    Am planning a trip for probably next year, but like to do my research into different things first.
    Not that its a big deal, but question 1: is there tea or coffee making faciluties in Sequoia Lodge rooms?

    2. Is there any particular shuttles or shuttle services that anyone can recommend to get from airport or train (depending on if i go by air or from uk from the chunnel) We don't plan on having a car.


    3. Does anyone know if any of the Paris Disney hotels have something like a 2 bedroom type room. Not that its important, probably best to stick to 2 normal rooms, but am curious.

    Thanks for the assistance. Never been to Paris Disney, only ever been to Florida.

    For transfers, check out ezyshuttle and rstransfers both very reliable :)
    Dont think sequoia have tea/coffee facilities but you can request them for a small fee or maybe request kettle and bring your own goods!

    If you get the train, it'll take you directly to the park gates so you wouldn't need to worry about a shuttle.

    If you fly, I'd recommend both ezyshuttle and RS Transports.

    The only Disney resort that has 2 bedrooms at DLP is Camp Davy Crockett. It's much further away from the parks though and there is no shuttle bus so it's probably not worth it for you.

    The Explorers hotel (Good neighbour) has rooms with separate bedrooms. It might be worth looking at. It's close to the parks and has a frequent free shuttle bus service.

    Both Sequoia Lodge and Cheyenne have rooms that connect with a door. You could get two rooms next to each other and open the doors in between them. I don't know if the other hotels have them as well, but you could check when you book.

    Everyone's answered your questions but just FYI as I see lots of Americans (sorry - I'm assuming you are here, correct me if I'm wrong) saying "Chunnel"

    But the EuroTunnel is the car transport, if you're not renting a car you'll be taking the Eurostar (passenger train). Two different services leaving from and arriving in different places.

    Don't want you to book the wrong thing! So when it becomes time for you to book make sure you google Eurostar!

    A lot to think about and plan at this point yet. Is good to know that the train takes you right to the Disney area. I guess a taxi from the train station to The Explorer (if we stayed there) wouldn't be completely unreasonable. DCR probably not the one to stay at as there wouldn't be a car. Just have to decide if we stay on site or off site. Plenty of time yet to decide, but lots to think about. Thanks for all your help.

    You can get a free shuttle to the Explorers hotel

    If we stay at Explorer's hotel we would undoubtedly take the shuttle, but out of curiosity, How far is it in walking time to the parks? As I say, just curious.

    its about 25 minutes walk, down through the Santa Fe and along by the river Rio Grande, then by Lake Disney into the Village and then into the parks.

    Not unreasonable if I was feeling energetic. Not as far as I thought then. Course the only Disney i've been to so far was in Florida.

    Disneyland Paris resort is very compact - ie from the gate of the main park to the gate of the Studios park is less than 5 minutes walk, and from the gates of the Studios park to the Village is about 2 minutes walk :). It takes no longer than about 15 minutes stroll from the furthest away onsite hotels, the Santa Fe and Cheyenne, to the Village and parks at DLP.

    Thank you for making this clear. As an expat living in Europe but not the UK, I never could understand how people got over to Paris with cars/ or without. Perfect post.
