What is Disneyland MaxPass?

Disneyland MaxPass is an optional add-on to your Disneyland park ticket that allows you to make FastPass selections from your mobile device using the Disneyland app. It also includes unlimited downloads of your PhotoPass pictures for the day. The MaxPass system allows you to bypass the main “standby line” for different attractions and experiences and go into an express “FastPass” line, significantly cutting down your wait time.

When buying your Disneyland tickets through authorized sellers like Get Away Today, you can add MaxPass to your tickets. This is an excellent option if you know in advance that you want to use MaxPass each day of your visit.

Purchase MaxPass at the Disneyland Resort

Once you’re at Disneyland, you can add MaxPass to your park tickets on a day-by-day basis. Scan your group’s tickets into the Disneyland app and select the ones you’d like to add MaxPass to.
