    What is a Disney Magic key

    A warm planDisney welcome to you, Jaci! Thank you so much for visiting us and for sharing this question. I'll be happy to share some insight with you as you learn more about the Disneyland Resort Magic Key Program!

    The Disneyland Resort Magic Key Program unlocks an entire year of magic for Guests, with reservation-based admission to the theme parks, discounts on dining and merchandise, discounted or complimentary parking benefits (depending on the pass type), and special offers and extras designed just for Magic Key Holders! In some circles, I've heard it referred to as an annual pass program, but it really is so much more than that! There are four different Pass types: Inspire Key, Believe Key, Enchant Key, and Imagine Key (available for Southern California Residents, only). I'd encourage you to check out each Pass type and compare the offerings. I also find the Magic Key Buying Guide to be a very helpful resource in considering a Magic Key purchase, while also covering the important information to prepare as you take the next step in becoming a Magic Key Holder. 

    Now, Jaci, all Guests including Magic Key Holders must have valid admission and a confirmed theme park reservation in order to visit the Disneyland Resort theme parks on any eligible date. I like to remind Guests of this, so that they are aware of the reservation-based system, even when they have access to a Magic Key Pass. The number of park reservations that you can hold at any one time is dependent on the Pass type you choose and is subject to availability and any applicable blockout dates. I know this is a lot of information all at once, Jaci, so I hope you'll feel welcome to reach out again if we can clarify anything. Many planDisney panelists have experience as a Magic Key Holder - including yours truly - so if we can lend our personal advice or any recommendations along the way, please don't hesitate to send us a follow-up question

    My last recommendation for now is to follow @DisneylandMagicKey on Instagram for more details and the latest special announcements and highlights about the Magic Key Program at Disneyland Resort. I think you'll really enjoy getting to hear all the latest information about this spectacular way to enjoy all the magic of 'The Happiest Place on Earth' throughout the whole year. 

    In the meantime, I'm wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
