Tokyo Disney Resort is re-introducing free line skipping with their 40th Anniversary Priority Pass, a replacement for the retired FastPass service. Tokyo Disney Resort will be the only Disney park in the world to offer free line skipping after the service ended at other parks during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary Priority Pass
The Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary Priority Pass will be available beginning July 26. An end date for the pass hasn’t been announced yet.
To use Priority Pass, guests can download the Tokyo Disney Resort App and log in with their Disney account. Guests that do not have a smartphone can speak to a Cast Member at the attraction they wish to enjoy.
Using the app, guests may select eligible experiences after they enter either Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea. Priority Pass will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Each park ticket can be used to obtain a Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary Priority Pass for one person. Access to an experience will be permitted for one guest per 40th Anniversary Priority Pass. Guests 3 and under can access an attraction with someone who has a Priority Pass.
After obtaining a 40th Anniversary Priority Pass for an attraction, guests can obtain one for another experience 120 minutes later or after the start time of their first Priority Pass — whichever comes first. Guests can also get a second Priority Pass for an experience after using the first one or after the designated time to use the first one has passed.
Guests will not be able to select the time to access the attraction. This will be chosen for them.
After making a selection, guests can enter the chosen attraction using the Priority Access Entrance at the specified time and enjoy a shorter wait time.
40th Anniversary Priority Passes that have become temporarily unavailable may become available again. Depending on park conditions, the Priority Pass may not be available on certain dates.
The following attractions will offer the Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary Priority Pass:
- Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
- Space Mountain
- Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters
- Big Thunder Mountain
- Pooh’s Hunny Hunt
- Haunted Mansion
- Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek
- Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull
- 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
- Turtle Talk
- Nemo & Friends SeaRider
- The Magic Lamp Theater
- Raging Spirits
The special version of Aquatopia will be an eligible Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary Priority Pass experience for a limited period through September 6.
Attractions currently covered under the Disney Premier Access upcharge service — Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast, The Happy Ride with Baymax, and Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland, as well as Soaring: Fantastic Flight, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Tower of Terror, and Toy Story Mania at Tokyo DisneySea — will remain as individual purchases similar to Individual Lightning Lanes at the domestic parks.
