Changes coming to Annual Passes at Disneyland Paris on March 21, 2018Published: February 1, 2018 / Last Updated: February 1, 2018 / By: Arvid Bux
Disneyland Paris is making some changes to its current Annual Pass offerings. These changes were triggered by feedback that has been received from the various AP holders. The changes consist of three major priorities:
- Program communication, with a redesign of the e-mail communication and an
even more personalized experience
- Digitization, in order to make reservations and renewal even easier
- New VIP experience, with new exclusivity and even more advantageous
conditions for Annual Pass holders
New VIP areas
In late March, the private VIP areas for Infinity Annual Pass holders will be expanded so that they can fully enjoy Disney Stars on Parade and Disney Illuminations in a special way.
Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow
From 10 June 2018, a new zone will be reserved for Infinity Annual Pass holders for the new show Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow! which will be performed during Marvel Summer of Super Heroes at Walt Disney Studios Park, at the foot of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
The Infinity parking will be doubled in size to allow even more guests to park their cars there.
Discounts and preferential pricing
Annual Pass holders enjoy preferential pricing at Disney Resort hotels, with Disney partners, and in Disney restaurants. Holders can also take advantage of discounts on special Disneyland Paris events open to the public, like Electroland (15%), the Halloween Party, or the New Year’s Eve Party. There are rumors that there will also be an AP discount for FanDaze, but that hasn’t been confirmed, nor do we know the percentage.
Friends and Family
Special ticket prices remain the lowest prices of the year, so that Pass holders can share the magic of Disneyland Paris with family and friends. These ticket prices have not changed: €39 for Magic Plus Annual Passes (max. 10 tickets), and €35 for Infinity Annual Passes (max. 20 tickets).
The Disneyland Paris team is well aware that AP holders would like to take advantage of their benefits online. Works are on the way, but most likely will not be completed before 2020.

- Discovery Pass: €9/month* or €149

No change in special prices and usual special offers
Special offers that come with the Annual Passes such as 4 free months with renewal, or the referral program, remain unchanged.
More exclusivity for Annual Pass holders
In response to multiple requests, Disneyland Paris is finally adding inaugural range of exclusive Annual Pass products. There will be a general Annual Pass range, and a special Infinity collection.
There will be a permanent collection featuring a pin and a lanyard, as well as a mug and holographic t-shirt in limited edition.
These products will be available only at Flora’s Boutique from 12 April 2018, for the first anniversary of the new Annual Passes and the anniversary of Disneyland Park.
A new program of events
