    It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to Disneyland and I’ve heard there have been some changes to the Fastpass system. What should I do to schedule Fastpasses for my upcoming trip?

    Hi, Sarah!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for you to enjoy the magic of a Disneyland Resort vacation again! You will be so impressed with all of the new and INCREDIBLE experiences that have popped up over the last few years like Pixar Pier, Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, and the exciting features of the Disneyland app to name a few of them.

    When it comes to using Disney FASTPASS, there have been some exciting enhancements, but in many ways the system is very similar to what you experienced before. You still will make your FASTPASS selections one at a time throughout the day once you enter the park and will not need to reserve any of these before arriving. If you want to make use of the complimentary FASTPASS system, just head to the attraction, scan your ticket, receive a FASTPASS reminder slip, and return back at your assigned time. Instead of scanning your paper FASTPASS slip at your allotted time, you will just scan your park ticket (paper or electronic). Your paper FASTPASS reminder will also let you know when you can make your next selection.

    For a convenient way to make FASTPASS selections digitally via the Disneyland app, you will want to add Disney MaxPass to your account. I have been in line for Haunted Mansion while grabbing a FASTPASS for Radiator Springs Racers on the app. How cool is that? Think of all the footsteps you will save and the extra time you will have to explore. MaxPass truly maximizes your day by letting you experience as many attractions as possible without missing a minute of the magic. This feature also includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads each day you purchase it which is priceless. Now that we spend less time obtaining FASTPASS return times and waiting in line, we can capture more magical memories.

    I hope this helps, and have a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah day!
