    I will be at Disneyland this coming week with my adult daughter and my two grandchildren ages 3 & 9. I am buying 4 Park Hopper 3-Day passes. Should I only buy Max Passes for my adult daughter and myself? Why would I need them for kids?

    Hooray, Victoria! What a wonderful time you and your family will have vacationing at the Disneyland Resort. It's such an exciting time with Get Your Ears On – A Mickey and Minnie Celebration, including Mickey's Mix Magic, going on now at Disneyland Park. And the recent return of World of Color means that you'll be able to experience tremendous nighttime spectaculars in both parks of the Disneyland Resort.

    Disney FASTPASS, a complimentary service included with each park ticket, allows the members of your party to experience select attractions at the Disneyland Resort with less wait time. When you purchase Disney MaxPass, generally you will be able to make more FASTPASS reservations and make them from the convenience of your mobile device. Whether or not that will be a service that will be beneficial for your grandchildren depends on the attractions they will want to enjoy. My nine-year-old daughter loves experiencing attractions such as Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and Incredicoaster. Having MaxPass added to our park tickets helps us all experience those attractions together more conveniently. There are also a number of popular FASTPASS attractions that don't have height restrictions. If your three-year-old grandchild will want to experience these attractions, including MaxPass on their ticket may be worthwhile as well. It is also possible to mix use of FASTPASS kiosks and MaxPass. Though, when using kiosks, it is often important to use them for all of your family because, occasionally, times available for MaxPass don't match with the times available at the kiosks.

    Have a magical time with your family, Victoria!
