Cruise and drive to Disneyland Paris with DFDS Seaways

This week, DFDS Seaways announced their latest Cruise & Drive break to Disneyland® Paris, with Disneyland Paris specialist and accommodation partner, Leisure Direction. The kids will be able to play their way to Europe whilst mum and dad enjoy some much deserved time out.

There’s an up to 40% discount on bookings made before 20th July and kids under 7 stay and play for free, so why not take advantage, pack up the car and take the kids on a magical trip that they will never forget.

Cruising from Newcastle to Holland on board a DFDS Seaways’ cruise ferry, the whole family can enjoy some excellent onboard entertainment to include a Kids’ Club and live shows, along with a choice of restaurants to suit everyone. After all the fun you will be ready for a good nights sleep in your comfortable en suite cabin.

Arriving into Holland, the following morning, take to the scenic European roads in your own car and travel down to Disneyland Paris, only 340 miles away. In fact people living in the North East of England and Scotland can cut over 200 miles off their journey if they sail with DFDS Seaways and drive to Disneyland Paris from Amsterdam as opposed to driving to Dover and then from Calais. You will arrive into your chosen Disney hotel feeling refreshed and ready to explore the resort.

Disneyland Paris specialist, Leisure Direction, have teamed up with DFDS Seaways to offer all 7 themed Disney® Hotels plus the 7 Selected and Associated Hotels which are all close to the two Disney® Parks and Disney® Village. Kids under 7 get free hotel accommodation including breakfast and free entrance to both Disney Parks!


Disneyland Paris is fun for all the family with rides to include the Mad Hatters teacups and Space Mountain Mission: 2, something for children and adults alike. Enjoy the daily parades with Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear and friends that take place throughout park daily. But the fun doesn’t stop after the rides shut, with a state of the art IMAX cinema, restaurants and evening entertainment, the possibilities are endless.

Disneyland Paris is also playing host to a new generation of Disney stars for one year only. The all-new generation shows and parades involve Princess Tiana in the ‘Once upon a Dream Parade’ and gourmet chef Remy(1) drives you wild with excitement in Disney’s Stars ‘n’ Cars. The new Monsters Inc Scream Academy(2) is set to be a winner for summer 2010.  Also, new for 2010, is the Disney All Stars express, jump aboard to meet all your favourite Disney characters.

After a few days of fun, take a leisurely drive back up to Holland with the sleeping beauties in the back to enjoy your relaxing cruise back to Newcastle.

Take the stress out of travel and avoid the delays and cancellations at airports by opting to travel by sea.
