    Just follow the signs to Disney, Head all the way in, following the signs for the coaches, pay at the barrier tell them you want to camp over night, as you drive in Look out for signs that have a picture of a "Camping Car" you will see plenty of other motorhomes (hundreds) Park up and take the moving pathway to the park which is only about 10 min away. Simple as that. :BigGrin:

    EDIT - Just noticed this is your first Post- Welcome to the Fun:thumb:

    parking is so easy at disney :Smile:

    As for route, you can choose peage, or smaller roads and avoid the tolls. I think it is about 60 quid if you opt for quickest route, but I may be wrong.

    Dover Calais is the route we chose - and found Seafrance to give us the best deal.
    When shopping online for ferry, get the price, log out, clear your cookies and do it again. You will get a different price each time:Wink:

    Disneyland Paris

    We were there last year but came from Cherbourg and went all around the north of Paris to get there - but that's not much good to you. Where I might be able to help you is when you get there. My advice is to stay in the camping park right beside Disneyland, 20 euro a night last year and it saves a lot of toing and froing from outside parks. Skips are provided on site for rubbish, toilets on site with showers but they say these are for the coach drivers who bring people to Disneyland but anyone I met there used them and that was okay. Also I would say only pay by the day because depending on how fast you get around Disneyland you might be giving them some euro for nothing to stay in the park with your motorhome. There is also an area for grey waste and toilet waste but be wary it is very open and smelly!! Don't leave anything outside your van at night because they clean the park at night and something could get swept away or dare I say it taken away! As for Disneyland itself don't get the one-day ticket for Disneyland and the area where they show you how they make the films, etc. because it will be very hard to cover both places (can't remember the second part what it is called). It's better to do it over two or more days as there is so much to see and do. Check out prices before you enter Disneyland - plenty of help around there from attendants. One final tip: If you can bring some of your own food and drink do so as it is expensive in there. Hope the above helps. Enjoy

    Disneyland update

    Stayed in the Disneyland car park for two nights last week (October 2012), and the fee for motorhomes is now 30 euros a night. We took the RER train into Paris on the first day, and it cost about 28 euros for five of us on a 45 min trip direct to Arc de Triomphe (Charles de Galle/Etoile station).

    We didnt use any of the facilities, but it was ideal and very convenient. You can only pay for one night at a time, and we had a note on our windscreen asking us to visit the ticket office to pay for the second night.

    Hi just been to Disney with our 2 kids 15 and 12!!!
    we booked ferry via direct ferries, when we go in the summer to France we only usually book one way then find a mcdonalds for free wifi to book ferry back.However we have only been for a week so booked return and payed £113 return (half term week)
    we used tolls from Calais and travelled to Disney in one go,it cost approx 34 euro_Once you get nearer to Paris there are Disney signs on the motorway. although we used satnav too..keep a look out for the signs as they are white, with the info below!!!
    You head for Marne valley.
    Once at disney they charge 30 e to camp overnight in carparks, which are fine and close to get into Disney with less walking for little ones.
    If you intend on going back again its worth buying a pass ..we bought fantasy pass as camping is then free, 20% off in shops and restaurantts and you can fastpass one ride at a time...you can return and camp free any time within a year.
    If you choose to do this you need to park outside in the layby walk in(long walk with kids) go to the pass office, have photos taken, walk back( or husband walk back to get van) and then camp following signs...If you pay for camping ,then buy a pass you dont get your 30e back.
    There are toilets to use and showers however not sure whether you can get water after the start of november!

    The good thing with camping there is when your little ones are tired , you can easily return to van,eat and rest and return to the park later for fireworks etc!

    Hope this helps, have fun
