Despite its name, the MaxPass system is not, in fact, available at Disney World. It is a feature exclusive to Disneyland Resort in California. However, it is a system that has revolutionized the way guests experience Disneyland, and it’s worth understanding how it works.
MaxPass is not available at Disney World but is a digital FastPass system exclusive to Disneyland Resort in California. It’s a paid service that allows guests to reserve FastPasses for attractions and entertainment through the Disneyland mobile app. For $20 per person, per day, guests can make digital FastPass reservations from anywhere within the park and also receive unlimited downloads of PhotoPass photos.
What is MaxPass?
MaxPass is a digital FastPass system offered at Disneyland Resort in California. It is a paid service that allows guests to reserve FastPasses for attractions and entertainment through the Disneyland mobile app, eliminating the need to visit physical FastPass kiosks.
For $20 per person, per day, guests can make digital FastPass reservations from anywhere within the park, saving them time and allowing them to experience more attractions. Additionally, MaxPass includes unlimited downloads of PhotoPass photos, including ride photos and character dining experiences.
How does MaxPass work?
Once you have purchased MaxPass and linked your park tickets to the Disneyland app, you can begin making FastPass reservations as soon as you enter the park. You can view the first available FastPass times for eligible attractions and select the best time for your party.
One key point to note is that while MaxPass doesn’t sell out, FastPass reservations can run out based on availability. So, it’s best to make your reservations early in the day for popular attractions.
The Advantages of MaxPass
There are several advantages to using MaxPass at Disneyland Resort:
- Convenience: MaxPass allows you to make FastPass reservations from your smartphone, eliminating the need to visit FastPass kiosks.
- Time-saving: You can secure FastPasses with less time and effort, allowing you to enjoy more attractions during your visit.
- Park hopping: MaxPass is beneficial for guests who like to hop between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, as you can make FastPass reservations in the other park while walking over.
- Faster reservations: With MaxPass, you can make your next FastPass reservation as soon as your mobile FastPass barcode has been scanned at an attraction.
- Unlimited PhotoPass downloads: MaxPass includes unlimited downloads of your PhotoPass pictures, including ride attraction photos, character dining, and other PhotoPass locations around Disneyland.
- Access to FastPass for shows: MaxPass allows guests to obtain FastPasses for shows such as Fantasmic!
MaxPass vs. Standard Disney FastPass
While both MaxPass and the standard Disney FastPass are designed to help guests save time and enjoy more attractions, there are a few key differences. First, MaxPass is a paid service, while the standard FastPass is free. Second, MaxPass allows you to make reservations from your phone, while standard FastPass requires you to visit a kiosk. Finally, MaxPass includes unlimited PhotoPass downloads, a feature not included with the standard FastPass.
While MaxPass is not available at Disney World, Disney World guests can utilize the new Disney Genie and Genie+ services. These services, similar to MaxPass, aim to enhance guests’ experiences and help them make the most of their visit. The key to a magical Disney trip is understanding these systems and using them to your advantage.
