    How can I setup fastpasses when i bought a single day ticket

    Greetings, Annemarie, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip to Disneyland Resort will be here before you know it, and I couldn’t be more excited for you! It sounds like you’ve already purchased your 1-Day Ticket, so you’re one step ahead of the game. Now, here’s where planning a visit to Disneyland Resort in California is different than planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida – for Disneyland Resort, you’ll start making your Disney FASTPASS selections once you’ve entered the theme parks on the day of your visit, instead of making them ahead of time, as you would at Walt Disney World Resort with FastPass+

    There are two ways to utilize FASTPASS at the Disneyland Resort. First, you can add Disney MaxPass to your ticket, which allows you to make digital FASTPASS selections from the convenience of your mobile device, using the Disneyland app. MaxPass allows you to start making FASTPASS selections as soon as you pass through the Main Entrance turnstiles at Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. This option is especially handy if you’re park-hopping between both theme parks, since you can make a FASTPASS selection for an attraction inside Disneyland Park when you’re in Disney California Adventure Park, and vice versa! Another perk of MaxPass is that it includes unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos daily, which is a great way to preserve all your magical moments! If you choose to add MaxPass, you can purchase it on the Disneyland app on a daily basis, as soon as you enter either theme park.

    The second way to utilize the FASTPASS system is through in-park distribution points near the entrances of select attractions and entertainment at both parks. This option can be done without adding MaxPass, for no additional cost. You would simply enter your valid theme-park ticket into the FASTPASS machine, and it would generate a reminder with your arrival window on it. 

    The Disneyland app can also be used to make dining reservations, check wait times, find Characters, and even mobile order food and drinks.

    I hope this helps as you prepare for your upcoming visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Here's the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day so you can start mapping out the magic!

    See ya’ real soon!
