Fast Pass is Your VIP Ticket – Learn How…

One of the best guest features at Disneyland is the Fast Pass.  For rides, you bypass the long regular wait lines with a preferred “Fast Pass” line and feel like a VIP!  For events, Fast Pass gives access to preferred viewing areas. Take full advantage.  Prepare a Fast Pass strategy before you arrive . Here’s how.

There are two ways to get a Fast Pass at Disneyland:

Max Pass

Pay $15 for a Max Pass (cost per day per person*) on your Disneyland App after you enter the park.

  • Use the Max Pass feature on your Disneyland app to secure your Fast Pass

See “MAX PASS for details”.

Fast Pass Ticket

Get a FREE Fast Pass at ride/event Fast Pass terminal. Fast Pass tickets are first come, first serve.

  • Each ride or event has a unique Fast Pass ticket terminal location

See Disneyland.com or your Disneyland App for locations.

Disneyland PASS HOLDERS: Max Pass is included for Signature Plus level and above. All other pass holders can purchase Max Pass for the duration of their pass for $100 OR pay per day ($15) when they visit the parks.
