We are thinking of going to Eurodisney with ds (3.5) for 3 or 4 days next month and have been offered a deal with airmiles for £245.00. We can afford this but wondered whether all food and drinks etc are exorbitant. Did you end up spending £50-£100 a day on food, drink, souvenirs? Not sure how feasible it is if we have to spend a fortune!
It depends to what extent you want to economise - you can try to get to a supermarket and make your own rolls etc, drink only water, but as you're eating out for 3 or 4 days then yes you'll get through £50+ a day.
The food and drink side is not just exhorbitant, the food is vile, problem is ou have a captive audience.
We went there for 2 days in August, a macdonalds style burger and chips meal cost around £50 I recall. You'll probably end up having to buy at least one meal, but try to get as much picnic style stuff as you can. I recommend bringing stuff in from UK in your suitcase - apples, crisps, nibbles etc. And fill up a bottle of water in the hotel. Small bottle costs approx £2 each in park!!!!
we would be staying at the Cheyenne so breakfast is included but it isn't self catering. I had a feeling it would be fairly costly for MacD type food. I guess we just need to do our sums and work out if we just bite the bullet. If it weren't for christmas then it wouldn't be a problem!
Is there any way you can up grade to include food, we booked hotel with company and paid £13 per adult a day and 1/2 foor kids (round about that amount). We booked charcater party for dd6 birthday and had to pay for it, we eneded up with spare vouchers so I asked one of the restuarants in the park could we use them to each lunch, they were great in the end, they converted it to euro's about 20 i think and we could have what we wanted and paid any extra that went over. I think we only used one voucher and the other one next day. I think you can order them from hotel directly and pay them. Bit of a ramble sorry,
our other worry is that because ds goes to bed soooo early ... that we will be stuck sitting in the dark in a hotel room every evening. Even if we manage to get him to have a sleep in the afternoon and stay up a bit - we are still going to be sitting there at 8pm in the dark!
A 4yo will be able to go on a lot of rides, though not all ... but there's not just rides, there's the parades etc too. Not sure you'd fill 3 or 4 days at the park though with one that age. 1 or 2 days would be OK.
Yep, I dont like studio park as much - far less to do and more big rides.
But the motor stunt show in studio park is good, as is the tram tour. There is a new Nemo ride and Cars ride for younger ones but v long queues (mine were only interested in the Rock & Rollercoaster Feat. Aerosmith...)
do you think 3 days is enough/too much to do both parks? the only reason we considered 4 nights was because they are doing a 4 for 3 deal but it does seem like a long time unless we hop on the train into paris for a day
we easierly filled 4 days when we went with our then 2 year old and 5 year old. They went on rides several times, its a small world must have been ridden at least 20 times!!!!
if the extra day is free go for it. we used day 4 as an extra day to do things in we had either loved or missed out before.
There is a hypermarket at the val de europe but not sure how easy that is to get to without a car. it was about a 5 min drive from the parks.
We spent a whole day in the studio park and the other 3 in the main park. Both DD's still talk about it loads, and thats a year on.
queues are not too bad, make sure you get fast passes for some rides and do use baby swap if you or dh want to go on rides the little one can't go on, it means you don't have to queue twice. We went with friends and the mums ould have the children whilst the men queued and then once they'd been on we'd go straight to the front of the queue and go on. rather usefully it tells you how the long the queue will be and we found these figures tended to be higher than they actually were.
Im always recommending it but you really need to go on the disboards (cant do links but google it )Loads of info there.
We have been a few times, the last time was at Easter when we stayed at the cheyenne. Yes the food is expensive but not that bad, you can get pizza, pasta etc fast food in the park but it is mainly chips, hot dogs, burgers etc. Take bits from breakfast to keep you going at lunchtime then you will only need to buy one meal a day, I even took sandwich bags this time ! Take snacks/drinks from home too to keep the costs down.
