What is the Disneyland Buddy Pass? | Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!

Guide to using the Buddy Pass in Disneyland &  California Adventure Park.

If eligible, the Buddy Pass for the Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue attraction at Disney California Adventure Park can significantly reduce your group's wait time in line.

Are you eager to make the most of your visit to Disney California Adventure Park? Look no further than the Buddy Pass, a convenient option available exclusively for the Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue attraction. Designed to expedite the process and keep the lines moving smoothly, this pass allows you and a friend to enjoy the attraction together, much like the single rider lines in other Disney parks.

How It Works: 

  • Approach the queue entrance and ask a cast member about the Buddy Pass. 
  • If eligible, receive a paper card from the cast member. 
  • Proceed to the left, which serves as the exit for the attraction. 
  • Another cast member will guide you to a designated waiting area. 
  • Wait until an empty row becomes available, and you'll be called to join. 

Eligibility and Limitations:

  • The Buddy Pass is for small groups of 1-2 people. 
  • Special seating requests are not available. 
  • Availability of the Buddy Pass is subject to park discretion. 
  • Not guaranteed to provide a faster experience, especially on busy days. 

Benefits and Considerations:

  • Shorter wait times have been reported by some users of the Buddy Pass. 
  • You'll miss out on the regular queue's wall decor and hidden Mickey's. 
  • The Buddy Pass is specific to the Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue attraction. 
  • It allows you to ride with a friend and expedite the filling of empty rows. 

In Disneyland at The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh they offer something similar called the “Roo Pass”. 

This pass allows one group who is able to be accommodated into a single "beehicle" row to enter the "Kanga Line" through the exit.

  • This pass does not guarantee immediate boarding. 
  • All Guests must meet all boarding requirements. 
  • Special seating requests may not be accommodated. 
  • Subject to availability. 
  • Valid only at The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

In summary, the Buddy or Roo Pass offers an efficient way to maximize your time at Disneyland/DCA. By allowing you and a friend to ride together and swiftly fill empty rows, Disney aims to enhance guest experiences and ensure a smoother flow within the park. While availability may vary, it's certainly worth checking with the cast members at the queue entrance to see if the Buddy Pass or Roo Pass is an option for you during your visit. So grab a buddy and get ready for a memorable adventure!
