Fast Passes, or tickets that let you skip ride lines at Disney theme parks, have historically been free to parkgoers.

Starting this summer, however, Disneyland Paris will retire its complimentary Fast Pass program and start charging those who wish to have quicker access to attractions. The vacation spot located in Chessy, France, announced on Tuesday that it will soon launch the Disney Premier Access program.

According to the theme park, the new service will help parkgoers “enjoy the ability to skip the regular queue line” for thrill rides, classic attractions, and more.

A new free service called Standby Pass, which virtually holds your spot in ride lines while you walk around the theme park, is also being introduced.

The Disneyland Paris website states that visitors can use the Premier Access program via an app on their phones, or by visiting locations within the park. They’ll have to “book an assigned time slot” for the attraction they wish to visit, and then pay between approximately $9 (8€) and $18 (15€) per person, per ride.

Prices will change depending on “the attraction and day of use,” according to the website.

WDW News Today reported that the initial attractions featured in the Premier Access program will include Big Thunder Mountain, Hyperspace Mountain, Peter Pan’s Flight, Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast, Star Tours, Autopia, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy.

“As we continue to assess many aspects of our business and make changes where they are needed for both the current environment and the future of our resort, the addition of Standby Pass and Disney Premier Access will provide alternative services for our guests and the previous FASTPASS service at Disneyland Paris will not be returning,” the website states.

Representatives for Disneyland Paris did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
