Disneyland provided me with a day pass to experience the parks. I purchased the max pass on my own. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
You guys probably already know that I am a Disney Vacation Club member. I have mastered the FastPass+ at Walt Disney World even getting 16 FastPasses over 3 parks in one day before. But Disneyland is a whole different animal. So when I first heard about the MaxPass (and the fact that is was only $10), well, I knew I had to try it out and see if it was worth it. Well, it is. Hands down. And here is why!
Easy To Use
Disney MaxPass is ridiculously easy to use. Much like the FastPass+ for Walt Disney World, you use an app to make your selections. You even purchase it through the app. Select the guests in your party and search for the ride and time you want. TIP: As soon as your scan your MaxPass, start searching for the next ride!
Less Time Waiting in Line
Because of the Disney MaxPass, we pretty much just walked on every ride. I was only spending one day at both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park so this allowed me to get a lot accomplished. My favorite rides were totally Mission Breakout and Incredicoaster. The new theme for that ride is amazing – AMAZING!
Unlimited Disney PhotoPass
Probably the best part about the Disney MaxPass is that you get unlimited PhotoPass access with it. How many times have you seen the BEST ride photo captured, but you don’t want to have to pay to purchase it? Well not only can you download every single ride photo with MaxPass, you also get the PhotoPass photo opps throughout the park. My friends and I had to get a few fun shots, and we were so happy they were included in the cost of the MaxPass. Like I said, worth it!
A Minor Cost
Disney MaxPass is only $10 per person per day. For a family of four like mine that is $40 per day, however, it is totally worth your time in line. Even if you are staying for a couple of days to enjoy the parks, I recommend purchasing it. The PhotoPass photos make it worth it alone, the short lines, just an extra perk!
My family is planning a trip out to Disneyland as soon as Star Wars Land opens, and I can guarantee you that we are going to be utilizing the MaxPass. Even for a family of four, it is ridiculously worth it!
