    Dorothy from PA Asked

    How far in advance can you get Fast Passes for Disneyland & California Adventure Parks?. Also does Disneyland do a separate admission to a Holiday Party for Christmas?.

    Greetings, Dorothy! Thanks for returning to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    At the Disneyland Resort, you will obtain all your FASTPASSES on the day you are visiting - they are not available to select in advance. Once you enter either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, you can pull your first FASTPASS either by visiting a FASTPASS distribution kiosk or by using Disney MaxPass through the Disneyland app. I used Disney MaxPass on a recent visit and wow, was it a time-saver! You can select a FASTPASS for select attractions from anywhere in the parks and often the return window to ride is just a short time away. My best tip for FASTPASSES whether you are using the traditional service or Disney MaxPass is to always be aware when you can obtain your next FASTPASS and to select one as soon as you are able. This will allow you to maximize your time and hit a lot of your favorite attractions within a short time frame.

    Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are truly magical! While there isn't a holiday party here, there are all sorts of festive decorations and entertainment to enjoy. You simply must take a ride on "it's a small world" Holiday and then come back to see the facade light up at night. It is breathtaking! Also, A Christmas Fantasy Parade is another must do as it gleefully marches through Disneyland Park in the afternoons.

    Please stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with any other questions you may have. We simply love helping Guests plan magical vacations to the Happiest Place on Earth!
