To cut a lond story short we won a mini break to Euro Disney and it's proving to be a difficult thing to plan. They will provide Eurostar travel from St Pancras at 10am and back there at 10pm. Tricky.
They will provide free transfers from CDG or Orly Airports but not Beauvais.
We are broke and really want to go but are not sure what the best/ cheapest way of getting there is. Our kids are 2 and 5 so a long journey is not ideal. We are an hour north of Glasgow but could fly from Edinburgh or Glasgow or at a push Prestwick (only goes to Beauvais though- so how do we get to Eurodisney as cheaply and quickly as possible ourselves?)
If you get yourself a family railcard, it'll save you a lot. Flying from Prestwick to Stansted will cost at least £200 for all of you. I've been looking at sending DH and DS to London for the day. It was about £32 for the 2 return train tickets and then £60 for an overnight stay. If you fly to London then you still have the costs of getting from the airport to St Pancreas. It should take about 4.5hrs to get to Kings Cross from Edinburgh. If you book seats with a table then you can take some food, games and the kids might be okay with that.
We went to Beauvais and hired a car. We stayed at Eurodisney for 3 nights. Driving round the outskirts of Paris was very stressful. If I was doing it again, I'd either go to CDG or Orly.
It didn't seem that dear when we were there but there are a lot of Disney stores and DS came home with a lot of toys. The other thing we found was DS was a bit small for a lot of the rides which lead to a bit of moaning.
We drove!!!!! We took the car and it was really easy. Kids were 7 and 5. Stayed overnight at the hotel at the ferry terminal, got an early ferry, booked a cabin about 20 mins drive away. It was a great adventure and I would do it again in a minute.
We flew Prestwick to Beauvais. There's a two hour bus journey into the centre of Paris, but the bus stops very, very close to a metro station. You get on the metro (there may be one change - I can't remember) and then you arrive at Eurodisney in time for lunch.
