  1. Hi there me and my daughter are going to DLP in July I will be getting a magic plus annual card and was going to get her a annual card but a flexi magic as she is only 4 would she be able to come in to extra magic hours with me as a guest etc?

    • Hi Michelle,

      I’m afraid only the infinity holder would gain extra magic time unless you were staying onsite in a Disney hotel. There have been instances where Cast Members have allowed people through with the Infinity holder but these are exceptional & shouldn’t be relied upon.

      Kind regards

  2. Hi I have 3 disabled children I would love to come to Disneyland Paris been concerned about the cast as we would need to stay in one of your hotels and then with the mission to the parks on top and wondering if there any deal available for November 2018

    • Hi Carol,

      We don’t have access to deals on this site. You would be better talking to one of the live help agents on the disneylandParis.com website. They will talk you through everything to put your mind at ease. A quick note though that each of your disabled children will be entitled to take in a free carer each every day so that will save on ticket prices.

      Kind Regards

  3. Hi there,
    Is EMT also available for use with discounted friends and family tickets bought on the day by an annual pass holder?

    • 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.
