EU pricing probe dropped as Disneyland Paris to abandon old pricing policy.


Disneyland Paris has reached a deal with the European Commission that will ensure that all customers have equal access to on-line deals, The Financial Times is reporting.

German and United Kingdom consumers had complained that they could not access cheaper offers on the website of Disneyland Paris, something that residents of France could enjoy, the newspaper said on Friday.

Under the new deal with the European Commission, Disneyland Paris is abandoning its old pricing policy. The agreement will be formally signed “in the coming days,” The Financial Times said.

A spokesperson for Disneyland Paris said that they were “very happy with the co-operation” over the deal.

At this years Euro Disney S.C.A. Annual General Meeting, Chief Financial Officer Mark Stead said that the resort were going to be releasing fewer discounts during this financial year from the base price.

Disneyland Paris has faced negative publicity over its allegedly unfair on-line pricing policy since 2011. The European Commission had asked the French authorities to investigate the matter in July 2015, but under the new deal the probe will be dropped.
