I personally don't like this idea. We are already paying for our admission to the park and now they are wanting us to pay again for something that is actually offered for free!

It seems to me, personal opinion only, that DLP is looking to discourage visitors when it should be trying to encourage people to come.

A trip to DLP for many people could be a once in a lifetime experience and will already cost a lot of money, and yet they seem to be adding additional charges all over the place which is sad  :'(

I had a feeling when they started charging for breakfasts that we were looking at a slippery slope. I hope they think carefully before people stop going altogether.

I'd be interested to learn other users opinions.

Totally agree. It's just money money money with them nowadays. Plus catering for pass holders with select access to certain events, areas etc...
We cannot be charged the same as they do in WDW or Disneyland, DLP is not on that scale or that type of holiday. It has me wondering whether we'll get back due to amount it is now costing.

Personally I would never bother with this thing but I go to DLP enough that this isn't an issue.

I think this is aimed at a very specific type of visitor (one day, busy times) but they're not expecting that many too use it. Reminds me of the now defunct VIP fastpasses you used to be able to buy - they never really affected the ride capacity etc because not enough people would buy them.

I agree with other posters - I find it sad and disappointing. I've seen this sort of thing in Alton towers and universal Osaka and was always quite proud that Disney didn't do it. I think these are fairly popular in those other parks so I'd be surprised if they didn't sell well in dlp. I wouldn't use them because I've been on everything before and trust that I will again without these. Hope you're right though Claire and it doesn't impact queues too much.

this is similar to what has recently been introduced to Disneyland California.

In Disneyland California they have the same Fastpass system as Disneyland Paris, ie the paper Fastpass which you get at the machines beside the rides.

This year they have introduced a paid way to also get Fastpasses. The free paper Fastpasses are still available, this paid way is in addition to the paper ones.

The paid Fastpass facility is called Maxpass. It costs $10 per day per person. It can only be bought once your park ticket is scanned. It is an extra paid service on the Disneyland App on your phone. Just like with the paper Fastpass, you can get as many as you like during the day.

As the free Wifi in Disneyland California is not park wide, you need to use data on your phone, which makes this facility useless for international visitors. I did not pay for Maxpass on my June 2018 visit but I still managed to get whatever Fastpasses I wanted and multiple Fastpasses throughout the day, the same as I have always done.

However from what I am reading on another forum and form my own experiences in Disneyland California a few weeks ago, it seems that American people are paying for it and using it..Americans seem to like the fact that you dont have to run around the park to the Fastpass machines beside the rides. They seem to like that you can just do everything on your phone through the App. They would rather pay $10 a day for the convenience.

With Maxpass you can get a Fastpass for a ride on your phone, You dont have to actually go to the machines. This means that while you are waiting in line for a ride, you can book a Fastpass for another ride. Also if you are in one park you can get a Fastpass for a ride in the other park. For example, if you are in California Adventures having a meal, you can go on your phone and book a Fastpass for Star Tours in the main park. There is also the facility to cancel a Fastpass.

Now that people have a digital version of a Fastpass on their phone, the CM's at the rides do not collect the paper Fastpasses any more. When you return to a ride now, you scan your phone OR you scan your park ticket if you have pulled a paper Fastpass. The paper Fastpasses are now just a receipt, so that you can keep track of your return time and when the next one is available.

In a park already notoriously short on capacity with no new additions since years. This, to me, seems like a douche move. Okay, you don't "have" to buy the FP. But it's really tempting on busy days when even the simplest of rides have a 90 min wait  >:(

@Bad tink pink thanks for that info about California, really helpful - I am not surprised at all that people will pay for convenience. Sounds like the California system is a bit ahead of Paris

I would personally love for DLP to bring in some type of paid-for FastPass service similar to that of California's MaxPass. I have purchased the MaxPass for each day of my stay during my past two visits to Disneyland California and I now swear by it!
 
One thing worth mentioning, the MaxPass in California is more than just your average FastPass. If the ride you booked a FP for goes down, you automatically receive a blanket FP which is available for any FP attraction in that park for use at anytime that day - along with being able to book another FP elsewhere. You can also be in the Disneyland Park (for example) queuing for Pirates of the Caribbean and, whilst in line, book a FP for an attraction (such as Radiator Springs Racers or Soarin') which are deep inside California Adventure Park. Also - the MaxPass comes with "complimentary" PhotoPass for the day booked. So basically, you can get as many attraction/character/park photos as your heart desires - plus the ability to book FastPasses all day long in either park - for just $10. It's an absolute no-brainer for my partner and I.
 
I am desperate for DLP to replicate this in some way. Although, paying Ä15 to ride just one attraction - FP or not - is daylight robbery.

I'm not a fan of Fastpass at all. In fact I don't think I've ever used it.

Sure, I can see the reason for it - especially on busy days - but now adding a charge? No thank you. And what's worse, in this instance, its per attraction.. just wrong on so many levels.

I think MaxPass is a great idea and really reasonably priced.

In comparison the Access One pass is a horrible idea and is a total rip off.

But, DLP is still massively behind the times technology wise - I don't know if it's a French thing or an issue with the management there but they're so backwards compared to other resorts.

Thank goodness we've got some movement on that such as with the restaurant booking going online. If only you could do it in the app!

It's on the Dutch version of the DLP website (amongst others). Just go to the restaurants page and you can reserve a table for some. One thing to be aware of though is it isn't always functional - it's still in testing so they do take it down from time to time.

I presume because they wanted to test it on lower traffic pages before they made the system widely available - can't imagine they get too many people booking on the Dutch site in comparison to the UK!
