How do you fancy a day trip to Disneyland Paris from £9.50!
I've just had an email (not from The Sun) and it had this deal listed. Now I know it means buying The Sun but needs must and all that :D
You need to collect 10 tokens from The Sun to get a one-day trip for a family of four to Disneyland Paris, including a return P&O ferry crossing, for just £9.50.
The offers valid for a day trip between 9 Jan and 28 Mar '12, though there are some exclusions. Your application must arrive by Fri 23 Dec.
The price depends on when you go. It's £9.50 if you go on a Mon or Tue, or £19.50 on other days, although if you want to go at half term (13-17 Feb) it's £29.50.
Up to four people can go, with at least one 'adult', and not more than two 'adults'. Adults are classed as over-11s.
If this sounds like it's for you, read on for full info on the offer, and see the step-by-step How do I get it? rundown...
What's the deal?
Collect 10 tokens from The Sun (30p weekdays, 60p Sat) from Sat 19 Nov - Fri 9 Dec, and you can get a cheap day trip for a family of four to Disneyland Paris.
The deal includes entrance for each person to both parks, plus a return P&O ferry crossing. As adult Disneyland tickets alone are usually £51 each, it's a fantastic saving. It's cheapest if you don't mind getting there and back in a day.
You can upgrade the day-return ticket to come back the following day for an extra £37 (£30 + £7 booking fee) per car by calling 0844 686 2463 from Saturday to reserve your spot before sending the vouchers.
Tokens are being printed in papers Mon - Sat until Fri 9 Dec, so Tue 29 Nov is the last day you can start collecting to get them all. The offer's valid for a day trip between 9 Jan and 28 Mar '12, though see below for exclusions.
How much does it cost?
The price varies by when you choose to go (watch out for exclusions, and add £30 to travel back the following day):
Monday or Tuesday: £9.50
Other days of the week: £19.50
Half-term (13-17 Feb): £29.50
Excluded dates: 12, 18, 19 February.
The offer's valid for outbound ferries departing from Dover between 00:01 and 6:40am, and a return ferry from Calais between 20:40 and 01:40, for travel on the same day. It's an extra £30 per car if you want to travel outside these times.
You need to choose three preferred dates on the form, though one must be a weekday. You'll then be allocated a specific day for your visit.

What to watch out for

Things to consider
It's about a three hour drive to get from Calais to Disneyland, so be prepared for a long day out. Parking at Disneyland Paris isn't included (€15 per day unless you're staying at a Disney Hotel).
Save on snacks - take your own. Disney has confirmed that you can also bring your own food and drinks into the park with you (excludes alcohol), so you can save cash by stocking up on snacks before you go.
Other fees not included. This doesn't include other costs such as fuel or toll charges. It's worth noting that if you don't travel on the outbound ferry, your return reservation will be cancelled. You can't make any amendments once you've booked.
There's max. one application per household, subject to availability, and the offer's non-refundable and non-transferable.
Hope someone can take advantage of this :D
