    I will be staying at the Grand Californian with my 5 granddaughters in March 2018. With the package, I have ordered 3-day admission with park hopper option. Will I still need to invest another $10 per ticket per day to use FastPass?

    Hi, Shirley!

    Not only are you a "grandmother" you are also a "fairy godmother" taking your 5 darling princesses to the Disneyland Resort for vacation. Make sure to take plenty of pictures to remember this magical visit with your granddaughters!

    Disney FASTPASS is a complimentary service available to all guests visiting the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Simply head to the attraction kiosk with your park tickets to obtain your FASTPASS return time ticket. 

    If you choose to do so, you can upgrade to Disney MaxPass which allows you to book your FASTPASS selections on the Disneyland app on your smartphone. With MaxPass, you still make your selections as you go, one at a time and based on availability. The advantage is the time saving having to physically go to obtain that FASTPASS time. It is up to you, but to stay on budget, you may want to stick with the traditional FASTPASS system.

    For a special treat, you might want to look into making dining reservations for a fun character dining experience. The girls might enjoy a fun dinner at Goofy's Kitchen or even breakfast at the Plaza Inn for "Minnie & Friends - Breakfast in the Park." Enjoy a delicious meal while meeting all your favorite Disney pals!

    Wishing you and your family a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
