    All the disclaimers for Maxpass mention to check fast pass availability prior to buying...how do you do this? And, so would it then be beneficial to check and add Maxx pass upon entering the park that day...how would you go about doing that?

    Hi, Clint!

    Welcome, and thanks for stopping by with this question about Disney MaxPass. I’m glad you plan to take advantage of the ability to make Disney FASTPASS selections on the go from your mobile device! It adds so much convenience to my family’s days in the theme parks. 

    You can actually secure Disney MaxPass for all the days of your visit in advance by adding the option to your tickets when you purchase them. If your theme park tickets have already been purchased without the Disney MaxPass option added, you can still purchase it upon arrival one day at a time. Once you are in Disney California Adventure Park, sign in to the app with your Disney account. Tap “Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass” and select all Guests in your party who will use Disney MaxPass that day. You can then purchase the feature and begin making digital FASTPASS selections, even for attractions in Disney California Adventure Park while you’re in Disneyland Park, and vice versa!

    Disney MaxPass service is available to Guests daily, and I’ve never heard of it selling out or reaching a maximum. However, FASTPASS selections for popular attractions can and do run out, so it’s best to purchase Disney MaxPass and secure a FASTPASS for those as early in the day as possible. For example, you wouldn’t want to purchase it in the evening with a couple popular attractions in mind, only to find out that FASTPASS return times are no longer being distributed for them. You can check availability via the mobile app, in person at the attraction, or by speaking with a Cast Member at the park’s information kiosks.

    I hope this answers your questions, Clint. Please send us any others you can dream of as your visit to the Disneyland Resort draws near! 

    Wishing you magic,
