    We have a paid vacation at Paradise Pier, scheduled to arrive on October 2, 2019. We do not pick up our tickets until our check in. Is there any way to add Flex Pass now before we walk into the park? Is there a benefit to purchase ahead?

    Hello, Berta!

    Your Disneyland Resort Vacation Package is a great way to bundle the magic together. Currently, the only way to add Disney MaxPass to your Disneyland Resort theme park tickets before you arrive at the parks is to include it for the length of your tickets at the time of purchase. If your tickets do not have MaxPass included, you may purchase MaxPass one day at a time after using your tickets to enter one of the theme parks each day. The advantages of purchasing MaxPass with your tickets beforehand include locking in the price of the MaxPass add-on and the convenience of not having to purchase it each day. Otherwise, the process is quick and easy once you enter a theme park and you’ll have the option to decide each day whether or not you’d like to purchase MaxPass.

    There are some steps you can take to make getting Disney MaxPass added to your tickets even easier. First, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app to your mobile device and adding your credit card payment information to your account before you even travel to the Disneyland Resort. Once you receive your tickets at check-in you will be able to link them into the Disneyland app. You may even connect to the WiFi Internet connection right there at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel.

    One of my favorite benefits of staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel is Extra Magic Hour early admission. Extra Magic Hour gives eligible guests the opportunity to enter one or the other of the theme parks up to one hour before the regular park opening to enjoy access to select attractions. You may take advantage of this great perk even on the days you check in and check out if your travel arrangements allow for it. Even if your hotel room isn’t available yet, you may check in early and head straight to the parks to take advantage of your hotel guest benefits each day of your stay.

    I hope you have a magical stay at the Disneyland Resort, Berta!
