In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Tokyo Disney Resort has introduced a special “40th Anniversary Priority Pass” (free of charge) for a limited duration starting July 26, 2023.
Update (February 7, 2024): Tokyo Disney Resort has confirmed the priority pass will continue being used even after April 1, 2024, when the 40th anniversary concludes. It’s still not known when this service will end.
The limited-time pass allows guests to enjoy select attractions at Tokyo Disney Resort and Tokyo DisneySea with reduced waiting times. The 40th Anniversary Priority Pass will be available on the Tokyo Disney Resort App.
Much like the now-discontinued FastPass system and the paid Premier Access Pass, the Priority Pass (free of charge) allows guests to access the attractions via a dedicated lane at a designated time, resulting in shorter waiting periods.
After entering the park, guests can choose from the following rides through the Tokyo Disney Resort App.
- Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
- Space Mountain
- Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters
- Big Thunder Mountain
- Pooh’s Hunny Hunt
- The Haunted Mansion
- Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek
- Aquatopia *Limited to summer wet programs (until September 6, 2023)
- Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull
- 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea
- Turtle Talk
- Nemo & Friends Sea Rider
- Magic Lamp Theater
- Raging Spirits

More Things to Do in Tokyo
My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!
