    bought the CA Residents tickets &know we can’t use them towards the Magic Key. I want to buy a key now&haven’t used the tickets yet. Will it affect ticket usage? Can we use the parking and merch discounts with the key while using the tickets only?

    Hi Ginny! Welcome to planDisney.

    I have loved seeing all the photos of new Magic Key Holders visiting Disneyland Resort and unlocking their key to all the magic! I am ready to hop on a plane, get one of those keys myself, and head straight to the Magic Key Lounge. I'm so excited for you!

    You are welcome to use your California Resident tickets just as you would have before becoming a Magic Key Holder. As for discounts, as long as your Magic Key Pass has been activated, you may use it to receive the food, beverage, and merchandise discounts when applicable (see the exclusions and restrictions on the Disneyland Resort Magic Key Discounts webpage for the full terms and conditions. 

    For parking, it depends on the Key you purchase. The Dream Key pass includes standard theme park parking and "will be activated when the Dream Key Holder uses their included theme park parking benefit for the first time, or uses the pass to enter a theme park for the first time. For all other Magic Key types, activation will occur upon use of the pass for first entry into a theme park." This handy chart provides a helpful visual for the benefits of the different Magic Key Pass options.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, Ginny! Have so much fun using your Magic Key to make magical memories this year.

    Wishing you much magic,
