At the beginning of the year, Disneyland Resort announced the coming of a new MaxPass system, that would combine the benefits of mobile FASTPASS booking with unlimited PhotoPass downloads. Disneyland fans were quick to respond to the announcement, and it looks like we will finally see how MaxPass operates; it will debut on July 19th.
MaxPass operates through the Disneyland app, so guests will need to register there first.
It may be purchased when guests buy their ticket, or later on through the app. MaxPass has an introductory cost of $10; Annual Passholders may make a payment of $75 to purchase MaxPass for the life of their current pass. Premier and Signature Plus passholders need not pay any additional fees, as MaxPass will be automatically included as part of their annual pass.
Guests will still be able to use the FASTPASS service at no extra cost from attraction FASTPASS kiosks by getting a FASTPASS return time using their admission ticket.
Here are the terms and conditions for MaxPass from Disney Parks Blog’s announcement:
“Guests are strongly advised to check the day’s FASTPASS ticket availability and other Park details before purchasing Disney MaxPass or using a Park ticket with Disney MaxPass as FASTPASS tickets for your preferred attractions may not be available at the time of purchase or use. FASTPASS tickets are limited and availability is not guaranteed. FASTPASS tickets may be obtained only while you are in the Parks and may not be available for entertainment through Disney MaxPass. An experience that does not have Disney FASTPASS availability at a kiosk will not be available using Disney MaxPass. The Disney MaxPass benefit will expire at the end of the day or when the Passport it is associated with expires, as applicable. Disney MaxPass is nonrefundable, nontransferable, may not be redeemed for cash and is subject to other restrictions. Price, terms, entitlements, attractions and entertainment are subject to change or cancellation without notice. Passholders who purchase the Disney MaxPass benefit may not use the value of any separate ticket media toward the purchase price of Disney MaxPass.”
