    Thanks in advance for help with my question! I will most likely buy 5-day park tickets before arriving in Anaheim thru a travel agent and they don't offer the MaxPass. Can I purchase the 5 days of MaxPass on day 1 or do I have to buy it each day?

    Hello Valerie!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am such a fan of Disney MaxPass and have used it on multiple trips to the Disneyland Resort. This service has increased the number of attractions we can ride and the free time we have at the parks. Now we have more time to experience the delicious dining options, watch the talented entertainment, and make memories with Disney PhotoPass.

    If you do not already have Disney MaxPass on your park ticket, you can add this service daily on the Disneyland app after scanning your ticket at the gate. On longer trips of 4-5 days you may find you may not need to utilize this service every day, and it will be nice to have the option not to purchase it if you choose. On our last longer stay we decided to have a few days using MaxPass and then other days experiencing non-FASTPASS attractions and entertainment. We also made sure to take all of the PhotoPass pictures we wanted on those MaxPass days since it is included with the cost.

    My advice is to start familiarizing yourself with the official Disneyland app to have a general idea of which attractions offer FASTPASS as well as the layouts of the parks. Some of the most popular attractions are Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, Radiator Springs Racers, and Indiana Jones Adventure. For these attractions I highly recommend utilizing Disney MaxPass or riding earlier in the day.

    I hope this was helpful, and please feel free to return if you have any other questions as you plan your vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth.
