Make sure you have a Happy New Year and take note of the latest Disneyland Paris Closures & Refurbishments for February 2014, now added to our helpful Calendar pages.
Missing from action on certain dates in the month of February are regulars such as Armageddon: Les Effets Speciaux, Autopia, Le Pays des Contes de Fées along with a couple of noteworthy extras. Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril will continue a long closure begun on 7th January for the entire month; this is said to allow the demolition and rebuilding of the faux temple itself at the heart of the attraction; a 1993 addition that was only ever meant to be a somewhat temporary capacity boost.
Elsewhere, could Discoveryland be saying a fond farewell to Captain EO, yet again? The seasonal 3D cinema attraction featuring Michael Jackson goes down on 3rd February and won’t return for the rest of the month, at least…
It’s that time of year again, as Disneyland Paris updates its Park Tickets for the new season, beginning 7th November 2013. This changeover date brings refreshed prices and offers to the range of entrance passes for Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park which will be carried right through to 2nd April 2014.
With the end of the 20th Anniversary, it’s a chance for the resort to refresh some of its longstanding offers. So far, the previous “Magic Ticket” or “20th Anniversary Ticket” for 1 Day / 2 Parks appears to have been dropped, in favour of a “Stay & Play” renaming of the two standard 1 Day tickets. This means there’s no longer 20% off a 1 Day / 2 Park ticket, but the good news is that all other tickets have been reduced across the board.
Here’s our complete comparison of all the ticket prices, from April 2013 to November 2013:
Ticket Type — Adult / Child (3-11yrs) — £Previous Price to £New Price
This is the second year that ticket prices in Pound Sterling have decreased in November after an increase in April. Since all of the standard tickets are valid for 1 year*, it may be worth the gamble of buying your tickets before the next price changeover deadline even if you intend to visit later in the year — another increase this coming April could mean the savings really add up, though this is not guaranteed.
If you’re visiting for just one day (but why?!) and know the exact date, it might also be worth looking at the Billet Francilien offer on the French booking pages, which can provide big discounts if you book more than five days in advance for a specific dated ticket.
Our one-stop Disneyland Paris calendar has been updated with the latest dates, hours and details for the autumn and winter months ahead, now taking us right through to January 2014.
Monthly Park Hours now extend to January 2014, with opening times for both parks, Extra Magic Hours and the ever-useful colour-coded hotel pricing seasons, if you’ve yet to book. If you’re not too fond of the new official day-by-day Disneyland Paris calendar pages, which require a whole lot of clicking or tapping to check hours for each day, you’ll be pleased to see we still provide these in a monthly format — all on the same page in a single glance!
A single click then takes you across to Closures & Refurbishments, with all the upcoming attraction refurbishment dates on a single page and in logical order. January looks to be a particularly busy month at Disneyland Paris, both for seasonal closures and genuine refurbishments such as Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril.
Looking further ahead, Extra Magic Hours dates are now available for February and March 2014, while our simple Season Dates page provides the dates for Bonfire, Christmas, St David’s and St Patrick’s.
What’s unusual about this deal — and particularly good for families — is that it extends the “Kids Under 12″ offer beyond its usual winter confines. You’d only normally see kids under 7 getting free hotel accommodation and park tickets in the spring and summer months, so the chance to not pay a thing for under 12s right through to 31st August 2013 — and even during school holidays — might come as a real bonus, especially with 30% off on top.
We only share official Disneyland Paris offers and links for Disney Hotel packages and park tickets, which always take you to the official website to book. Use these links and DLRPMagic.com will benefit, which means we can keep providing more updates, news, photos and videos!
The new spring season of late March and early April normally brings refreshes to most Disneyland Paris restaurant menus, but until then we’ve been getting the current pages up to speed with a slate of updates from the winter season to help you plan your impending trip:
…And there are more to follow, so watch this space.
Menus are normally updated at least once in March/April and some, normally only high-class Table Service which use seasonal ingredients, are additionally updated in November/December.
If you’ve spotted an updated menu whilst you’re at the resort, you can help us out by snapping a photo and sending it to us at our direct email address, in the biggest size possible (so we can read and check all the details!). There are 62 menus to keep on top of, so this is no mean feat!
‘Tis the season… to plan your winter break to Disneyland Paris! That task is made easier now Disney have confirmed important details for the months ahead, which you can find in our comprehensive Calendar section.
Monthly Park Hours are now available for the whole of December 2012, including New Year’s Eve at both Disney Parks — with fireworks at midnight and rides until 1am!
Closures & Refurbishments meanwhile now extend right through to January 2013. We’re always the first place to find these dates for the months ahead, and now you can check attraction closures during your New Year getaway.
Particularly interesting might be the long closure of Pirates of Caribbean — currently scheduled at least right up to the end of January. The attraction has been rumoured to receive technical upgrades and enhancements for some time.
It’s a double Calendar update today for your winter Disneyland Paris trip planning…
First, park opening hours for November 2012 reveal a schedule broadly similar to November 2011, with shorter weekday operation and some very long weekend hours, such as 9am to 10pm. This 9am opening, rather than standard 10am, could be a sign of how busy these winter weekends at Disneyland Paris have become, taking an hour out of Extra Magic Hours to spread the arrival of guests (who may also be more inclined to arrive and leave earlier with these colder days).
Second, the very latest Closures & Refurbishments updates, now including the schedule right up to December 2012. There’s more good news for Captain EO fans: Michael Jackson will be back to “change the world” again on certain dates in December. Meanwhile, seasonal curtailed operation of both Autopia and Armageddon: Les Effets Speciaux continues up until the Christmas holiday period.
Look out for some exciting improvements to our Calendar section soon, including an expanded Special Offers section and a new day-by-day park schedule guide!
Replacing our previous video filmed in 2007, this new High Definition video now includes the attraction’s famous “stretchroom” pre-show and begins with a haunting twilight walk through the grounds of this Old West mansion.
