Do you want to skip the queues quickly with a special pass, like a VIP, and save time between attractions? Disneyland Paris has introduced Disney Premier Access. This FastPass ticket replaces the old system. Enjoy shorter wait times for the major attractions. Save time throughout your day and make the most of it with the new Disney Premier Access. Here are all the details and pricing for this new fast pass!
What is Disney Premier Access?
Formerly known as Fastpass, the Disney Premier Access is the name of the Disney fast pass ticket. It allows you to enter an attraction with priority, without having to endure long minutes of waiting at the entrance. This way, you can fully enjoy your day at Disneyland Paris. Basically, in front of the attraction you want to experience, there are two queues: one for visitors “WITHOUT Fastpass” and another for visitors “WITH Fastpass”. The “WITH Fastpass” queue usually lasts only a few minutes, or sometimes there is no wait at all.
Please do not confuse the Disney Premier Access ticket at Disneyland Paris with the Priority Cards dedicated to people with disabilities.
In order to obtain this famous Disneyland Fastpass, there are several methods that I will explain to you just below. But before that, it’s important to know that the Disney Premier Access system only works in the following attractions:
- Big Thunder Mountain
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Star Wars™ Hyperspace Mountain
- Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast
- Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
- Phantom Manor
- Orbitron (Only DPA One)
- Indiana Jones™ and the Temple of Peril
Walt Disney Studio Park
- Ratatouille: The Adventure
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™
- Crush’s Coaster
- CARS Road Trip
There are two different Disney Premier Access:
Disney Premier Access One
On the day of your visit, you can book Disney Premier Access One through your mobile device using the Disneyland Paris app. This pass entitles you to one priority access for the chosen attraction. You simply need to present the QR code obtained at the entrance of the attraction during the specified time slot. Of course, you can also get a DPA One for multiple attractions, as long as you adhere to the designated time slots. Please note that there is a limited number of Disney Premier Access One available for each time slot.
Disney Premier Access Ultimate
This pass operates differently and offers many more advantages than the One pass, for several reasons. The first and most important one is that you have priority access to all attractions except for Orbitron (refer to the list above). This allows you to save a tremendous amount of time throughout the day and fully enjoy your holidays at Disneyland Paris. The Disney Premier Access Ultimate is also much more convenient. With this pass, you have the freedom to choose the time you want to experience the attractions. Available in limited quantities, it’s clearly the Disney Premier Access option to choose if you want to maximize your enjoyment without any constraints.
Where can I find Premier Access tickets to attractions?

The prices of this new Fastpass.
The old pricing system for fast pass tickets was quite complex and ultimately difficult to optimize based on the attractions you wanted to enjoy with a VIP queue. The unlimited ticket system or the Family option are now gone. Disneyland Paris offers a user-friendly service here that, when used correctly, is cheaper than the old system.
In concrete terms, a Disney Premier Access ticket costs between €5 and €13 per person per attraction. As a reminder, the price of an old FastPass was €30/€45 for 3 attractions, and you didn’t get to choose the 3 attractions individually but rather a bundle of attractions. The price of the FastPass will vary depending on the crowd levels in the parks.
Unlike the old FastPass system, Disney Premier Access does not offer any discounts for Annual Pass holders.
Getting free FastPass tickets for Disneyland Paris is still possible!
Important information for families, free Disney Premier Access is valid for children under 3 years old, and it is unlimited. A 3-year-old child can, therefore, enjoy VIP queues with you for the first time, then a second time with their sibling, then a third time with their uncle, and so on. This allows you to have inexpensive tickets when considering the total price.
But there is also a way for everyone to avoid paying for their Disney Premier Access ticket. As a reminder, Disneyland Paris has implemented the Standby Pass. This pass allows you to bypass queues for certain attractions by scheduling a designated time to visit the desired attraction. This standby pass system is in place during high attendance periods at the parks. Disneyland intends to continue and even expand this system to improve wait times in front of attractions.
How to take advantage of the Standby Pass? Simply through the Disneyland Paris application, which is available on the App Store or Google Play. It’s exactly the same process as getting the Disney Premier Access.
How do I get Disney Premier Access?
Two methods are possible. The first and simplest one is to do it through the Disneyland Paris mobile application. As a reminder, this application allows you to register your Disneyland tickets, passes, access the park maps, check the wait times for each attraction, and more. It has become a must-have for a visit to Disneyland Paris.
First method: Using the mobile app.
- Download the Disneyland Paris app from the App Store or Google Play.
- Sign in to your Disneyland account. If you don’t have one, you will need to create it. Also, please note that you must be at least 18 years old to create an account.
- Link your Park tickets or Passes to your Disney account directly from your application.
- Once you are in the park, all you have to do is purchase your Disney Premier Access for the attractions that interest you the most. The payment is done directly within the application.
- All you have to do is present yourself at the entrance of the attraction during the designated time slot. This time slot is quite broad as you have a 30-minute window to present yourself at the attraction.
Second method: Go to a ticket booth
If you wish to pay for your FastPasses in cash or if you do not use the Disneyland Paris app, you can go to City Hall in Disneyland Park or Studio Services in Walt Disney Studios Park.
Regardless of the method you choose to obtain Disney Access Premier, there are a few restrictions to be aware of.
The restrictions of this fast pass of the new Fastpass (DPA One)
- Each pass is only valid on the day of purchase. It is not possible to buy them the day before for the following day or use previous Premier Access passes.
- It is only possible to purchase a maximum of 3 FastPasses per attraction per person per day.
- A maximum of 12 Disney Premier Access reservations is allowed for the same time slot and attraction. Groups of more than 12 people must therefore separate.
- Disney Premier Access is subject to availability.
Points 2 and 3 apply to the same Disneyland account. So, if you have two separate Disneyland accounts, for example, you multiply the limits by 2 (thus, 6 maximum Fastpasses, 24 DPA, etc.).
