Paid FastPass begins this week at Disneyland Paris, giving us a first look at pricing and how this may translate to a similar experience rumored for Walt Disney World.

These are the current prices at Disneyland Paris, per person for a ride within a designated time window with minimal wait. Pricing is dynamic, so may change depending on demand, time of day and season.

  • Autopia (Speedway) $9.50
  • Big Thunder Mountain $14
  • Buzz Lightyear $18
  • Remy's Ratatouille Adventure $14
  • Space Mountain $11
  • Star Tours $9.50
  • Peter Pan's Flight $18
  • Tower of Terror $18

This is how Disneyland Paris describes the new service.

Disney Premier Access

Additionally, as part of our ongoing commitment to provide guests with a range of options to optimize trip planning, guests can choose to purchase Disney Premier Access on the Disneyland Paris App when it launches this Summer. This optional digital service allows guests to enjoy the ability to skip the regular queue line for some of our most beloved attractions, including a mix of thrill-rides, Disney classics and experiences for the whole family. From anywhere inside the parks, guests can use the App to book an assigned time slot for select attractions, with prices at launch starting at 8€ per person per ride depending on the attraction and day of use. Guests without a smartphone can also purchase Disney Premier Access at select locations in the parks. By choosing Disney Premier Access, guests have the option for more flexibility in planning their day and will be able to spend even more time enjoying attractions, shows and so much more.

As we continue to assess many aspects of our business and make changes where they are needed for both the current environment and the future of our resort, the addition of Standby Pass and Disney Premier Access will provide alternative services for our guests and the previous FASTPASS service at Disneyland Paris will not be returning. We are always working to enhance our offerings and the way that our guests experience them based on valuable feedback for ongoing improvements across the resort.

Disney is yet to announce any paid program for Walt Disney World at this time, but you can learn more about how it may work in our previous article.

I can see scenarios where "standby" closes once they reach capacity on some combination of standby/FP/FP+/Lightning/etc.

You heard it here first - Disney Magic Tickets!!! For a price, you can get what will be considered “A through E” tickets. Each one will… oh wait… 😂

That's fine. And will be an option. If I intend to wait many hours on headliners when I'm there on a busy week. I've accepted I'll need to pay more. But allow it so that I can buy multiple attractions at once.

I hate all these what if’s that are swimming around my head but, will you still be able to join a standby queue a few minutes before park closing? Or will you need a standby pass for that time frame that you got in the genie app several hours prior?

DLP's DPA is pay per ride. There are only two per ride or buy a package of rides. What else can there possibly be?? I've seen responses above mentioning packages might not be am option.

Chapek feels that any time spent standing in line is less time shopping. Now, he wants us standing around so we can be shopping for lines.
