    If I put our tickets in an accordion style plastic holder, will they scan them through the plastic at the gate or will I still have to take them all out one at a time as I go into each park and fast pass lines?

    Hi there, Jennifer! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!
    I love that you are contemplating ways to stay organized during your trip! I am always the one managing the tickets for my family so I know exactly how important this task is. From what you described, I don’t think the Cast Members at the gates will be able to scan through that plastic holder. I know some families wear clear, plastic lanyards to hold their tickets that can be scanned through, but the tickets are each in their own, individual lanyard. If you will be using the traditional FASTPASS system, then you will have to remove each ticket in order to insert it into a FASTPASS distribution kiosk. Then you will need to scan your theme park tickets at the attraction to redeem your FASTPASSES.
    My best suggestion is to go paperless! Scan your theme park tickets into your Disneyland app and then simply bring up the tickets in your app to have them scanned at the gates. I did this on my last trip and it was a lot easier than pulling out everyone’s paper ticket! You can also upgrade to the Disney MaxPass option which will allow you to make digital FASTPASS selections on your mobile device from anywhere in the parks. No need to visit a distribution kiosk and pull out your theme park tickets when you use MaxPass. Plus, when you get to the attraction, you will once again use the app to bring up the FASTPASS and scan it at the queue entrance. The only exception to this would be if you are pulling FASTPASSES for Fantasmic! or World of Color which are only available by visiting a kiosk and inserting your park ticket.
    I hope this information was helpful! Have a wonderful day!
