    I’m getting ready to purchase my Disneyland tickets and was wondering if it’s better to include the Max Pass now or to buy the MaxPass each day that I’m there?

    Hi Melissa!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited for you to experience the ease and convenience of using Disney MaxPass on your upcoming visit!

    You are certainly welcome to wait until you arrive each day to add Disney MaxPass to your ticket. You'll scan entry from the Disneyland Mobile App and as soon as you enter you'll receive a pop up to add Disney MaxPass to your ticket. I would recommend pre-loading a credit card into your account to expedite the process so as soon as you arrive you can hit the ground running! If you plan on taking any Disney PhotoPass images though, they'll only be included for the days you've purchased MaxPass. I would wait to add if your budget doesn't allow for it when you purchase tickets or if you aren't certain that you'll utilize Disney MaxPass every day. 

    The potential risk with waiting is that all pricing is subject to change. While I don't foresee them changing the price before your arrival, there is always a small chance, but if you lock it in prior you'll pay today's current price no matter what. This will also allow you to begin planning the moment you enter, rather than going through the process for checking out and adding it via the Disneyland Mobile App. If you are able to, I would certainly recommend including with your initial ticket purchase.  

    I hope this helps in planning your upcoming trip at the spookiest time of year! Come back if we can help in any other way.
