    Is the fastpass+ 30 day advanced booking available at Disneyland also? We will be there in August but already have hotel reservations off site. Thanks

    Hello, Shirley! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question!

    I am delighted to hear that you will be vacationing at the Happiest Place on Earth this August! Disney FASTPASS Service at the Disneyland Resort is a bit different than the FastPass+ system at the Walt Disney World Resort. Here, you have two options:The traditional paper FASTPASS system that is included with your theme park admission or Disney MaxPass which is available for a daily fee per ticket. With the traditional system, you will visit a FASTPASS distribution kiosk for an attraction you would like to ride, insert your theme park ticket, and a FASTPASS reminder ticket will be distributed. When it's time to ride, you will then scan your theme park ticket to enter the FASTPASS queue. 

    With Disney MaxPass, you will make FASTPASS selections on your mobile device using the Disneyland app. You can't make any selections until your theme park ticket is scanned and you enter one of the parks. So, there is no pre-booking window like at the Walt Disney World Resort. Instead, you will make selections one-by-one throughout the day and scan the digital FASTPASS in the app to ride the attraction. All Guests, no matter if they are staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel or not, are eligible to purchase and use Disney MaxPass. 

    I wholeheartedly recommend using Disney MaxPass as it will save you incredible amounts of time! You will find yourself going from attraction to attraction with very minimal waiting. Plus, all your PhotoPass photos taken on a day you use MaxPass are included. It's simply amazing!

    If you have any more questions about Disney MaxPass, please stop by again and I'd love to assist you!
