    When can we add fast passes to our Disneyland tickets? We are not staying at a Disney hotel. Thanks!

    Hi there, Kathleen! I really love helping my Colorado neighbors plan vacations to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Unlike Walt Disney World Resort where you can make FastPass+ selections before you arrive, at the Disneyland Resort, you obtain paper FASTPASS tickets once you are in the parks. You will scan your valid theme park ticket at a FASTPASS kiosk to receive a FASTPASS for a particular attraction. On that ticket will be your FASTPASS return time window as well as a time when you can obtain your next FASTPASS in the park. You can use the FASTPASS service whether you are staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel or not.

    My best tip is to use the Disneyland app to see attraction wait times and FASTPASS return times before you venture over to a particular attraction. This will help you plan your day and tour the parks efficiently.

    I hope you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort!
