    My daughter lost her wallet and we are planning on going to DCA soon. We are magic key holders and will be using our passes for the first time. Does she need to bring her actual ID or will a photo of it be fine to prove who she is?

    Hello, Melissa!

    Welcome to planDisney! Losing your wallet is very stressful! As a teenager, I lost my wallet at Disneyland Resort, and I was beside myself with worry. Fortunately, a kind person turned my wallet into Guest Services after I left the parks and it was mailed back to me!

    Magic Key holders who have a pass that is only available for Southern California residents must show a valid government-issued ID to enter the theme parks. A photo of an ID would not meet this requirement, unfortunately. For other types of Magic Key passes, the Cast Members may still ask for a valid government-issued ID for adults, so I would encourage your daughter to get her ID before entering the parks. When you arrive at the parks with your new Magic Key passes, a Cast Member will take your photos to associate with each pass. Then you are ready to begin your first magical day as a Magic Key holder!

    As a reminder, make sure to review the Magic Key No-Show Policy to avoid running into any issues with your pass. If you have park reservations but your plans change, just cancel before 11:59 PM Pacific Time the day before your scheduled visit to steer clear of any no-show "strikes". According to the policy, "Magic Key holders who are a no-show for 3 reservations in any 90-day window will be unable to make new park reservations or modify existing park reservations for 30 days." We don't want that to happen!

    One way to celebrate your new Magic Key is to make dining reservations at Magic Key terrace, a special dining lounge created just for Magic Key holders and their guests (for a total of 4 Guests per party). During a recent visit, I enjoyed the Bountiful Valley Charcuterie and the Silly Symphonies Churro Sandwich (so good!). 

    Melissa, thanks again for contacting us at planDisney, and welcome to the Magic Key family! We hope to see you real soon!
