Every time we go to Disneyland, and practically every shop we walk into (and there are a lot shops you walk through at Disneyland!) my kids want a souvenir. Early on, we started to collect pressed penny’s! It is a perfect, $.51 to keep them satisfied. It’s fun to find different machines all over the park. You can also buy a cute Disneyland collection book to keep your coins safe at many of the stores inside Disneyland. You can get a map at city hall of where the penny press machines are or you can also find the locations on the Disneyland app. A perfect souvenir if you’re on a budget!
If it’s been a few years since you’ve been to Disneyland, you’ll want to become familiar with another option on how to do FastPass, it is called Max Pass. We’ve utilized it before, and LOVED IT!
Here’s how it works: you add MaxPass to your park ticket through the Disneyland app. It costs $15 per day, per ticket. Instead of walking to each individual ride and inserting your ticket to get your fast pass, you do it all on your mobile device! So easy. When you open the Disneyland app, you will see on the first screen, “get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass”. Click that and add it to your ticket. (You can ONLY do this once you have ENTERED the park.) Once it’s added you can select the ride you want a FASTPASS for. SO! As soon as you enter the park, add your first FASTPASS on MaxPass using your mobile device. It will then tell you when you can get another one. Set an alarm and as soon as you can get another FASTPASS, jump on your mobile device and get another! If you’re at the park at opening and on top of getting new fast passes, you can get all of the major rides in before the afternoon!!
BONUS 📷📸: the MaxPass comes with PhotoPass! This is HUGE!! All the photos the photographers take, you will be able to download for FREE!! They are included in the $15 you pay. Make sure the photographer scans the PhotoPass code on your app (or hands you a paper card you can link) and you’ll have access to all your pictures! Photographers are typically at the castle, some of the characters (picture above with Mickey is from PhotoPass!), and also ALL OF THE RIDES! For example, Space Mountain, Splash mountain, Cars, Guardians of the Galaxy, you’ll get all the of those pictures taken while on the ride!! MaxPass is worth it for the pictures alone.

Are you pregnant?
If you are, then congratulations! Between the three of us sisters we have eleven kiddos! So usually one of us is pregnant when we go to the parks. And guess what, there is still SO much you can do while pregnant! Of course it can be hard on you with all the walking so make sure to take breaks and eat a snack, that’s half the reason we go to the parks pregnant, all the delicious snacks! So not only can you eat all the food but there are still plenty of rides you can go on!
