LONG queues are inevitable for the best Disney rides, but there are a number of passes that allow guests to jump the queue.
From being pregnant to switching with friends and family waiting in-line, there are plenty of ways to beat the wait.
Park visitor Jamie Bidwell found out about a special pregnancy pass for visitors who are expecting, which gives them and three other person priority access to rides and character meetings.
The pass also permits two visitors into the priority areas for parades and illuminations.
On a Facebook group, Jamie shared her tip and pointed other guests in the right direction.

She said: "You can get this at City Hall or your Disney hotel concierge desk. We queued at City Hall but you only need to see the person at the front of the queue to get your wristband, you don't have to go in.
"For evidence I showed them my due date on the Badger App that we use now and that was enough, no need for letters or paperwork."
The Disability Pass, also known as the Das Pass, gives guests with a physical or mental disability the option to jump the queues.
While disabilities aren't specified, some common conditions that might be approved include: ADHD, autism and anxiety.

The pass is for guests who find waiting in line difficult for extended periods of time including conditions that worsen with sun exposure, heat and outdoor elements.
Despite its name, the Das Pass doesn't cover guests with mobility restrictions including wheelchair users and mobility scooters.
Using a rider switch is a cheeky way to queue jump, but you'll need to be visiting one of the theme parks with a friend or family member.
The Walt Disney website explains how it works.
They said: "One adult or supervising Guest (14 years or older) can wait with non-riders while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. Then, they simply switch roles to allow the supervising Guest to experience the attraction without waiting in the regular queue again."
However, it's only available for certain attractions at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, so check with staff before queuing.
If you're a wheelchair user or use a mobility scooter, you do not need a Das Pass.
While most queues are wheelchair friendly – and guests will be expected to wait in the standard line – there are exceptions.
If a queue to ride isn't accessible to wheelchair users, you'll receive a return time to head back to the attraction.
Or you can pay for VIP tours to skip the queues, although they cost more than £500 an hour.
Disney has since replaced their much-loved Fast Passes – which let guests skip the queues – for a new Disney Genie+ service.
Skip the line by purchasing a Lightning Lane Pass for individual rides.They typically cost $10(£8) to $25(£20) plus tax, but this varies depending on the ride.

Try getting to the parks early to beat the lines, or enjoy the rides during the firework displays when guests are wrapped up in the illuminations.
Make a beeline for the rollercoasters furtherest away from entrance when the park opens, as the lines may be shorter.
