Tokyo Disney Resort Implementing “Standby Pass” Virtual Queue System at Select Attractions Starting September 23

Last updated:

Long lines are an eternal problem at Tokyo Disney Resort, with wait times on peak days frequently exceeding 120-150 minutes for the most popular attractions. But it seems the resort is taking steps to slightly alleviate that issue, with a new “Standby Pass” virtual queue system coming to two attractions at Tokyo DisneySea starting September 23rd.


Two extremely popular attractions at Tokyo DisneySea—Soaring: Fantastic Flight and Toy Story Mania—will now require a Standby Pass to experience. Standby Passes may only be obtained once daily on the Tokyo Disney Resort App while supplies last, and Guests may only hold one Standby Pass at a time. It’s unknown at present how this will affect FastPass at these attractions once the system resumes, or whether it will be expanded to other attractions.

This system is very similar to the Standby Pass system introduced earlier this year at Shanghai Disneyland. Its unknown whether this system is permanent or only being utilized during the adjusted operations phase, as it seems to have been in Shanghai. Either way, its now either more relaxing or more stressful to plan your day at Tokyo DisneySea, depending on your familiarity with the system.
