Disneyland Paris Discounts

LAST UPDATE: 11/24/14

  • Most prices below are in UK Pounds or Euros. See a currency calculator such as xe.com to get an idea of current exchange rates.

Disneyland® Resort Paris (formerly EuroDisney) consists of Disneyland Park; Walt Disney Studios Park; six Disney-operated resort hotels: Disneyland Hotel, Hotel New York, Newport Bay Club, Sequoia Lodge, Hotel Cheyenne and Hotel Santa Fe; a campground called the Davy Crockett Ranch; and Disney Village, a shopping and dining district similar to Downtown Disney at the US resorts.

We must admit that we were very surprised to learn how reasonably priced the packages at Disneyland Resort Paris can be. In general the prices are nowhere near what you’d pay to visit Walt Disney World. And remember, the package prices include your passes and breakfast!

In addition, Disneyland Resort Paris offers many seasonal discounts on its hotel rooms, tickets and vacation packages. We list any current offers and Disneyland Paris discounts below.

Special Events

Disney Halloween Festival

The Halloween Festival is offered annually. The park is decorated throughout, Mickey and friends put on fantastic Halloween costumes, and the Villains can be proud of being so wicked and mean. Devious Villains celebrate in a night-time show, and get ready for games, tricks and treats as Disney Characters take to the Castle Stage where the party truly starts!

Disney Enchanted Christmas

Christmas celebrations are held annually. The park is decorated throughout, with spectacular illuminations at night, and special parades and shows are offered. Christmas season festivities include:

Packages

All hotel stays at Disneyland Resort Paris include Continental breakfast (pastries, yogurt, cold cuts, sliced cheeses, juice, coffee). While you can book just “room plus breakfast” and buy your tickets separately, you generally won’t save much, if any, money by doing so.

Disneyland Paris won’t sell US residents a one-night package directly. (You can book a single night package at the Disneyland Paris hotels through Travelocity, though. Enter “Disneyland Paris” in the box labeled “Find hotels near:”.)

Most people will want to buy at least a Classic Package, which consists of at least two nights’ accommodations, daily breakfast, and unlimited entrance to the theme parks, or one of the package specials that run from time to time.

The standard Classic Package includes:

*At Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch, your continental breakfast is taken back to your cabin.

**Please note: there is no Disney Park shuttle bus to/from Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch. If you stay at Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch, you must have your own transport.

Booking Your Disneyland Resort Paris Holiday

Booking from the UK

Disneyland Resort Paris now has a good online booking system for UK residents if you prefer to book your own holiday package.

Alternatively, UK residents can book by phone at 08448 008 898.

Booking from the US and Canada

Be aware that Disneyland Resort Paris does not do very much marketing to US or Canadian visitors and therefore does not make it terribly easy for Americans to book, find a good deal or arrange for any “extras” or deviations from standard packages. However, there are quite a few options for booking:

  • Best option: online through Expedia.co.uk, which usually offers any current package specials that are available in the UK. (UK offers are almost always much better than US specials: we’ve had reports from people who saved over 50%.) Your purchase will be in UK pounds, so use a site such as xe.com to figure out the exchange rate. Note that you may need to contact your credit card company prior to booking: for security purposes, some companies block international purchases unless you notify them in advance. You’ll also want to use whichever of your credit cards has the lowest foreign-currency and/or foreign-transaction fees. The best cards have no foreign fees, and the worst ones have both a foreign-currency fee and a foreign-transaction fee!
  • You can book regular priced packages through Travelocity (US site). Enter “Disneyland Paris” in the box labeled “Find hotels near:”.
  • Online through the international version of the Disneyland Paris site. You will only be able to book offers marketed to US/Canada residents.
  • Call the resort in France. There are English-speaking operators to take your booking. From the US, the number is: (011) 33 1 60 30 60 81. Note that the reservations opening hours are limited and they are 6 hours later than EST and 9 hours later than PST. If you are in the US, they will only book the offers that are marketed to US residents.

Package Specials

Please note: the specials below are for UK residents. The UK is the primary market for Disneyland Paris and the UK sales office offers the best deals. Links in the package specials below all go to the UK site.

The package offers for US residents are limited and usually have bigger restrictions, such as longer length of stay, etc. US travel agents cannot book UK packages.

Non-Disney Hotels

In addition to the official Disney-operated hotels, there are other hotels that are nearby but not owned by Disney.

Recommended Hotel

Marriott’s Village d’lle-de-France – While this is not an official “Partner Hotel,” MouseSavers.com readers Danilo & Ann V write, “…we would highly recommend it. It is a Marriott Vacation Club Resort, but they also rent the villas as you would a room at any Marriott hotel.” They report that the grounds and the units are beautiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The resort also offers activities for children and adults, as well as some for the whole family.

MouseSavers.com reader Amy O reports that the villas have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs, and a 1/2 bath, living area, dining room, and full kitchen downstairs. They also have washer/dryers in the villa and all of the villas have a patio that looks over a garden, the pool, a golf course, or a small lake. About a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel is a small town with a grocery store, bakeries, restaurants, etc.

The resort has a shuttle (for a fee of €2.50 per person) that goes back and forth to Disneyland and the train station, but it stops running at 4:00 pm. Another option is the public bus, which runs from 6:00 am to after midnight and stops at the end of the hotel driveway. As of May 2011, it costs €1.90 per person or €12 for a carnet of 10 tickets. Kids are half price (ticket reduit). They are the same type of ticket you use on the Paris metro and are purchased at the train station or the Tabac shop in town.

Official Partner Hotels

Disneyland Resort Paris offers packages that include accommodations in its official Partner Hotels, but it is often cheaper to book them via the websites of the hotel owners. Obviously if you book directly with the hotel, you’ll have to buy tickets separately.

Half Board Meal Plans

Half Board Meal Plans offer up to a 10% saving in a variety of restaurants in the whole Resort. They are pre-paid meal vouchers valid at a variety of restaurants throughout the Resort for packages bought at a Disney Hotel (except the Disneyland Hotel). They’re designed to help you budget your stay with savings of up to 10%, and give you the peace of mind that everything is pre-paid.

You get one voucher per night stayed (for example a 3-night stay would include 3 meal vouchers per person) and each voucher is good for a lunch or dinner. Since breakfast is already included in the room rate, this gives you “half board.”

The vouchers are not valid on December 24th and 31st, so be aware if you plan to travel over the Christmas/New Year season.

You can upgrade your Half Board Plan to include gourmet restaurants, the legendary Disney Character Dining, and Buffalo Wild West Dinner Show. If you buy a lower-level Half Board Plan and then decide to eat in a higher-level restaurant, the restaurant will apply the value of your voucher toward the meal.

Disney Village Restaurant Offers

There is a web page devoted to offers for the Disney Village on the French version of the Disneyland Resort Paris site. It is not available in English. If you can read French at all, it is worth looking at this page, as there are frequently valuable offers for the Disney Village restaurants, such as 20% off discount cards, free parking when you spend a certain amount at various restaurants, and more. (If you can’t read French at all, you can try a translator such as Google Translate.)

Groceries

MouseSavers.com reader Linda J reports in July 2013: “Food at any of the hotels in or around Disney is expensive and there are no stores around the park area to buy any food except the Esso gas station near Santa Fe hotel. A good tip – take the RER (metro train) one stop to Val de’ Europa. There is … a hypermart (like a super Walmart) there with a large grocery section. You can buy fruit, pastries, pre-made sandwiches and pre-made salads at very reasonable prices in addition to regular grocery items. I bought fruit and croissants for breakfast at about 2.5 Euros per day, versus the [non-Disney] hotel’s breakfast buffet at 11 Euros. There are also several reasonably priced restaurants outside the mall and across the street from the station. The train runs from 6:00 am – midnight daily. Families could save a bundle just on bottled water and snacks/chips.”

Parking

Normally the daily parking fee at the theme parks is €8 for a regular car.

RER Train from Paris

You can take the RER train direct from Paris to the Disneyland Resort Paris station. It’s a super easy way to visit the Disney Parks if you’re staying in Paris. You can buy your RER ticket at the station the day of your trip.

Alternatively, consider a Paris Visite card, which combines an RER pass, Paris Metro pass and tourist discounts. You can buy one in advance through this link. You’ll need the Zones 1-5 pass be able to take the train to Disneyland from Paris.

Eurostar Train from London

Eurostar is a very comfortable high-speed train between the UK and France that goes through the “Chunnel” (Channel Tunnel). A direct Eurostar train between London and Disneyland Resort Paris leaves London (departing from St. Pancras, Ashford and Ebbsfleet) in the late morning and returns from Disneyland Resort Paris to London in the evening daily. However, this train does not run on Tuesdays and Saturdays except during UK school holidays. The trip takes less than 3 hours each way.

Other options are to take Eurostar from London to Disneyland Resort Paris with a change in Lille, or London to Paris and transfer to the regional RER train.

SuperShuttle to/from Paris Airports

If you need reasonably-priced shuttle transportation between the any of the three Paris airports (Charles de Gaulle / CDG, Orly / ORY or Beavais / BVA) and Disneyland Paris or the city of Paris, SuperShuttle is a very reliable name brand and should be considerably cheaper than a taxi and much less hassle than dragging luggage on and off Metro trains and through the Metro stations.

Annual Passport Discounts

There are three types of Annual Passports at Disneyland Resort Paris: Francilien, Fantasy and Dream. All three offer various discounts in addition to admission. Those discounts are good enough that they may justify buying one Annual Passport for someone in your party, even if this will be a one-time vacation at Disneyland Resort Paris.

Unfortunately the Annual Pass information on the official Disneyland Resort Paris website is hard to find and apparently only listed in French. The best resource in English for all the details on Annual Passes is an unofficial site called DLRP Magic. This site also has information about how to purchase an Annual Pass.

Be sure to see below for information on additional savings when buying Annual Passports for multiple family members!

Family Discounts on Annual Passports

You can save 20% when you buy annual passports for a family of five or more. The passports must all be purchased from a ticket booth at the Disneyland Resort Paris theme parks at the same time, for persons in the same family who are all living at the same address. You must present ID for all members to prove that you are the same family.

MouseSavers.com reader Amy O writes (in July 2007): “Disneyland Paris is currently running a promotion where kids under 7 are free. The Disney rep at the ticket counter at the park could not honor the free one-day pass for kids since we didn’t stay at a Disney hotel, but instead offered free annual passes for our 2 kids under 7 if we purchased adult annual passes at any level. We were originally going to buy one-day/one-park tickets for our family (46 euros/adult and 38 euros/child) and instead purchased 2 adult basic annual passes (89 euros each with some blackout dates) that are good at both Disneyland and the Paris Studios park for a year and received 2 kids passes free!” We are not sure if this is standard policy or if Amy just got lucky. In any case, it’s worth inquiring!

MouseSavers.com reader Marcus reports in May 2008, “We saw your site a few days ago before going to Disneyland Paris and saw your note regarding Amy O’s free child passes. We bought annual passes last year and were going to do the same this year. We told the rep. we wanted 3 passes (one for each of myself, my wife and our 3 year old son [who was free last year]). I mentioned there was an offer on whereby under 7s are free (referring to the hotel offer but not mentioning hotels as we weren’t in one of theirs) and she immediately said yes there was and that his pass was free and gave him the same pass as my wife which was a more expensive one – mine was just the cheapest pass as we can use hers for merchandise discounts and car parking etc., we didn’t need 2 of these. She did not, however, mention this until I did so it is possible this is a standard offer if you ask for it. So, thanks for this tip and it may be worth updating this on your site.”

Stockholder Discounts

Stockholders in Euro Disney SCA (the company that owns Disneyland Resort Paris) can join the Shareholder’s Club, which provides an extensive list of discounts including 15% off most tickets and Annual Passes, 10% off hotel rooms, 15% off at most table-service restaurants in the parks and hotels, 15% merchandise discounts and more.

Each morning from 9 am to noon, Shareholders Club members can quietly start their visit with a light Continental breakfast at “Salon Mickey,” at the entrance of Disneyland Park. Members are also invited to private events such as film screenings at the theme parks.

If you own at least 20 shares of Euro Disney SCA, a two-year membership in the Shareholder’s Club is free; if you own at least 5, but less than 20 shares, the cost is €30 for a two-year membership. (Note that as of 12/3/07, the stock was consolidated so that 100 shares became 1 share, making 5 or 20 of the new shares equivalent to 500 or 2000 of the old shares.) The stock is sold on the Paris and Brussels stock exchanges under ticker EDL.PA and can be purchased through many US brokers. Some discount brokers don’t carry it.

NHS Discounts

MouseSavers.com reader Simon C reports that anyone who works for the UK National Health Service (NHS) can use the site healthservicediscounts.com, which sometimes offers Disneyland Paris discounts.

Sightseeing in Paris

If you’re going to Disneyland Paris, we certainly hope you’re also going to the actual city of Paris. (Please don’t skip it — it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world!)

Paris Pass

For your time in Paris, we highly recommend the Paris Pass. For a very reasonable price, it provides:

We recommend buying this pass even if you think the cost is about the same as buying separate tickets for the museums you plan to visit and the public transportation you plan to use, because it will save you a huge amount of time in line.

Conciergerie.com

Another a great resource for putting your Paris trip together is Conciergerie.com, which sells:

Trip Reports

“I recently returned from Disneyland Paris where my wife and I spent 6 days on property. We used it as our base and traveled out from there. We had an excellent time. In case you are not aware, the Sante Fe and Cheyenne hotels have no air conditioning. The New York has circulating air, but it does not cool the room. The other three have A/C in the rooms only. The lobbies and hallways are not air conditioned in any of the hotels, except maybe the Disneyland Hotel. We found this out when we checked in at the Santa Fe on a 90 degree day. There are not any screens on the windows either and they do have bugs. We quickly upgraded to the Newport Bay Club.

The best way to get to Disney from the airport is the shuttle bus which is advertised on the Disneyland Paris website. It… drops you right at your hotel. The train is cheaper, but much more inconvenient and less direct.”
