    Hello...if you could help me understand the MAX PASS. have read it but still confused...I am travelling with y husband and 3 kids....why do i need to buy one for every member?

    Hi there, Anna!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney MaxPass is a topic I'm very passionate about after utilizing it on so many trips, so I'd love to tell you more about it! First, let me explain a little bit about the Disney FASTPASS system at the Disneyland Resort. All Disneyland Resort tickets give you the ability to make complimentary FASTPASS selections for select attractions. All you need to do is walk to the attraction's specific FASTPASS distribution kiosk, insert your ticket, and you will be handed a return time when you can come back to the attraction to bypass the standby queue. When you head to the attraction at the designated time, you will scan your ticket and enter the FASTPASS queue.

    When you purchase Disney MaxPass, you are able to make your Disney FASTPASS selections for everyone in your party who purchases it, right from the Disneyland app on your mobile device. This means you can be in Disneyland Park waiting for an attraction while making your FASTPASS selections for an attraction in Disney California Adventure Park. It will save you so much time and footsteps! After our first day using Disney MaxPass, I couldn't believe how many attractions we were able to ride in one day. The same procedure of scanning your park ticket at the FASTPASS queue applies for Disney MaxPass. Since the app will also tell you when you can make your next FASTPASS selection, you can keep making them right from your phone throughout the whole day. 

    I do understand that with a larger family that the price of MaxPass can add up quickly. I suggest riding FASTPASS attractions on one or two days to use this service, while picking non-FASTPASS attractions and shows on the days that you do not purchase it.

    I hope this helps!
