There is no denying the amount of change that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought, not only in American Disney Parks but in international ones as well. We have seen several Disney Parks close down and as of just a few weeks ago, both Shanghai Disney and Hong Kong Disney closed yet again due to an outbreak of the virus.

The way Guests visit and interact with the Parks has changed as well, with lots of rides, attractions, and shows missing from the full lineup of experiences. However, things seem to be heading back to a more “normal” state with lots of missing elements finally returning.

Things have changed quite a bit at one international Park, however, with the way Guests purchase tickets being completely different.

Usually, Guests were able to purchase tickets at the Park gates when first arriving, though the Park reservation system that Disney has in place at the moment has made this process considerably harder. Now, at Disneyland Paris, Guests no longer have the option to purchase tickets at the front gates.

According to the official website for Disneyland Paris, Guests are now unable to purchase Park tickets at the entry gates. A message can be seen on the website which explains how the process works now:

Explore our range of Park Tickets and choose the right one for you! Tickets sales on the gate are unavailable (besides special rates tickets), please purchase your Park tickets in advance of your visit online.

Internationally, many Guests are starting to get excited about the upcoming Avengers Campus expansion at Disneyland Paris. The first version of this Marvel-centric land opened in Disneyland’s California Adventure last year and featured a whole host of Marvel-themed attractions and entertainment.

While there is not an exact opening date for Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris, Guests should be excited after seeing this new art as well as what is available at Disneyland’s Avengers Campus in Anaheim, California. Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris will be themed completely around the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and will feature countless Marvel characters like Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Loki, Black Panther, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, and countless others.
