    Can I use MaxPass to make FastPass selections while I'm taking a break from the park at my hotel (off disney property)?

    Welcome, Aaron!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question. I love that you have already decided to use the amazing Disney MaxPass service offered at the Disneyland Resort. This has truly changed the way we visit the parks for the better!

    Disney MaxPass can be purchased prior to arrival with your tickets or once you scan through the gates in the morning by adding it on to your Disneyland app account. Before arrival or after you have your tickets, make sure you link your tickets to your Disneyland app to use this feature. Disney MaxPass is activated each day only once you have scanned your ticket at the front gate. If you leave the parks throughout the day, you are still able to make Disney FASTPASS selections on your Disneyland app, wherever you are, as long as you have scanned through the gates in the morning. I have done this on multiple occasions when heading back to our hotel after a morning in the parks. You still will only be able to make one Disney FASTPASS selection at a time with Disney MaxPass, but if you keep track of when you are allowed to make your next selection, you can make SO many throughout the day! I was truly amazed at how many FASTPASS selections we made the first time using Disney MaxPass.

    I recommend familiarizing yourself with the Disneyland app before arrival to maximize your days in the parks. You will find interactive park maps, real-time attraction wait times, Character locations, and you will have the ability to mobile order food and beverages from select Quick Service restaurants in both parks. It's such a time-saver!

    I hope this helps, and I wish you a magical vacation!
