Smart Dining Offer

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Even during the slower weeks of the year – as currently – the peak demand in the restaurants of both theme parks can result in comparable long lines at the fast food locations and full occupancy in the buffet restaurants. To counter this effect the resort has tested a special incentive at selected counter service (aka fast food) locations in both of its theme parks as well as in one buffet location in each theme park: a 20% discount on all meals and drinks (excluding alcoholic beverages) if guests dine prior to noon or between 2:30 pm and 6: 00 pm.

While the discount is available to all guests advance presentation of the discount flyer is required at the restaurant.  However, the flyers can be found in each and every free entertainment program available at the entrances to both parks, at guest relations, Studio Services, City Hall and from various information points and cast members in the parks. As the program has been running for a bit already chances are good it will be available for a bit longer – so don’t forget to pick up your free entertainment program when entering the parks! (more…)

Everything Goofy – even the prices!

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Over the last years the resort has considerably changed its merchandising policy. In the meantime new products are rolled out more or less constantly year-round. This also means that most of the times there are some products to be discontinued and therefore offered at a discounted price – a great way for guests to reduce the costs for souvenirs a bit.

While “sales” and “special offer” signs were set up at the according merchandise displays the goods themselves – if at all – received only a rather simple additional red “special offer” tag. This seems to have changed as recently round red extra tags were spotted featuring Goofy and the bilingual statement “Goofy Price” and “Prix Dingo” – which in English respectively French is a common description for prices so low that they are already a little bit crazy or … well … goofy!

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.

Alternative airline for UK guests – UPDATED

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Since its grand opening in 1992 Disneyland Paris has been closely associated with Air France which acted as the resort’s official airline. Last year Air France was even recruited by the resort in its effort to bolster the attendance numbers by handing out free one day passports to its passengers flying into Paris (as we reported over on the Mousekingdom Blog). However, unnoticed by many flybe, a low cost carrier flying from various UK airports into Paris (using Charles de Gaule airport there) and thus a competitor of Air France on some routes, run a similar promotion for a free one day passport as well plus a 15% discount on all additional passports (even so the promotion ended prior to the Air France promotion already at the end of June instead the end of September).

The promotion must have been a success as the resort teamed up one more time with flybe later in the year, offering up to 50% discounts on 2 night packages in the Disney Hotels leading up to the christmas days (and yes, this promotion has ended as well). Looking back these two promotions seem to have been tests by the resort’s management and the UK airline whether a partnership made sense. The results of the tests? (more…)

Dine Now for Less?

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.
