Disneyland Still Adding FastPass, MaxPass to Pirates of the Caribbean Next Month

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Slated to be added when Pirates of the Caribbean returned to the Disneyland Resort with the new auction scene on June 8th, 2018, the delayed addition of FastPass and MaxPass services will finally take place next month.

While Pirates of the Caribbean has a pretty high capacity for guests, the queue has been strained in recent years and it is not abnormal to see it stretch through most of the waterfront area in New Orleans Square. The addition of FastPass and MaxPass will try to alleviate this issue, giving guests an opportunity to ride outside of waiting in the standby line.

In addition to the paper FastPass distribution (which we assume will be shared with the existing Haunted Mansion distribution area), it will offer MaxPass as well, allowing guests to book the ride reservations digitally on their phones via the Disneyland app.

The scheduled start date for MaxPass and FastPass at Pirates of the Caribbean is now August 7th.
