    W/MaxPass, the FASTPASS feature just saves you from having to walk to the ride to get a Fast Pass, right? Do my husband & I both need it if we only want the unlimited photo feature? Can just 1 of us get it & be the 1 to download images of us?

    Greetings, Kristie, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m always excited to help my fellow Californians plan their next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Disney MaxPass is one of my favorite ways to maximize your time in the theme parks of the Disneyland Resort! There are two main benefits to it – first, you can make digital Disney FASTPASS selections from the convenience of your phone as soon as you step inside Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. If you have a Park Hopper Ticket, you can make a selection for one park while you’re still inside the other! So, you’re correct that MaxPass allows you to grab FASTPASS selections without having to walk up to each individual attraction. 

    The second main benefit of MaxPass is enjoying unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass pictures, which is reason enough to add MaxPass to your ticket! If you’re planning on adding MaxPass to just one ticket in your group in order to receive the PhotoPass benefit, that’s fine, too. Just be sure to have your PhotoPass Code scanned at each photo opportunity, so the images can be added to your account. 

    Also, I recommend taking advantage of special photo opportunities where you see PhotoPass Photographers, such as my favorite spot, in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland Park. PhotoPass Photographers know just how to add a special touch to each and every picture they take. In fact, my fellow Panelist, Tony, and I were treated to a photo shoot through Cars Land with an amazing PhotoPass Photographer a few months back. What a treat to have the Cast Member guide us through his favorite photo backdrops!

    If you’re visiting the Disneyland Resort for more than one day, keep in mind that you have the option to add MaxPass on a daily basis. Adding MaxPass is a simple process – after downloading the Disneyland app, select the “+” at the bottom of the screen, then choose “Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass.” As soon as you enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, you can make your first selection. 

    I hope this helps! Wishing you and your husband many magical moments!

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
