We’ve always wanted to explore all the international parks, and with Disneyland Paris being so close to other places that interest us, it topped the list. The park is smaller than the stateside Castle parks, but truly beautiful, (THAT CASTLE THOUGH), and the perfect destination for anyone who already has an interest in visiting Europe (and who wouldn’t?!). We think that right now is the perfect time to be planning a trip to Disneyland Paris, and Europe in general. The euro is lower in comparison to the dollar than it’s been in years, making it a more affordable time to go than ever. Anyone who has read our blog knows how much we love lists, so we’ve compiled a list of ways that make Disneyland Paris more affordable than ever!
David and I are huge fans of airline credit cards – as long as you trust yourself enough to use a credit card responsibly, this is one of the best ways to be able to fly for free. We recommend the American Airlines Credit Card as our top pick, with the Alaskan Airlines Card, and British Airways being close behind. The most expensive part of Europe is getting there, so if you can do that for free, you’ll save almost $1,000 dollars per person on your trip.
-Combine it with another trip
What’s the point of going to Disneyland Paris if you don’t go to Paris? And while you’re at it, check out Reims, Colmar, and Annecy – and maybe even a few countries outside of France. You’re only a short train ride away from London as well.
-Splurge on other destinations, not food
Disneyland Paris should have great food – I mean, it’s in the food capital of the world. Sadly, it has pretty awful food – we highly recommend not booking a ton of expensive sit down restaurants in the park, and instead splurge on a side trip.
-Go during the off season
Disneyland Paris tickets are dirt cheap in comparison to WDW tickets, and if you go during the off season, they’re even cheaper.
