This year, Disneyland’s new digital FastPass system, MaxPass made its debut. Here are the details:
MaxPass is a mobile version of Disneyland’s antiquated kiosk-based 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:
