    What are the pros and cons of MAXPass versus getting the paper FASTpass at the individual rides?

    Hey howdy hey, Theresa and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. When Mickey creates magic, he really creates magic. The ability to add Disney MaxPass to your theme park tickets makes the flow during the day so much easier.

    The pros far outweigh the con. First, Disney MaxPass allows you to book Disney FASTPASS selections right from the Disneyland app instead of running all over the theme parks to get paper Disney FASTPASS return reminders from the distribution points. Second, with a Park Hopper Ticket, you may schedule Disney FASTPASS selections in both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Third, with Disney MaxPass, the Disneyland app shows you the return times for all available Disney FASTPASS attractions to help you decide which to get. Once you make your selection on your smartphone, the app will alert you of the return time and even tell you when you can make another Disney FASTPASS selection. The time saved from not having to travel to each distribution point gives you additional moments to grab a churro, Dole Whip, or my favorite, Mickey-shaped beignets from the Mint Julep Bar. Lastly, Disney PhotoPass is included with your Disney MaxPass so you can capture every magical moment.

    The only con for Disney MaxPass would be the cost but even that is so minimal per person per day at $15.00 (price subject to change).

    Disney MaxPass is a must for our family so we save time in line and create more magic with Mickey and the gang.

    Disney Dad Tip: Disney MaxPass may be purchased daily. So if you have a specific day of your Disney vacation that you really want to save time then purchase Disney MaxPass.

    Theresa, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
