Disneyland Paris is the most visited theme park in the world, which is why the park always tries to ensure proper crowd management to avoid overcrowding, or mishaps.
The theme park launched Standby Pass in 2020 to optimize the time spent by visitors in the queue for both Disneyland Park and the Walt Disney Studios.
During the pandemic, this digital tool proved to be a great way to ensure physical distancing at the park.
This article shares everything you should know about Disneyland Standby Pass before you plan to visit the theme park.

What is a Disneyland Paris Standby Pass?
The Disneyland Paris standby Pass is a pass that helps you enjoy the park to the fullest without waiting for hours in long queues before the rides.
During the peak season, the theme park experiences a huge rush, delaying entry to rides and attractions and leaving visitors sad and disappointed!
For big thrill rides, the wait times at Disneyland Paris are really long and you don’t just lose time but also end up wasting your energy.
Keeping that in mind, Disneyland Paris came up with Standby Pass, which lets visitors reserve their spot without having to stand in queues.
The Standby Pass is only for Disneyland Paris most popular rides, where visitors’ queues can be very long, especially during peak times.
When Standby Pass becomes active, the regular queue is closed, and visitors are given a standby time later that day.
Guests can carry on exploring the other activities, and come back at the time slot given to them to try the ride.
Disneyland’s Fast Pass is yet another way to avoid wasting your time in the long queues.
