Oriental Land Co., which operates Tokyo Disney Resort, will introduce a new priority pass at its theme parks starting on Wednesday as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.

The 40th Anniversary Priority Pass is a free service to let visitors enjoy some attractions at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea without having to stand in long lines, even during the summer holiday when the parks are expected to be crowded.

After entering the parks, users can make a reservation for an attraction of their choice through Tokyo Disney Resort’s smartphone app. Time slots are decided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Priority pass holders use a special entrance for rides and the wait is usually shorter compared to the line for non-pass holders.

The 14 attractions for which reservations can be made through the app include Space Mountain and Pooh’s Hunny Hunt at Tokyo Disneyland and Raising Spirits at Tokyo DisneySea.

The priority pass replaces the FastPass, which also offered free priority entry but was discontinued by Oriental Land in June.

The company has said the priority pass will be available until further notice.
