A holiday to Disneyland Paris can be a pretty incredible family break as you join Mickey Mouse and his friends for parades, exciting attractions and character meet and greets.
Unfortunately, the magical packages can come with a hefty price tag; but the good news for families is that there are ways to explore the dreamy holiday spot without having to break the bank.
One way to do this is by foregoing a stay at one of the Disneyland hotels, in favour for partner hotels or cheap hotels close to the theme park.
In fact, there’s plenty of accommodation less than a ten-minute drive away from the parks; ideal if you want to keep costs down, or simply want to do a day out at Disney as part of a France holiday.
Team a cheap hotel with one of the deals and discounts on Disneyland Paris tickets , and you could see that budget stretching a little bit further.
To give you a helping hand, we’ve rounded up some of the best cheap hotels right by Disneyland Paris…
