    Hi

    If planning on staying at the motorhome parking, be aware that there will be no fresh water.. it's turned off during winter ..

    otherwise, sounds like a great trip :Smile:

    thanks

    hi

    i assume the shower block is still operational

    lots of questions for you as you seem to have done this

    do they shut down the fill up point at rear of toilet block and the tap in front of toilet block if so does the garage at entrance still provide water

    many thanks

    Hi Robin

    We were there Jan 2008 , it was bitterly cold .. minus several degrees during the night. Our hot air heating eats batteries so I ran the genny to top up.

    The shower block's for coach drivers .. not motorhomers, but no doubt some were using it, despite the signs..

    The fill point at the rear was shut off, the garage may have water, never checked , we had enough in the tank for three days.

    Hi Robin,

    We were very tempted after speaking to you and Michaela over the weekend. Sadly the pub field in Cheshire came out top [mainly due to budget]. Disneyland Paris next year maybe.

    Enjoy yourselves and don't get too chilly on New Years Day. :Rofl1:

    we are ready

    hi all
    no electric at disney but generator going just in case , to be fair only need electric first thing in morning , for tea and late evening so not anticipating loss of power from panels and batteries
    it is spencers 7th birthday on new years eve so anyone with children please advise as we are taking party bags and a cake , we are planning to eat out new years eve at the park restaurant where the water ride goes through it ( i think from memory it is the indiana jones ride ) as this had a good menu at fair prices .
    i understand fake snow is sprayed if no real fluffy stuff arrives .
    i will try to get a list of anyone going late november / early december so we all know who to look out for but we will be trying to pull up in front of the coach shower block as if we do not use that we will be the only ones .
    we will have alcohol on board for medisinal ( spell check please !!! ) purposes only , i understand jd is good for keeping warm but dont care as am still drinking it :thumb:
    disney by all accounts is fantastic at xmas and new year for the children and i am sure all the parents will have a great time as well
    dont forget your new year costumes :thumb:

    sorry to hear cavendish wont make it this year as would have been good, errpaul will be fine in his van once locked down and heating on just forget the no alchol rule it will be fun

    off down to praa sands , cornwall end of next week for october break and am about ready as this is the last one before new year , anyone down there send me a pm as will pick up mails while away

    Well, were booked.

    Going on the 15th nov for a few days and then back for new year on 30th december.

    Did originally get quotes for the eurotunnel from the 'cheap ferry' webstes but because of procastination we didnt book it. Came back to book the crosing this evening and found that it was going to cost about £280. Almost just paid it but decided to check directly with eurotunnel and saved over £100!! It pays to check.

    Here's to New Year 'Fun':Cool:

    Coach Driver Showers


    Good Thread Jim!

    Reference Shower Block For COACH Drivers, I was one for many years and visted euro disney. The coach park at disney is not just for coaches visiting, its also used as an overflow for paris parking as they have stopped on street parking in paris. I myself as a coach driver having been parked at Disney and attempting to use this facility have faced a long line of Motorhomers waiting to use the showers even though it states for Coach Drivers only!

    Over the years the showers have become damaged through misuse and a I have heard that this facitily may be closed down. There is a Motorway Service area close to disney that has male/female showers for a small charge.

    The point I am trying to make is that the showers are for coach drivers use only! I am sure that if 10 coaches turn up at an aire and wanted to park, empty rubbish bins and empty the coach toilet, all hell would break loose.

    Remember Coaches dont have showers aboard them! (I know, not all Motorhomes/Caravans have the shower facilities)

    Regards

    Ant

    Not a Motorhome facility but a car park where they let motorhomes stay the night @ €13 per night. They are some shower /toilet facilities that should only be used by coach drivers but everyone else use them as well.

    There is also a dump for grey/back waste that he coaches use that you can use aswell and there is also some taps for fresh water.

    When we were there at Easter last year there were about 60 motorhomes there.
