Thanks for the review Pirate Willy. We have been twice and agree that it is too busy at the weekend to really enjoy it.
and as train station at front of park going to paris for two days as well
Looking at the deals there are some partnership hotels nearby that have a shuttle bus to the parks. He also wants to visit Paris.
Has anybody stayed at any of these hotels ?
Hotel l'Elysee Val d'Europe
Adagio City Aparthotel
Radisson Blu Hotel
Vienna International Dream Castle Hotel
Vienna International Magic Circus Hotel
Algonquin's Explorers Hotel
The trip would be 3 days midweek flying from Liverpool
Anybody have any hints or tips or could share their experiences?
Thank you in advance.
The following resources might help:-
General hotel classifications - http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/ecc/docs/hotel_establishment_classification_EU_en.pdf PAGE 17
http://en.parisinfo.com/guide-paris/tourisme-handicap-/You could contact them to ask which of these hotels have the LABEL TOURISME ET HANDICAP around Disneyland Paris
http://en.parisinfo.com/uploads/f4//brochure-ath-gp.pdf although in French only gives the definitions as to what the LABEL TOURISME ET HANDICAP means in practical terms (you'll need to enlarge this!!)
http://fr.franceguide.com/Voyageurs/Tourisme-et-Handicap/Moteur-de-recherche-Tourisme-et-Handicap/has hotel listings.
You then need to select the following options - box 1 which type of handicap applies to your son (and remove those that don't apply) select Les regions, entering the region ILE DE FRANCE in box 2 then put the word HOTELS in box 3, and press RECHERCHER in box 4. You should get a long list of hotels divided into several pages ... but they don't seem to appear just as 'Ile de France' so you'll have to work through them - get a cuppa before you start - to see if any of the hotels that interest you appear in that list.
My adult son has Aspergers but is very mobile so access and getting around is not a problem. We quite like the look of the Explorers and Attractiontix seem to be very competitive. Our stumbling block at the moment is flights from Liverpool. They used to do early morning flights to CDG but we can only find late afternoon flights.My daughter had a look at Easy Jet.(I think that was the airline) but they don't go up to July yet The alternative would be Manchester but that pushes up the price for 4 adults travelling.
We will have to keep investigating.
Edit...just received an email back from them...80 Euros each way for 5 persons
All worked out OK with RS Transports although our anxiety was over which gate to meet them and the fact that they arrived late. The journey to the hotel was a bit scary owing to the driving of our driver (got us prepared for the rides though !)
Hotel very swish. Rooms good. Marcos pizza big enough for 2 to 3 people depending on how hungry you were. Breakfast a bit crowded but lots there to eat. Didn't use the restaurant as we ate in the parks.
For the hotel pool men need to wear Speedos. If you don't have a pair there is a vending machine to purchase.
Reception staff rang RS the day before departure to confirm pick up. Small amount of tourist tax to pay on arrival at Reception.
No supermarket nearby to stock up.All horrendously expensive, mainly fast food( the equivalent of a MCD meal for 5 cost 50 Euros) and minimal healthy fare and the French didn't seem over keen on the Brits.
Rather rude and despite having a special assistance pass and arriving back at the ride at the allotted time, a large French family were given access ahead of us. Par for the course during the holiday.
Very impressed with Easyjet. Hadn't flown with them before and had heard horror stories. On time, plane clean and more legroom than I am used to.They now pre allocate seats so don't be fooled into paying for allocated seating unless you want to sit somewhere specific. We were all seated together same seats there and back. No mad rush to get on.
Got tickets from Attractiontix and saved a lot. They email you a voucher and you exchange it for the proper tickets. 4 days for the price of 3. Worked fine.
Apart from Hbrac, has anyone else used them and how did it work out?
