    I am very confused about the Disney Photo Pass & Disney Max Pass? I have already bought our tickets for 4 days & want some kind of photo pass. What is the difference? And do I buy it when I get there or can it be bought before hand.

    Hi Cheri!
    How exciting to know you're planning a 4-day visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
    You'll be glad to know Fantasmic! has returned to the Rivers of America as one of the most spectacular Nighttime presentations (and one of my favorite) at the Disneyland Resort!
    FYI- folks who want to secure a preferred viewing area and enjoy a wonderful meal can purchase a Fantasmic! Dining Package.
    As far as your question regarding the difference between the Disney PhotoPass Service and the new MaxPass Service, here's what you should know:
    *The Disney PhotoPass Service is basically an opportunity to have a Disney Photographer take photos of you and your family during your visit to the Disneyland Resort. When you get to a Disney PhotoPass Photographer they will hand you a PhotoPass card which will be scanned each time you get your photo taken by them! You can choose to purchase prints or buy a PhotoPass+ One Day which gives you access to download all your photos of the day.
    *The Disney MaxPass Service is a new feature that guests can purchase as an add-on to their Park ticket. The Disney MaxPass Service lets you to secure a FASTPASS for your favorite attraction directly from the Disneyland Mobile App on your phone! In addition, when you purchase the Disney MaxPass, you automatically get unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads for the day. This means that if you buy the Disney MaxPass, and take pictures around the Parks with a PhotoPass photographer, you get to download those pictures for free.
    I hope this helps.
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
