What’s Happening:

  • Beginning this summer, Disneyland Paris will be offering a new paid program called Disney Premier Access, which replaces the previous FastPass program.
  • The optional paid add-on will start at 8€ per person (about $10 in USD) per ride, implying that higher demand attractions could charge more.
  • The service will be part of an upcoming update to the Disneyland Paris mobile app, which is how Guests will purchase their Disney Premier Access pass to skip the line at attractions.
  • Locations throughout the park will be available to assist Guests without a smartphone who wish to purchase a Disney Premier Access pass.
  • Despite its name, Disneyland Paris’ Disney Premier Access program is unrelated to the Disney+ Premier Access feature, which allows subscribers to access theatrical releases like Black Widow and Jungle Cruise on the same day they release in theaters.
  • While Disneyland Paris is retiring the FastPass service, they have also extended the complimentary Standby Pass program, which debuted in October of 2020.
  • Standby Pass allows Guests to spend part of their wait time for an attraction outside of the queue, the difference being that it does not provide immediate access to the attraction the way Disney Premier Access will.
  • Access to Standby Pass will have specific times of the day where Guests can activate it, subject to availability.

What They’re Saying:

  • Juliette Bron, Vice President Digital & Data: “We are always looking for ways to improve the guest experience. The return of Standby Pass, the introduction of Disney Premier Access and each new digital enhancement across our parks and hotels is part of our commitment to provide innovative products and services that take into consideration ongoing feedback and not only meet but exceed the expectations of our guests.”
