    Hello! We are making our first trip to California and visiting Disneyland for one day. Does Moana have a specific spot to meet her? Also, when we went to DWorld, I reserved fastpasses on my app. Is that the same with DLand?

    Greetings Bridget!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting you are making your first trip to sunny California! I'm so glad you will be able to fit in a day at the Happiest Place on Earth while visiting the Golden State.

    See the line where the sky meets the sea? You won't have to travel that far to meet your favorite wayfinder Moana. Currently this princess is meeting Guests in Disneyland Park near Tarzan's Treehouse. You can verify the times and locations of her as well as other Character meet and greet locations on the Disneyland app when you are in the park. I would advise downloading this app before your vacation. You can familiarize yourself with park maps, attraction locations, and dining options before you arrive as well.

    It sounds like you are familiar with FastPass+ at the Walt Disney World Resort. Disneyland Resort's FASTPASS system is similar but also a little bit different. If you like the ease of using your mobile device for making FASTPASS selections, I recommend purchasing Disney MaxPass directly from the Disneyland app when you enter the park. Just select "Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass" on the app, and you can add this feature to your ticket. This allows you to make digital FASTPASS selections and also includes unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass pictures taken that day. It will definitely maximize your day in the parks which is a bare necessity if you only have one day to spend. Unlike the Walt Disney World Resort, you only make one FASTPASS selection at a time instead of choosing up to three. This actually allows us to make so many more FASTPASSES efficiently throughout the day. Also, you won't need to make FASTPASS selections until you arrive at the resort, not in advance like at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope this helps, and have a magical day!
