    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.

    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.

    On crowded days they will sell out and SDL routinely opens the gates 20-30 minutes before posting opening times, so get there early.

    Possibly. I saw the offering posted at the various Fastpass distribution locations throughout the park. Didn't see it anywhere else.

    Tried to get the set for 7 attractions today, but it wasn't available (or sold out). You could only buy one fastpass for seven dwarfs. The park opens at 7 am, so you gotta be early it seems to have a chance at this premier access thing...

    By the way, the just updated Shanghai Disneyland app for iOS lets you purchase the Premier Access fastpasses directly from the app, either individually or the set. Tempting, but way too expensive.
