Park ticket prices rise for Summer season, big increases on longer stays

Magical Moments Festival entrance

If you’re looking to visit Disneyland Paris this summer on a regular park ticket and on a limited budget, you might be forced to keep those Magical Moments briefer than you’d like. The start of the new season on 6th April saw the prices of Park Tickets updated and another inevitable rise, although this year seems to have hit longer stay tickets particularly hard. So much so that it’s official: a regular 5 Days 2 Parks ticket now costs more than a Dream annual pass! That’s the top tier Passeport Annuel, offering 365 days access and big discounts on dining and shopping.

With many of us taking price of those fairly reasonably-priced annual passports, we should probably keep quiet — but it’s still worthwhile to note the prices Disneyland Paris is charging for the vast majority of visitors. The biggest rise comes on the 4 Days 2 Parks ticket, which has increased by £13 for Brits or a huge €16 at the gate compared to the previous prices. For British visitors, the increase comes on top of a continually poor exchange rate, pushing the longest 5 Day ticket to a whopping £177, equivalent to €200.87 or €1 more than that €199 Dream pass.

Of course, there are several official special offers for tickets which run practically year-round — a cheaper 1 Day 2 Parks ticket and “one day free” offers for 3 and 4 day tickets — but the resort seems to be pushing its prices across the board in the hope of increased revenues as it pushes to break even. Already this year we’ve seen far less generous offers for hotel bookings, with last year’s almost frivolous 40% Off matched with only a 20% package discount this year — upped to 25% only as the deadline neared. The resort almost seemed to be selling itself cheap — having high prices but cutting them almost in half, which can look tacky to the consumer — but is it now selling itself too high?

Here’s a full summary of the changes in both British pounds and euros:

Ticket Type — Adult/Child (3-11yrs)

  • 1 Day 1 Park
    £48/£44 to £51/£45 (+£3/+£1) — €54/€49 to €57/€51 (+€3/+€2)

    £61/£55 to £61/£55 (+£0/+£0) — €68/€61 to €69/€62 (+€1/+€1)

    £101/£91 to £108/£97 (+£7/+£6) — €113/€102 to €122/€109 (+€11/+€8)
  • 3 Days 2 Parks
    £126/£113 to £134/£115 (+£8/+£2) — €140/€126 to €151/€130 (+€11/+€4)
  • 4 Days 2 Parks
    £146/£132 to £159/£134 (+£13/+£2) — €163/€147 to €179/€151 (+€16/+€4)

    Is Disney is deterring the longer staying guest?

    Does Disney just want the 3 day returning guest?

    Why this the world in the financial melt down? May be of greed or not making enough profit?

    Anyway, if you know how to go to Disney on a budget you can do it !!!

    How to bet the Ticket Price…

    We, family of 5 go around 30 days a years and it cost per day around £5 each !!!! We do other things in the Paris area, ie Provins, Pars, Fontainebleau, it’s not just Disney.

    How 5 x Annual Dream 365 days Tickets (1 Free 20% off) current price €199 x 5 = €995 – 20% = €796 / 30 days = €26 for 5 to get in per day or part off. (other annual passes available 300, 330 days)

    You can travel on Le Shuttle for around a £12.50 Tesco Clubcard Voucher + £5 each way.

    You can stay in the area for a family of 5 for around £40-£150 per night, subject to season.

    Hope this helps?

  • Oh no. If this is how it’s going to be for just the tickets, how will the hotel prices for the winter season be affected?

    Speaking of which, when will they be released?

  • I’m sure its not greed, more like DLP keeps losing millions of pounds, these losses do need to be paid some time or we will not have a Disneyland to go to.

  • IRONIC – As I read this post about prices, the advert on the right hand side of the page was for Disney World Florida. 2011 Ultimate 14 day pass, adult £220. So spend an extra £43 per adult and you will have NINE more days in FOUR parks and TWO water parks. I know it costs more to get to Florida but you can get cheaper off site hotels and much less expensive off site food.
    I love Disneyland Paris and would much rather travel to France and then also spend some time in Paris or add a visit to somewhere like Reims or Brugge to my holiday than go to Orlando, but at these prices the USA is looking more tempting.

  • Honestly, I think it had to happen that the prize will increase. In return Disney should lower the prizes for food and merchandise, because I think more people would eat more often in the parks.

    If you compare the ticket prizes with other Disney resorts, DLRP’s tickets are cheaper. If you take the quality of the resort in account, then the prize was okay. Now the tickets in Paris are on the same level like in the USA, at least the 1 day/1 park tickets.

    DLRP: 1 day – 1 park: adult €54
    DL: 1 day – 1 park: adult €53
    WDW: 1 day – 1 park: adult €57

  • Well this maybe to ofset all the free ap’s they are giving away this year as well as 1 euro tickets and £9.50 promotions in the UK.

  • Wish I had paid £9.50.

  • I wonder...  10th May 2011, 20:27
