Annual Passes
Hi Ian,

You will need full Annual Pass before buying discount tickets. As for parking it is unfortunately true that you need to pay for parking on day 1.

Kind Regards.

Annual Passes
Hi chris,

Annual passes are individual so yes you could have 1 person have Infinity while another has Magic Flex. Many people do it this way as the Infinity holder can use their pass for discount in restaurants for up to 6 people at the table & get free parking for the vehicle etc

Annual Passes
Hi Ian,

sorry for the late reply. You can get discounted tickets for your grandparents but you would have to work it out depending on exact dates going. Each Annual Pass can get up to 5 tickets per week at a discount so you & 2 kids would be able to buy 15 tickets per week between you. As you have 4 grandparents this would leave you paying full price for one of the grandparents one day if you are going for 4 days (16 tickets). For Magic Plus you would get them at €39 each per day. For 4 days you are talking €160 for discounted tickets for 3 of the grandparents as opposed to €219 for the Magic Flex. The single day ticket if you went on day 4 for the 4th grandparent would be around €70 (20% discount as opposed to the €39 ticket) so added to the other 3 days at discount the total would come to around €200 so still cheaper than an Annual Pass. So looks like just buying discounted tickets will be slightly cheaper & if your grandparents aren’t thinking of going again within 12 months then the Magic Flex will not be of any added benefit to them at all as you will be able to use your own AP for any discounts in shops, restaurants if you are with them.

As for the Infinity being worth the extra you have to factor in the added perks which would benefit yourself & whether the extra €140 works for you. Firstly, you would get discounted tickets for €35 instead of €39 for Magic Plus. This would save you €16 for days grandparents tickets. Not sure if you would want the photopass+ (lasting 12 months) but this is free with Infinity & has a value of around €80 & saves paying €10-€20 per individual photo on rides or at meet ‘n’ greets etc. You would also get an extra 10% off all shopping (this can mount up if you, kids or grandparents are buying merchandise in the shops) & an extra 5% off restaurants in the parks (for up to 6 people at the table, ask for a split bill if 7 of you). There is also guest storage perks for Infinity holders where you can take a bag into the parks but store it throughout the day at guest storage. This costs €7 per bag per day & you can store 3 bags & have access to them when you like throughout the day. If you’re kids are young & need a stroller then Infinity allows you free rental for one of these & also, if any of the grandparents have trouble walking you can also get free wheelchair rental (valued at €20 per day per rental).

As for the car parking (I assume you have a 7 seater & just one car?) then Infinity allows you VIP parking area which can be much closer to the parks for faster access on arrival & also much less of a walk in the evening when returning home. It’s a judgement call & weighing up which benefits you feel are value for yourself.

One last thing, if any of your party have a blue badge or in receipt of DLA or PIP then you can get free carers tickets for them & passes which will help with queueing etc.

Kind Regards

Ride Closures & Refurbishments 2018
Hi Roy,

Disney tend to release dates around 3 months in advance for small closures. I can tell you that at the end of October there is currently only Ratatouille & Indiana Jones scheduled to close. Phantom Manor “may” be closed but is scheduled to open at the later end of October. You should get a detailed list of any short closures around the beginning of August for closures at the end of October.

Visitors with Disabilities
Hi Tracey,

I am from the UK & our govt issues a Blue badge. It doesn’t state what the disability is but it it is only issued to those who have a disability in our country. If that is how your state recognises disability then it should suffice. If you receive any form of state aid or welfare due to disability then you could also take an award letter dated within past 12 months. Disney do not need to know what your disability is, just proof that you have a state/country recognised disability. If in doubt you can ring beforehand for clarity.

Kind Regards
Billy.


Extra Magic Time
Hi Kez,

If you have a Magic Plus or Infinity pass & are buying discounted friends/family ticket then YES you will all gain access to EMT & also all be permitted through the VIP entrance at the turnstiles.

Kind Regards.

Princess for a Day Makeover
Hi Cara,

The Princess for a Day makeover is only for guests aged 12 & under as this is the maximum size dress which Disneyland Paris sell. The reason for this is so that younger children are not confused & mistaking older children or adults as real Disney princesses! If you were very small for your age then you *may* fit into an age 11 or 12 dress but I would think they may be strict if you are too tall.

Kind Regards

Hi Daniel,

just to update you incase you hadn’t heard, but Disney have changed the criteria for carers tickets & disability passes this week. You now need to take with you your DLA or PIP award letter dated within the last 12 months. You can also show a Blue Badge as proof. A doctors letter alone may now not be enough to get the free carers ticket.

Kind Regards
