The introduction of MaxPass at Disneyland created a lot of confusion about whether and when you have to pay to use Fastpass. Obviously since we're trying to get you the most fun at Disney for the least money, it's important that you understand when you do and don't have to pay for Fastpass privileges!
Cost of Fastpass+ At Walt Disney World: $0
Online and through the free Walt Disney World My Disney Experience app, you can manage your Fastpass+ reservations. The nice thing about Fastpass+ is that if you do your prep work, you'll still be able to get a leg up on everyone else.
Cost of MaxPass at Disneyland: $10 per Person per day
It's important to keep in mind that Disneyland's traditional, paper-ticket based Fastpass system is free to use! Unlike in Walt Disney World, however, there is a way to pay to get a leg up on the Fastpass competition.
If you want to upgrade to MaxPass, which allows you to reserve Fastpass from the free Disneyland app and with slightly better restrictions than the paper-ticket system, you'll need to pay $10 per ticket per day. Undercover Tourist has a great MaxPass guide if you need to know more.
Cost of Disney Premier Access at Shanghai Disney Resort: Varies (~$8 per Ride)
Shanghai Disneyland has a free Fastpass system that, like the MaxPass or Fastpass+ can be booking via the free Shanghai Disney Resort app.
We're pretty sure we've some variance in the exact prices of Disney Premier Access at Shanghai Disney Resort, but currently you can purchase Disney Premier Access for 50 Chinese Yuan per ride (roughly $8) or 275 Chinese Yuan (roughly $42) for 8 available rides.
Cost of Fastpass at Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Tokyo Disney Resort: Free
The remaining Disney resorts all operate on the traditional, paper ticket system for Fastpass. At all three of these resorts, Fastpass is free, but not accessible through any app. Our guide to Fastpass at Disneyland Paris is here.
