this will be my 2nd stay at disneyland, the first time it was just me and my wife, we stayed at the santa fe disney hotel in offseason and we got a good deal I cant remember exactly how much it was but it was cheap.
So I was shocked when I saw the prices they now want to stay in the disney hotels.....I know its peak season as its summer but still!......
We are travelling there on the 16th july for 4 days me my wife and our little one.....after seeing the shocking prices of the disney hotels we have chosen to stay at the ibis at val d` europe, it gets good reviews on this site and is only 1 stop along from disney by rail....also it is cheap! £222 roughly for 4 nights in a standard room.
You know how much disney wanted to charge for the same dates staying in the santa fe or cheyanne the two hotels which are meant to be the cheapest?,.........£937.50!
I was shocked! those 2 hotels not even as nice as the ibis as far as rooms go (santa fe is just your basic standard hotel room I assume cheyanne is the same-and to be honest although the ibis is also a standard hotel nothing fancy the rooms still look plusher then the ones we saw on our last stay at santa fe)
Now I know disney park tickets are included.....and seeing as ive just paid for them it would have saved me £256 (gone for the 4 for 3 day hopper passes-2 adults) thats still £459 difference! thats crazy to me! and I dread to think what some of the fancier disney hotels cost.
so yeah anyone think these are just a tad overpriced for what they are? (looking at the map the ibis is not even very much if at all further away from the parks then the santa fe etc....yes we have to get a train but its only 1 stop and its definitly not worth £459 extra to be able to walk there.
why do people pay these prices? are you mad? or just rich? hahaEdited: 11 July 2013, 16:27
