    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? or do i need to pay again in full for that day i enter the park?

    Hiya, Dennis!

    Welcome to planDisney! Isn't it great to have Magic Key passes for sale again? There are still three pass types available at the moment, but I don't want you to wait too long and miss the magic...so let's get your question answered!

    According to the Magic Key Terms and Conditions, when you purchase a pass you have up to one year to activate it. Your key is activated by one of two actions:

    • Using your pass to enter one of the Disneyland Resort theme parks
    • Using your pass to enter one of the Disneyland Resort parking areas, which is included with select passes
    That means you can make theme park reservations in anticipation of your first visit, but your pass will not be active until you enter the parks or the parking lot.

    Having a Magic Key also unlocks some fun benefits and discounts across the resort! You can make reservations to visit Magic Key Terrace, where they're currently serving light bites and a churro sandwich for dessert that looks incredible. I would also recommend following the Magic Key Instagram Account for park updates, fun giveaways, and more!

    I hope you'll find a Magic Key that is the perfect fit for you, Dennis! 

    Keep moving forward!
