    Is the disney max pass worth purchasing?

    Hi there, Carla! 

    I absolutely love using the Disney MaxPass service and find it a worthwhile purchase for my family. I appreciate the extra value that it adds to our family vacations at the Disneyland Resort. 

    The complimentary Disney FASTPASS service helps add great value to our vacation. MaxPass helps maximize FASTPASS value in two ways. First, being able to make FASTPASS selections in the Disneyland app instead of needing to visit the FASTPASS distribution point at each attraction that features FASTPASS service saves me steps and time. Second, Disney MaxPass features a reduced minimum wait for subsequent FASTPASS selections. With complimentary FASTPASS, the minimum wait time to become eligible for picking a new FASTPASS may be as much as 120 minutes. With MaxPass, that minimum wait time is never more than 90 minutes. That means that our family can enjoy even more of our favorite attractions with less overall waiting. 

    Disney MaxPass also helps add value to our family vacations even after the vacation has ended. With complimentary downloads of our Disney PhotoPass photos, MaxPass helps us save our most precious Disneyland Resort vacation memories forever. From meetings with favorite Disney Characters, to ride photos from select attractions, to family photos throughout the parks, those PhotoPass memories may be the most valuable souvenirs we take home.

    Whether or not Disney MaxPass is worthwhile may be different for you than for my family. Fortunately, you don’t have to commit to it for your entire visit to the Disneyland Resort. If you purchase tickets without MaxPass included, you can choose to try out MaxPass one day at a time instead. After you use your theme park tickets to enter a park, simply tap “Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass” from within the Disneyland app to start the process of purchasing MaxPass for a single day only. You may even choose to add MaxPass to just a single ticket if you wish to focus on taking advantage of PhotoPass services that day. You can always opt to use the complimentary FASTPASS distribution points if not everyone in your party has MaxPass added to their tickets.

    I hope you have a magical vacation at the Disneyland Resort, Carla. Please come by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again if you have any more questions we can answer.
