Fastpass in Disneyland 1 day dec 17th Tuesday? Worth it?

Hi. We will be in Disneyland park only one day (date above). Is it worth buying a fastpass ticket or just general day pass for 3 of us? We are thinking of buying tickets from Australia - do we just do this on Disneyland go website? Or better on another. It's my husband, myself and 17 yo daughter.

Thanks for this...:)

The use of Fastpasses at Disneyland is free. The use of which is included within every Disneyland ticket, you basically swipe your ticket at certain rides that have the Fastpass available for it at the Fastpass Machines and it pops out a Fastpass for that ride. There is no extra pass that you can purchase.

Heres more info on the Free Fastpass system and how to use it ect.

If your just purchasing a 1 day ticket, you can just do so at the Maingate ticket window, theres really no need to pre purchase a ticket as the cost is the same likely, and there are not usually any discounts offered for 1 day tickets.

However its really up to you if you would like to have a ticket ahead of time, I would just purchase that online on the Disneyland.com website and print out your E-ticket at home. That allows you to go directly the Turnstiles that go into the Park instead of getting tickets at the Maingate ticket window, but I doubt there would be much of a wait for your date.

Heres the hours ect that are out now on the Disneyland.com Calendar for your dates to help you plan your day.

If you buy your ticket online before you leave you can print it out as an A4 size paper then give this to cast member at the turnstyle/entrance .

If you wait till you get there you have to line up twice once to purchase ticket and again to get in.

Just wondering where you are staying on the 16th will it be Anahiem or you coming from somewhere else?

as said, you don't/can't buy a fastpass, they are only on a few rides anyways that even have that.. plus there are only so many given out and the popular ones go fastest... say you come by your desired ride at noon, you might get a FP that isn't valid until 9pm, or they could be all out and you get nothing so, consider that timing is everything on those and get/use them early, also while you can't use them early, you typically can if you arrive late (after the printed time window)... anyways...

buy and print your tickets ahead of showing up, you'll waste a ton of time waiting in a line that doesn't get you on a ride and sucks an hour out of your day... you'll already wait for a tram from the parking lot, a line at the bag check, and the main line at the gate, so why add a ticket line to all this when it can be avoided.

pre-purchase, print, and get there way early... if you're first in the park, you'll ride pirates twice before anyone stuck in a ticket line even gets in.

No, Fastpasses must now be used within the time window printed on the ticket and not after it. That new policy is strictly enforced now as of the beginning or so of 2013.

I dont agree with wait times suggested for ticket at the Maingate ticket window, especially for the date the OP is planning on visiting. Its usually just a few minutes as there are lots of windows. Its very unlikely Imo to ever take an hour.
