  • Can’t WAIT to experience Disney with my 5 year old in a few weeks! We HAVE to do the Jedi experience…we are HUGE Star Wars nerds! He will FREAK OUT if he gets to take on Darth or Kylo!! I’m also really excited about Fantastic & World of Color!
    Super Happy about the MaxPass option, my network provider better work!!

  • Going to Disneyland in October with multiple families. Do we all need MaxPass or does just 1 person have to have it?

  • So happy I got to see the main street electrical parade and got to see some of the summer of heroes stuff in California Adventure when I visited in June. Watching the fantasmic live streams and it is amazing.
