    does Disneyland in California have fast pass or something else? does one day ticket include any of these? is it a good idea to have the APP while visiting Disneyland

    Hi there, Richard. Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for taking the time to swing by with your questions for us.

    It looks like you’re planning to visit the Happiest Place on Earth in mid-December. I just returned from a trip this past weekend, which marked the start of Holidays at the Disneyland Resort. I’m delighted that you’ll be able to experience the merry celebrations during your visit next month!

    Since April 2021 when Disneyland Resort reopened after its extended closure due to the pandemic, many of the well-loved experiences and services continue to be suspended or modified. I regret to inform you that the FASTPASS service has since retired. A new program, Disney Genie service, will be launching in the near future but there is still no release date just yet. 

    As for the handy-dandy Disneyland mobile app, I’m so glad you asked! The app was sure useful on our trip this past weekend. We were able to check attraction wait times, order food and beverages in advance, check out restaurant menus, as well as pay for our merchandise at select retail locations! If you’re interested in experiencing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance during your visit, you’ll need to access the virtual queue that is available only through the Disneyland mobile app. 

    If you have more trip-planning questions, please don’t hesitate to write us again. We’re all EARs.

    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
