How to Use the FastPass at Tokyo Disneyland


 

FastPass Guide at Tokyo Disneyland

Maximize your visit to Tokyo Disneyland with FastPass tickets. These tickets are designed to give travellers opportunity to queue up at fast lane for popular rides and attractions.

This can help you to bypass the long queue at normal lane for famous rides and attractions at Tokyo Disneyland. Don’t worry, the FastPass tickets are free for every visitor. You can easily to redeem it through the FastPass ticketing machines that are located near each attraction.

Take Note:

Do take note that you can only get one FastPass ticket for every two hours. Hence, use only your FastPass advantage for famous rides with higher crowd level.

Ideally, it’s best to arrive early so that you capitalize on more FastPass tickets for different popular attractions.

For non-thrill seekers, give priority to Pooh’s Hunny Hunt and Monsters, Inc. Rider & Go Seek because these rides easily run out. And for thrill-seekers, then Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain should be your top choices for FastPass tickets.

A Step-by-step Guide to Claim Your FastPass Ticket

Step 1: Verify the FastPass Return Time

FastPass Return Time Board at Tokyo Disneyland
Time board of FastPass ticketing machines

Most FastPass ticketing machines are located near each attraction in the park. From the time board of FastPass ticketing machines, you can see the FastPass return time. This is the time that you should return to the attraction and present your FastPass ticket to a Cast Member for you to line up at fast lane.

My Suggestion:

Only claim the FastPass ticket for rides that have longer waiting time for regular queue, ideally from 50 minutes and above. You can know the waiting time through the time board at the regular queue lane of each attraction.

So, for attractions with less than 30 minutes waiting time, then it’s best to jump into the regular queue. This is because you can only avail of FastPass tickets every 2 hours. Hence, make sure you use them on more popular attractions with longer queues.

Mistake I Learned:

Take into account the return time of your FastPass ticket, especially that you can only claim one after 2 hours. If the return time is very late or not your preferred schedule, then don’t get a FastPass ticket. This is one mistake I had during my visit, where I didn’t check my return time for Pooh’s Hunny Hunt.

When I went there around 10:45 am, I end up with a return time at 21:05 – 22:00. Plus, I had to wait for the next 2 hours to claim another FastPass ticket.

So, if you prefer Pooh’s Hunny Hunt ride, then get your FastPass ticket once you enter the park. Remember to ensure the FastPass return time is acceptable for you before getting your FastPass ticket. You can check the FastPass return time through the time board of FastPass ticketing machines.

Step 2: Collect Your FastPass from Ticketing Machine

Tokyo Disneyland FastPass Ticketing Machine Guide
FastPass ticketing machine

If you’re okay with the return time, then it’s time to maximize your FastPass advantage. Using your Disneyland park ticket, scan your QR Code at the FastPass ticketing machine.

Tokyo Disneyland FastPass Ticket
FastPass tickets

Based on the ticket above, you can see that the return time is 21:05 – 22:00. Accordingly, you need to get back to Pooh’s Hunny Hunt ride within this period. While waiting, you can visit other rides that do not require FastPass tickets or those with shorter queues.

Also, if you claim your FastPass at 10:45 a.m., then your next FastPass will be from 12:45 p.m. onward. All tickets are printed in both English and Japanese texts.

Step 3: Don’t Forget to Come Back to the Ride within the Return Time

At the FastPass lane, simply present your FastPass ticket to a Cast Member and enjoy the ride. The process is the same for all eligible FastPass rides and attractions.

  4. Space Mountain

  6. “it’s a small world”
  7. Haunted Mansion
  8. Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
  9. Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters

All rides from 1 to 6 are very popular; hence their FastPass tickets run out in the morning. So, make them a priority.

*The process to get your FastPass Ticket is the same for all the rides that are eligible for FastPass Entry.

So, from the above picture, you need to return back to Pooh’s Hunny Hunt between 11:15 – 12:15. This is only if you availed of the FastPass ticket to skip the regular queue.

If you win:

What a great luck! For winners, a ticket will be printed featuring the show time and seat number in both English and Japanese texts.

The number of tickets will depend on the number of Disneyland park tickets scanned. For example, if you scan 2 Disneyland park tickets, then 2 tickets will be printed out from the lottery machine.

If you lose:

Better luck next time! Even if you do not win, you still have the chance to watch the popular shows. Go to the first and second shows an hour before the it starts. Most popular shows are already fully occupied during afternoon, especially on crowded days.

So, better go there in the morning. Normally, the first and second showtimes are 10:25 a.m. and 11:55 a.m. Check the exact showtimes of Let’s Party Gras! at Tokyo Disney Resort Website. Aside from that, you can verify it on the Entertainment Schedule Sheet on that day.

  1. Excellent articles Josh!
    My family just took our first trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida and we loved it so much that we want to go back!
    But we also want to visit Japan, learn about the culture and experience some traditional Japanese activities.
    We didn’t know how many things at Disney Tokyo are so different and unique from Disney Orlando! Now we are talking about adding a couple days to our trip just for Disney Tokyo thanks to your posts!
