I've been quoted 569 each for flights from Manchester, 4 nights at the hotel Cheyenne and 4 days 2 park tickets, and the VEA shuttle.

I've never been to DLRP before so don't know if this sounds like a good deal or not?

This is through thomson and is slightly cheaper than Disney itself.

Our dates are October 29th - November 2nd

thats going to be a really busy time at DLP - all French schools, and some UK schools, and a lot of other European countries schools on holiday at the same time.

How much is it if you do it yourself ie the hotel/park tickets through DLP direct, no transport.

Then look at the flights yourself from Manchester and book them with the airline direct.

Usually that works out cheaper than going through a travel agent and booking your travel along with your hotel/park tickets for DLP.

Personally, I think the price you have been quoted is expensive, but if you can only go in school holiday time, the flights may already be expensive.

Unfortunately we are limited to that week as boyfriend can't change his holidays at work.

I will have a look at pricing it up myself, thanks for the tip :)

Hi we are from Manchester but are flying from Liverpool in March and did the same last year. The flight times aren't quite as good but it's much cheaper to fly from Liverpool. Usually the only flight is around 5pm but for us with 2 young children it works out quite well, we can have tea when we arrive and off to bed ready for a busy few day ahead!

Thanks for the advice ill have a look at prices for liverpool too :)

Just curious why all the schools are on holiday at that time. My fiance and I are talking about coming to London and Paris for our honeymoon around that time this year, including a day trip to DLP.

typically English half term holidays are for a week in October, and usually include Halloween. This is also the case for French school holidays (but they have longer school holidays at that time of year).

All French schools have a 2 week break at this time - They have holidays roughly every six weeks - This year it's from 19/10 - 4/11 :)

That site is so wrong, it hasn't taken into account the changes made last Nov

I always go on the official Education National site which is government run

http://www.education.gouv.fr/pid2505...ostal+ou+ville

If people are basing their holidays on that they will be suprised ....

DLPdaft 01-23-2013 05:02 PM

thanks for that link Carrie - I've bookmarked that one :).

Just been comparing and unfortunately it doesn't look like anything is considerably different.

If we were going the week before or after we could get it 150 cheaper but unfortunately we're stuck :/

But on a lighter note....

Does anyone know roughly when halloween party tickets are released?

And also can anyone recommend a good reliable website to buy them from?

We'd love to go if we manage to get tickets :)
