MaxPass, Disneyland’s New Digital FastPass System, is on its Way!

Rumor has it that Disneyland’s new digital FastPass system, MaxPass, will begin very soon. Maybe as soon as next week! 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.

I am founder and editor of and 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 6 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.
