If you plan to visit Disneyland later this year, you need to check out Breaking News: Disneyland Resort to Roll Out MaxPass Product at Extra Charge.

Disney FastPass

Disneyland’s FastPass system works by using paper FastPasses. When you enter the park, you head to the attraction that you would like to retrieve a FastPass time. A kiosk is at the ride that will give you a small piece of paper that will have your return time. Once your time becomes available, you return to the ride and enter through the FastPass queue. You enjoy a shorter wait time. It’s simple and it works!

What is Disney MaxPass?

Disney MaxPass is an expansion of the FastPass system. With MaxPass you will be able to bundle your Photopass and FastPass for a charge of $10 per day. You will have unlimited downloads of your Photopass images and the convenience of reserving your FastPass times through the Disneyland App on your mobile device. The FastPass system in effect now will still be available at no cost and will work as it does today, a paper FastPass can be retrieved at the attractions kiosk. For all of the details of this new product, visit Kenny The Pirate HERE.

Will MaxPass come to Disney World?

Anytime a new product or system is launched at Disneyland, it always comes to mind if it will eventually make its way to Disney World. Questions swirl around in my head; Would I really pay more for this privilege? Will we eventually have to pay for all of our FastPasses?

My first thoughts are that it doesn’t actually sound too bad. After all, in the grand scheme of the amount of your Disney World vacation, what is another $10 per day for FastPass and unlimited Photopass downloads? Then there is also that other voice inside that just doesn’t want to be out any more money to have a magical vacation!

Disney World FastPass+

disneyland-fastpass-maxpassDisney World’s FastPass+ system works very different than Disneyland’s. If you are visiting Disney World and staying on property, you are able to reserve your FastPass+ return times 60 days prior to your check-in date. If you are staying off property, you can reserve your FastPasses 30 days prior to check-in.

You are allowed to reserve 3 FastPasses per day. At Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, your FastPasses can be picked from the entire list of attractions that offer it. At Epcot and Hollywood Studios the attractions are listed as a tier 1 attraction or tier 2 attraction. You are allowed to pick one from the tier 1 list and the other two must come from the tier 2 list.

What do you think?

Will Disney Maxpass come to Disney World? Right now, we can only speculate. What do you think about this system launching at Disneyland? We would love to here your thoughts.
