    My stepdaughter has AP with MaxPass her mom got her we don’t go often so we got regular tickets so we still have to get max to go w her on rides?

    Greetings, Veronica, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question!

    I bet your stepdaughter is loving the convenience and accessibility of her Annual Passport with Disney MaxPass! Not only does MaxPass save time waiting in line thanks to digital Disney FASTPASS selections, but it also includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads from the day! 

    Since you’ll be visiting the Disneyland Resort with your stepdaughter using your regular theme-park tickets, you’ll have the option of adding on MaxPass to your tickets at a daily rate. This way, you could create a FASTPASS party on the Disneyland app for your whole group, including your stepdaughter, for any attractions you’d like to ride together. Linking Annual Passports and tickets to your Disneyland app is a simple, stress-free process – here’s a helpful step-by-step!

    However, you don’t have to add MaxPass to enjoy attractions with your stepdaughter. Your group could instead use Disney FASTPASS Service at in-park FASTPASS distribution points at no additional cost. Or, you can simply enter the “Stand-by” line with your group at any attraction. 

    If it’s within your budget, I’d recommend adding Disney MaxPass to your tickets, since it’s a great way to get the most out of your Disney day! As a mom of three little Mouseketeers, it’s tough to wait in long lines on warm summer days, so MaxPass is a lifesaver for me! If you choose not to use MaxPass, I suggest arriving at the parks about 45 minutes to one hour early for “rope drop” so you can knock out as many of your “must-do” attractions before the wait times get longer. The first two hours after park opening are pure magic! 

    I hope this helps as you plan your upcoming family vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth! 

    See ‘ya real soon!
