If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland Paris with children it’s important to choose the right accommodation, so we asked Katie Edwards from Disney specialists WelcomeToTheMagic.com (www.welcometothemagic.com) to give us the low down on the Disney’s self-catering option – Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch.
Says Katie: “This collection of log cabins is part of the Disneyland Paris Resort, but set in its own Swiss Family Robinson-style location surrounded by woodland, yet with loads of its own facilities to keep families wowed.

“The ranch is made up of log cabins set in clusters of 50-100, yet despite the numbers everything feels peaceful and remote. This part of the park is not served by the free shuttle buses that operate around the resort so you do need a car. You can park your car next to your cabin and parking at the Disney Parks is free (just a 15-minute drive away)
“Each cabin has two bedrooms and sleeps up to six people. There’s a double bedroom, bunk beds and a convertible sofa. The bathroom has a bath and the kitchen comes fully equipped with a fridge, microwave, hob, kettle, dishwasher and washing-up kit.
Inside a lodge
“We thought that the cabins may simply be a place to sleep, but there is actually loads for families to do together and many activities which are free of charge.
“There’s a heated indoor tropical swimming pool, indoor tennis courts, adventure play areas and even an Indian camp with teepees.
“We loved the option of self catering, but with Disney still on our doorstep. We liked that when the kids went to bed we could relax in the lounge area or enjoy a drink outside!
“If you’re driving to Disneyland Paris or have younger children then you should definitely consider Davy Crockett Ranch – there is lots to do, good accommodation and the ranch offers excellent value for money. There’s generally a discount or free nights offer available so worth checking for deals before you book!”
