Benefits of a Disneyland Paris Annual Pass
Free Car Parking
They are a lot of benefits and discounts you get as an Annual Pass member. Firstly, you get free car parking with an Annual Pass (except Discovery). This is ideal for locals or guests who stay in offsite hotels and 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. If you are staying off-site and stay for 4 days, this would be €120 on car parking plus €236-368 on park tickets! It’s going to be cheaper to get an annual pass!
Please be aware, that parking is free for Disney Hotel Guests with the Easy Pass supplied by the Hotel.
A Disneyland Paris Annual Pass can also save you a lot of money when you stay in a Disney Hotel. Annual Pass members can book a room in any of Disney hotels and get a massive discount. The earlier you book the better discount you are given, we have been offered anything from 25-50% discount on rooms in the past. We have just booked two stays at Disneyland Paris, so we can use these as good examples of the savings available.
Example 1 – SAVE €256.21 per night
Firstly, we have a stay at 3-star Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne in September and the advertised price for one night is £458.18, however, with our Annual Pass discount we are only paying £240.02, a saving of £218.16 (around € 256.21) per night!
Example 2 – SAVE €251.95 per night
Secondly, we have a stay at the 4-star Hotel New York – Art of Marvel in January and the advertised price for one night is £448.08, however, with our Annual Pass discount we are only paying £214.52, a saving of £214.51 (around € 251.95) per night!
Just looking at these numbers, you could save yourself a lot of money by getting an annual pass. The Annual Pass room discount has a limit of 2 rooms/cabins per reservation. This means a single Annual Pass holder can book up to 2 rooms in the same hotel at the same time. This is great for when you are travelling with friends and family, however, bookings made with an Annual Pass discount will not include park tickets. So you will need to make sure your whole party has an Annual Pass, or you can also use another perk of discounted park tickets (except Discovery).
Hotel discounts are not available at some locations/room types such as Family rooms at Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe and Premium Tribe Cabins at Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch.
If you are visiting with friends and family, not only can you get them a room discount, but you can also get theme park tickets at a reduced cost. Magic Flex, Magic Plus and Infinity Passholders can take advantage of the 20% discount on 1-day park tickets. (maximum 5 tickets per day per Annual Pass Holder)
Magic Plus and Infinity Pass holders also have access to additional Ticket Discounts. These “Privilege Tickets” offer a better discount than the usual 20% and allow you to purchase 10 tickets (Magic Plus) or 20 Tickets (Infinity) with a maximum of 5 tickets maximum per calendar week.
Food and Merchandise Discount
Once inside the park, you can continue to use your Disneyland Paris Annual Pass to save money. From buying that must-have souvenir to a drink from a store, you can save up between 10-15% in Disneyland Paris restaurants and 10-20% in their 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. This is included free with the Infinity Annual Pass and is discounted with the Magic Flex (€65) and Magic Plus (€59).
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!
The Annual Photopass provides you with a digital copy of every ride photo, magic shot and character meet and greet taken by Disney photographers. With the return of close character interactions at Disneyland Paris, this Photopass will now allow you to capture and keep so many more magical moments!
Extra Magic Time
Access to Disney Parks before the official opening time. As an Annual Pass Holder or a Disney Hotel guest will have early access to Disneyland Park an hour before the official opening. This is a great time to ride big-ticket attractions or meet your favourite characters.
Access to Extra Magic Time is also possible for guests with a Privilege Ticket, when in the presence of the Annual Pass member.
Annual Pass Available Dates
Keep in mind that each Disneyland Paris Annual pass has a number of available dates. Therefore, if you want to visit outside of these dates you would need to purchase park tickets.
These dates can and often do change, however, you can find a rough outline of the available dates below for each Annual Pass, and you can find the complete list here
- Discovery (€229) access on 150 selected days per year
The unavailable days with this pass include all weekends, and high season times such as July, August, Halloween, Christmas etc
- Magic Flex (€319) access on 300 selected days per year
The unavailable days with this pass are some weekends, peak season, as well as Halloween and Christmas
- Magic Plus (€369) access on 350 selected days per year
The unavailable days with this pass are usually around Halloween and Christmas
- Infinity (€499) access on 365 selected days per year
No unavailable days, you can visit every day of the year!
Due to the available dates, you will find that most Annual Pass holders opt for the Magic Plus whilst guests who want to experience Halloween night, or the week of Christmas and New Year tend to choose the Infinity Annual Pass.
Update to Annual Pass System.
Please be aware due to the recent update to the Disneyland Paris Annual Pass system you can only currently book 3 dates in the Advanced Registration system. Once your first day has been used, you can then book the next.
The right Disneyland Paris Annual Pass for you!
In this section, we are going to look deeper at all 4 Disneyland Paris Annual Passes. We are going to discuss the major perks of that particular Annual Pass, how many days you need to visit to make the Annual Pass worth it, and if/when you should consider upgrading to the next level.
In our opinion, a Disneyland Paris Annual Pass is only worth it when it saves you money and allows you to visit the parks on the dates you want to do. Just because an Infinity Annual Pass is cheaper than buying separate day tickets doesn’t mean it’s the right choice to make.
The most common number of days people spend at Disneyland Paris is between 3 to 4 days. If you visit the parks for 3 days, twice a year, this could cost you between €402-624 in park tickets alone, so you could save up to €125 by buying the top-level Infinity Annual Pass, and up to €255 if you bought the Magic Plus.
Is the Disneyland Paris DISCOVERY Annual PASS worth it?
The Discovery Pass is the lowest priced Annual Pass at Disneyland Paris at €229. With this comes a lot of limitations and not a lot of discounts. For example, there is over half of the year where you will not be able to visit the park with this Annual Pass and the only discount you get is the choice to purchase unlimited car parking for €60.
The available days of this annual pass usually match the lowest park day ticket prices. Therefore, you will need to visit on at least two available weekdays to make this pass worth considering.
Is the Disneyland Paris Discovery Annual Pass worth it?
If you only plan to visit a few off-peak days within a year, then this pass could be suitable for you. However, if you want to visit on weekends or planning to make a longer trip it may be worth upgrading the Magic Flex or Magic Plus.
Is the Disneyland Paris Magic Flex Annual PASS worth it?
The Magic Flex Pass is the second tier Disneyland Paris Annual Pass and is priced at €319. For €90 more, you get 300 available days, an increase of 150 available days compared to the Discovery Annual Pass, you also start to get discounts in Disney shops (10%), restaurants (10%), discounted hotel stays, 20% discounted 1-day park tickets for your friends and family as well as free car parking pass worth €60
They are still 65 unavailable days scattered throughout the calendar including Halloween and Christmas but you can visit some weekends.
Is the Disneyland Paris Magic Flex Annual Pass worth it?
The Disneyland Paris Magic Flex Annual Pass is worth it if you plan on having three separate day visits to the resort or 4 consecutive days in the park. We would also advise people to look at this option if the dates they want to visit are not available with the Discovery Pass.
Is the Disneyland Paris Magic Plus Annual PASS worth it?
Magic Plus is the third tier Disneyland Paris Annual Pass and is priced at €369. This is the most popular Disneyland Paris Annual Pass as it provides you all the benefits of the Magic Flex with the addition of Extra Magic Time, the option to buy Privilege tickets, and access to the parks 350 days a year, which means you can book into the park any weekday or weekend apart from the 15 unavailable dates are around Halloween and Christmas.
Extra Magic Time at Disneyland Paris allows hotel guests and specific Annual Pass holders (Magic Plus and Infinity) to enter the park 1 hour before everybody else. This lets you meet characters, ride attractions and even get those castle photos before the crowds enter the park.
You also have an option to purchase discounted park tickets for your friends and family when they visit the park with you. These “privilege tickets” are priced between €47-66, saving your friends €34-64 per day!
Is the Disneyland Paris Magic Plus Annual Plus worth it?
Yes, the Disneyland Paris Magic Plus Annual Pass will be worth it for most guests. With a great price, increased available dates and access to Extra Magic Time it is no surprise that this is the most popular Annual Pass at Disneyland Paris. If you plan on visiting for 4 days or more in a year, you could save a lot of money! Make sure you use the Hotel discount to save even more money on your stay!
Is the Disneyland Paris Infinity Annual Pass worth it?
The Disneyland Paris Infinity Annual Pass takes much more consideration. At €499, it is an extra €130 over the Magic Plus and sees the biggest price increase between any of the Annual Pass tiers.
For the additional €130, you get an extra 15 available days in the park including Halloween, Christmas and New Year. For some people, these dates are the most important ones of the year it will justify the price increase, but for others, this may not matter.
After many years of trying to celebrate New Year in Disneyland Paris, and being unable to do so because of the pandemic, we are determined to do it this year! The Infinity Annual Pass is the only one to allow you access to the parks between the 24th-31st of December. If we did not have this Annual pass we would need to buy additional park tickets costing €124 per day, per person to visit the park within these dates, so by upgrading to the Infinity, we will actually save a lot of money.
Of course, this is not going to be the case for everybody. Remember you can still experience Halloween and Christmas at Disneyland Paris without going on these specific dates, the festivals last for 2 months each!
Better Park Benefits
You do get a few additional discounts and perks with the Infinity Annual Pass over any other which could this suitable for some people, or at least one member of your family.
Firstly, you get access to Disney Illuminations and Parade VIP Areas. This means you can enjoy more time in the park and avoid having to wait hours for that perfect viewing spot. For example, for Disney Illuminations, you get access to a roped area right in front of the castle. It is truly amazing!
Secondly, you get 20% off merchandise in the shops (an additional 10% over the Magic Plus). In essence, if you spend €500 within the shops over the year, you would save €100, €50 more than if you had a Magic Plus.
Thirdly, you get 15% off Disney Restaurants (an extra 5% over the Magic Plus). In essence 5 visits, spending €200 each time, you will save €150, €50 more than Magic Plus.
Fourthly, you get a better discount at Disney Hotels, up to 50% off selected dates and based on availability. This is like booking a flight, book early for the best discount, as fewer seats become available, the discount will lower.
As an Infinity Pass Holder, you will also get Annual PhotoPass+, this is another €59 saving over the Magic Plus.
They are also other areas you save money with the Infinity Annual Pass, however, the following three benefits have been removed from the current list. Disneyland Paris has confirmed they are still offering these until further notice.
- free stroller rentals, usually €25 per day
- free wheelchair rentals, usually €25 per day
- Privileged parking areas, usually an extra €15 on top of the standard €30 a day
If you’re a Disneyland Paris local or fanatic, then this pass very well may make sense for you. Again, the additional discounts alone are probably worth half of the cost to move up from Plus to Infinity.
Is the Disneyland Paris Infinity Annual Plus worth it?
If you plan to visit for more than 6 days, stay in a Disney hotel, or want to visit on Halloween or over Christmas and New Year then yes the Infinity pass is worth it. If you don’t want to visit on these dates then opt for the Magic Plus.
Is The DISNEYLAND PARIS ANNUAL PASS WORTH IT?
This is the question we have been trying to answer throughout this post. The quick answer is, YES for most people visiting Disneyland Paris buying an annual pass will save you money, even on a 2-day trip!
However, make sure you check those available dates and benefits before deciding which Annual Pass will be right for you.
