When Disney Parks around the globe were forced to shut down because of the pandemic, Disney executives decided to take that time to reimagine certain Guest experiences. One of those experiences was the FastPass system, which they decided to mostly eliminate in favor of new, paid-for systems. Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World implemented a new Disney Genie+. Disneyland Paris introduced Premier Access, where Guests paid for each attraction they wanted to get to the front of the line on.
Now another Disney Park has announced that it will also be implementing Premier Access in just under one week. The Tokyo Disney Resort shared on social media that Premier Access would be coming to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
Tokyo Disney Resort will introduce a new paid service “Disney Premier Access” from May 19th (Thursday), which will increase the options for enjoying the day spent in the park systematically and more efficiently.
