Do you plan a trip to Disneyland Paris and you are wondering if Magic Flex Disneyland Paris annual pass is the right choice for you?
Let’s discover together which are the benefits of this annual pass and when it is more convenient to buy it instead of a multi-day ticket or other annual passes available.
First of all, let’s discuss the prices practised by the park for a day ticket, a multi-day ticket and the Flex annual pass.
All the prices are for an adult person; children up to three years have free access while children with ages between 3 to 11 years have a discounted price.
The cost of a day ticket for 2 parks is around 100 euros, while a 2 days pass for 2 parks is almost 160 euros.
Magic Flex Disneyland Paris price for the whole year is almost 260 euros for an adult compared with the 3-day ticket which costs around 200 euros.
The difference between a 3-day pass and the annual pass is just 60 euros, but you will easily recover this money as the annual pass comes with many discounts and attractive offers.
Let’s discuss the discounts received when buying Magic Flex and see which are the pluses and minuses of this pass.
A very important factor which you should take into consideration when buying a pass is the blockout dates.
These blockout dates are the dates from the year when you cannot enter the park with a certain type of annual pass.
What I am trying to tell you is that Magic Flex Disneyland Paris annual pass did not offer you 365 days access to the park; you have just 300 days per year when you can visit the park.
The blockout dates for this type of pass are as follows ( subject to change so check the official website before you go):
- January 1st, 2nd
- February- 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st, 27th, 28th
- April- 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 24th, 25th
- May – 1st, 2nd, 8th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 22nd 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th
- July- 14th
- October- from 18th up to 31st
- December- from 18th to 31st
If you can plan your trip to avoid the dates indicated above and intend to stay more than 3 days in the park then this annual pass looks a great opportunity to buy.

Discounts included in the annual pass
There are very useful discounts which come together with the pass and here I am talking about:
10% shopping discount
And trust me this is very useful as everything from Disneyland Paris shops are expensive and a small discount is always welcomed.
All you have to do is to tell the vendor before buying that you have a Magic Flex Disneyland Paris annual pass and ask for the discount.
Don’t wait to get it directly as you might end up with nothing and once the receipt is printed there is nothing you can do.
10% restaurant discount
Like everything else from Disneyland Paris, food is pretty expensive and not too tasty.
You probably think that you are in France and the food has to be delicious but unfortunately, the food from the park is not that good.
The demand for food in Disneyland park is huge so the chefs don’t have enough time to prepare a high-quality meal; expect fast food quality with medium restaurants’ prices.
So, a 10% discount is always welcome and the good news is that the pass holder can use the discount not just for himself but for the whole family and friends.
20% off for extra park tickets
Disneyland has thought about everything, even to the cases when you would like to invite your family and friends to the Disney Village and Walt Disney Studios Park.
And for this particular reason, they offered 20 discount one day tickets 2 parks bought with your Magic Flex pass.
The maximum number of tickets per day which you can buy with 20% off is 5 for each Annual Pass holder.
Annual Photopass at a special price
Only if you get the Magic Flex pass you will have a special price for Annual Photopass, which, by the way, it is pretty expensive if you have to pay it in full.
But with Magic Flex the price for this service is only 65 euros; the price is restricted to one Annual PhotoPass per holder.
Unfortunately, with this pass, you don’t have any discounts for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, which is one of the most popular shows of Walt Disney Studios Park.
Only Magic Plus and Infinity pass holders get 20% to this incredible show!
Another service which is not provided together with this subscription is the Extra Magic Time.
This extra magic time means that you can enjoy early access to the Disney Parks before their official opening.
Like Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, this Extra Magic Time facility is offered only to Magic Plus and Infinity annual pass holders.
Magic Flex Disneyland Paris annual pass facilities
Besides the discounts mentioned above, there are also some gratuities included in the pass:
- Park hopping
- Annual parking pass
- Special prices for Disney hotels ( for room only not for any other additional facilities)
I personally don’t recommend you to stay in Disneyland hotels because they are quite expensive and the quality of services is lower than other hotels from the area.
When I visited Disneyland Paris I stayed at Radisson Blu Hotel Paris, a wonderful hotel with great reviews on the internet and reasonable prices.
There are shuttle buses from the hotel to the park and in about 15 minutes you are at Disneyland Paris.
If you are a family of three and plan to stay more than 3 days in the park you should consider taking the Magic Flex pass at least for one of the family members.
With the discounts you get for food, for other tickets and for shopping, it really worth paying the extra money.
