Discount Shopping

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

With the Shareholders’ Club and the Annual Passports (in particular the Annual Passport Dream) Disneyland Paris has two large public programs which offer their “members” a wide array of discounts in the resort. In particular many fans are a “member” of both programs, i.e. hold shares of EuroDisney S.C.A., signed up for the Shareholders’ Club and are also proud owners of an Annual Passport Dream. As a result it can be frequently seen how these are offering both the AP Dream and the Shareholders’ Club card to the cashier in the resort’s shops asking the cast members which one gives the better discount. This “problem” should become obsolete soon since new information signs were set up next to many cashiers across the resort at the end of the last year. These signs are providing an overview of available discount options (as seen on the right) – and as that sign shows the AP Dream offers the better discount (20%) on merchandise if compared to the Shareholders’ Club card (15%).

AP Holders a.k.a. the early birds of Toy Story Playland

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

As reported the all new Toy Story Playland has proven extremly popular with guests since it opened in the past week – unfortunately resulting in longer waiting lines for its three attractions. Taking into account this and the success of the exclusive previews of the area prior to its official opening for holders of the Annual Passport Dream the resort has decided to grant all holders of Annual Passports of the resort the unique opportunity to enjoy the Toy Story Playland once again exclusively!

Well, to be correct not just once – but DAILY from August 25 till September 17, 2010! Every day in this period Toy Story Playland opens for holders of Annual Passports from 8:30 till 9:30 am so that AP holders can enjoy the area uncrowded and hop on all three rides (which are scheduled to be operating unless an unexpected technical problem might occur) without the now regular long lines.

Free Soft Drink?!

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Since 2009 Disneyland Paris has repeatedly run a promotion offering a free softdrink to be collected between 3 pm and 5 pm at selected counter service locations in the two theme parks. In fact the promotion has pretty much run continuously now with the exception of the winter months during which the free soft drink was replaced with a free hot drink.

How to get the free drink? Originally one free drink was offered with each receipt issued at a counter service location in the two parks during the morning and lunch hours. This program, while not advertised anywhere, still runs. Most lately the offer has been expanded to include receipts issued during the same time window in the shops of both parks (without any advertising as well). (more…)

Buffalo Bill getting desperate?

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show seems to continue to struggle to fill the vast arena on a nearly daily bases in the Disney Village. Despite having added “Mickey and friends” last year and the boosted advertising all throughout the resort special offers are popping up more and more often.

After special rates for cast members now a special rate for guests of the parks has been set up. As small DIN-A-4 “posters” in the windows of the ticket counters inform guests they can save up to 20 EUR with their theme park passport when buying tickets for the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show for the same day – a considerable savings that might upset quite a few Disney Hotel guests who are remainded to book tickets for the dinner show already when making their reservations for a Disney package.

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West dinner show has been presented nearly daily in the custom built arena in the Disney Village since the opening of the resort in 1992. While there were rumors about a potential replacement in 2000/1 (mentioning a potential Zorro theme for a follow-up show) the show was only tweaked over the years – so maybe it is time for a replacement to attract return visits from return guests of the resort ? What do YOU think?

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Disney Village A-Frames: Annettes DinerThe impact of the economic climate on Disneyland Paris has been discussed repeatedly and variouschanges introduced during 2009 (e.g. the late opening of the pools at the Disney Hotels or the high frequency of various special discounts and offers in the resort’s shops) have been Disney Village A-Frames: Steak Houseidentified as effects of that. However, there is another development over the past summer that seems to be “inspired” by the economic situation and the guests desire to save money – a more “aggressive” advertisement of the various set menus offered in the table service restaurants of the Disney Village.
