Is this a good deal!?

My sisters university is offering a good deal to Disneyland Paris.
Even though I don't go to the Uni it looks like I'll still be able to pay and go on the trip.
Me and my sister are twins and it happens to be on our birthday, the 23rd, so it would be PERFECT timing and I've been wanting to go for AGES.
To me it looks brilliant, apart from the "coach" thing sounds a bit nausiating but I guess we can deal. Also, am I right in saying that we'd only have one full 24 hour day in Paris as we'll be travelling the 23rd and 25th by the looks of it. The only reason that bothers me is because I'd want to spend as long in each park as I can.

23rd - 25th November 2012

Come along with UPSU for a magical time at Disneyland Paris!

The trip includes return coach travel, 2 nights bed and breakfast accommodation, 2 days in Disneyland, as well as the option of spending 1 day in Paris itself and your travel insurance.

The price of the trip is £162.

The £60 deposit payment deadline is 11th October 2012 so be quick!


Please let me know what you think!

I think you could have 2 days in DLP if you travel on 23rd, are in DLP for 24th and 25th then travel overnight on 25th? If you have 2 days park tickets included, then I'd go for it - can you get the full itinerary?

It would be great way of spending your birthday with your twin though, wouldn't it .

Yeah maybe? I hope that's what it is! They haven't put enough information it's annoying haha. I'll have to email them and ask for one, I'll update you when they reply :D if you wanted to know of course haha.
YES IT WOULD. I'd cry of happiness haha I really would. I haven't been since I was 7 years old!

UPDATE: Just thought I'd let you know what I got emailed back when I asked for a full itinerary.

"The coaches will depart on the morning of Friday 23rd November, and return on the evening of Sunday 25th November/early morning on Monday 26th November. Unfortunately, I do not currently have exact departure times but imagine that it will be an early start on Friday 23rd November.

The price of the trip is £160 and includes return coach travel, 2 nights bed and breakfast accommodation, 2 days in Disneyland, as well as the option of spending 1 day in Paris itself and your travel insurance."

that still doesn't tell you how many days park tickets you have, does it ?

Not sure where you're travelling from but we've done coach from South Wales twice and it took about 13 hours, that was with Leger, a friends daughter went with her school recently from Hereford and travel time was about the same, there always seems to be a long wait at Dover but it does break up the journey, then it takes about 4 hours or so from Calais to DLP, it's a nice journey and I love the bit around CDG airport with the runways crossing over the roads and of course you get to play first one to spot a DLP road sign and then the park itself.

We did 4 day tours so had 2 full days and 2 travel days, I'm guessing you'll have most of Sunday at the park and long park hours on Saturday too, I think Sunday evening you'll be shattered and sleep all the way home.

I'd go for it, I think that's a reasonable price although it doesn't say whether accomodation is in a Disney hotel, just thinking of EMH and squeezing another couple of hours into park time.

I went on a trip like this when I was at uni. Ours was a bit more expensive though so might be different.

We got there at 2pm and had that day in the parks. We then had the next day in the parks and left the day after.

On the way home we stopped in Paris for 2 hours (dropped at Trocadero).

We stayed in the Santa Fe.

You wont get too much time in the parks but it still seems decent value.

Seems like a great deal considering it would cost our family about £2000 for accommodation in a Disney hotel, tickets and transport. Eeeek. That works out at about £400 each for a 2 night stay. So your price sounds really good
