    How much is the deposit for a Disney pass

    Greetings from a fellow Californian, Magali!

    I'm sure you are as excited as I am for the return of Magic Key sales on January 10, 2024. The sale will begin no earlier than 9 AM PST and you can join the waitlist no earlier than 8:45 AM PST that morning. 

    As you may already know, California residents are eligible to spread out the overall cost of their Magic Key pass into monthly installments. Historically, the down payment for a pass has been equal to the current price of a 1-Day, Tier 1 Park Hopper Ticket plus the first monthly payment of the remaining amount. You can use this math to estimate the deposit for the type of pass that you are interested in. 

    Before January 10, make sure that you have an active Disney account and that you review the Magic Key Buying Guide for important information on the Magic Key calendar and information needed (such as first and last name, date of birth, address, etc.) to buy a Magic Key. That way you will have the best possible buying experience!

    Wishing you many magical Disneyland trips, Magali!
