Disneyland Paris Announces Annual Pass Restructuring and Price Hike

In the wake of the announcement that The Walt Disney Company are planning on buying out the Disneyland Paris Resort, they are planning to raise the price of Annual Passes across the board from March 29th.

This has been rumoured for a long time, with the most expensive Annual Pass costing just €223 ($236) for a full year, making it a very inexpensive place to visit compared to the US parks.

The new price breakdown is as follows:

  • Discovery: 150 days for €139 (US$147)
  • Magic Flex: 300 days for €189 (US$200)
  • Magic Plus: 350 days for €249 (US$264)
  • Infinity: 365 days for €399 (US$422)

This is a departure from the affordability of the old pricing tiers, as below:

  • Classic: 200 days for €135 (US$143)
  • Fantasy: 320 days for €179 (US$189)
  • Dream: 365 days for €223 (US$236)

To offset the insane price rise, they will be including parking and Photopass in the Infinity pass, not unlike Disneyland California Signature & Signature Plus passes.

As an added bonus to the Infinity pass, guests will now get a discount on Disney hotels of 50%, with 40% off with Magic Flex and Magic Plus passes.

What do you think of the price increase? Let me know in the comments.

    You say “making it a very inexpensive place to visit compared to the US parks” I think probably because there is a lot less to do in Paris. However, with that said, the entertainment options are being stepped up along with rides including Big Thunder Mountain and Star Tours. Could be worth the extra cost.

      Hi Oliver,

      That’s true, I’d really like to hope they’re going to step up the attractions to add extra value to the price increase.

        Hi Ste,

        If assuming Disney purchase the rest of the park, I would expect some big announcements, either at this year’s or the next D23. I think they know this park has potential and they can explore a lot of the un-used land that circles the park.

        Maybe a Marvel land perhaps?

      Hi Tim,

      Yes, totally forgot that Ratatouille was a thing. I stand corrected!!

      Sorry about that, that’s what I get for typing things up from the top of my head!

      Thanks for pointing this out!

    Well at first sight I was a little bit unhappy about price increasing but ‪if we take a closer look, the Infinity pass finally rewards steady customers notably with the events priority and car park VIP location and at the end of the day I think discounts are really worth it ! I mean, if you only go once to the park and rent an hotel room (-50%) you already made your pass profitable so… not that bad actually ! Moreover you often go to the parks it’s quite a good thing !

    The prices are still a greater than 50% discount from Disneyland Anaheim prices. I paid $459 for the SoCal Annual Pass. The equivalent Paris AP is the Magic Flex: 300 days for €189 (US$200). It’s even more expensive if you don’t live in SoCal since you’re bumped to the Deluxe AP. Enjoy it for now. Paris is unlikely to get more expensive unless the Parisians start loving Disney. They needs a Cars Land or Star Wars Land to juice attendance.

    My buddy and I are planning a trip to Paris Disneyland this summer. How or who can we speak with to secure a pass now? Or is there an answer place where we can get help for the resort, hotels and pass? THANK YOU

    This is good news. Disneyland Paris is such a beautiful resort and it deserves the love that the other parks are getting. Just really hope Disney will soon expand on the resort. I personally think they need to add more European culture to the park as it lacks a lot of this culture such as the Beauty and the Beast ride that’s coming to Tokyo Disneyland and of course a Frozen land to represent Scandinavian culture. This way they can truly bring the magic home as well as bringing in some popular franchise.

      Would that not create the same issues that Disneyland had with California Adventure where people might not care about the European looks to those stories because they have the real things within driving distance. It reminds of the issue they had with designing the castle in Paris, how can you build a Disney castle that compares to the real ones in Europe. They should think outside the box and have attractions that are not distinctly European such as Mulan, Moana, or Lion King.
