Disney MaxPass Launching July 19 at Disneyland Resort


Disney will begin charging for a special version of its Fastpass ride line queue system at Disneyland on July 19, 2017.

Disney MaxPass is a bundle of Photopass and Fastpass+ that will be offered as a daily or yearly pass for guests. Disney Parks has added Toy Story Midway Mania in California Adventure and Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland to the Fastpass options for the Disneyland Resort parks.

MaxPass will be offered to guests for $10 per day per person and Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders will be able to purchase Disney MaxPass for $75 for the life of their current pass.

If you are a Signature Plus Passholder then you will receive Disney MaxPass as part of your annual passport benefits.

This new system is can be purchased with your ticket on the Disneyland app or in the Disneyland Resort parks as an add-on. If you have an existing ticket then you will be able to purchase Disney MaxPass after entering the park through the Disneyland app.

Disney MaxPass will offer guests the chance to book Fastpass+ (for ANY Fastpass enabled ride, not just the two new ones!) using their own phone. At this time, you will only be allowed to book one Fastpass+ at a time.

Don’t worry, Guests at Disneyland will be allowed to continue to use their park ticket to acquire Fastpass return paper tickets at the various ride kiosks in the same fashion as they do today.

As for the PhotoPass part of MaxPass, guests will be allowed to edit and save digital images that they have taken within the park and on various rides with unlimited downloads.

  • One person will be allowed to make Fastpass+ choices for the entire group, once each person has paid.
  • Each person must be in the park before that day before you can begin reserving Fastpass+.
  • You MUST be inside one of the Disneyland theme parks in order to make Fastpass+ reservations.
  • You will only be able to reserve ONE FASTPASS AT A TIME.

Will you want to use Disney MaxPass on your next trip to Disneyland?

  1. I got that, but I wonder if it’s worth it. I think, and hope, that with a good park touring plan, it won’t be necessary, but fear headliners might be booked up and unavailable for those trying to gobit on foot. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  2. I agree. You have to know how to “work the system” to get a lot of fast passes in a day, but it is highly attainable. I learn more and more each time I go how to “work the system”.

  3. U can see fastpass return times on the Disneyland app … but u have to click on the wait time for the attraction and then it will show return times for fastpasses if they have any left

  4. I was pretty upset until I read down in the Disney Parks Blog article that Signature+ passes would have it included.

  5. I’m going to wait and see how it works prior to deciding. It will all depend on availability for me. If the rides that are available don’t really require a FP I’ll skip it but if it means the option to ride multiple ‘headliners’ it would be something I’d consider.

  6. I think- is it worth $10 a day?? To book 1 attraction? That’s a lot of money when you have a family and consider the cost of photopass at WDW is less than $200, AND fast passes are free at WDW.
    I think Disney is way overstepping with their pay to play extras.

  7. Yes! Would pay for MaxPass to save some steps. We were at Disneyland this week and logged over 10 miles per day. I’m
    assuming the Disneyland MaxPass app will show the FastPass distribution time to help decide which FP fits the schedule. The current Disneyland APP only shows wait times so we used Lines APP to decide which paper FP we would pull next. Thanks so much for the info!

  8. Will this guarantee a fastpass spot or will it work like it currently does to where some rides often times will say on line “no fast pass available” because they have all been distributed? All the rides that you need a fast pass often times run out of fast passes by the end of the day.

  9. Does your second bullet mean you can buy the pass a day or more in advance as long as everyone is in the park at the moment of purchase? My apologies but I will be there on Friday and I am not sure what you mean there.
