Disneyland Paris offers cheapest annual pass, Tokyo Disney Resort most expensive!

Disneyland Resort in California raised the prices of their annual passes not so long ago. This made us wonder which Disney Resort offered the best value for money. When you check out our comparing table below, you’ll see that Disneyland Paris offers by far the cheapest Annual Pass (Passeport Annuel Dream), as well as some of the best perks.

On the other hand, Tokyo Disney Resort (owned and operated by the Oriental Land Company) offers the most expensive annual pass, with no perks at all. No discounts, no free parking, only access to both parks. Surprisingly, the Annual Passes for Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World cost almost the same, while the Disney World pass has more parks to offer, as well as the water parks, Disney Quests and one of the golf courses.

The Hong Kong Disneyland Magic Pass is slightly more expensive then Disneyland Paris and offers equal discounts and perks, however, the resort is a lot smaller with only one park, less attractions and no Disney Village-like area.

Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival Bruges 2011 inspired by Disneyland Paris

The 11th edition of the Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival in Bruges, Belgium ended today. The festival was based on the magical world of Disneyland Paris and its world famous characters. In the summer of 2011, Disneyland Paris already was the inspiration for the Sand Sculpture Festival in Blankenberge, Belgium. That’s no coincidence as that both festivals are organised by the same company and supported by the Belgian Disney Parks & Resorts team.

We took took a tour of the festival one day before all sculpture ended as a puddle of water and returned with these photos!
