FastPass Disneyland Paris

Planning for a holiday with children can be quite stressful, and trying to plan a Disney holiday even more so.  We have lots of tips on this post, but I have been seeing lots of questions on how the fast passes system works in Disneyland Paris.  So here’s all you need to know about the FastPass Disneyland Paris and how to use them best.  We have visited three times and the FastPass system is great to ensuring that you get to go on the big rides during your stay and not just queue for hours.

How the FastPass Works?

Unlike the Disney Parks in Florida, the FastPass in Paris cannot be booked in advance.  Instead Disneyland Paris use the old systems of collecting the passes from each ride.  So:

  • You insert one Disney Park admission ticket for each rider into the FastPass machine at the entrance to the attraction.
  • You will receive your FastPass ticket with your return time, and you can head off to enjoy all the fun of the Disney Parks elsewhere in the meantime
  • Return to the attraction at the time indicated on your FastPass and enter the ride via the Special FastPass Entrance.

It s important to note that not all the rides have FassPass services and the following are the only rides in both parks.

Few other things to note:

You can only have one FastPass ticket at a time per person and it can only be used with a Park ticket that is valid for the same day. Another ticket can only be obtained once the previous one has been used or 2 hours after the previous one has been issued.  With careful planning you can get another FastPass before using the last one provided 2 hours have elapsed.
In addition to the above, dependent on whether you are staying in a Disney Hotel and the room type also brings FastPass advantages.

  • There are VIP FastPass for those staying in Suites or Castle club guest at Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Hotel New York, Disney’s Newport Bay Club® and Disney’s Sequoia Lodge.  This allows guests unlimited access to the FastPass line and skip the queue during your stay
  • Also, guests staying at the Disneyland® Hotel (Standard and Family room) and at the Disney’s Sequoia Lodge (Golden Forest Club room), who’ll receive one FastPass per day, per person, valid all day except between 1:00pm and 4:00pm.
With careful planning you can get to make the most of your time on the parks. What do you think of the FastPasses?

I am a traveller, mother and blogger. We love to go on adventures (big and small, near and far) and strive to show our children how amazing and beautiful the world is! I caught the travel bug many moons ago and despite having three little adventurers, I still suffer from "itchy" feet. We love the great outdoors and one another. Come and join the fun :)
