This year, Disneyland’s new digital FastPass system, MaxPass made its debut. Here are the details:
MaxPass is a mobile version of antiquated kiosk-based Disneyland FastPass system.
For those of you not familiar with how FastPass works at Disneyland, you will be surprised at how primitive the system is compared to Disney World’s app/MagicBand system. At Disneyland, visitors can essentially reserve a space in line for a ride or attraction, one at a time, by visiting a kiosk and printing a ticket. Now, with MaxPass, they will be able to make their reservations through the official Disneyland mobile app. But there is a catch…
Unlike Disney World’s FastPass+ system, which is free, to use Disneyland’s MaxPass system, it will cost you. The original MaxPass announcement pegged its cost at $10 per day with an annual fee available for annual passholders.
Much about the Disneyland MaxPass roll-out is still unclear, but I will be updating this post as more info surfaces and official announcements are made.
Update 7/13/17: Disney has officially announced that the new Disneyland MaxPass system will roll out on July 19. Here are the official details of the MaxPass program.
Update 11/13/17: Disney Parks has created this handy video to help us all navigate the ins and outs of Maxpass. Have a look:
