Since Disneyland Paris surprised everybody with the announcement that the sale of Annual Passes will be paused until further notice, the most popular question we have been asked is when will the sale of a new Disneyland Paris Annual Pass return? Today, we have heard some promising information that Disneyland Paris is about to launch a whole new range of Annual Passes in the coming days.
Check out our guide and discover is the new Disneyland Pass worth it?
When will the Disneyland Paris Annual Pass Return?
Disneyland Paris Annual Pass will return on the 19th of July!
Who can currently purchase the new Digital Disneyland Paris Annual Pass?
- Annual Pass holders who are within their renewal period
- Current Annual Pass holders will be able to upgrade to the new range in person from July 19th. The cost of the remaining days on their pass will be deducted from the cost of the new pass (prorated)
- New sales for non-passholders will begin later this summer
- Disability Discounts remains at 25% off for the person and 1 carer. (Purchase on-site only)
- Total number of passes available will be limited.
Disneyland Paris Reservation System
New Disneyland Pass Annual Pass holders will now have unlimited access to the Disney® Parks on all eligible access days, as indicated in the validity calendar for each Pass type and until the Disney® Parks capacity is reached.
The new Annual Pass will keep the 3 date reservation system, however, the number of available tickets is increasing! The new annual passes will have access to the full capacity of the park and all available tickets into Disneyland Paris. This will avoid the frustration of seeing booked out dates on the Annual Pass reservation system, when tickets are available to purchase.
However, the ‘old’ annual pass will remain on the current ‘quota’ system, and guests may continue to experience this issue.
The New Disneyland Paris Annual Pass
The new Disneyland Paris Annual Pass range will now be composed of 3 passes:
- Disneyland Pass Bronze Annual Pass €289
- Disneyland Pass Silver Annual Pass €499
- Disneyland Pass Gold Annual Pass €699
The new annual pass names seem fitting that the 2024 Olympic Games will be held in France.
This new range would be the first digital Disney Annual Pass at Disneyland Paris, providing guests the possibility of registering completely online. Physical cards will still be available, however, guests will be required to visit Disneyland Paris, as the latest news suggest they will no longer be shipping physical Annual Passes to guests.
Disneyland Paris Annual Pass Benefits Updated
The benefits of an Annual Pass is always a key deciding factor for guests and our first information tells us that they will unfortunately be reduced to what guests have come to expect currently. In return, there would be an increase in the number of possible simultaneous reservations, as we have seen in the Disney parks within the USA.
Disneyland Annual Passholders will also have the chance to attend 4 AP Parties each year, with each party focussed on the seasons at Disneyland Paris. The first AP Party will be on the 29th September.
We will also see the introduction of Exclusive Meet and Greets, several times a year, only available to Annual Passholders!
Bronze Annual Pass
- 170 days a year
- NO discounts
Silver Annual Pass
- 300 days a year
- 10% discounts in shops and restaurants
Gold Annual Pass
- 365 days a year
- 15% discounts in shops and restaurants
- Parking Included
- PhotoPass Included
- Extra Magic Time included
Annual Pass Benefits Removed
A number of Annual Pass benefits have been removed from the overview image released today. Most notoriously these include…
- Bag Storage
- Wheelchair / Stroller rentals
- Privilege Tickets
- Discounted Park Tickets
- Hotel Discounts
- Dedicated Entrances
- Reserved Areas for fireworks and shows
- Infinity Parking
We’ll have to wait until the 19th of July to see if this is the full list of Annual Pass benefits.
It is also important to note that this new range will completely replace the old one: it will no longer be possible to renew your Magic Plus, Infinity, Discovery or Magic Flex pass as soon as it is released.
What will happen to my current Annual Pass benefits?
If you already have a Disneyland Paris Annual Pass you will keep some benefits for the complete duration of your pass. This includes Privilege Tickets, Extra Magic Time, and discounts.
However, some general benefits will be removed from July 19th. This includes Annual Pass entrance, Infinity Parking, Rental discounts, bag storage etc.
The VIP Viewing areas for Infinity Passholders will also be removed from the 1st of August.

DISNEYLAND PASS AVAILABILITY
As we look to provide a magical experience for all our guests, there will be a limited quantity of Disneyland Passes available for purchase. It is therefore possible that one or more types of Pass may become unavailable during certain periods of time.

To thank them for their loyalty, upon the launch of this new programme, Disneyland Passes will only be available for purchase by current Annual Pass Members:
– If the Annual Pass is set to expire, you can renew onto a Disneyland Pass online, between one month before and one month after the expiration date. You will then receive a personalised email soon.

Throughout the year, surprises will be arriving for Annual Pass and Disneyland Pass Members, including unique encounters with Disney® Characters and exclusive events.
From September 29th, the unmissable Annual Pass Events will be making a big comeback! And what’s more, from now on, we’ll be bringing you new and exclusive events four times a year, inspired by your favourite themes.
So, mark your calendars for the event sales opening at the end of August and stay tuned to find out more soon!
Please note that certain complimentary services that were available in addition to the Annual Pass benefits, such as access to priority parking, a dedicated entrance to the Disney® Parks, free luggage storage and kennels and stroller and wheelchair rental, will no longer be available from July 19th 2023, and VIP areas from August 1st 2023.
