    I bought tickets can I apply it to annual pass and since I’m a So.. Cali resident can I sign up for the monthly payment plan

    Hiya, Steve!

    Oh boy! Congratulations on deciding to join the Magic Key holder family.

    The most straightforward way to upgrade a Disneyland Resort theme park ticket to a Magic Key pass is to use the Disneyland mobile app during your visit. Your ticket must still be valid in order to be upgraded. To check if your park ticket can be upgraded to a Magic Key pass, open the ☰ feature menu of the Disneyland app. From there, tap on Tickets and Passes to find your theme park ticket. If the ticket isn’t already linked in the app, tap the ‘+’ button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and then tap “Link Tickets & Passes” to begin the process of linking a valid ticket. If you see the “Upgrade to a Magic Key Pass” button below the ticket barcode and number, tap it to proceed with the upgrade.

    When you upgrade your ticket, you will verify your name and address and enter payment information. If you would like to take advantage of the monthly payment option available to California residents, make sure that your account is updated with your current address and that the billing address for the method of payment you use matches that address. 

    Note that if you would like to upgrade your ticket before you use it, you will need to visit a main entrance ticket booth. If you use the app to upgrade after you start using the ticket, be sure to request the upgrade before midnight of the last day of the ticket. Whether you upgrade your ticket before using it or after you have already started using it, any current theme park reservations will automatically be canceled. So you need to book another park reservation before you can use your new Magic Key pass to enter a theme park. Even if you are already inside a park when you upgrade, you will need to book a reservation if you plan to exit and re-enter a park. So I highly recommend checking the Magic Key Access Calendar before upgrading to make sure there are reservations available for your new pass type or perhaps wait until the end of your visit (but before midnight of the last day!) to complete the upgrade process.

    As a fellow Magic Key holder, I am thrilled to greet you as a new fellow passholder. I hope you enjoy the awesome perks, like dining discounts and merchandise discounts. And be sure to follow the official @DisneylandMagicKey accounts on your favorite social media platforms.

    I hope you have a magical time as you enjoy your new Magic Key pass, Steve!
