    What's the difference between an Annual Pass and an Inspire Key. I have Inspire Key and I go to Disneyland weekly - it's so great -- and I am looking for various ways of getting to ride rides without waiting in long lines

    Hi there, Claranne, we’re so glad you’re here!

    Fellow Inspire Magic Key pass holder here and I’m excited to welcome you to planDisney! I love the flexibility of visiting the Happiest Place on Earth as often as I can when my pass is open and reservations are available. 

    The Magic Key pass program has replaced the former Annual Pass program at the Disneyland Resort. There are benefit differences now and there is no longer a 365-day open pass at Disneyland Resort. The Inspire Key is currently the highest tier available. As a Magic Key pass holder, you have benefits that include a discount on Disney Genie+ (renamed to Lightning Lane Multi Pass effective 7/24/24). Make sure to check out all the benefits on the special Magic Key portal in the Disneyland app or on the website. Disney Genie+/Lightning Lane Multi Pass is an additional paid fee that grants you the ability to book return times for certain attractions, based on availability. Using the Disneyland app you can check your tip board and answer some questions about preferences on attractions and experiences and it will populate an agenda with recommendations on planning your day! 

    I love that you’re able to visit the parks so often, it really is an amazing privilege to be able to experience magic like that! Summer is in full swing at Disneyland Resort and we have another month of Pixar Fest (through August 4), celebrating friendship and beyond with our favorite Pixar characters at both parks! I have enjoyed my time dancing with family while we watch Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration and of course tasting our way around Disney California Adventure Park. Make sure you are following Disneyland Magic Key on Instagram for updates and fun news just for Magic Key pass holders!

    Well, Claranne, I wish you the most magical weekend! Hope you get to experience some new things on your next visit! If you have any other questions, feel free to message me directly, I’d love to help!

    Magic awaits!
