Standby Passes Are Back in Disneyland Paris — Here’s How It Works

Since Disneyland Paris reopened in July, the park has initiated a bunch of new health and safety measures, including sanitation stations, mask mandates, and quarantine requirements. The way the park’s queues operate also changed.

Disneyland Paris implemented a virtual Standby Pass system, which is a virtual queue quite similar to Shanghai Disneyland’s Standby Pass system and not unlike Walt Disney World or Disneyland’s FastPass systems.

The process, which is meant to minimize wait times for guests and alleviate crowding in queues was temporarily suspended after the system experienced some glitches.

But, the glitch sitch seems to have sorted itself out, as the Standby Pass system is back! How does it work? First of all, it’s only active during busier periods of the day. If the parks aren’t that busy, you just queue up as per usual! But if crowds get a bit heavier, you will need to reserve a Standby Pass to be able to join the queue for some of the parks’ most popular attractions. You simply use DLP’s app, select the ride you want to join the queue for, and you’ll be given a 30-minute window to return during.

So far, we haven’t seen anything like a Standby Pass at Walt Disney World here stateside, and the parks’ FastPass system is currently unavailable. But as Disney parks around the world adopt this new system, we’ll let you know if it comes to the States!
