    I am visiting Disneyland this week with my daughter who is a season pass holder. I have purchased a 2 day ticket from our local retailer and wonder when I should I register the ticket to the app? Do I need to wait until I have presented the card at entry?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited just thinking about your trip being right around the corner. With the holiday season coming to a close, historically the crowds in January have been lower than average. This is a great benefit to visiting this month as wait times are typically lower and you can maximize your days at the parks!

    I'm glad you are already prepared with your park ticket as this will save you time when you arrive! Once you have your park ticket, you are more than welcome to link it to the Disneyland App before you arrive by scanning the barcode or entering the ticket ID number in the "My Tickets" section of the app. Your ticket will not be activated until you enter the park. Although your ticket will be linked electronically to your account, I always still recommend holding on to your paper ticket.

    Once your ticket is linked to the app and activated at the gate, you can also add the Disney MaxPass feature! If you haven't visited the Resort in the last year, this feature may be new to you. With Disney MaxPass you can easily make electronic Disney FASTPASS reservations right from your mobile device. It also includes unlimited downloads of PhotoPass pictures taken throughout your stay. For shorter visits of one to two days I always recommend adding Disney MaxPass, because it really maximizes your visit when you are short on time. With so much to see, experience, and eat at the Disneyland Resort, I need every minute I can get! With the time we save not having to walk to attractions obtaining paper FASTPASS reservations, we can make more memories or have extra time for another Dole Whip.

    I hope you and your daughter have an amazing trip! Thanks for stopping by!
