Since the reopening of Tokyo Disney Resort in 2020, one service has been notably absent, the FastPass. Until recently, we didn’t know what would happen with the service and whether it would return. We finally got an answer nearly two years after the reopening.
On May 19, 2022, Tokyo Disney Resort launched Disney Premier Access for select attractions and entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
Disney Premier Access
The Disney Premier Access is a paid FastPass available at popular rides and entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea.
You’ll select on the day of your visit to the Park, and this cost is for one-time use only.
The regular standby line is still available for these two attractions at no additional cost! We’ll probably see more attractions added in the future. There’s no news on the return of the FastPass system, which I highly doubt we’ll see again.
Depending on availability, you’ll buy the Disney Premier Access through the Tokyo Disney Resort app.
Disney Premier Access Cost
Here’s what the Disney Premier Access costs.
|Attraction/Show||Price (Per Person)|
|Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast||¥2,000|
|Baymax Happy Ride||¥1,500|
|Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights (from April 15, 2023)||¥2,500|
|Disney Harmony in Color (from April 15, 2023)||¥2,500|

This new service is part of Oriental Land Company’s plan to create a seamless guest experience. The company has also mentioned they’re reducing the overall capacity of the parks compared to pre-COVID to help with the overcrowding issues that the Parks had prior.
What are your thoughts?
What are your thoughts on this new paid FastPass service coming to Tokyo Disney Resort?
I’m happy we finally have an answer to what would happen with FastPass. It’s not surprising that the Parks here in Japan have decided to go the paid route since that’s what all the other Disney Parks have also begun doing.

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!
