    If I buy 3 1-Day tickets to Disneyland for September, how can I upgrade them to the Magic keys while still keeping my reservation?

    Hello, Laura! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your Magic Key question!

    When it comes to upgrading tickets to a Magic Key, there are a few things of which you should be aware. First, only one ticket can be used to upgrade to one Magic Key. So, with three separate one-day tickets, you would only be able to apply the cost of one of them toward your new Magic Key. If you were to purchase one three-day ticket instead, you could apply the cost of that whole ticket toward a purchase of a Magic Key.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that the theme park reservation associated with the ticket you use to upgrade will be canceled. After you upgrade, you will use a calendar specific to Magic Key holders to make theme park reservations up to 90 days in advance.

    Since it sounds like you haven't purchased your tickets yet, I would suggest that you go ahead and purchase your Magic Key without worrying about any ticket upgrades. Then you can make your theme park reservations with your new Magic Key and enjoy your time in September with all your Magic Key holder perks. If you have already purchased your tickets, then you will want to wait until your last day in the parks to upgrade. This will allow you to keep the reservations you already have in place. You would enjoy your three days at the parks in September and then at the end of your last day (before the parks close), upgrade your ticket to a Magic Key in the Disneyland app

    I hope this makes sense. Have a wonderful time enjoying the Disneyland Resort for a whole year with your Magic Key!
