Disneyland Paris is set to lauch a new digital “Standy Pass” to assist with social distancing. As part of the new social distancing efforts, the new Disneyland Paris Standby Pass will hopefully alleviate crowdinng at popular attractions within Disneyland Paris and the Walt Disney Studio Park.
To minimise the time you spend in the queue during certain periods of the day and to ensure safe physical distancing, you will need to reserve a Standby Pass to enjoy some of our most popular attractions. It’s easy, it’s free and it helps you enjoy more time exploring the Disney® Parks!https://www.disneylandparis.com/en-gb/guest-services/standby-pass/
Update 17th October 2020
Disneyland Paris has paused its Standby Pass. Due to some glitches with the App, Disneyland Paris have announced “In order to improve the experience of our Guests, the Standby Pass service is temporarily suspended.”
Update 27th October 2020
Disneyland Paris has resumed its Standby Pass. After resolving some glitches Disney have announced that that the pass will be re-introduced.
However, with the closeure of the park once again, we will have to wait and see if this returns when the park plans to re-open in December 2020, and then again in February 2021.
What is the new Standby Pass?
From October 6, 2020, the new Disneyland Paris Standby Pass will be introduced to help mimimise the amount of time guests spend in queue lines. Please note, it is beig advertised that is will only be required at “certian periods of the day”. We assume this relates to peak times and dates.
The new pass will be available on the Official Disneyland Paris App, and you will need to make a time slot booking if you want to ride the attraction. This pass appears to be initially set for attractions within the Studios, Crush’s Coaster and Ratatouille. However, this will be rolled out to multiple rides and attractions.
With FastPass tickets currently on hold across all Disney Parks, the new Standby Pass System seems to hint at a digital return. Similar to a fastpass, the new pass allows guests to book time slots to come back and ride ann attraction. This also allows guests to plan their time within the park.
Do I need a Disneyland Paris Standby Pass?
As this is set for certian periods of the day, the best way to check if you need a Standby Pss is using the Disneyland Paris Mobile App. Disney have also stated they will be placig signs at the attraction entrances to notify guests if a pass is required. If a pass is not required, you can simply join the queue as normal
