Skip the line: FAST PASS it.


The holidays have arrived at the Disneyland Resort and with holiday cheer comes holiday crowds. It is very important to plan your trip accordingly to have a fun filled day with lots of attractions. Here is a blog post that will help you get on the most popular rides with little waiting!! I received a request to give more information on the Disneyland resort’s system for fastpass. There are two options when it comes to saving a spot in line while you enjoy another attraction.

There is the Disney Maxpass which is added to your regular park admission for a fee and then the old fashioned Disney Fastpass which is free. To maximize your day and get on the most rides as possible I recommend using Disney’s MAXPASS. You can skip the wait and make fastpass selections on your phone while using the Disneyland app while in the parks. The Disney MaxPass is available for $10 per day, per ticket.

To use the Disneyland FASTPASS Service, all you need to do is:

Go to the FASTPASS distribution kiosk of the attraction you want to ride to see the standby and FASTPASS return time and insert your admission ticket into the FASTPASS machine and you will receive a FASTPASS return time ticket. During the allotted time which is usually one hour such as: 9:25 am- 10:25am return time, visit the attraction FASTPASS return entrance with your park admission ticket for scanning and you will enter the FASTPASS line and get on the ride with little to no wait.

*Keep in mind that the return in strictly enforced however you are allowed to enter the ride queue five minutes prior to your return and five minutes after but no later.
