Out with the old and in with the new — Free FastPasses are a thing of the past at Disneyland Paris as Premier Access, the new paid FastPass system, has officially launched inside the theme parks.
In case you weren’t aware, Disneyland Paris announced in July that it would be retiring its free FastPass system and, instead, implementing a new paid system called Premier Access — and today, that system is now in use.
DLP Report even shared photos of new signage that was recently installed to remind Guests of the new system:

This new system is charging Guests anywhere from €8-€15, which is around $9-$18, per ride at the theme park. The pricing varies 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. Here is a list of the rides that are included:
- 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™
Currently, the Disneyland Paris website states:
