    Kerri Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We are coming frm Australia and with the reservations system I want to book soon to make sure we get tickets and the days we want. If by the time we come in October the Reversation system is removed, can we transfer the price of the tickets to Annual Pass?

    Hello again, Kerri, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    We're so happy to see you back again and very excited for your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort later this year! I hope your plans are coming together as the date draws closer and closer. 

    It's a good thing that you're thinking ahead in regards to purchasing tickets and the reservation system. Reservations are released 120 days in advance, so for your arrival, that date would be around July 3. Please note that you may purchase tickets at any time and that reservations can always be changed once your pertinent dates open up. Also, did you see the Disney Parks Blog announcement that Magic Key Passes would be made available more frequently throughout the year? That's exciting news for everyone, and hopefully means that you would still be able to purchase a Magic Key prior to your vacation!

    In reference to your question, you are able to upgrade your ticket and apply its value to the purchase of a Magic Key Pass if they are available at that time. Only one ticket may be applied for the upgrade, so you are unable to combine multiple tickets towards the cost of a Magic Key. You may do this within the Disneyland Mobile App by midnight on or before the last valid day of a multi-day ticket. Please note that when you upgrade, you will lose any existing reservations that were placed by your old tickets and they will not transfer over to the Magic Key. If I had a crystal ball, I would ask Madame Leota what the future of the reservation system would be, but Disney has not released any new information regarding its plans. 

    There's still plenty of time before your visit, so I hope things work out for you and that you can either upgrade or outright purchase a shiny new Magic Key for yourself at some point! Be sure to follow the official Magic Key Instagram page for breaking news on Magic Key sales. I personally love mine and have never had an issue booking a reservation. 

    You're going to be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth during my favorite season of them all, Halloween! I was able to attend Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure last year and it was an incredible party! And over at Disneyland Park, the Disney100 Celebration is in full swing, with the new nighttime spectacular Wondrous Journeys headlining the way. 

    Kerri, I hope you found this helpful and I wish you the best in your planning journey. If you would like any more tips or advice, feel free to return again anytime! We'd be happy to help!

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
