Introduced in late summer of 2017, MaxPass is Disneyland’s newest and best way of getting the most out of a Disneyland vacation.

Disneyland puts getting FastPasses and downloading PhotoPass photos into the palm of your hands with their MaxPass feature that can be added onto any Disneyland park ticket, whether you are staying at one of Disney’s premier on site resorts, at one of their Good Neighbor hotels, or with your best friend that lives in Anaheim.

Obtaining FastPasses are revolutionized with MaxPass. No longer do you need to run from FastPass kiosk to FastPass kiosk to get your FastPasses for each ride. Instead, accessing MaxPass through the official Disneyland app, you can see what attractions have FastPasses available in both Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park and the time that the FastPasses are available. You can even be standing in a line for another attraction and be able to obtain your next FastPass without having to leave a ride’s line. This improves the efficiency of your park day and maximizes the fun you and your family will have. My favorite tip is to set an alarm on your phone for the time you can obtain your next FastPass and then you won’t miss out on the timing of obtaining one for your next favorite ride.

Pictures are another favorite feature of MaxPass. As soon as you activate MaxPass for the day, the rest of the PhotoPass photos taken that day are immediately available to you for download at no additional cost. Take as many photos as you wish and let the park photographer scan the code in the app. The pictures will all be available for you to post to social media which may just make your friends jealous of all the fun you are having, but they will also be there to remind you of the sweet memories you made as a family. Note that any PhotoPass photos taken on a day before you activate MaxPass will not be included with the free download.

MaxPass can be activated through the official Disneyland app as soon as you enter either Disneyland Park or California Adventure Park for the day and must be reactivated each day that you wish to use it. The current pricing is $10/person and everyone in your group must have the feature to get their FastPasses through the app. Once you select MaxPass in the app, use your phone’s camera to scan the bar code of each ticket in your party and then activate for each person individually.

MaxPass is now one of my “must-haves” for any Disneyland vacation. Once you experience it you will find you won’t want to go without it. Talk to your Me and the Mouse travel specialist about maximizing your Disneyland vacation fun with MaxPass.
