    We are coming to Disneyland from Australia. Is it worth buying a maxipass for the fastpass feature and the photopass that allows us to get the professional photos from around the park + the disc. Or are we doubling up unnecessarily?

    Hi, Joanne! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am so excited that you’ll be visiting the Disneyland Resort from Australia! Your long journey will certainly be worth it once you see Sleeping Beauty Castle and once you’re completely immersed in Radiator Springs as you enter Cars Land.
    Disney MaxPass is an incredible tool that will help you ride many attractions with the least amount of waiting. Since MaxPass allows you to make FASTPASS selections on your mobile device through the Disneyland app, you no longer have to walk to each FASTPASS distribution kiosk. Further, in my experience, many of the FASTPASS return times were immediate or within 15 minutes of the current time so I was zipping around the parks riding attraction after attraction.
    As an extra perk, downloads of all your PhotoPass photos are included on any day that you use Disney MaxPass. This includes all the photos taken at iconic locations around the parks by PhotoPass photographers, character dining photos, and attraction photos. So, if you have purchased Disney MaxPass for each day of your visit, then there isn’t much need to purchase an additional PhotoPass product. While the Disney PhotoPass Collection includes a voucher for a printed character dining photo and a gallery disc of stock images of the Disneyland Resort, you would essentially be purchasing downloads of your photos twice if you buy this product in conjunction with Disney MaxPass.
    So my advice is to absolutely go with Disney MaxPass and enjoy quickly and easily selecting FASTPASSES from your phone and downloading all your images captured during your trip. I hope this helps!
