While all of the Disney Parks and Resorts offer some truly incredible and magical experiences to Guests, few Parks compare to the beauty and uniqueness of the Tokyo Disney Resort.

With amazing classic attractions like “it’s a small world”, Thunder Mountain, or Space Mountain, Guests are in for a treat when they visit Tokyo Disney. Recently, Disney announced that the Park’s version of Space Mountain would be completely rebuilt in a huge refurbishment/update project and we couldn’t be more excited.

Speaking of attractions, Tokyo Disney also introduced a new way to experience these attractions, with its new Premier Access system which is similar to other attempts from Disney to help combat crowded lines.

To quote the Resort, “Tokyo Disney Resort® announced that Disney Premier Access will become available on the official Tokyo Disney Resort® App on May 19, 2022. This new digital service provides guests with the convenience of reserving certain Park attractions by using the app while at Tokyo Disneyland® and Tokyo DisneySea® Parks. By using this new service, guests will have more flexibility, be able to customize their visit, and get the most out of their Disney day.”

The Disney Resort goes on to detail how the new Disney Premier Access service will enhance a Guest’s Disney Park experience. They said:

With Disney Premier Access at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, guests will have the ability to select their preferred time and make reservations to experience attractions. This service, available for a fee, will provide options for how guests experience the Parks, offering convenience and added flexibility for those who want to personalize their experience and get the most out of their visit.

The cost of Disney Premier Access at the Tokyo Parks is in line with the current average spend on services like Disneyland Paris’ Disney Premier Access and the United States’ Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort’s Disney Genie and Lightning Lane offering. It will be interesting to see if the price to ride either of these attractions fluctuates in a similar fashion depending on the season.
