Show me the key Disneyland Pass information
Before we explore into the Disneyland Pass price, general admission ticket costs, specific pass holder privileges and work out if the new Disneyland Pass will save you money, lets answer the main questions guests have about the new Disneyland Pass.
Who can buy the new Disneyland Pass / Disneyland Annual Pass?
As of August 2023, the all new Disneyland Pass is available to everyone!
When the initial announcements was made on the 11th of July 2023, Disneyland Paris stated that program would be available to current (Discovery, Magic Flex, Magic Plus or Infinity) passholders from the 19th of July 2023. This changed in August 2023, where the Disneyland Pass was made available to all guests (while stocks last).
Should I replace or upgrade my (old) Disneyland Paris annual pass to the Disneyland Pass?
If your a proud owner of a Discovery, Magic Flex, Magic Plus or Infinity pass, we wouldn’t recommend you rush out and change it right away, as it will provide you with more benefits than the new pass including access to Extra Magic Time and higher shop/restaurant discounts.
You can renew (or change to) the Disneyland Pass one month before it expires. You should receive an email around this time with instructions on how to renew.
The main reason people are upgrading early is due to the new advanced registration system. Although both systems still have the 3 day limitation for booked dates into the park, the Disneyland Pass is fully integrated into the parks ticketing system. Meaning more availability for the dates your want to visit the park.
If you do upgrade early, you will receive a pro-rata credit applied to the price of your new one.

Benefits of the Disneyland Pass
One of the biggest changes between the old and new Annual Pass at Disneyland Paris are the number of benefits included within the pass. This has been huge news within the Disney community as Disney removed almost all of the benefits associated with the previous Annual Pass system.
The Disneyland Pass offers a maximum of 5 additional benefits, which include free parking, discounts in shops, discounts in restaurant, Disney PhotoPass, and access to Extra Magic Time.
Legacy Annual Pass Benefits removed…
- The dedicated entrance
- Priority parking
- Discount tickets for family and friends

- Free luggage storage
- Free stroller and wheelchair rental
- Free dog kennel
- Day tickets are no longer discounted (previously -20%)

Annual Pass Benefits Kept the same…

New benefits introduced for Annual Passholders:
- Pop-up experiences. Starting from September 2023, Disneyland Pass holders will have the opportunity to meet rare characters. The first pop-up experience included Oswald and Tinker Bell.
- FOUR annual passholder exclusive events each year. With the first held on the September 29th themed to the Disney Villains.
Free Car Parking
Firstly, all holders of the new Disneyland Pass will get free car parking. This is ideal for locals, guests who stay in offsite hotels or drive the parks.
Disneyland Paris Car Park Fees is currently priced at €30 for cars (Disneyland Paris Car Parking). This hidden cost can easily add up. On an average 3 day trip, guests driving to the parks can expect to pay an additional €120 on car parking fees, on top of your park ticket price.
Food and Merchandise Discount
Once inside the park, you can continue to save money with the Disneyland Pass. From buying that must-have souvenir or the latest instagrammable snack, passholders can save up to 15% within the Disneyland Paris restaurants and retail stores. With so much 30th anniversary merchandise and snacks, these savings can quickly add up, from saving €3 from the Mickey Soap Dispenser to saving over €20 on the latest Loungely.
It’s worth noting that at Disneyland Paris restaurants if only one person in your group has an annual pass, they can use their discount for up to a total of 6 people (including the Annual Pass holder).
One of our favourite benefits to consider is the Annual Photopass. The Photopass provides you with a digital copy of every ride photo and character meet or magic shot taken by Disney photographers during your stay. This is included free with the Disneyland Gold Pass or discounted by 10% with the Disneyland Silver Pass
Inside the parks you can find a similar Photopass priced at €74.99, however, this one only lasts for 10 days, and you would need to buy it again on your next trip!
Extra Magic Time
Access to Disney Parks before the official opening time will only be available to guests with a Gold Disneyland Pass or those staying in a Disney Hotel. This is a great time to ride big-ticket attractions or meet your favourite characters before the park officially opens.
Disneyland Paris Annual Pass Parties
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, themed to the Disney Villains, Villainous Night.
Exclusive Pop-Up Surprise Meet & Greets
Disneyland Paris have also confirmed that they will be introducing Exclusive Character Meet and Greets, several times a year, only available to Disneyland Pass Holders! The first Pop-Up Surprise included Tinker Bell and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
REMEMBER: You must register for each pop-up event and due to limited spaces, we recommend you book your space as soon as they are announced.
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.
Guests with the Disneyland Pass will still need to book an advanced registration, with a maximum of 3 booked dates at any time. However, unlike the previous Annual Pass, the Disneyland Pass will be fully integrated into the parks ticketing system. This will avoid the frustration of seeing booked out Annual Pass dates, and then seeing standard day tickets are available to purchase.
