    Hello, I am planning on taking a trip to Disneyland during Christmas week and I wanted to know if MaxPass will still be completely available during that time?

    Greetings, Tierney! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    Disney MaxPass has taken my park touring to a whole new level! It is astonishing how many attractions I can ride in such a short amount of time using Disney MaxPass. Plus it is so easy to use on the Disneyland app. As far as I know, there will not be any restrictions to using MaxPass during the Holidays. In fact, more and more attractions offer MaxPass, like “it’s a small world” and eventually Pirates of the Caribbean. 

    The only thing to keep in mind is that if you are arriving at the parks later in the day, you might want to check FASTPASS availability before purchasing MaxPass for that day (if you aren’t adding it to your tickets ahead of time). During popular seasons, like December, it’s possible that FASTPASSES for certain attractions can be completely distributed for the day within hours of the park opening. And once they are gone, they are gone – even if you have MaxPass.

    You can check FASTPASS availability easily on the Disneyland app. Simply select an attraction that offers FASTPASS and there will be a section that displays the FASTPASS return time currently being distributed. If there is a time listed, you are good to go. If it says that FASTPASS tickets are no longer being distributed, then they are out for the day for that particular attraction. Typically, if you arrive early, you will have no problem obtaining FASTPASSES via Disney MaxPass until at least the mid-afternoon. 

    Finally, don’t forget that downloads of any PhotoPass photos captured on a day that you use Disney MaxPass are included! Have a fantastic time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
