    Can I use a Disney gift card to upgrade my SoCal multi-day ticket to a Magic Key at the ticket booth?

    Hi Kathy! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    I love that you're looking into enjoying even more of the magic of a Disneyland Resort day by securing a Magic Key. I have loved having my Magic Key over the past year. With more days in the park, perks, and great discounts, it's a great value for me, and I'm looking forward to renewing soon. I think you'll really love yours too.

    It is possible to upgrade a SoCal Special Ticket Offer to a Magic Key, however, the Magic Key must currently be available for purchase. I checked, and at this time it appears all Magic Keys except the Imagine Key, which is eligible for Guests in certain ZIP Codes, are available. Availability can change quickly, as Magic Keys are popular and can sell out. Prices and terms are subject to change. Be sure you take a look at the Blockout dates for each Magic Key. It's one of the important details to be familiar with when selecting the right Magic Key for your needs.

    A partially used SoCal Ticket must be upgraded by its last day of valid use before midnight. You should be able to complete this upgrade on the Disneyland mobile app or in person at the main ticket booths. According to the buying guide, you can use a Disney Gift Card. I hope that's good news! You'll need to pay in full and combine your cards in advance since only one card can be used per transaction. You'll pay the difference.

    Good luck getting your Magic Key! Follow the official Disneyland Magic Key blog after you get your new pass. It's got great information about exclusives, complimentary Magic Key items, and more. I always check it out before a trip to the parks, so I'm up to date on what to explore.

    Have a magical day.
