    Do I have to reserve our days for our trip with you before purchasing my tickets? As well how do we get the fast pass?

    Welcome to planDisney, Brenda!

    I’m so glad you found us here while planning your summer getaway to The Happiest Place On Earth! It looks like you’ve got a few questions and I’m happy to help with your planning to make sure you have the best time possible, so let’s hop to it!

    Once you purchase theme park tickets, the Disneyland Resort currently requires that you make a reservation for the day that you plan to visit. I always make sure to view the reservation availability calendar before purchasing admission tickets to make sure that I’m not left out in the cold like Queen Elsa! But don’t worry, Brenda, as when I am writing this, there are lots and lots of days available to visit both theme parks, so you have plenty of time to prepare and have fun!

    As for your question about fastpasses, that system has been replaced by the Disney Genie Service. You can add Disney Genie+ to your theme park tickets when you purchase them for the best deal. If you’ve already purchased your tickets if you hadn’t added Disney Genie+, you’d have to wait until you’re physically scanned into one of the theme parks to add it, and prices change daily. So, to get the best value, it's better to add it at the same time you purchase your tickets.

    I hope this was helpful for you, Brenda. If you think of any other questions about your trip, please follow up!

    You’ve got a friend in me,
