When was the last time you visited the Disneyland Paris website? If it hasn’t been in the last few months you’ll want to take a look at the brand new, Walt Disney World style website. For many years, Disneyland Paris relied on Flash to power the Disneyland Paris site and it was always a little bit clunky to use. Now, the new interface allows much easier access to all the information you need and there is a lot more information than there used to be. With the websites makeover, Disneyland Paris have also snook in a change to it’s tickets. In fact, they’ve made tickets more affordable and in some places, cheaper than what used to be on offer.
We are struggling to pinpoint when exactly this change took place as it was done on the quiet but we are pretty certain we can narrow it down to the past month or so. The question is: how has it changed?
Disney continue to offer multi day and single day tickets. They also offer multi park and single park tickets in the mix. Let’s start with the single day tickets which has brought the biggest changes.
A day at the park can now cost you between £53-£37 dependant on how flexible you are with your dates. Those able to travel during the park’s low season will benefit from a reduced ticket compared to those in high season. Take a look at the season chart below.
What is positive is to see that the SUPER Magic ticket is only for a very select few dates. Most weekends fit in the MAGIC ticket price band with the exception of the last 3 weekends in January and the first weekend in February. School holidays are also classed as MAGIC season with the rest of the years coming into the MINI season.
Want access to a second park on that same day? It’ll cost you an additional £12! Pretty straight forward really. On top of this, if you want to travel to the resort from the centre of Paris for one day then you can always buy Disney’s package:
This is far more expensive that getting yourself there. The metro from Paris only take 45 minutes and is relatively inexpensive in comparison (around 7.50 EUROS).
Multi day tickets have also have a price change. Although I don’t have an exact change to ticket prices I know that the 2 day, 2 park ticket has been reduced by £3 from the old price.
This will bring a large predicament for some visitors. A two day, two park ticket costs £113. I often will visit the Disneyland Park on my first day and then Walt Disney Studios on the second with a return to the Disneyland Park in the afternoon if I’m on a two day trip. So….. is there a cost effective way of doing this?
Let’s do some maths.
1 adult 2 day, 2 park ticket is set at £113. This can be used at any point during the year, with no blackout date.
With the way I tour I could by a 1 day, 1 park ticket and a 1 day, 2 park ticket for my trip and it works out as the following:
MINI Season: 1 day 1 park + 2 day 2 park = £86
MAGIC Season: 1 day 1 park + 2 day 2 park = £102
SUPER Magic Season: 1 day 1 park + 2 day 2 park = £118
The only time buying a multi day ticket is cost effective is if you are planning on visiting one of the very few peak days the resort has. It’s certainly worth doing your homework when you are planning your next trip.
