    Going to Disneyland first time. I am a regular at Disney World so I know how to do fastpasses. I purchased maxpass with our tickets. When you select a fastpass in the app do you get to select a ride time window or is there only one time available (next)?

    Hey Howdy Hey, Julie!

    You've got a friend in me here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, so thanks for your great question. As someone who also frequently vacations at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, I'd love to tell you some of the differences you will see on your magical Disneyland Resort trip.

    First, I'm so excited you will be utilizing the Disney MaxPass service. You are going to absolutely love the freedom it gives you in the parks as well as allowing you to experience the most attractions with the littlest wait times. The major difference between this feature and the FastPass+ service at the Walt Disney World Resort is that all FASTPASS selections are made the day you arrive. You are unable to book or reserve FASTPASS times prior to entering the park gates and scanning your ticket. Once in the park you can open the Disneyland app (with your linked tickets) and select "Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass" on the home screen. You will then be able to select one FASTPASS return time based on the one one-hour return time available for each attraction. Once selected you will then see the time when you are able to make your next FASTPASS selection on the app. You can then do this throughout the day as long as FASTPASSES are still available for attractions. It's as simple as that! I always recommend setting an alarm for the time you are able to make your next selection so you truly can maximize your day. Don't forget that Disney MaxPass also includes unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass pictures, too!

    Another difference you will notice is that park hopping only requires a few steps! I just love how close Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are to each other so we can easily hop between parks all day long. Remember to keep an eye on the Disneyland app for attraction wait times and Character locations for both parks. You will also appreciate the proximity of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels and the Downtown Disney District as well as all of the fantastic dining and amenities available here.

    I hope this helps, and I can't wait for your trip to Walt Disney's original Magic Kingdom!
