    We will visiting for 3 days over New Years. Do you recommend that we buy the Max pass when we get there or in advance? What is the disadvantage of buying the Max pass upon arrival?

    Hi, Parul!

    New Years in the Disneyland Resort is going to be magical!  If you are actually in the parks to ring in the New Year, make sure to check out the activities planned, such as the "Fountains and Fireworks" Countdown to 2018 in Disney's California Adventure Park. It is going to be one amazing party to celebrate 2018!

    In my opinion, the biggest advantage of adding Disney MaxPass ahead of time is the convenience. When purchasing your Disneyland theme park tickets online, you can simply add on the MaxPass option. This way, your tickets are all set to go. Just have the Disneyland Mobile App on your smartphone to easily make your FASTPASS selections in a jiffy during your fun days in the parks. The downside is that MaxPass is non-refundable, so if you add the option but decide to not really use it, you still have paid the per guest/per day upcharge for the service. 

    Regardless if upgrading to MaxPass or sticking with the complimentary FASTPASS (walking to each attraction to get your FASTPASS return time ticket) make sure to use one of these methods. Parks will be crowded with many guests wanting to spend New Years with Mickey and his Pals, so zipping through the FASTPASS line will really be nice as opposed to the stand-by lines. 

    Wishing you a magical holiday season and best wishes in 2018!
