Its Val d'Europe.

I think you can book a shuttle to it from the hotels and its about 2E per person or you can get the train (its about 2 stops I think)

Ouuu I wouldn't mind knowing this one!!! Also are they just expensive shops or are there some bargains to be had (just so I know how much room to leave in my case!) :thumbsup2

I thought they were a bit expensive type shops personally. Although I could have spent some good money in Auchan supermarket.

We used the shuttle bus from the Sequoia Lodge last week, 5 euro return per adult, they come pretty quickly (within 15 - 20 minutes) when called (Concierge will do this at your hotel), when you want to return you just walk back to the Welcome Centre and they will ring the shuttle for you.
Last year there was also a free bus (if you showed your hotel easy pass) from the bus station, this wasn't mentioned to us this year and we didn't want to use the train.
As far as shops go, there was some good bargains to be had in the outlet village and some sales on in the shopping complex, we just loved the Auchan Supermarket!

Does the bus go to any hotel and does it stop at the supermarket? Anyone know what time the last bus is aswell? Tempted to pop here and pick up some snacks.

As far as I know you can request the Shuttle Bus (it's more like a mini-bus) from any of the hotels, not sure what time they start running or finish. They drop you at the Welcome Centre in the outlet village, we never then found a short cut to the Supermarket but I'm sure there must be one. We just either walked around the car park and into the shopping complex or the second time we went we were looking for bargains so went through the outlet village first and made the supermarket our last stop. It's a great place for picking up drinks and snacks. We got 8 cans of Orangina Tropical for 3.50 euros, filled the ice bucket up at the hotel and stuck them in there for when we came out of the parks - bliss!!!

Thanks Diane, im sure it cant be too hard to navigate around. :thumbsup2

Think I'd feel safer getting the bus than the train.

2 lots of friends came back and said the supermarket is awesome...cheap as anything...I'm going to risk getting out of the disney bubble for a wee while and hitting that place...one friend said you could get BIG bottles of beer for 1 euro:rotfl:..I don't drink but thats good huh?:rotfl:

word of warning take bags to cart your stuff back as both set of friends said you do NOT get bags there and if you get a stash youre kinda stuck!!!:thumbsup2....

If anyone sees someone with tesco bags in ocober that will be me!!:lmao:

My friends must be too tight to pay for the bags they said there was none at all!!!:rotfl:......mind you they struggled on the train with their stuff so you think they would have bought some eh?:lmao:

they said the bought meat, baguettes, juice, drink for the adults, crisps, snacks and it was really cheap.
