That’s right: with the launch of an all-new Tokyo Disney Resort app, guests of the theme parks can now book digital FastPasses and use free Wi-Fi starting this summer. Tokyo Disney Resort announced the news this week on their official blog, providing a sneak peek of what the new app will look like.
Currently, Tokyo Disney Resort utilizes the free paper FastPass system for attractions. With this new app, FastPasses will remain free even when booked digitally, just as they are at Walt Disney World Resort. At Disneyland Resort, in contrast, the digital FastPass system (called MaxPass) is an extra fee, while paper FastPasses remain free.
Much like the apps for Disneyland and Walt Disney World, the Tokyo Disney Resort app will provide guests with a digital access to theme park tickets and a view of theme park maps, attractions and wait times, dining locations, entertainment, and of course digital FastPasses. Tokyo Disney Resort announced the app may also be used for booking vacation packages, making dining reservations, and making Disney hotel reservations. It will also provide guests the opportunity to access the show lottery system, the system in which Tokyo Disney Resort guests can enter their names in a lottery to be able to watch shows while in the theme parks.
The Tokyo Disney Resort app will also have a shopping feature so guests can search for and purchase products from the theme parks. Currently, the U.S. theme parks require guests to download a separate shopDisney app for merchandise shopping, so having everything in one place in the Tokyo Disney Resort app sounds like a major perk.
Tokyo Disney Resort is also introducing free Wi-Fi areas within the two theme parks, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, this May.
