    First time to the park for my 70th birthday with my kids and grandchild! We have park hopper and max pass tickets... Do I also need to buy the extra fast pass tickets at the gate ?

    Hiya Ruth!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Happy Birthday from all of us here at the panel!

    There’s no better place to spend your birthday than the Happiest Place on Earth! Make sure you get a birthday button from the entrance turnstiles or guest relations at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. Wear your button proud so that everyone wishes you a happy birthday! The Park Hopper Ticket will allow you to enter both parks, back and forth on the same day at your leisure. The Great thing about the Disneyland Resort is that both parks are within walking distance of each other so it makes park hopping a breeze. 

    I’m so glad you added Disney MaxPass to your Park Tickets. With Disney MaxPass, you’ll be able to make Disney FASTPASS selections right from your mobile device on the Disneyland Mobile App. Be sure to download the app ahead of time so you’re ready to go when you get there. You won’t need to purchase anything else and you’re all set to make Disney FASTPASS selections once you arrive at the parks. Remember, you can make FASTPASS selections for one park while you are inside the other park and vice versa. It’s a great way to put that hopper feature and Disney MaxPass to work for you! Also included with Disney MaxPass is unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads from the pictures you take in the parks and the ride photos as well. Don’t forget to ask the photographers for some Magic Shots! Your trip to the parks may have to end, but the pictures and memories will last a lifetime.

    Well Ruth, I hope you have the best birthday at the Disneyland Resort. It will be such a treat to enjoy the day with your kids and grand kids.

    Remember, always believe in the magic!
