Tokyo Disney Resort Expanding “Standby Pass” Virtual Queue System to Both Parks Starting December 22, Adding New Attractions

Back in September, the Oriental Land Company introduced the Standby Pass virtual queue system to Tokyo DisneySea for Soaring: Fantastic Flight and Toy Story Mania. The system, previously seen at Disneyland Paris and Shanghai Disneyland, allows Guests to wait in a virtual queue for their attraction and return for a minimal wait, similar to FastPass. After a successful test, Standby Pass is being massively expanded to cover both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea starting December 22nd!

Tokyo Disneyland


The following Tokyo Disneyland attractions will require a Standby Pass starting December 22nd:

  • Big Thunder Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Pooh’s Hunny Hunt
  • Space Mountain
  • Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters
  • Monsters, Inc.: Ride & Go Seek

Several of these attractions have seen extended queues far out into their lands or even beyond, particularly Big Thunder Mountain and Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters. This move should help alleviate those longer queues.

Tower of Terror at Tokyo DisneySea

The following attractions will join Soaring: Fantastic Flight and Toy Story Mania in requiring Standby Pass starting December 22nd:

  • Turtle Talk
  • Tower of Terror
  • Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull
  • Raging Spirits
  • The Magic Lamp Theater
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth

Attractions requiring Standby Pass may only be experienced once per day and require use of the Tokyo Disney Resort App, now available in English. Unlike the Entry Request lottery system, all Guests are able to obtain Standby Passes as long as they are available, and can only hold one at a time until their next pass becomes valid.

Guests will be required to obtain Standby Passes for these attractions in order to experience them starting December 22nd. Be prepared by downloading the Tokyo Disney Resort App ahead of time and registering a Disney account so you don’t lose the chance to ride your favorite attractions!
