    How are people able to do this if they don’t speak the language? I see the place to “change language” but when I change language, I just get taken back to the US or UK site. Any trick I’m missing? Thank you!

    Either call, or know where the buttons are/do speak a foreign language

    the layout of all the Disneyland Paris websites is the same.
    Example booking 2 adults, 4 days, Santa Fe Hotel, March 2019
    Open the USA version of the website
    Now in a different tab / window open one of the European websites for example www.disneyparis.fr (the French website
    Do the dummy booking first on the USA website
    At each stage, repeat each step on the French website

    Many European language words are very similar looking to their English translation
    You can also copy and paste words or sentences into Google Translate

    If you right click your mouse button there should be an option to translate into english

    If you use Google chrome there's an option to translate. I've booked over the phone on another countries offer before now but booked online on Sunday under the German/Italian/Spanish offer and only paid the 15% deposit whereas I've had to book over the phone before to avoid paying the full balance before now. Also went through topcashback so hoping for a 4.5% cashback (fingers crossed!).

    I only book via English-speaking sites, such as Ireland. And I had to call to book the Irish deal, as my credit card never let me do it directly via the website.

    Just booked the UK package last weekend online. Not a different language but no credit card issues here.

    When I call the German Disney hotline and say that I would like to book the Spanish offer (for example) they will do it with you over the phone.

    I did this some times and it works perfectly.

    Yep, they don't mind booking you under another country's offer at all.

    Well they used to, but they aren't allowed to mind ;) so now they don't anymore, they'll get a fine if they do
