    At Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park - If we are in the park in the morning and obtain a fastpass for a later time in the day, can we head back to our hotel for a break and still use that Fastpass? Or does leaving the park void our fastpass?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Danielle! 

    You’re as welcome as can be to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so happy to have the chance to help plan a magical Disneyland Resort vacation. 

    Making use of the complimentary Disney FASTPASS service will help bring even more magic to your visit to The Happiest Place on Earth! By joining the FASTPASS virtual queue of an attraction, you’ll save time to enjoy many other activities, like dining, shopping, entertainment, and even other attractions. You may even use your time in the FASTPASS virtual queue to enjoy a break back at your hotel. Your FASTPASS return time will remain attached to your park ticket, ready to redeem at the appointed hour when you return. 

    If you purchase the Disney MaxPass add-on to your ticket, you can make Disney FASTPASS selections from the convenience of your mobile device. And with MaxPass, you may be eligible for additional FASTPASS times sooner than with the regular FASTPASS service alone. In some cases, that may mean that you could have FASTPASS return times reserved for more than one attraction at a time. 

    Tony’s Tip: You can begin to use Disney MaxPass to make Disney FASTPASS selections for the day starting any time after you have your theme park ticket scanned in at the park entrance. Even if the park hasn’t officially opened yet and you have entered the park to await park opening to enjoy the various lands, you are already eligible to make your first FASTPASS selection of the day using MaxPass. You may even be able to make FASTPASS selections from the comfort of your hotel during your break. Once your ticket is activated for the day, you may use the Disneyland app any time during the day to make FASTPASS selections, as long as you have MaxPass added to your ticket.

    Another great benefit of Disney MaxPass is the ability to pick up FASTPASS time that other guests may have canceled. Those cancellations can return to the electronic pool of available return times, even if they aren’t accessible from the normal FASTPASS distribution points. Also, should your plans change and you decide to extend your break with some additional time at the pool, you may wish to cancel your own FASTPASS time if you won’t be able to make it back to the park in time. With MaxPass you can continue checking for more available times later in the day wherever you are.

    I hope you have a Fantasmic! time at the Disneyland Resort, Danielle. Please stop by again if you have any more questions.
