Earlier this month, Disney announced that Disneyland Paris is doing away with its free FastPass system and, instead, is implementing a new paid system called Premier Access.
We recently reported that the FastPass signs are beginning to be removed from Disneyland Paris attractions, including at Tower of Terror. Now, we are seeing the very first Premier Access sign installed at a different Disneyland Paris ride — Autopia.
DLP Report took to Twitter to share a photo of the very first Premier Access entrance sign installed at Autopia, writing:

This is just the first step towards the new normal of Premier Access, Disneyland Paris’s new paid FastPass system. The only other Disney Park that offers a Premier Access system is Shanghai Disney.
FastPass+ at Walt Disney World Resort and FASTPASS/MaxPass at Disneyland Resort remain suspended as a result of operational changes amid the ongoing pandemic.
More on Premier Access at Disneyland Paris
The new Premier Access system will charge Guests around €8, which is just over $9, per ride at the theme park; however, it seems that rides may vary in pricing depending on popularity. For example, more popular and E-ticket attractions may cost more than those rides that do not typically have a long line or such high demand.
It also looks like the prices for each attraction may change depending on what the time of year is. For example, if you visit Disneyland Paris during the peak seasons, Premier Access may cost more.
The Disneyland Paris website has shared which attractions will be using the Premier Access FastPass system. The rides that will be included are:
- Big Thunder Mountain
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Ratatouille: The Adventure
- Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast
- Star Wars: Hyperspace Mountain
- Star Tours: The Adventure Continues
- Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™
