You only need one passport to get discount on food and shopping. In the case of a Dream passport the holder can get a free drink (Kir or juice) in table service restaurants. Both of you would need passports to get the drink.

Yes quite correct

I think I had the same problem as Lizzie. At the ticket booth at the entrance gates the woman was determined that the sponsor had to be there. But on the back of the sponsor form that you have to present for the discount, point 7 clearly states (in french) that it is with or without the sponsor. You just need a form. The best thing to do is to buy a 1 day pass and take it to the Annual Passport office with the sponsorform to get the discounted rate. The passport office were perfectly happy to process it without the sponsor being present. I think there is some miscommunication between the main ticket sellers at the gate and the passport office.

Thanks for the responses Cyrano

Yet another question - will they refund the cost of my hopper ticket, as we are booking with the Santa Fe through DLP online and of course you get your hopper passes included in that price?

I'm really quite confused about this (not unusual ). I have booked 2 nights room only in the HI at beginning September. I also intend going in November to one of the disney hotels (hopefully DLH but not sure of budget yet!).

Would it be better to buy APs for the 3 of us, and book room only in November? How much cheaper is it usually to book room only than a package? Also there is usually an offer on of a free night when we go in Nov, so we probably won't get that on a R.O. booking (?)

Obviously in Sept, we will have to buy hoppers anyway, so prob better to get APs.

Should these be Dream or Fantasy - how would I find out the blackout days on a Fantasy?

If I buy APs, is there anyone willing to sponsor 3 of us?

Thanks for reading...................

If you intend to go into the parks for 4 days or more, I think it works out cheaper to get annual passports.(when you add up the discounts you get from having a passport)
Best prices I could find for 4 day hoppers are here

http://www.365tickets.com/prodhubs.cfm?productId=71

Check out this site for annual passport comparisons, prices and blackout days. Just click on the passport you are interested in (all in english)
There are no black out days for the Dream passport and you also get 20% off one day shopping and one meal which can save alot!

http://www.dlp.info/Guide/Guest-Info...Comparison.asp

If you do want sponsoring PM me, as that will save you an extra 10%.

You'll only get the discount of a one day pass off the annual passport I'm afraid

Hrmmm that poses a bit of a problem...If I phone DLP direct would I be able to get a room in the santa fe but only get park passes for one of us, ie my mum so I can then buy a one day ticket and exchange that on the first day?

They really need to make this process easier huh....!

and I read on another forum that it has to be an undated ticket, i.e. not one that's been included with a package.

Damn.. its so difficult, I am really tempted to get a single dream passport to capitalise on the discounts and benefits then use tickets365.com to buy the hopper passes for the other members of my family.

I dont think I will be revisiting in a year, as I will be saving for WDW in Oct 07.

So... it will cost €179.. at 1.4 (roughly) = £127.85 or a 3 day hopper for £72.

What do you reckon, is it worth the extra? Im not sure I can quite make the £55.85 up in out benefits.

We found that between meals and shopping it more than covered the cost of the extra. We have one dream pass and 3 fantasy passes.

Hi. I'm new to the boards and came across this thread about the Annual Passports for Disneyland Paris. My husband and I will be going to Paris next month (Aug. 6th-11th). We will be spending the first couple of days sightseeing and the remainder of the week at both Disney Parks.

We are planning to purchase one annual passport and one 3-day park hopper ticket. We will also be meeting 7 other adults (9 total) for dinner at Disneyland Hotel and I think we will save some money by using the Annual passport - food discount. This will probably be our only trip to Paris, so I thought it would be a good idea to help someone extend their passport. I'll just need some instruction on what to fill out and if I need to bring a form with me.

Thanks in advance,
Wendy

Sponsorship of annual passports / family discounts - Disneyland paris

Hi, i am new to this board so please excuse me if i am posting this incorrectly.

We are going to disneyland paris on 19.8.2006 for 6 nights (booked independantly) staying at the holiday inn. In total there are 8 of travelling, 2 families of 2 adults and 2 children the one little girl will be under 3. I have worked out we need 7 passes either Dream or Fantasy.

I wonder if anyone can help me.
1.Does anyone know if you can get a discount for a family and if so how do you prove you are a family and are there any numbers?
2. Would anyone be happy to sponsor us, i understand each passport holder can sponsor upto 3 people and they can then claim extra months on their passport. 1 sponsor = 1 month, 2 sponsors =1 months and 3 sponsors= 12months. I can download the sponsor form and have roughly translated it. NB. YOU NEED TO BE IN THE 2nd MONTH OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP TO BE ABLE TO SPONSOR, clever trick of Disney. I would of course be happy to sponsor anyone on my return.
4. Does anyone know if you buy a Dream passport and 3 fantasy passports can all your party get into disney 1 hour before opening and offer available to Dream passport holders and not fantasy.

Thanks for your help Estelle

Hi Wendy and welcome to the DIS!

As there will be 9 of you eating, the discount on dining will certainly be most welcome!

Hi Estelle and welcome to the DIS!

Here is info about both the Dream and Fantasy passes and here in French is the official site.

20% family discount is available when buying 5 or more passes but unfortunately it is only for families living at the same address.

You will only all be able to get access to the park one hour before opening if you all buy Dream passes.
