Want a Fastpass for a Disneyland attraction? Starting Wednesday, July 19, visitors to the theme park can use their smartphones to obtain one - for a fee.

MaxPass is the newest way to get a Fastpass ride reservation time at either Disneyland or California Adventure without having to visit the Fastpass dispensers near each attraction.

It is used via the Disneyland app on a smartphone, but can only be used once a visitor with a valid admission ticket or annual pass enters one of the two parks, and has purchased MaxPass.

The new system is not free, unless the visitor has a Signature Plus and Premiere annual passes. All others wishing to use the system will have to pay $10 a day, or $75 a year if used with an annual pass.

There is no charge to use the existing Fastpass system, but it still requires walking to each attraction to get a ride reservation time.

Here is a step-by-step rundown on how MaxPass works:

*The Disneyland app must be loaded onto the smartphone. (iOS or Android operating systems)

*Log in.

*Tap the "My Tickets" button.

*Link a ticket or annual pass by scanning the barcode with the smartphone. (Note: Several tickets or passes can be linked together on one phone, useful for parents with children, but a MaxPass has to be purchased for each admission.)

*Select Fastpass.

*Select one of the Disney parks. It doesn't matter which park a visitor is in, as long as they have gone through a turnstile, but you have to be inside one of the parks.

*Select an attraction via a list that loads onto the smartphone. The list will show the next available Fastpass reservation time for each attraction.

*Once the attraction is selected, the first available Fastpass time for that attraction will be displayed on the smartphone.

*If that time works, confirm the selection - or back out of it and choose a different attraction if the time does not work. (Note: You can only choose from the next available time, the same way Fastpass works now.)

*Once the time is confirmed, there will also be information as to what time the next Fastpass reservation time may be obtained. (Note: There is a function button allowing the user to cancel a Fastpass selection too. Just like Fastpass, only one ride reservation at a time may be obtained.)

When it is time to ride that attraction, the smartphone app displays a barcode that is scanned instead of the admission ticket. (Note: If the smartphone loses power, the admission ticket or annual pass may be used as well.)

Some perks:

Once a parkgoer has redeemed their Fastpass time and is in line to an attraction, they can work on obtaining their next Fastpass time right away, if they wish.

The photos taken on attractions, or with Photopass, can be downloaded via the MaxPass system too, but they must be done that day for single-day purchasers. To download the photos taken on an attraction, get the identification number on the screens at the attraction exit and enter it where indicated after tapping the Photopass button icon.

Park officials said that as the system is used, the app will be updated and adjustments made, just like with other apps on smartphones.
