Is Disneyland Paris following Walt Disney World's lead with annual passes? Plus, Disney Cruise Line sets up port in Singapore and Disney World tells you why you should visit this summer.
Disneyland Paris is Pausing Annual Pass Sales
In a familiar trend at other resorts, Disneyland Paris is now the latest to apparently pause the sale of annual passes. Stories are circulating that an entirely new annual pass sales offering may be coming.
At Walt Disney World, Disney continues to defy the odds with no new sales of annual passes. Meanwhile, Annual Pass park entry lanes sit empty; leading us to believe that they are nowhere annual pass sales capacity, but instead are purposely not selling annual passes because guests (like us) continue to pay full rack rate for park admission.
Will annual pass sales ever resume at Walt Disney World or is something else coming our way?
Disney Cruise Line to New Cruise Ship to Southeast Asia
Disney Cruise Line and the Singapore Tourism Board have agreed to collaborate to have a brand-new Disney cruise ship exclusively port in Singapore for at least five years, starting in 2025. More details about the maiden voyage, itineraries and onboard experiences will be announced at a later date.
The new ship will feature "innovative Disney experiences" along with the Disney Cruise style of entertainment, dining and more.
Disney has Released its Three Reasons to Be Excited for Walt Disney World this Summer (but these may not be the best reasons)
1. Special Discounted Resort Pricing: Limited Offer
Walt Disney World is offering summer travel deals with savings up to 25% on stays at select Disney Resort hotels.
2. Exclusive Early Morning Entry and Late Night Hours
One of the best benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is the option to take advantage of 30-minute early entry into the theme parks every day. Guests of Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels or Deluxe Villas can also enjoy extended evening hours, in select parks, on select nights.
3. Complimentary Overnight Self-Parking at Disney Hotels
Disney World recently brought back complimentary overnight self-parking for guests of Disney Resorts hotels. Disney Resort hotel guests also get complimentary standard parking at Walt Disney World theme parks.
