  • Hi, if I buy my tickets 1 month before my visit, can I reserve the atractions with the max pass? or is it only while you are at the park?

  • Is Frozen fastpass available, on the App.?

  • in general, from maxpass to the disneyland app, i continue to enjoy the added benefits. mobile ordering truly changed the game, and i’m so glad that you continue to add to the maxpass feature.

  • @carolyn: Most of the viewing area for Anaheim’s Fantasmic is reserved for people who either buy a dining package or get a fastpass. There is very limited “standby” viewing for everyone else. It’s been that way for years now – the only change being announced here is that the Fantasmic passes can now be accessed through the MaxPass service.

    @Bob: Two big differences between MaxPass and Orlando’s FastPass+. 1) MaxPass costs extra (not included in ticket price). 2) It’s same-day only, no advance fastpass reservations. Google is your friend on this one :-).

    @Jessie: If you want to use MaxPass, you just have to pay for it. It has nothing to do with whether or not you’re staying in a Disney hotel.

  • To access the fantasmic fastpass trough maxpass, i strictly have to be an hotel guest?

  • This sounds a lot like FastPass+ at Walt Disney World. How is this different?

  • MaxPass saves time! I am no longer running to a fast pass machine to secure a ride. I can now do it from my phone, where I am at, with my family. Now I can stroll through the park and enjoy every minute of it. Please keep this feature, it really makes a difference.

  • Does this give you a special viewing area?

  • So if you get a FastPass for Fantasmic what does that allow you to do? Does that give you preferential seating?

  • Very excited to be visiting for the first time in August and we will absolutely be purchasing MaxPass for each day we’re in the parks! I love this addition!

  • Currently, these fast pass selections are detached from MaxPass, meaning you can hold another MaxPass and still pull this Fast Pass with no delay or penalty…will that remain? Meaning can I use MaxPass to select WOC FP and then immediately use MaxPass to select a FP for another attraction?

  • If you have a park-hopper ticket, can you MaxPass Fantasmic *and* World of Color on the same day? Or does the app limit you to one of the two?

  • Yeah!! Thank you!!!
