    How many days in advance can you book fastpass attraction at Disneyland? We will be staying on property.

    Greetings, David!

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to us here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for your INCREDIBLE vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I'm so excited that you are staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. I love staying on property, because the magic doesn't stop when I leave the parks. With fantastic dining options, wonderful theming, friendly Cast Members, and perks like Extra Magic Hours, there are so many benefits to staying at these hotels. Make sure you check with Guest Services when you check in to see what fun events are taking place during your stay. I love the complimentary Get Up & Go Power Walk offered in the mornings exclusively for hotel Guests. This allows you to start your day with a brisk walk through an empty Disney California Adventure Park before it opens. While waking up this early isn't for everyone, it is an unforgettable experience you must try at least once, plus it's great way to stay healthy!

    I'm happy to tell you that making Disney FASTPASS selections at the Disneyland Resort is very simple! All FASTPASSES are made the day you are in the park, and there is no way to make them prior to arrival even if you are staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. This means that every morning every Guest has a fair chance at making the day's available FASTPASS selections. There are two ways to obtain a Disney FASTPASS. For no charge you can walk up to an attraction offering this service, insert your ticket into a FASTPASS distribution kiosk, and obtain a return time when you can enter the FASTPASS queue. On your reminder ticket, it will say what time you are able to make your next selection in this same manner. For the added convenience of making FASTPASS selections right from your mobile device instead of walking to each attraction, I recommend adding Disney MaxPass to your ticket. With this feature you can, for example, make your FASTPASS selection for Radiator Springs Racers while you are waiting for "it's a small world." It is incredibly convenient and lets you truly maximize your time in the parks.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
