    Default Planning a Trip To France ~ Need Help

    ok im looking to go to France next May.

    Anyone have any ideas on what i should expect to pay for a rtn ferry from Dover to Calais.

    there will be 2 Adults 1 3 yr old and 1 1yr old.

    ive been told the early morning ones are the cheapest.

    Can anyone reccomend any Static Caravan or chalet places Withing 30 Mins drive of Disneyland Paris??

    Also throw in any other tips you may have!!

    We will be going with her Sister and Family whos Husband will soon be a Vec-C Member.


    Cheers all

    We did Dover-Dunkerque with norfolk line last September and think we paid £30, they usually charge per car not person. Ferry was clean and empty too. We sailed out at 2am but was meant to 4am. Same on way home. Sailed put at 12am instead of 4am.

    Can help you with camping but there's normally loads and have fun, I want to go but it's getting Matt to take me. He'd rather go round the ring for a week

    Would say though best time to go is october/november and time it right and the park with change from halloween to christmas and it is so magical. The kids will love it, fake snow falling during the parade and firework display over the lake at night.

    we always use Euro tunnel, slightly dearer, but more convenient and
    quicker to use.

    It is well worth checking on the Disneyland and euro tunnel web sites
    for subsidised offers.

    enjoy.

    I've been twice at this time of year and would go same time if I went again. I would certainly recommend it with young kids like yourself for first time and when they're older take them to Florida. We did it the other way round and although loved it was disappointed but then we should of known what it'd be like. We went to Florida with my sister when she was 3 (4 week we returned) and she remembers bits of it but couldn't do alot of the rides as she was too young. She got so upset when we were leaving disney in Florida she hid her minnie mouse under the bed so we'd haveto find it. Bearing in mind we'd been there two weeks and weren't even going home we were going to the coast for a week!

    How much roughly do these Euro disney breaks cost then as we looked at one by flying or taking the euro tunnel (not with car) and it worked out very expensive, are there any cheaper ways of doing things is it cheaper taking the car with you on the ferry ? if so whats the route like as ive never driven abroad before ? Help would be much appreciated thanks as a euro disney break would be enjoyable.

    By the way 2 adults, 2 kids aged 9 & 5.
