Annual Passes Block Out Dates

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

APMagicPlusDisneyland Paris has release the block out dates for the Annual Discovery , Magic Flex and the Magic Plus passes.

The Magic Plus pass only has a couple of block out dates. All around the Christmas and New Year holidays as well as the Halloween week and on November the 1st. If no visits planned around that holiday this Magic Plus pass is perfect for the fans that used to have the Dream pass. The price difference is minimum, only missing out the possibility to go on those big holidays.

The Magic Flex pass will have some more holidays on the block out list, as well as a collection of busy weekends. All of October an December weekends will be on the lists, among some other dates. See picture for the full list.

APDiscoveryAPMagicFlexThe Magic Flex is really only for those able to go in the low seasons as summer holiday, many other weeks and most weekends are on this pass block out list. See picture for the full list.

Don’t forget, until 27 march you can still buy the old Dream pass and it will be valid for all days until you have to renew it and either take the Magic Plus or the more expensive Infinity pass.

Annual Passes Price Boost

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

AP-DLP-ParisIt was rumored, but now became reality, the Annual Passes price boost. Four new tiers are offered with the new passes, each bearing their own new name too.

The highest of the tiers is the Infinity pass. This Annual pass will enable you to go to the park whenever you want. It will grant you entrance to both gates on 365 days a year. This pass is the replacement for the former Dream pass. The Dream pass was available for €223,– but the new pass will set you back almost 80% more at €399,–. The new increase will give you some extra benefits like the PhotoPass, preferred parking and a dedicated entrance, among some other reportedly privileges like reserved viewing spots for parades.

Magic Plus, the second tier, will also benefit from a dedicated entrance. This AP will set you back €249,– or €26,– more then the old Dream park ticket. This ticket will grand you entrance on 350 days a years and might be the best option for those renewing their passes at a similar price as they are used to. A PhotoPass could be added for an extra €49,–. Discounts for the restaurants, shops and hotel rooms are a little lower then with the higher tier pass.

Next will be the Magic Flex. Access for 300 days a year and no access to extra magic hours, no free parking, no discount in the stores and other amenities that will be missing from this “cheaper” option.

The lowest tier is the Discovery pass. With €139,– it is the cheapest option, but it will be a adventure in itself to try to plan a visit around the 150 days the ticket will be valid.

While the price increase makes sense from a business standpoint, as AP’s used to be cheaper then a standard 4 to 5 day pass, it still hurts to see such a big jump in price.

Planning to visit Disneyland in the near future multiple times? Then consider ordering the old AP’s before the new ones are going on sale. Until March 28th you can still get the old Dream Pass for the €223,–. Even if you plan your next visit a little later in the year, this could save you some € in the long run.

A New Dragon for the 25th Anniversary

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

dragon1Disney Stars on Parade is part of the big 25th Anniversary and promises to dazzle the visitors with its new floats, new music, new costumes and the many characters that will ride on them.

The parade will premiere to the general public as from March 26, 2017.

Disney has release three gorgeous pictures. One of the dragon and two artistic renderings of Nemo and the Frozen float. The dragon looks futuristic, as it came straight from the mind of Jules Verne.

The parade will tell a story in 8 chapters, each of the chapters represented by a beautiful floats.

Chapter 1: “Discover a World of Magic”
Mickey’s and his friends, dressed as explorers of the future will open the parade.

Chapter 2: “Discover a World of Friendship”
The heroes of Toy Story celebrate true friendship and take us to infinity and beyond!

Chapter 3: “Discover an Adventure World”
Who better than Simba and Nala or Baloo and Mowgli to embody the spirit of adventure? A high rock dominates the exuberant flora of the jungle while percussion and bright colors free the wild instincts of an exotic world where, fortunately, “it takes little to be happy.”

Chapter 4: “Discover a World of Imagination”
From one rock to another, Captain Hook sits on the skull-shaped one. Peter Pan is not far off, at the helm of a ship hanging under a huge moon, very dreamlike.

nemo1Chapter 5: “Discover a New World”
You will find the huge tortoise Crush that will swim over a majestic decoration covered with coral.

Chapter 6: “Discover an Enchanted World”
The story of Disney Stars on Parade would not be complete without an epic battle of Prince Philip and the three fairies against an evil dragon.

Chapter 7: “Discover a World of Romance”
Fortunately, in fairy tales, Good … and Love always end in triumph. Contrasting marvelously with the impressive chariot that preceded it, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Belle and their respective charming princes make their entry on three graceful carriages. A romantic moment that will melt the heart of little girls … of all ages.

Chapter 8: “Discover a World of Wonders”
The Disney storybook is going to close in style with the two heroes of Frozen on the balcony of an ice castle.

D23 Brings No News For Paris

Monday, August 17th, 2015

DisneyAvatar1

D23, the biggest Disney convention held in the Anaheim convention center has come to an end. One of the many highlights is the Parks and Resorts presentation. Here fans get invited to hear about the newest updates Disney will add to their parks worldwide. As Paris fans we could only hope to get some news about our beloved park’s future. Unfortunately the presentation ended without anything for Paris. They only talked briefly about the 25th anniversary it will celebrate.

They did show the public one piece of Ratatouille Artwork. You could hear the A’s and O’s in the public, as for some this still is pretty new and many US fans either don’t follow much of the Paris park, never plan or never will get to visit the park. They also showed a picture of the new Jedi Training Academy experience. But that was it.

There is still some time before the park turns 25 years young and we can still hope to get something special for the celebration. But for now that was it.

Ten of their biggest attraction will be part of the big works. With this Disneyland Paris is going to get ready for their big 25th anniversary. Those visiting the park in the coming 3 years should inform themselves on what is being done when they go. It would be a shame if you get into the park and your favorite attraction is closed.
