    This is now two weeks old, but I don't believe it's been mentioned here. Shanghai Disneyland now offers an option to buy fastpasses with money.

    Here's an article from themeparkinsider.com on the matter: http://www.themeparkinsider.com/flume/201703/5499/

    Thoughts?

    Lame. I don't know if Paris or Hong Kong does it, but WDW or TDR don't do paid fast passes. I thought free fast passes was a "Disney" thing!

    Either I'm missing something or the math doesn't work. There are three lesser passes that cost 120/150RMB regular/peak, but buying the "set" costs four times that at 480/600RMB... So they charge four times as much for three passes combined as they do if you purchase the three separately?

    :cautious:

    ETA: Nevermind, I figured it out: The lesser pass is only good for one of the two or three participating rides in each area. So, the set gets you one ride on all seven attractions for the price of four individual rides.

    If it wasn't so pricey it would prob be worth it

    SDL is a unique case. Guests scalp their FPs to other guests. This is an effort to curtail that, not just another revenue stream.

    We are planning on buying the set when we go in October. We are only going to be there for 1 full day (my birthday) and I want to maximize our time.
