Disneyland Paris Announces Annual Passes Will Go Back on Sale
It has been almost a month since Disneyland Paris reopened their gates to guests following two rounds of COVID closures, and today an announcement many guests have been waiting for has finally been released.
Today, Disneyland Paris has confirmed that the sales and renewals of Annual Passes will reopen later this month, on July 15th. Coincidentally, this date marks one year since the resort first reopened after the pandemic.
Based on the information available on the resort’s website, this will see the return of all four pass options – Discover, Magic Flex, Magic Plus, and Infinity. However, one key change has been made, which means the passes will not be valid as freely as they were prior to the pandemic.
Since the resort first reopened back in July last year, guests with all types of ticket have been required to place additional, date-specific reservations on a separate booking platform.
It has been confirmed that this requirement will be in place for guests “for the foreseeable future”, and that includes Annual Pass holders.
Having this additional step is proving an effective way for the resort to limit capacity in the parks and ensure health and safety regulation compliance. A similar system is also in place in Walt Disney World, which also seems to be here to stay.
For Annual Passholders, the option will be available to register for three upcoming dates, providing availability is still listed on the booking calendars. As we have seen, the availability of dates is ever-changing, so if you are hoping to visit on a specific date we do recommend checking back!
This news comes at the same time as the announcement that free FASTPASS offerings are ending at the Disneyland Paris resort, to be replaced by a new, paid-for Premier Access option.
With these new changes in Annual Pass service now announced, Disney are offering guests in possession of existing passes the option to cancel their membership, with cancellation effective from the start of August.
Are you pleased to see the return of the Annual Pass? Or are you disheartened at the continuance of the additional reservation requirement?
