    I am so excited to hear about this Max Passes! My question is, how far in advance should you purchase tickets so you can reserve fast passes using the app? Is it only a "day of" thing? Thanks for the help! Tori

    Hi Tori!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited you are eager to experience the new Disney MaxPass service! I have been using it since last summer, and now I cannot live without it. As the name implies it really does maximize your days at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Being able to make digital FASTPASS selections from your mobile device not only is convenient but with the time you save not waiting in attraction lines, you can experience more magic of the Disneyland Resort. Now I find we have more time for Disney PhotoPass pictures, Character greetings, and more time to soak in the atmosphere and entertainment at both parks. 

    You can purchase Disney MaxPass in one of two ways. First you can choose to add this daily feature to your park tickets when you purchase them online. If you already have your tickets, that's not a problem at all. Download the official Disneyland app, link your part ticket to the app, and after your scan into the park you can "Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass" right from the app.

    Unlike FastPass+ at the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland MaxPass feature does not involve making any FASTPASS selections prior to entering the parks. You will be able to make your first selection after you have had your ticket scanned each morning when you enter. Also unique to MaxPass is included Disney PhotoPass downloads each day it's purchased! We love that we can capture more magical memories with this service.

    I am so eager for your trip, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
