Shanghai Disneyland Removes FastPass Service, Now Only Offers Paid Line-Jumping

When Shanghai Disneyland reopened, the theme park was utilizing the Standby Pass system, the FastPass system, and Disney Premier Access. Disney Premier Access is a paid FastPass type reservation system (similar to the MaxPass system found at Disneyland.)

However, it seems Shanghai Disneyland has quietly removed the FastPass option from the park. Friend of the site @angeliquemagique on Instagram has given us permission to share her story and the screenshots below of her recent visit to the park where she documented the updated queue system in her stories.

Walking up the queue of Tron Lightcycle Power Run was when @angeliquemagique noticed that the FastPass option was gone, with just the Standby queue and Disney Premier Access options available.

@angeliquemagique was nice enough to go through the Shanghai Disneyland app, showing us the different prices and sets for the Disney Premier Access pass.

The My Plans section of the app is where you’re able to buy your Disney Premier Access passes.

There are several different options and sets with different combinations of rides available in each set.

The three set of attractions are ¥180 per person, or roughly $25.47 per person in USD. Six attractions is ¥330 ($46.70) and eight is ¥440 ($62.27.)

There are different categories such as a family set and an adventure set, so there should be plenty of options to fit your family’s needs.

Early June it was announced that the reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks would not be offering FastPass+, virtual queues, or single rider queue options for attractions. With these changes, do you think this system could be coming to Walt Disney World Resort? Leave us a comment below with your thoughts on the changes!

Digital e-ticket. And you can’t really pick what you want. Seems the packs come pre-set. Guess they have to or everyone would pick the e ticket ride.
Looks like around $7.50 an attraction.

Great. More ways for the Mouse to nickle and dime it’s customers. I know times are tough with the pandemic, but Disney Parks need to stop finding ways to jack up prices while providing fewer or inferior services.

I believe this is the beginning of the end of fast passes world wide.it’s all about the money for Disney. After all they are apart of big corpa.

Some of those prices are high but honestly, if the pricing was in line with Maxpass at Disneyland, I’d much prefer that option over FastPass plus. Maxpass makes accessing the rides so much easier without having to plan your day two months in advance.

If they did this at Disney world that would be my tipping point for being done. We love going to the parks and spent a month total at them this year but to add what would be another $100 a day for a family of four that’s already spending 10k a year there. No just no way

Keep the fast pass. It gives everyone a somewhat equal opportunity. Many guests just can’t afford an extra $100 per day. Disney if you do this you loose more of your not rich families like me.

So basically they are going back to a traditional ticket system that was in place when Disneyland opened. You paid to get into the park then you paid to get tickets to get in attractions. Seems like the county fair way of doing things especially when tickets costs are SO HIGH. I see universal and other theme parks winning this game and Disney losing big time if they implement it here. Remember, Disney isn’t the major stake holder in the Asian markets they are only the face of the franchise. Its very different here.

No one every announced that virtual ques won’t be available. In fact there’s a whole new virtual que feature on the apps. Get your facts from a reputable source

Do people not read the article? As shown in those photos, Shanghai now has the *free* Standby Passes, a virtual queuing system, which replaces the Fastpass system. And anyway the queues for the popular rides are 10 minutes long because there’s a park reservation system in place.
 
So it looks like Disney has simply dropped one of the two free virtual queuing systems (either temporarily whilst the restrictions are in place or permanently). And given the queue lengths no one needs to buy the Premier passes anyway.

You don’t usually update permanent signage unless you don’t plan on going back. We would assume FastPass just won’t return when this is over.
