Planning first trip to DLP in 2020 (summer - right before French schools out but after most UK get out). Assume it will be busy. We live 1 hr from WDW, are DVC, and been to DL as well and definitely love everything about FP ability! Not a fan of the "old school" paper way (did it in DL a few years back and made it work) but am interested in the Ultimate FP at DLP. However, see if you stay in a suite at Disneyland hotel you get a VIP pass that seems essentially like a Ultimate FP. We definitely want to stay at an on-site hotel and leaning towards Disneyland Hotel (kids would love the new Avenger one but no idea of actual opening)
- We should arrive at DLP by noon on Thurs. Have all day Fri in parks and then leave park Sat around noon. Would it be worth getting Ultimate FP for the Thurs and Sat if only there for half days? Wanted to see if one could do the non FP rides and not be waiting hours in line for those?
- Can we get Ultimate FP for one day of stay? Are they paper? Would be interested to see how they work. Also, am I looking at the numbers correctly that for a family of 4 for high season the UFP would be about $800 per day?!
- Other option would be to stay in Disneyland hotel Suite and get the hotel VIP pass (seems just like Ultimate FP). Definitely cheaper than 3 days of Ultimate FP for 3 days plus hotel. If anyone has stayed in suite would love to get perspective if the "extras" there are worth it (I know it is all relative but any input is appreciated!)
