New pass means visitors can reserve a time to queue so they can enjoy other activities rather than wait for long periods thus avoiding large gatherings in the post-pandemic period.

Shanghai Disney Resort has launched a standby pass to replace its fast pass, allowing visitors to reserve queuing times for popular attractions.

Visitors can select a time window for a standby pass from the resort’s app. Instead of waiting in a queue, they are free to enjoy other activities until their time comes around, when they can enter the attraction at a designated entrance.

The pass is available from 11am to 4pm for Roaring Rapids, Tron Lightcycle Power Run, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Challenge Trails at Camp Discovery as well as the Disney Color-Fest which will run through Friday at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre.

People with a standby pass may need only wait for up to 45 minutes to experience Roaring Rapids, one of the most popular attractions, compared with the usual 90 minutes. 

The pass is subject to availability but not required on days when attendance is low.
