    The first day for our trip we were going to California Adventure are plane doesn’t land til 11am I’m buying our tickets using the Disney app can I use the max pass that day before we get to the park so that we are able to get some of the good rides

    Hey there, Brian!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks so much for your great question. I love how you plan on visiting the parks as soon as you land in California. It sounds like you don't want to waste any time so you can start experiencing the magic of the Disneyland Resort as soon as possible!

    With the Disney MaxPass feature of the Disneyland app, you have the ability to make Disney FASTPASS selections throughout the day right from your mobile device. This feature has truly changed how we visit the parks, letting us experience so many more attractions and entertainment options while spending less time in attraction lines. Plus, Disney MaxPass includes unlimited downloads of all Disney PhotoPass pictures taken when you have this feature. Even if you purchase Disney MaxPass with your tickets before arriving, you will not be able to make your first Disney FASTPASS selection until after you have scanned your ticket in at the front gate. Once you have scanned in, you can make your selections throughout the day from any location, even outside the parks. Don't be discouraged, because I have still been able to make some great Disney FASTPASS selections later in the day for even the most popular attractions. You will want to make your first selection right away and keep track of when the app tells you that you can make your next selection. This efficiency will help you truly maximize your time. 

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. I hope your trip is INCREDIBLE!
