As Walt Disney World Resort prepares to reopen in the U.S. with virtual queues for the theme park attractions, Disney has begun to roll out other virtual queue systems at Disney Parks around the world, particularly Shanghai Disneyland.
Today, Shanghai Disneyland began implementing the Disney Standby Pass, which allows guests to join a virtual queue online using the Shanghai Disneyland app. Take a look at some screenshots below:
The Disney Standby Pass allows guests to make an online reservation for specific attractions at Shanghai Disneyland park. It allows guests to get access to the attraction during a specific time frame, during which they can enter the queue. It is a lot like the Boarding Groups system in place for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.
Currently, the Disney Standby Pass is only running on a trial basis at Shanghai Disneyland, but we will be sure to update Inside the Magic when more information becomes available.
You can read all about the Disney Standby Pass in the official description below, courtesy of Shanghai Disney Resort’s official website:

What is a Disney Standby Pass?
A Disney Standby Pass is an online reservation tool launched by Shanghai Disney Resort to help guests better plan their queuing schedule for a more relaxed park experience. For attractions where the Disney Standby Pass is applicable, the corresponding attractions are only open to guests who hold either a Disney Standby Pass or Disney Premier Access for the corresponding time period. You can pick up a Disney Standby Pass — available on the Shanghai Disney Resort Official App for no extra charge and subject to availability, so you can wait in line for the attraction within your selected time frame.
Disney Standby Pass Attractions Include (During the Trial Operation Period):
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh – Fantasyland
Disney Standby Pass attractions are subject to change and are only available to guests with valid park admission tickets.
To check Disney Standby Pass and Disney Fastpass“>Fastpass availability, please refer to the Shanghai Disney Resort Official App. Guests may purchase Disney Premier Access for any attraction while also holding a Disney Standby Pass or Disney Fastpass.
Disney Standby Passes will be released in the App on an hourly basis, based on that day’s official park operating hours. Each Disney Standby Pass corresponds to a 60-minute interval for the guest to arrive at the Disney Standby Pass entrance. The quota for each day is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The final release of Disney Standby Passes is approximately two hours before the park’s announced closing time.
How It Works:
To make a selection on your mobile device:
Step 1 – Download the Shanghai Disney Resort Official App before you arrive at the park and create your own account with your mobile phone number or email address.
Step 2 – After entering the park, open the Shanghai Disney Resort Official App, sign in and select “Get Standby Pass”, and scan the QR code on your park ticket.
Step 3 – Create a party in the App by linking your group member’s park tickets so you can enjoy the attractions together using the same Disney Standby Pass return time. Ensure all members of your party have entered the park.
Step 4 – Select the attraction you want to get a Disney Standby Pass for.
Step 5 – Confirm the selection for your Disney Standby Pass.
Step 6 – To redeem, go to the Disney Standby Pass return entrance at the attraction at the designated return time, and then show your QR code, found in “My Plan” on the App or the QR code on your park ticket.
