    Hello! I just purchased MaxPass for our Disneyland trip. With Disney World FastPass, you can select three rides before you go to the park. Can you do that for MaxPass too? Basically, how early can we book our rides using MaxPass? Thank you!

    Hiya, Heather! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It’s always fun to see my fellow Californians here!

    I’m happy to hEAR that you’re familiar with Walt Disney World Resort, my other happy place! That’s correct, at Walt Disney World Resort, you can make up to three FastPass+ selections for each day of your ticket at a single park. However, with Disney MaxPass, you’ll need to wait until you arrive inside Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park before you can start making your digital Disney FASTPASS selections. As soon as you pass through the Main Entrance turnstiles, you can tap on your Disneyland app and make your first FASTPASS selection.

    There are some things you can do ahead of time, though! For starters, you can download the Disneyland app. It’s my favorite tool to use inside the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Use it to check wait times, make dining reservations, find Characters, locate attractions, use MaxPass, and even mobile order food and drinks. Mobile ordering is a game-changer for my on-the-go family of five! It has saved me from many a toddler meltdown, too!

    You can start making dining reservations up to 60 days before your arrival, so I’d recommend making reservations as soon as you can, if you have any table-service restaurants you’d like to try. Some of my favorites are Lamplight Lounge and Wine Country Trattoria (inside Disney California Adventure Park) and Blue Bayou Restaurant, Cafe Orleans, and Carnation Cafe (inside Disneyland Park). 

    The Disneyland app is also a helpful tool for making reservations for both Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers, both located inside the all-new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

    Wishing you magical memories at the Happiest Place on Earth this summer!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
