    We have previously loved the FastPass, but planning on the new MaxPass this time. How long do we have to wait before getting a second ride? Do we have to have gone on the first ride to be able to get a pass for a second one?

    Hey there, Alison!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'd love to tell you a little bit more about the amazing Disney MaxPass feature. Like you, I also love Disneyland Resort's FASTPASS system, so at first I was skeptical how MaxPass could really improve our vacation. Boy was I surprised! MaxPass has been life-changing when it comes to how we vacation. I still can't believe how many attractions we end up experiencing in a day with very minimal wait. Plus, without having to walk to manually get our FASTPASS return time, we have more time to make memories in the parks. I also love the addition of unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads taken when using MaxPass. This service has really enhanced our visits!

    Once you enter a theme park and purchase Disney MaxPass on the Disneyland app (or if you already have it attached to your tickets), you can start instantly making your first digital Disney FASTPASS. Once you make your first selection, the app will tell you the exact time you can book your next FASTPASS. This amount of time will vary based on when your return time is for your previous attraction, but the longest you will have to wait between selections is 90 minutes. You don't have to ride the first attraction before being able to make your next FASTPASS selection. I suggest setting an alarm when the app tells you that you can make your next selection to really make the most out of this feature. I find that when I'm distracted in the parks, I can sometimes lose track of time when I am able to make my next selection, so this has really helped us.

    If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to assist you. Have a Fantasmic day!
