Yes, I know. It’s not very rock’n’roll, using 34,000 Avios to get into Disneyland Paris aka EuroDisney.
It’s not even exceptional value for Avios points. The best cash price I could find for 2 adults and 2 children to Disneyland Paris was £206. Using 34,000 Avios (9,000 for adults and 8,000 for children) means I get just 0.61p per point.
However, as I’ve written before on Head for Points, the right redemption for you is NEVER a bad redemption.
It just seemed a wrench to pay £206, especially when I could order the tickets online (you don’t even need to ring avios.com for Disneyland Paris tickets). We’re not paying for the Eurostar tickets or InterContinental LeGrand in Paris either!
It’s not going to make much of a dent in our combined Avios balance.
I should say, to redeem myself, that I have just blown 60,000 Avios and a 241 to take my Mum to Niagara Falls next year in BA First (60,000 is 2 x one-way tickets as we will be coming back separately.) That works out at substantially better value than 0.61p per point …..
I’m not planning to do a trip report on Disneyland but I might put together a quick summary, especially on the ease of taking the RER from central Paris. I will also let you know if Eurostar Standard Premier food has improved from my horrific experience earlier in the year!
