I was very happy to learn that my husband made plans take me to Disney for my 31st birthday this year. We go to the parks a lot since we became Annual Passholders but knowing I was going to spend a day there that was all about ME was pretty exciting. We got to see family, go on all of our favorite rides, I handed out some homemade Disney decals to random people in the park and we ate a bunch of fun food. Best of all I FINALLY brought my good camera with me and made time to take some quality photos of the place I love.
- While I'm thinking of it, we used the MaxPass for the first time while on our trip and it was not great. I can see the appeal but we had a terrible experience with it. For one, the WiFi at Disneyland sucks, and that's just the truth. I don't blame Disney, it is just crazy awful service and for MaxPass to work you need the app. Once we got it to work and sign in (no joke it took 20 mins) we selected our first fastpass and the ride was down. So we deleted the option and selected a different ride. It was great not to have to go to the fastpast distribution area and it saved us some time. However, the park was busy...like Christmas time busy (direct quote from cast member on the crowd). So later we arrived at Space Mountain to use our MaxPass and the ride was down. The cast member told me that the app would update the fast pass to an experience pass to use on any ride. It didn't. And I was unable to use Maxpass the rest for the day because by that point (1pm) all fastpasses were done. It was THAT busy. So basically it was a waste of $20. But lesson learned. We still had an amazing time.
