Disneyland MaxPass Tip Sheet

When you add the Disney MaxPass feature to your ticket, you’ll be able to download, save and share all of your Disney PhotoPass photos captured during an entire day. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to reserve digital Disney FASTPASS selections right from your mobile device using the Disneyland app while you’re in the parks. Enjoy both services for the introductory price of only $10 per ticket, per day!

Disney MaxPass = Disney PhotoPass Downloads + Digital FASTPASS Selections

They’ve combined 2 popular services to help you make the most of the magic! With the Disney MaxPass feature, you can:

Get Unlimited Disney PhotoPass Downloads for the Day – Share an entire day’s worth of Disney PhotoPass memories with family and friends! You’ll even be able to access photos taken on select attractions and during select Character dining experiences. Magic Shots are also included. Simply ask your Disney PhotoPass Photographer to pose you for a Magic Shot, and a select Disney Character or fun surprise will appear in your photo after it’s taken.

Make FASTPASS Selections from Your Mobile Device While You’re in the Parks – With this electronic option, you won’t need to walk over to a kiosk to secure a FASTPASS entitlement—you can simply make a FASTPASS selection (subject to availability) using the Disneyland app and then scan your code at the entrance when it’s time to experience the attraction.

Guests are strongly advised to check the day’s FASTPASS ticket availability and other park details before purchasing the Disney MaxPass feature or using a park ticket with Disney MaxPass. Popular attraction FASTPASS tickets may not be available at the time of Disney MaxPass purchase or use as FASTPASS tickets are limited and availability is not guaranteed. Disney MaxPass is nonrefundable and subject to restrictions and change without notice.

Be on the lookout for our photographers who are poised and ready to take your photos at several scenic locations throughout Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park—at Character Experiences, select dining locations, special events and more. You can also find them wandering the parks, seeking to capture magical moments of you and your entire family.

Select attractions even have cameras positioned in just the right spots to catch your priceless, in-the-moment expressions. You’ll just need to remember to link your 8-character Attraction ID, located on the preview wall, to your Disney account.

How Guests with the Disney MaxPass Feature Use Digital FASTPASS Service

Here’s how Guests with the Disney MaxPass feature can make a FASTPASS selection for one of 16 attractions, if available:

Tap “Get FASTPASS” to make your FASTPASS selection and receive a Return-Time window.

When it’s time to enjoy the attraction, head to the FASTPASS Return entrance and hold your mobile device up to the scanner so it can read your FASTPASS code.

If your plans change, no problem. You can easily cancel or change your selection on the My Plans screen. Please keep in mind FASTPASS availability is limited and not guaranteed.


Remember, you cannot purchase MaxPass until you are inside the theme park.

As soon as you get in, purchase your MaxPass, and select FastPasses for any THRILL rides you want to go on. They will always have the longest lines, and usually run out of FastPasses in the afternoon, so choose them FIRST.

Pay attention to the window in which you can choose your next FastPass. It may be before your current FastPass selection. As soon as you can, choose another FastPass.

If you don’t end up using a FastPass, it’s not a big deal. You can cancel your FastPass from your phone.

Stop for pictures everywhere you see Disney Photopass photographers. Get everyone in the picture. Remember, they’re all going to be free unlimited downloads!
