Download This Episode

This is the debate we have been anticipating… Fastpass vs MaxPass! Two very similar systems to avoid the lines at Disneyland, but one is free and one is an additional charge. Find out the similarities, and which one may be right for you in this episode of the Disneyland with Kids Podcast.

In This Episode – Fastpass and MaxPass at Disneyland:

Becca from This Crazy Adventure Called Life and Leslie from Trips with Tykes have been waiting for this epsiode. Which one is better, Fastpass or MaxPass? The answer depends. We may have also had to bring in someone to moderate this debate to make sure we stuck to the facts and didn’t get passionate about our personal bias towards each system.

Before we get into the show notes… Disneyland increased the price of MaxPass (and tickets) just days after we recorded, and the day before this episode went live. So it is important to note that ticket prices and MaxPass prices can change.

If you are listening before February 20, 2020, you can still lock in the old prices of both MaxPass and Disneyland tickets through our partner at Get Away Today.
