    Questions about Disney Max pass....I am an expert on Disneyworld, need help with Disneyland. Do you have to pay for the max pass for each persons ticket in order to book fastpasses? We are a family of 6, but obviously some of our kids do not have phones.

    Hey Howdy Hey, Brenda!

    You've Got a Friend in Me here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, so thanks for bringing your great question. As someone who frequents both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, I think you are going to have such a magical time at Walt Disney's original Magic Kingdom in California.

    While there are many similarities between both locations, you will find that some things such as Disney FASTPASS and Disney MaxPass are quite different from the Walt Disney World Resort. The main difference is that all FASTPASS selections for Guests are made each day, not in advance, even if you are staying on Disneyland Resort property. This gives everyone an equal chance at making FASTPASS selections each morning, which I think is fantastic. You are always welcome to take advantage of the Disney FASTPASS service free of charge if you walk up to the attraction, insert your ticket into a FASTPASS distribution kiosk, and obtain a paper FASTPASS. If you want the added convenience of being able to digitally book FASTPASS return times from your mobile device, you will want to add Disney MaxPass to each ticket when you purchase them or when you arrive via the Disneyland app. You will be able to link your entire family's tickets to one family member's app to manage their FASTPASS selections even if they don't have a phone, so it's not a problem at all! It's so easy to link tickets on the app by scanning each bar code. 

    You won't want to miss exclusive Disneyland Resort experiences like Incredicoaster, Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, Cars Land, and the original Pirates of the Caribbean to name just a few. I also love that everything at the Disneyland Resort is so close in proximity that you can easily park hop.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions!
