I have had an annual pass before, Fantasy, and appreciate how much they are worth it in terms of savings in shops alone. I got that one by taking a temp pass to the pass annuel place in the Parc.
 Hubby and I are planning a trip (well, I am lol) for next Spring and I only just found out about the pay monthly deal!!! Sounds like a plan! I've read thru the downloadable form, is it really that easy to sort? I'm guessing it'll only be about 40 quid more than if I bought a stand alone entry ticket for my short stay e.g five days 2 parks entry. So, yeh, it'll be totally worth it and easier to manage paying it off monthly for me as I'm on minimum wage as it is.
Can I get some reassurance/encouragement that it's the right way to go? TIA.

If you do it online you have to fill in the forms and then send some paperwork to France, including the application form, copy of identification and some information about your bank account. That needs to be sent within 10 days of the online application.

So it is actually quite simple, yes :)

Thanks. I'd just be a tad apprehensive about sending bank info in the mail, but I would send it recorded delivery or equivalent.

So my IBAN isn't on my bank statements (I'm with Lloyds. From googling, it seems some people have the IBAN on their statements, and others not).

I've screenshotted my online bank, showing the IBAN, etc, but this doesn't show my name (Just Mr. Surname) and my account number and sort code. So I'm sending this and a picture of my bank card (with long number removed), to show the account is mine. Will this suffice? Don't know what else to do otherwise :(

Hello. Looking for some advice from any resident experts please. We bought magic plus annual passes in May and we are now looking to go back just before Christmas 2018. We have done this for the past 2 years but never with annual passes. I was a little sceptical when we got the AP as to how much we would save. My wife has called to get a price for the 3 of us from 18-12 to 22-12 so 3 nights with halfboard at the sequoia lodge. She was quoted 861 looking online direct today at DLP site I could book the same stay with park tickets for 1004.
Does this sound about right? I know they have an offer on with free halfboard but with annual passes a saving of 140 doesn't sound very good to me.
Any help greatly appreciated

I'd check something like booking.com where it is room only prices - I suspect you'd find it much cheaper!

Thanks for that, 343 so a 520 saving but no halfboard. That's more like what I was expecting just can't understand why Disney quoted so high with pass discounts. Thank

I have a few questions, because the DLP site is a little vague.
If I buy a magic + AP on the day, will I be able to use it immediately if its not a block out date (because I read online that that I wouldn't be able to do that).

(I am aware that I can buy them online, but I prefer to do it in person)

Yes you van use a magic + ap on the day you buy it. With a discovery ap you can use it on the day you buy it. But not on the two days after.

Hello everyone. I have a question regarding the sponsorship thing.

I used to have an AP - magic plus - it lasted until mid-2018 and I did not renew it. I am planning on getting an Infinity AP in a couple of weeks. Will I still be eligible to be sponsored and consequently receive a 10% discount on the AP fee?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that you can only be sponsored if you haven't had a pass in the two years before your new pass starts. Sorry.

Thanks for the answer. It is unfortunate, but it is what it is. :)

Nowadays it's even 2-and-a-half years, counting from the last day of validity of the "old" AP.

Hi guys.
So I know that the answers to my questions may well be somewhere in the previous 117 pages,but honestly I think it is just easier to re-ask as it were, so here goes.
Mrs EHG and I are looking into options surrounding annual passes, specifically the Magic Plus pass.
What is the most efficient way to purchase this pass? How much discount does it apply to Disney hotel bookings (in real terms i.e. are weekends still more pricey, or do the hotel prices stay fairly stable?
Can you still buy any of the meal plans (with our without staying at a Disney hotel,and is there any discount on them?
Is there a discount on the Premium rooms too (Golden forest for example)?
Thanks Guys...
