    Does the down payment for a magic key pass go towards the amount owed for the pass itself or is it a separate cost?

    Hello there, Michelle! Thank you for your question!

    Are you as excited as I am for Magic Keys to go on sale? Beginning no earlier than 9 AM PST on January 10, all four Magic Keys will be on sale once more. I encourage you to look at the Magic Key Buying Guide prior to Wednesday for important informationon on the Magic Key calendar and information needed (such as first and last name, date of birth, address, etc.) to buy a Magic Key. You will also want to make sure that you have a Disney account setup, as you need one to purchase a Magic Key. 

    One of the perks of being a California resident is that we're able to do a monthly payment option on a Magic Key purchase. Yes - the initial down payment for a Magic Key goes toward the overall cost of the pass! Usually, 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. Using this information, you can estimate the deposit for the type of pass that you are interested in! 

    The ability to visit the Disneyland Resort multiple times over the course of a year is one of my favorite things about being a Magic Key Pass holder. It allows me to experience the resort during different seasons and for different special events. The Disney Parks Blog is one of my favorite places to go to find out about the upcoming goings-on at Disneyland. Did you know that they just released all of the 2024 event dates?! There is so much to be excited for!

    Michelle, thank you so much for visiting us here at planDisney. We hope that you come back to visit us again soon!
