Hi Gill,

If you take along a Doctors letter dated within the past 3 months before travel detailing you need assistance then you will be entitled to a pass (either green or orange) depending on the severity & help required. You woud each need your own letter (unless you can find a doctor to do all 3 in one letter).

Kind Regards

Hi Felicia,

The rules regarding free carers & green cards is a bit of a mess this summer.

DLP introduced new criteria for disability passes this summer. The green pass now requires a Blue Badge or proof of a government issued DLA benefit such as PIP/DLA. Any proof of these must be dated in the last 12 months. Do you have either of these?

They also accept a medical certificate from your doctor dated within 3 months of travel but the level of pass given will be at the discression of the CM looking at your evidence.

So, that is what the new rules stated above BUT we understand that very recently they are reverting back to the old system where a doctors letter stating illness, problems caused & carer assistance is all that is needed.

I would therefor advise that you take as much evidence as you can but the doctors letter is the best. Also if you have DLA/PIP type letters, carers allowance letters, diagnosis letters or care plans then also take these & let the CM you talk to understand you NEED a green pass & of course a carer.

You can also ask explicitly from the Special Care team at DLP before you go by emailing them on

dlp.cro.special.need@disneylandparis.com

I hope that helps

Kind Regards

Hi Roisin,

The official rule is that the Green Pass entitles 4 people to be placed with the Pass holder but this is flexible & in the hands of the CMs discression. When you are getting your green pass you need to alert them to the fact that you have other small children who, for obvious reasons couldnt be split up from you. If you also make the case that your Son would be distressed without your whole group being together then there should be no issues with you all being named on the pass.

You will be given access to different queue lines with little or no wait or given a return time for rides & meet n greets.

You will have a great time I’m sure!

Kind Regards

Hi Emma,

Firstly, don’t worry, you will all have an amazing time! Our son has Autism & ADHD & although it is challenging, we all still have a great time.

You need to take a DLA award letter dated within the past 12 months. Is it high rate care? If so this will be sufficient for a green pass. If lower then the paediatricians letter would help especially if they candetail his needs such as avoiding queues etc. This is what we have taken every time & been given green card.

There are specific areas for disabled guests to watch shows/parades etc & for meet/greets. For meet/greets you may be given a return time which will allow you to go do something else until your time is due for having the meet without queueing or at most 5-10 minutes.

You will speak with a Cast Member at Town Hall or Donalds Desk to get your green or orange pass, you should get the green pass with DLA letter & paediatricians letter. Tell the Cast Member all the problems you think you will face & they will assist with the correct pass & more info.

While I’m here, i know you said you have already booked but having the DLA letter entitles your son to have a FREE CARER each day. If you have booked a package you could be entitled to the cost of YOUR ticket cost back (as you will be his carer).

If you need any further info feel free to ask & try not to worry. You WILL have some testing moments but at the end of the day it will be magical. As i said, our son has his own issues & it can be damn frustrating at times (it’s his way or the highway) but the good will far outweigh the bad & the disability pass really helps!

Kind Regards
Billy

Hi Bernie,

At this stage it isn’t 100% accurate & osures/refurbs are only known 3 months in advance. I’m afraid you won’t get a better idea of finalised dates for February until about November time onwards.


Annual Passes
Hi,

We would love to hear from you when you return & see all your thoughts on Disneyland Paris. We would love a small trip report to publish on our site for others to see some pros/cons of visitors.

I do like to see people research before going & getting the best value……. It leaves more money for treats & souvenirs!!

Annual Passes
Hi,

Once you have used your 5 per week you can use the 20% offer as many times as ypu like. There are no restrictions on the 20% offer so you can purchase as many as you need in a week.

Annual Passes
Hi Anitha,

Well, you have certainly done some mathematics! However for the Annual Pass friends discount this cannot be used on the day a person buys their Annual Pass and is then restricted to 5 tickets per day & 10 tickets in a one week period so unfortunately this way wouldn’t work for you. The cheapest option would therefor be to buy the 3-day or 4-day tickets in advance from any well known ticket seller online. If you have any children under 3 then they wold get free entry or if anyone in your party claims disability benefit or requires a carer then you could get someone in for free each day. Other than this there is no better options.

Kind Regards
Billy
