    We are planning a trip to Disneyland in a few weeks. We are very interested in obtaining fastpasses. How can we go about having the best chance of obtaining fastpasses on the days we go? If we don’t purchase max passes, will we not have access?

    Hi there, Katie,

    I love the feeling of anticipation when we have a visit to the Disneyland Resort coming up soon. One of my pastimes is to browse the Disneyland app, searching for characters and watching wait times. Oh, and perusing the dining menus, of course. Yum!

    Disney FASTPASS is a complimentary feature included with every regular theme park admission. This awesome service allows you to make a reservation to return to one of a select group of attractions to enjoy the experience with minimal wait using the FASTPASS return queue. To get one of these reservations, simply scan your park ticket at the designated kiosk found nearby the attractions that offer FASTPASS. For your convenience, a card is printed as a reminder of when you may return to the attraction to scan your park ticket at the FASTPASS entrance.

    There are fixed numbers of FASTPASSES for each hour of operation of a given attraction. At the beginning of the day, this pool of FASTPASSES is available to all park guests. To have the best chance of obtaining FASTPASSES, the best practice is to arrive early and enjoy the parks during the morning hours. After you obtain a FASTPASS, you must either use that FASTPASS or wait for the amount of time indicated on the reminder card. For regular FASTPASS, that can be as much as 120 minutes. For guests who have purchased Disney MaxPass, that wait time is never more than 90 minutes. So you can see how MaxPass can help maximize opportunities to obtain FASTPASSES. Plus, Disney PhotoPass photo downloads are included for each day you have MaxPass added to your ticket!

    I hope to see ya real soon with any more questions you may have, Katie!
