    We are planning a trip to Disneyland in April. We have always used My Disney Experience when we went to WDW. Is there something similar for Disneyland?

    Hi there Shannon!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm so excited you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort this spring! As a previous guest of the Walt Disney World Resort, you will see some familiar sights, but ultimately this will be a whole new world! As such, there is an entirely separate Disneyland app you should download to your mobile device prior to your trip. Similar to My Disney Experience, this app will have park maps, Character locations, attraction wait times, and the ability to view PhotoPass pictures and make dining reservations.

    Another unique aspect of the Disneyland Resort is Disney MaxPass. This is a daily paid feature on the Disneyland app that allows you to make digital FASTPASS selections as well as download PhotoPass pictures taken each day you purchase the feature. If you are familiar with making FASTPASS selections on My Disney Experience, this will be very similar. The main difference is that you only make these selections once in the park (not before your trip), and you can only make one selection at a time. We have found we are able to ride so many more attractions with MaxPass that it has changed the whole way we visit the parks now! You will definitely want to try it out.

    Depending on when you are visiting in April, you won't want to miss the end of the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival early in the month or Pixar Fest starting April 13, 2018. Either way, you will have a vacation you will never forget!

    Have a magical day!
