    Hello Panel - if you buy a discounted park ticket, (from another non-disney site) do you still get basic fastpass with it? when you buy tickets from disney, you get the physical ticket which you insert into the fastpass kiosk. wondering how this would work

    Hi Geoffrey!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney FASTPASS is such a convenient service and I'm delighted to tell you regardless of where you purchase your ticket you can certainly use this benefit!

    Once upon a time at Disneyland Resort you are correct that paper tickets were used to achieve a FASTPASS reservation. Now with the Disneyland Mobile App, Guests can use their smart phones to scan their tickets to receive return times for their FASTPASS reservations. It may depend on where you purchase your ticket from. Some will provide you a voucher that you'll need to convert to a ticket at a Disneyland Resort ticket booth. Others will usually email you a barcode that can be used directly. If you receive this barcode, you'll be able to scan it directly into the Disneyland Mobile App. Not everyone in your party needs to have the mobile app, if just one of you does, you can scan multiple tickets from your party into the app. When you approach a FASTPASS distribution point you'll be able to scan a barcode from your phone directly and it'll save your FASTPASS within the Disneyland Mobile App.

    You may also want to consider investing in Disney MaxPass which allows you to make your reservations directly from the app without having to locate the distribution points. In addition to this convenience you also receive all of your Disney PhotoPass photos! Once you scan your ticket and enter either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, you should have the option within the app to upgrade your ticket to include Disney MaxPass.

    Please come back and let us know if you have any other questions before your upcoming visit to The Happiest Place on Earth!
