    We bought a one day pass for Disney California and the app will not let us pick the fast passes. How do we select a day that we are going to be attending to allow us to book our fast passes?

    Greetings, Rachel, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited for your upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort… it’s going to be here before you know it!

    It sounds like you already downloaded the Disneyland app, so you’re on the right track! Unlike the Walt Disney World Resort, here at the Disneyland Resort, Disney FASTPASS Service selections can only be made on the day of your visit, after you’ve entered the Main Entrance turnstiles. As soon as your ticket has been scanned and you’ve entered the parks, it’s game on, and you can begin making your FASTPASS selections. If you have Disney MaxPass added to your ticket, you can begin making selections directly from your phone or mobile device. Or, if you don’t have it added already, you can still choose to add it to your ticket upon arrival inside the park, by using the Disneyland app. I highly recommend adding MaxPass to your ticket, since it’s a big time-saver, plus, it also includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads for the day!

    When using your mobile device, you’ll want to link your tickets to your Disney account. This can be done ahead of your arrival, too. This way, you can make FASTPASS selections for your family or group at the same time. After making a selection, once it’s time to show up, head to the FASTPASS entrance and hold your phone up to the scanner. Once the light turns green, you’re in! And, if you choose to cancel or change your selection, simply head to the “My Plans” screen.

    If you choose not to add Disney MaxPass to your ticket, you can still make FASTPASS selections by using FASTPASS Distribution points near the entrance of select attractions and entertainment at both parks. Simply insert your valid theme-park admission ticket or Annual Passport (AP) into the FASTPASS machine, then, it will create a FASTPASS reminder with your arrival window. When it’s time to redeem it, scan the same ticket or AP used to make that FASTPASS selection. Here’s a helpful list of which attractions offer the FASTPASS feature. Also, check out the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day... you can start mapping out your plan now!

    Wishing you a magical vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth… see ya’ real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
