What is It?

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.

With the purchase of Maxpass, you also  have the ability to download an unlimited number of Disney PhotoPass  images for a day.

How Much Does it Cost?

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. From the looks of it, this may be an introductory price.

Where can you purchase it?

Maxpass can be purchased, along with park tickets here.

How Do You Use Maxpass?

Disney Parks has created this handy video to help us all navigate the ins and outs of Maxpass. Have a look:

Update 1/26/20: You can now use Apple Pay to purchase MaxPass using the Disneyland App

I am founder and editor of My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
