Disneyland Paris in a 7 Seater
I have recently been very fortunate to visit Disneyland Paris on a summer break. We spent the first 10 days in the South of France and then travelled up to Disneyland Paris in our Kia Carens. We stayed at the Davy Crocket Ranch. There were six of us sharing one Wooden Lodge, (AKA a wood clad caravan). We had a picnic table, some outside space and an area to do a barbeque. The outside space available is why I chose to stay at the Davy Crocket Ranch.
The pool facilities at the Davy Crocket Ranch were excellent. The shop is expensive but exactly what you’d expect from Disney. The lodge does not have a cooker, only a hob and a microwave. Therefore the majority of food in the shop is suitable for the microwave. There is a dishwasher and a microwave. However with 4 children I would prefer a washing machine instead of a dishwasher.
Breakfast is very generous. With a quarter of a baguette, a croissant, brioche roll, carton of milk, carton of juice and a variety of drinks. There is plenty of bread left to make sandwiches as part of a packed lunch to use in the resort.
Driving from the Ranch to Disneyland takes about 10 minutes. If you have a satellite navigation system and search for a “Point of Interest” and then “restaurant, McDonalds” you will be directed to a huge shopping arcade with a variety of shops, restaurants and Sea Life. We ate here a few times and it was quite reasonable compared to eating in one of the Disneyland parks. There is also free WiFi which is handy considering there is no internet access in the Davy Crocket Ranch.
If you are driving to Disneyland Paris and need to park in their absolutely gigantic car park, the prices are as follows:
- Bikes - 8 Euros
- Standard Car (including 7 or 8 seater) - 15 Euro's
- Camper vans - 20 Euro's
These amounts are valid at time of writing and are for one day and one car only. Seven seated cars are charged the same amount as standard five seat cars. If you stay in a Euro Disney Hotel you have a pass, which gives you free access to the car park during your stay.
