    Hello, Going to Disneyland for 1 day in Oct, family of 4 - how do I select fast passes prior to our arrival if staying offsite? Is it free and up to 3 passes? Thanks!

    Greetings, Diane!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds to me like you are pretty familiar with planning vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, so I can't wait for you to visit the place where it all began at the Disneyland Resort!

    While many aspects of the Disneyland Resort are similar to the Walt Disney World Resort, there are definitely some differences. You will find that you will not need to plan as many details of your trip or make reservations as far in advance. We love this, because we can be a little more spontaneous. Disneyland Resort offers a FASTPASS service similar to the Walt Disney World Resort, but you will not need to book these prior to your stay. Everyone has the same opportunity to obtain Disney FASTPASS selections every day at park opening. You can make your FASTPASS selections one-at-a-time throughout the entire day in person at FASTPASS distribution kiosks or on your mobile device using Disney MaxPass on the Disneyland app. The Disney MaxPass feature is an additional fee per person, per day, but to me is priceless. I always recommend adding Disney MaxPass as it truly maximizes the amount of attractions you can experiences as well as minimizes your time in lines. With only one day at the Resort, it's even more of a necessity to make the most out of your trip.

    Another great time-saver for us is Mobile Ordering on the Disneyland app. This allows you to order and pay for food and beverages at select Quick Service restaurants in both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. It's another fantastic feature to help families spend more time experiencing the Disneyland Resort and make magical memories together.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions about planning your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!
