Couple of questions
« on: April 23, 2014, 01:00:56 AM »
Thinking about going to Disneyland again like late summer but has anyone notice that sites like Expedia & Booking.com no longer sell Disney hotels? All I can find is Off site hotels. Is there a reason for this do you know? Also where is the cheapest place to get park tickets as I've also notice Expedia don't sell those either.


Thanks in advice

I can't say I've ever seen booking.com sell the main Disney hotels. We always use booking.com and the closest we've every managed to book is the ones in Magny. I'm just guessing here but maybe the fact that you cant book a "Disney" hotel with them is that Disney want to sell their hotels as packages with days in the parks. Booking.com and Expedia are specialists in providing hotel accommodation and probably not an "approved" travel agent/partner to DLP. The other way to book just a Disney hotel is to get an annual pass which is again what we do, that way you don't need park tickets as you already have one so they will sell you just a room with breakfast.

Disney only sell their on site hotels to Expedia etc during the "off" season, they never sell during peak times as they can sell their rooms themselves at a much higher return.
Have you considered staying offsite and buying annual passports? It generally works out cheaper if you are going for 4 days or more and factor in the discounts you can enjoy with an AP. I have three visits booked through Trivago all staying at the Kyriad. I have paid 258 for three nights late July, 118 for two nights in October and 130 for three nights in December all B & B. For two adults. I renewed my Fantasy AP with a Dream AP two weeks ago and got 18 months for the price of 12 from Disney, so you can see the sort of money I have saved! Disney hotels are really convenient, but I prefer to have several visits during the year and this would'nt be possible at Disney hotel prices!!
In the past I always used Expedia, but for these trips I have used Otels.com and Travel Republic booked through Trivago as they are slightly cheaper than Expedia's room only prices and with Travel Republic you only pay 1 deposit and the balance three weeks before travel. Sweet!!
Other members will be able to advise sites were you can buy reduced price tickets.

It's always worth keeping an eye on fnac.fr as they do flash sales were a two park one day ticket can be 35 and other offers like that
