    Would you recommend purchasing disney maxpass for my 3 yr old toddler who is on the small side and won't be able to ride some of the big rides? Also, if we get to the front of the line can an adult wait with her until the other adults finish a ride?

    Hi, Nicole!

    Thanks for visiting with your questions. Disney MaxPass is so helpful because it enables you to conveniently make Disney FASTPASS selections from your mobile device using the Disneyland app. You’ll also get unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads for each day you purchase Disney MaxPass--a great way to document your most magical moments! 

    I suggest that you check out the complete online list of attractions that offer Disney FASTPASS service. While most are thrill rides, there are a handful of attractions (such as Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Haunted Mansion in Disneyland Park and Toy Story Midway Mania! in Disney California Adventure Park) that are suitable for children of any height. If you will want your daughter to experience these with your group without having to obtain a separate traditional FASTPASS for her by visiting a distribution kiosk, then you may want to include her in your Disney MaxPass purchases, even if only for one day. 

    Take advantage of the Rider Switch program, which allows Guests with young children to take turns experiencing attractions. One group of you can ride while another adult or group waits with your daughter. You’ll then "swap" so the second group can enjoy the attraction without waiting in line all over again! Your daughter won’t be allowed to enter the queue if she doesn’t meet the height requirement for an attraction, even if she isn’t riding it with you, so be aware that your group will need to split up briefly to experience the attraction in shifts. I hope this helps you plan, Nicole. Please stop by with more questions as your pixie-dusted planning continues! 

    Wishing you magic,
