I am sure my 6 year old daughter would LOVE this park, so we are thinking about giving it a try for 2-3 nights in one of the UK school holidays. It is easy for us to fly into Schiphol.
I am tempted to travel in the Easter holidays (for us 5 April-20 April). Am I right in thinking that Dutch schools are NOT on holiday then? No offence, but a quiet time without queues would be lovely.
We don't mind wearing lots of layers, but would we be better waiting until the end of August (are more rides open?).
i think we would prefer to stay in the Efteling Village Bosrijk so that we have space to relax in the evening when our daughter sleeps. I notice that the apartments have a fridge and microwave, no stove (but we can work around this is there is somewhere local to buy bread, cheese, cold meat and wine).
How easy is it to get to the park by train (or bus) from Schiphol? Can we just offer Euros on a shuttle bus from the train station (which is best?). Could we hire bikes to go to a local supermarket or are there shops on the site?
Is it better to hire a car so we can go to a local supermarket and do a bit of sightseeing on our way down from Schiphol? We would happily spend a day either side of a short stay to go to the park (or drive straight there).
I welcome any other ideas or suggestions
