    The same small print applies to all packages, I just added it under the Classic Package only or you’d be scrolling all day. Now, value for money is subjective to every individual so I will be doing this from my point of view. First reaction? Ridiculously overpriced even for the Classic Package, the Ultimate FANtasia Package is almost beyond comprehension, especially when you consider this is merely for Hotel Santas Fe, what ungodly price will be charged for the Disneyland Hotel? Also The perfect package for our ultimate fans – really? So in Disneyland Paris’ eyes the ultimate fan is the one who can give them the most money. This may be what they say behind closed doors in budget meetings, but to advertise like this to the general public is very arrogant and a real spit in the face to those of us who save hard to just visit Disneyland Paris for a few days to enjoy the magic when we can. I guess that makes me just an everyday fan. At least I have something to aspire too, via a lottery win.

    Okay, knee-jerk reaction out of the way, where is my head at now? Not much different I’m afraid. As a family of 3, this is an absolute non-starter at €1,200+ before we factor in travel costs and money spent whilst we are there. That’s as much as we have paid to stay in Hotel Cheyenne for 4 nights at the height of summer, with a half board meal plan included for every day we are there. I realise there is some very unique entertainment being put on, but it’s not worth the price tag, not through my eyes anyway. There will be a limited number of standalone tickets available in April for the inaugural party, but we have no idea on quantity and price.

    So the question I asked was, is Disneyland Paris Disney FanDaze good value? Based on these prices an unequivocal no. But that doesn’t mean others won’t find it value for money, and what is on offer could be what their dreams are made of and no price is too much. For them, I’m happy they get the opportunity, but at the risk of ruffling feathers, though one should never be afraid to speak one’s mind, this whole announcement has soured the way I look at Disneyland Paris a little. Seeing somewhere I love so much, offering something like this, but at the same time pricing so many people out, and labelling only those that can afford it as the ultimate fans, well it doesn’t sit right with me. Disneyland Paris isn’t something we are all entitled to and I get that. I’m more than happy to save and go when I can, but Disney FanDaze just seems to have crossed the line as far as I’m concerned. Packages go on sale on January 15th, so get saving, quick!

    I’d love to know what you all think, about the packages and prices announced today. Have your plans changed now or are you going regardless? Which package will you go for? I will be doing a podcast about Disney FanDaze in Disneyland Paris, so either leave a comment here or email podcast@dedicatedtodlp.com – I’d love to get as many opinions as possible, positive and negative.

    Hi Steve, wow, urm i’m in full agreement with you, I hate it that to be a true fan of anything means that you spend more money than others or go more often, i’m a huge liverpool fc fan but i’ve never seen them play, living on the south coast i’ve never been able to afford it and although I have now been to Anfield it took 30 years to get there. Disney for me and my husband and for many many people out there is a luxury and yes they are a business and they are such a huge corporation that it is money money money for them but do they have to be so blatant about it? Could it have been like photopass and we could get extra things for an extra €100 or could it have been for 4/5 days instead of 2? For that price it’s extortionate. I’m not suprised at all as they are after all a business but in a country and a world where the cost of living is growing and we strive just to get a few days away, did they have to make us feel more cash poor and strike our dreams?
