The digital Fastpass option will allow Shanghai Disneyland visitors using the park's mobile app to book Fastpass return times on available attractions, without having to go to the ride and wait in line to get a paper Fastpass ticket. Guests will then scan their park admission ticket at the ride's entrance to get into the Fastpass return queue at their assigned time.
This brings Shanghai Disneyland's system more in line with the digital Fastpass systems used at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts in the United States. But Shanghai's system is different than both of those resort's, lying somewhere in between them in function.
Unlike Walt Disney World's My Disney Experience app, Shanghai Disneyland guests will not be able to make reservations in advance. They can get their Fastpasses only on the day of their visit, while in the park, as with Disneyland's Maxpass system. But unlike Maxpass, which costs $10 a day per person, Shanghai Disneyland's digital Fastpass system will be free of charge, as with Walt Disney World's system.
And like at Disneyland, but not Disney World, Shanghai visitors will continue to be able to get Fastpasses the old fashioned way, though the paper Fastpass tickets they retrieve will be reminders, as their park tickets will be used for Fastpass queue admission.
Fastpass is available at Shanghai Disneyland on the following attractions:
In addition to the free Fastpass service, Shanghai Disneyland offers a paid Premier Access service, which guarantees you one Fastpass admission to a single attraction, or to all seven, if you buy the set. When it opened last year, Shanghai Disneyland faced a problem with people scalping Fastpasses, which might have prompted Disney to introduce its own paid reservation service.
