The Fastpass system used at the Disneyland Resort since 1999 is getting an upgrade.

The new system, referred to as a "Disney MaxPass," will enable visitors to use the Disneyland app on their smartphones to get a Fastpass digitally - after they have entered one of the theme parks for the day, and only that day.

It will not allow visitors to book their Fastpass reservations in advance, Disneyland officials said.

It will also follow the same rules as the paper system, in that only one Fastpass can be obtained at a time, with a time delay before the next one can be gotten. It will also still be a first-come, first-served process.

But there's a catch to use the new Disney MaxPass: it will cost visitors money - $10 per admission ticket per day. The price for those with existing or new annual passes has not yet been determined, according to Disneyland officials, adding that it includes Photopass.

Officials also announced that there would be two additional attractions with Fastpass capability - the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Toy Story Midway Mania - bringing the total to 16 rides in the two parks.

The digital Fastpasses can only be used on rides, not for shows like "World of Color," or "Fantasmic!"

Currently visitors to the resort's theme parks have to physically visit kiosks near a ride to get a Fastpass. They have to insert their ticket or annual pass into a machine to get a paper stamped with the time to return and go on the ride. Even with the digital Fastpass, the paper system will remain.

"The introduction of the new Disney Fastpass locations and the new Disney MaxPass is part of the Disneyland Resort's ongoing commitment to providing guests opportunities to further customize their experiences," said Melissa Britt, a Disneyland Resort spokesperson.

Officials did not have a date for when the new system would go online, saying that the resort needed to build the infrastructure for the digital readers at each of the 16 locations, but said it would be later this year.

It is not the "My Magic Plus" system that has been in use for a few years at Walt Disney World, which allows visitors there to book ride reservations weeks in advance and are also a digital key for hotel rooms.

Britt said there are no plans to use the "Magic Plus" system at the Disneyland Resort at this time.
