Hoping to go October 2010. There are 7 of us. 2 adults and 5dcs (10, 9, 7, 3 and 1). We are in Scotland and would prefer to fly rather than drive. Also would prefer to have us all in one room/apartment if possible.
As far as I can see, Davy Crocket ranch looks the best accommodation for us but how would we manage to/from the airport/park without a car? Does anyone know of any other accommodation served by shuttles?
Any advice/tips gratefully received by this Disney virgin
Hi Ceolas - I've not stayed in the Davy Crocket ranch, but there is a shuttle bus between the different accommodation/hotels and the park, so not having a car is not a problem. Also, when we went 9 years ago and flew, there was a shuttle bus from the airport, but it would be best to check that this is still the case.
Thanks 2madboys. I just wonder if any of the other hotels can accommodate us together though? Taking 2 rooms is not a problem on its own, but will probably work out more expensive. Also, the VEA shuttle I looked at didn't seem to serve DC...
We flew from Edin burgh to Paris in February to go to Disneyland. Very straightforward.
There are shuttle buses running from Charles de gaulle every half hour or so. There are signs in the airport directing you to disneyland shuttles. You queue up, little bit of pushing and shoving to get on but the worst that happens is you hang aboutfor the nexct one.
The shuttle takes you to various accommodation near and in the resort.
We booked the shuttle in advance along with our flight. (We did it all through disney as it happens)
You would really have to have a car at Davy Crockett though. Even if you could get a bus to drop you at the entrance, you might still have a trek to your cabin. It is basically a mahoosive static caravan park.
If I recall, the drive from CDG airport is only about 50km and is mostly motorway so I think you would be fine if you hired a car.
