    I might get to go to DLRP this summer.

    I was going to stay off site due to high on-site prices. If I stayed onsite, I'd probably only want to go with the Disneyland Hotel.

    However, the U.S. packages are outrageous pricing, for 2 people basically comes to $1,000 per night for 4 nights, $4,000.

    However, when I price same package on UK site, it comes to a much more reasonable £1,531.20, which is about $2,200 USD. A $1,800 saving!

    Is there anyway for someone from the U.S. to book a UK package, or is that not allowed?

    Many thanks!!!

    You need to give a valid UK address when making the booking, so unless you know someone in the UK who could 'lend' you their address there is no other way round it unfortunatly

    You might want to check visitdisneylandparis.com. I am living in Germany and got the 40% discount for my stay in june which is only available in the UK. They seem to accept non-UK-resident bookings as well. Hope it works!:goodvibes

    Hi I live in Gibraltar. I booked the rooms and park entrance via the UK website and gave my in-laws address. My confirmations came through by e-mail and this confirmation serves as the hotel/park voucher too. Nothing was posted to the UK address. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I also wonder if I called the Resort in France, if they will take US reservations at a better price than the US website?

    Obviously, I just thought maybe they had different rates.

    it's not true that you need a UK address. you can book through this site
    leisuredirection.co.uk/

    and they will charge your credit card with US address and just send you an email confirmation. you will be charged in GBP and get the discounts.

    you don't get any paperwork sent to you but it is valid, when you check in you give them your numbers and all is cool.

    sorry, link is broken, i registered to share my info (we just booked a trip)

    i'm not sure what that means because i'm not from the UK. i googled it and it looks bad though.

    anyway, our trip is booked & paid for, they respond quickly to emails, and when i called disneyland paris (sequoia lodge) they had everything in order for us. thank god!

    It's something resembling bankruptcy...

    administration basically means that the company has run out of money, so they hire special people to run the company and then try to get the company to make money doing whatever is required (closing down parts of the business, selling anything that they can to make money, getting rid of staff etc). They also very often look for somebody new with more money to come and buy the company.

    If they can't sell the company and get it to make money again, then they close the company down.

    Hope that makes sense :goodvibes

    leisuredirection.co.uk/ looks great.

    However, they only let you book 4 nights.

    I wish I could do 5 nights.

    Many thanks for these resources everyone! :)
