    We have paper tickets ( 4 day hopper) for Disneyland which we have printed at home. Are these exchanged for plastic credit card type tickets ? If not, how do we use the printed sheets in fast pass machines .

    Greetings, Julie! 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m happy to hEAR you are planning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Your Disney eTickets are all you will need to gain entrance when you arrive at the theme parks. When you have your eTickets scanned at the park entrance turnstiles, the Cast Member there will give you your regular park tickets. They are printed on sturdy cardstock paper that works great in the Disney FASTPASS distribution machines.

    Alternatively, you may use your mobile device to store your Disney eTickets in the Disneyland app and to redeem them for your regular tickets when you arrive. You will still receive the printed tickets for use with FASTPASS distribution kiosks. You may use either your mobile device or your printed ticket to redeem your FASTPASS selection when you arrive at the attraction’s FASTPASS entrance within the designated hour. Since you are visiting from afar, I do want to note that message, data and roaming rates may apply when using the Disneyland app.

    Another great option to consider is to purchase the Disney MaxPass add-on for your tickets. If your tickets do not already include this service, you may decide to purchase it on a day-by-day basis after you have activated your tickets by entering the parks each day. MaxPass can be used to save time and enjoy more attraction and entertainment experiences. That’s because it lets you make FASTPASS selections without needing to visit the FASTPASS distribution kiosks near the attractions. You simply make your FASTPASS choices wherever you are in the parks using the Disneyland app. MaxPass also allows you to make additional FASTPASS choices with a shorter minimum time between selections. And one of my favorite parts about MaxPass is that Disney PhotoPass downloads are complimentary each day it is added to your tickets! It’s a great way to keep all those Disneyland Resort memories and to share them with friends and family back home.

    I hope you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Julie! Please come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any more questions.
