MaxPass will cost $10 a day (to start) and will allow buyers to claim and manage their Fastpass ride reservations via the Disneyland app, while they are connected to Disneyland's in-park wifi network. The system will be offered in addition to the resort's free Fastpass system, which will remain and continue to require visitors to walk to an attraction to scan their ticket and claim a return time.
MaxPass users also will be limited to the same one-Fastpass-at-a-time rule as users of the free system, but MaxPass customers will get unlimited Photopass downloads for their day, as well. Given that Disneyland sells a one-day Photopass for $39, there's now no reason to buy that product when you can get the same thing plus the mobile Fastpass management for $29 less.
Disneyland Resort annual passholders can add MaxPass to their pass for $75. However, the new service is included at no additional charge for Signature Plus passholders, who, along with Signature passholders, already got the unlimited Photopass benefit for free.
Disneyland recently changed its free Fastpass system to accommodate MaxPass, by eliminating the use of paper return time tickets and instead requiring visitors to rescan their park ticket in order to gain admittance to the Fastpass return line at their assigned return time. Disney also increased the number of available Fastpasses by allowing return times to be assigned immediately if they were available, instead of assigning them for at least 45 minutes in the future, no matter what the current wait.Tweet
