Before Making Your Magic Key Purchase

Review Magic Key Details
Each Magic Key pass type has different benefits, including blockout dates and park reservation availability. For each Magic Key pass type that you are considering:

  • Learn more about the Magic Key program, including Magic Key pass types, benefits and important details.
  • Check the Magic Key calendar to review blockout dates and current reservation availability.
  • Please note that Magic Key park reservation availability changes frequently. After you view the Magic Key Calendar, available dates may be unavailable. Magic Key park reservations are not guaranteed for any specific date or park, no matter the pass type.

Create a Disney Account

  • You’ll need a Disney account to purchase a Magic Key pass online. If you don’t have one, create a Disney account here.
  • If you’re a California resident, your stored Disney account address must be a California address to view any monthly payment options for available Magic Key passes when they are on sale.
  • If you already have a Disney account, make sure your contact information is current.

Confirm Your Disney Account Payment Method

  • You may want to add and save a preferred credit card in your Disney account. Enter your card details manually instead of relying on auto-populated details that may be incorrect. If you’re a California resident, make sure the credit card has a California billing address to use for monthly payments.
  • A maximum of $1000 from a Disney Gift Card can also be used as a method of payment online when you pay in full for a new Magic Key pass. Only one Disney Gift Card can be used per transaction, so if you have multiple gift cards, combine them in advance. Disney Gift Cards cannot be used to purchase renewals at this time.

Prepare Required Party Information
Each Magic Key pass must be assigned to an individual at the time of purchase (maximum of 10 passes). Passes may not be reassigned after purchase. You will need to provide the following information for each person in your party:

  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Phone number (Guests 18 years of age and older)
  • Email (Guests 18 years of age and older)

The provided email address may be used to communicate program updates and important information about the pass.

Ticket Upgrades
Eligible Disneyland Resort theme park tickets may be upgraded to an available Magic Key pass while passes are available for sale, subject to restrictions. Learn more about ticket upgrades. Upgrades may not be available from time to time or at any given time.

For more information and to book a Disneyland Resort vacation package or to purchase day tickets/park hoppers, fill out this FREE QUOTE FORM and a Travel agent will get in touch with you soon.

Pass Upgrades
A current Magic Key pass may be upgraded to an available higher pass type for the remainder of its pass year. The difference in purchase price between the 2 passes must be paid in full at the time of upgrade. The expiration date of the Magic Key pass will not change. Passes may be upgraded at the Disneyland Resort ticket booth only, while passes are available for sale. Please note that you might encounter a wait at the ticket booth.

If you choose to submit your email address and opt in to being notified by email when it’s your turn, you’ll receive 2 separate emails containing a unique link.

So, please be prepared to select your Magic Key pass and check out once you open the link. If you miss your turn, you’ll need to rejoin the queue.

Please note: Magic Key pass availability is limited. Opting in to be notified by email when it’s your turn does not guarantee the opportunity to purchase a pass.

Passes Are Nonrefundable and Nontransferable
Choose carefully as passes are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Don’t have multiple people in your party purchasing passes.

After Making Your Purchase

How to Make a Reservation for Your First Visit
Visit park reservations to select the date and theme park that you wish to visit from the available Magic Key theme park reservations.

Theme park reservations are limited in number and subject to the availability of applicable park reservation allocations, applicable blockout dates, and theme park capacity; and are not guaranteed for any specific dates or park, no matter the ticket or pass type. Availability can change until a reservation is finalized.

Guests with park admission that includes the Park Hopper benefit may choose, pending availability, which theme park to start their day at—and may cross over and switch between parks on the same day beginning at 11:00 AM (subject to availability).

Please check the Park Hours calendar and the Disneyland app for the most up-to-date Park Hopper hours, as they could change, depending on the day and park. The ability to visit the other park will be subject to that park’s capacity limitations, operational hours, closures and other restrictions, and is not guaranteed.

If you need to cancel or remove a Guest from your reservation, you’ll need to do so before 11:59 PM Pacific Time, the day before your visit (or such other time as specified by the then current no-show policy), to avoid a no-show.
