    If I buy a magic Key, will it be active from the date of purchase? The date of my first reservation? the date of my first park entry?

    Hello there, Joyce!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for coming to me with your question about Magic Keys. I myself have been a Magic Key Holder since the program's inception and I'm so glad that I joined when I did! It's provided so much joy by allowing me to visit the Disneyland Resort many times already this year and I love the discounts and benefits that it provides.

    Per the Magic Key Terms and Conditions, you have one year from the date of purchase to activate your brand new Magic Key. It is activated when used for first entry into a Disneyland Resort Theme Park or first use of a parking benefit for a fully-paid entry into a pay-on-entry lot at the Disneyland Resort. Your Magic Key will then be valid for one year from the date of activation and you'll have a year of Disney Magic to look forward to!

    At the time of this writing, the Inspire Key is the only Magic Key type available for new purchase. If you have your eye on either the Believe or Enchant Key, I would recommend following the official Magic Key Instagram account for the latest announcements on new sales. The Disney Parks Blog did announce earlier this year that Magic Keys would be available for new purchase more frequently throughout the year, so be ready to act! 

    One of my favorite benefits as a Magic Key Holder is the ability to make reservations at the Magic Key Terrace in Disney California Adventure. It's a wonderful spot overlooking the Park where you can take a break and enjoy a delicious snack or a signature cocktail. In fact, I think their House-made Churros are the best churros in the Park! And be sure to check out the Magic Key Portal within the Disneyland Mobile App for any exclusive specials that are being offered. I've picked up some of my favorite souvenirs that way!

    I hope this answer was helpful for you, Joyce, and that you can join us soon as a fellow Magic Key Holder! If you have any further questions for us at planDisney, please reach out again anytime!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
