Disneyland Paris introduces Disney Premier Access in favor of FastpassPublished: July 6, 2021 / Last Updated: July 6, 2021 / By: Arvid Bux
Ever since Disneyland Paris opened its gates again, guests have not had the opportunity to use Fastpass. This was the same last year when the resort opened. The resort did introduce Standby Pass but it was only available for a short time and didn’t return with the most recent reopening.
Today the resort announced that Fastpass will no longer return and that in place guests can use Standby Pass and Premier Access.
Guests of the resort were already introduced to Standby Pass last year. Standby Pass allows guests to spend part of their wait time for select attractions outside of the physical queue line. The service does not provide immediate access to an attraction.
Standby Pass can be activated during certain periods of the day, subject to availability and dependent on day-to-day needs in the parks. When activated, guests can use the Disneyland Paris App to book a time slot to enter the physical queue line of an attraction and return to stand in the queue at that time.

Disney Premier Access
A new offering is Disney Premier Access. Well, it is not entirely new as pre-covid the resort already offered paid Fastpasses under the name Super FastPass and Ultimate FastPass. Disney Premier Access is just the next iteration.
Disney Premier Access will be introduced later this summer through the Disneyland Paris app. This optional digital service gives guests the ability to skip the regular queue line for some of the most beloved attractions, including a mix of thrill rides, Disney classics, and experiences.
From anywhere inside the parks, guests can use the Disneyland Paris 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.
Improve Guest Experience
On the latest additions to the Disneyland Paris App, Juliette Bron, Vice President Digital & Data says:
“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. Guests expect seamless experiences more and more, and with technology’s evolution, we have an opportunity – and a responsibility – to match their expectations.”
