I've been tasked with organizing a family trip to Disneyland Paris in 2023. Disneyland Paris as a solo is easy, I've done it 3 times now, but this is a very different trip.
Right now details are very open.

The group will be
  • Me - Expert Disney parks planner
  • My mum - just happy to be there, has been to Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World but just goes with the flow
  • My sister - has been to Walt Disney World when we were young, never to Disneyland Paris, is not a parks person, this trip is for her daughter, my niece.
  • Niece will be 8 years old at the time of the trip, wont know what hit her, will be living her best life and wont want to come home
  • Possible 2 of my sisters friends, who want to go to Disneyland Paris as it sounds fun and theres a Disney expert planning the trip

Some of the group will be travelling from Ireland, some will be travelling from England.

At this stage, logistics are not even being discussed, they just want a basic idea of budget and the accommodation options.

My first thought was either Cheyenne or Santa Fe which would be fine if was just us, but then with 1 or possible 2 of my sisters friends joining us we would need 2 rooms.

My second thought is that my sister could drive from England and Davy Crockett Ranch or Village Nature would then be an option.

The only thing about staying offsite is that we would be reliant on my sister for transportation. I do rope drop to park close but I doubt if everyone else would have that stamina. It would mean having to wait until everyone is ready in the morning to go to the park and then leaving as a group. It would mean we couldn't come and go to the parks as we wanted.

However I know the self catering aspect and having a lodge building just for our group would be something my sister would like.

I'm just brainstorming at the moment, putting ideas down and seeing what could be suitable for us.

Time would be October Half Term due to my niece and school. I know its not ideal for crowds and prices buts that's what we have to go with.

I'm trying to decide this too. I've been designated planner for a family trip in 2023. Most likely we will need 2 rooms, so price may be the deciding factor at the time of booking. I need to make a list of pros and cons for each, as I am just the gatherer of information, the booking decision will be made by someone else.
I have been to Disneyland California twice in 2022, January and June and I used Genie+ on both trips.

I love it. I love using the App and I found my days were so much more productive than with the old fastpass system.

There is huge push back against Genie+ from the local AP Disneyland California people, so as a result, those that do use it have a great experience.

In California Adventures in June at Toy Story Mania I waited 20 minutes in the Lightning Lane queue. The standby was listed at 120 minutes but I heard the cm say it was more like 140 minutes. I watched the cm at the merge point. He let 6 from the standby through then about 20 from the lightning lane.

For Disneyland California Genie+ works really well. I cant see the point of waiting 100 or more  minutes in standby queues in the burning sun.

Also in Disneyland California Genie + includes photopass. In all the years I have been going to Disneyland California I never got Photopass as it was a paid extra. Now that its included on Genie+ I used it on both trips. I got so many really great photos of me in the parks, something I never had before. Ride photos are also included, for the first time I now have a great photo of me on Radiator Springs Racers.

So, since the forum has had pretty low counts post wise lately, are there any plans for the future of the forum?

Not sure how many people are still around?

Disneyland Paris Trip Planning / The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands
« Last post by Qscout on November 18, 2021, 11:28:42 AM »
Can you still get to see this show without paying the surcharge? We are going to Paris midweek, and are hoping that the parks aren't that busy. Is it possible to walk in to the Lion King show without paying the surcharge for guaranteed seating?

Does anyone know how people have gained access to the parks on previous anniversary date, as in the 12th April? Is it a ticketed event or just general admission as any other day?
Thanks  :)

As far as I know, it has been general admission as normal.

And it's true... right down to the date!

👉 The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands returning – with paid ‘guaranteed access’

Of course, there's also an added upcharge. Full details of that above.

Would you be willing to pay €15 per person for "guaranteed access", skipping a long wait outside the theatre?
