 18th Feb - 5th march, then 14th April to 30th April,2012.

If you book a package with Disney it includes park tickets for every day including arrival and departure days. Alternatively you can book the EuroTunnel separately, and a hotel/ accommodation with or without park tickets.
Park tickets can be bought more cheaply on some French websites if they are available for your dates and either posted to you, or collected from store locations in France like Val D'Europe shopping mall.

Tickets are also sold in sterling more cheaply than the UK Disney website on www.attractionticketsdirect.com

Barcelona schools are on holiday from 2nd April - 9th April, so there will be a lot of Spanish visitors in DLP at this time.

It may be worth checking prices with these companies as well.
