    I currently have an Inspire Magic Key but a date I want to reserve is unavailable (not blocked off). I guess just fully booked for pass holders. If I buy a one-day park hopper for that day, can the price paid for that tix apply to my monthly pass payments?

    Hi Ladeanne,

    Thanks for bringing us your question today. We're always glad to have guests put our service to the test.

    I took a quick look at the Magic Key Calendar and noticed that there are currently no Inspire Key reservations available for the Sunday in question. As indicated in the terms & conditions, park reservations for popular dates like weekends and holidays may be difficult to come by. I wish I could sprinkle a bit of pixie dust for you, but unfortunately, your best bet is to just keep checking to see if a reservation opens up. Guest plans change all the time and you may see availability appear even up to the night before since Magic Key holders must cancel an existing reservation by midnight the day prior to their visit to avoid a no-show penalty.

    If you have your heart set on visiting on that particular day, you can purchase a 1-day Park Hopper ticket but the amount paid cannot be applied to your Magic Key balance or monthly payment plan. That 1-day ticket would be a separate purchase, much like a special event ticket, and would have no bearing on your Magic Key payments. 

    I know this is not the news you hoped to hear today but I encourage you to keep checking for new reservation availability as your preferred date nears. At the time of my writing, both parks show availability the day prior, so you might want to consider shifting your visit from Sunday to Saturday if your schedule allows. 

    Ladeanne, if we can answer any other questions please feel free to reach out to us again. You are also welcome to speak with a Cast Member by phone with additional questions or concerns.

    Wishing you a magical day,
