    Hi! Booked on trip in July. Should I buy FP+ before arriving? Not sure there will be enough unplanned time to make this worthwhile, but love having the pics of the whole family at Disney. Thanks!

    Hi Kathleen!

    I’m so glad you will be visiting Disneyland Resort in July! I’m sure you and your family will have a truly magical time!

    The Disney FASTPASS Service is bit different at Disneyland Resort than at Walt Disney World. The Disneyland Resort does not utilize MagicBands or FP+, but uses paper tickets at FASTPASS kiosks located throughout the park, usually at or near the attractions that have this option. 

    To get a FASTPASS for a ride, simply insert your park ticket into the kiosk and a return time ticket will be dispensed for you to enjoy the ride at a later time. This gives you time to visit the attractions with shorter wait times, enjoy a meal, catch a parade or simply walk around the parks instead of waiting in the queue for that attraction.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
