    We will be going to Disneyland in April 2019. How early should we get tickets to be able to get fast passes to rides.

    Hiya, Debra,

    It appears you are familiar with the FastPass+ system at Walt Disney World and the magic of the Disney theme parks. I am sure you’ll feel right at home at the Disneyland Resort.

    The Disney FASTPASS service at Disneyland Resort differs from its Walt Disney World counterpart in some ways. FASTPASS reservations are made only on the day of your park visit, after you have passed through the turnstiles. With regular FASTPASS service, included with your theme park admission, you insert your park ticket into the distribution machines located near each FASTPASS attraction. A printed reminder card tells you the time for your reservation and when you will be eligible to make another reservation. During your reservation time, scan your park ticket at the FASTPASS entrance and you are on your way!

    For added convenience and benefits, I recommend you add Disney MaxPass to your tickets. With Disney MaxPass, you can make FASTPASS reservations from the convenience of your mobile device using the Disneyland app. You will also enjoy reduced times before being eligible to make additional reservations. And one of my favorite benefits of Disney MaxPass is that digital downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass photos are included for free! When you purchase your tickets, either online or on the Disneyland app, you can choose to include Disney MaxPass for the length of your ticket. Or you may opt to add the service on a day-by-day basis after you pass through the park turnstiles.

    Before you know it, you’ll be discovering that adventure is out there at the Happiest Place on Earth!
