I will be sending them by email in advance of the meeting. So those they can not answer on the day or need more detailed replies will get answered later.

If you have any Shareholder questions/raise issues/make suggestions just email the Shareholders Club, that is what they are there for. If they do not know the answer they will pass it on to a department that does.

Thank you so much Jonjo for voicing all our questions on our behalf to the shareholders round table.

Could you ask about the possibility of a photopass like they have in WDW for the DLP photographers photo's with characters. I know they trialled something similar but haven't read whether they plan to put in something like this in the long term. Also when we went to Meet Mickey the DLP photographer was just finishing for the day and we found a lot of the time we queued to have our photo taken and no official photographer. This seems to be a recent thing??

Thanks Jonjo, that's great

Look forward to seeing what you manage to find out

I've just realised this is coming up this week - wish I could go along!

Others have already mentioned the poor organisation of character meets so the only other thing I would like to ask about is their smoking policy. Personally I think smoking should be completely banned in the parks however until they decide to introduce this (if they ever do) I would like to know what they plan to do about the prevalence of smoking outside the designated areas. This is one of the most common complaints I read about in trip reports and I think we would all like to see the CMs being more proactive.

Looking forward to hearing how it went!

You already have a long list, but if you get the chance:
Reading here and on another forums including the french DCP forum I know I'm not alone in thinking that this Summer seasons prices are rather high, couple this with the lack of shows, specifically the loss of Tarzan and Fantillusion, is he not worried that returning guests myself included are going to come away pretty disillusioned with DLP, that's if they bother to book at all.

Is there any chance we can have more notice of refurbs and closures, 6 months would be nice.

Can we have an ETA for Ratatouille

Hope you enjoy the experience

Perhaps too late but for me this is a really good question.

Shareholder with 100 shares = 15%

Dream passport with no shares = 20%

Somehing is wrong....

It feels wrong, but if you look at it from the company angle then I think they would argue something along these lines:

A Dream Passport owner will pay their €200 for the 12 months. At the end of 12 months they will potentially pay another €200 for a further 12 months.

A shareholder however put it's money into the company once - and then has forever to access the discount.

Now I realise in reality this is not how it works. A Shareholder is likely to then spend a small fortune in order to visit (travel, hotels, tickets/annual passports) and is likely to keep on visiting after the Dream owner has perhaps given up.

But, I wonder if this is the way they look at it.

Iain.

Hi Jonjo and DLP DISboarders,

I don't get the time to post on this forum very often, as I am always very busy as Destination Expert on the Trip Advisor Disneyland Paris forum which takes up most of my time when I am not working or sleeping! I do follow posts on here when I get the chance though, to see what you guys are discussing and have given links for some of your very useful threads on our Forum.

I will be at the Shareholders Round Table Event tomorrow, so would be more than glad to join you for a drink and DLP chat afterwards.

We have had a similar thread on our forum discussing changes or improvements that posters would like to see in Resort, and many have the same opinions and suggestions as posters on here, plus some really great ideas. Posters here may find it interesting -

Kind Regards to all,

Figgy.

I dont know really because even thought you are shareholder you still need to buy a ticket to park in any form single, pass or with hotel... so its not you are spending less, it will be the same with shares on top of it...

I'm sorry you are not going Ware Bears - it would have been lovely to meet you.

This recent Trip Report on our DLP forum highlights some problems that really do need addressing in Resort. First time visitor, had a dreadful experience. So sad.

We have also had some recent TRs from people taking disabled children or adults who also had a very disappointing experience - special adapted very expensive pushchair stolen, rude and unhelpful Cast Members. Problems using the Easy Access Card or Disability Card. Security checks CMs even tried to put a feeding bag ( connected to a child's stomach by tube) through the Xray machine, arguing in French with the parent who was trying to explain!!
It just should not happen....

Hi Figgy we have plans to go for a drink after the meeting with a few members from the Magic Forum and are more than welcome to join us.

These meetings tend to be focused on the financial side of things than operational but I have a feeling a lot of UK shareholders will have a lot of park operational questions tomorrow for the CEO.

Kind Regards to all,

Figgy.
There are some brilliant ideas on your link, thank you! I particularly like the loyalty points scheme for frequent hotel guests, EMH for BTM, EMH in Studios too, Peter Pan show back on pirate ship, fridges in rooms, more double plus 2x single bed configurations and an onsite apparthotel within walking distance (any space left for this?) would be perfect. Lots of things I hadn't thought of.
