    Hi, wondering if the regular fastpass options are still at specific rides, or does a person have to use Disney maxpass and app now for a fee x 5 people in our family?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Andrea!

    At the Disneyland Resort there are two ways to obtain FASTPASSES that will allow you to skip most of the queue at select attractions. The traditional Disney FASTPASS Service is still available and included with your theme park admission. You will need to visit a FASTPASS distribution kiosk for each attraction you want to ride that offers FASTPASS. You will insert your theme park ticket and a FASTPASS reminder ticket will be distributed. When it’s time to ride, scan your theme park ticket at the touchpoints to enter the queue. 

    If you want to save yourself oodles of time and energy, you can choose to upgrade to the Disney MaxPass option for an additional fee per ticket, per day. With MaxPass, you can make all your FASTPASS selections on your mobile device from anywhere in the parks. You can then either scan your ticket or the FASTPASS in the Disneyland app to gain entrance into the FASTPASS queue. It is astonishing how much time MaxPass can save you while you are at the parks. So if it is particularly busy one day during your trip, you might want to try it out for the day to see if you find the benefits outweigh the costs. Plus, keep in mind that downloads of all your PhotoPass photos captured on any day that you use Disney MaxPass are included.

    I hope this helps clarify things for you. Please don’t hesitate to stop by again if you have any other questions!
