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.

No More Annual Passes…

… at the office inside the park as it is completely covered for renovation. The whole area is blocked of and the building is no longer accessible. Even the path in front of the building is completely blocked, forcing guests to walk right next to the Castle stage, an area that has been refurbished not so long ago.

But what about the Annual passes you might ask. Well, it has brought back to the old location outside the park at the Donald’s Desk. When you need to exchange your ticket, get a new Annual Pass or need to extend your existing pass you will have to go to the “old” location at the side of the ticket booths.

When you arrive at the Disneyland park and you are in front of the beautiful Disneyland hotel walk to the right side towards the hotel’s entrance. Just across the entrance, on the side of the Disneyland Park ticket booths, you will see a small office named Donald’s Desk. Until further notice, or until the refurbishment is finish, this will be the location to get your Annual Passes.
