    I want to purchase all the tickets for 6 of us in my party. How do the others access their tickets and MaxPasses if I purchase them? Should I wait to buy the MaxPass until we get there? We are going May 10.

    Hiya, Carol!

    When purchasing Disneyland Resort theme park tickets online or in the Disneyland app, you are usually purchasing Disney eTickets. You can print out the codes for the eTickets or display them on the app. When you present the eTicket codes at the main entrance turnstiles, they will be redeemed for physical tickets that will be printed out for you right there at the turnstile. You may then choose to scan your printed tickets into the Disneyland app on the mobile devices of other members of your party.

    Either the printed tickets or the ticket codes displayed on the app may be used for park re-entry and to redeem Disney FASTPASSES at attractions. If Disney MaxPass is included with or added to a ticket, anyone with that ticket scanned into their Disney account on the app will be able to view and manage FASTPASSES associated with that ticket.

    Disney MaxPass may be included with a ticket at the time of purchase for the same number of days of the ticket itself. Or you may choose to wait until after you have entered either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park with your ticket to then purchase Disney MaxPass as a one-day add-on. If I already know that we plan on using Disney MaxPass each day we visit the parks, I find it much simpler to include MaxPass at the time of the ticket purchase. Otherwise, it's OK to wait until each day we visit the parks to decide whether or not we plan on purchasing MaxPass that day.

    If you plan on purchasing Disney MaxPass on a day-by-day basis, I recommend you add your payment method to your profile in the Disneyland app beforehand. It makes it a faster and simpler experience to purchase MaxPass after you have entered the park. Plus, with a payment method added to your account, you can easily take advantage of mobile food and beverage order service. That's a great way to save even more time while visiting the parks!

    Have a magical time, Carol!
