    I have a friend who would like to purchase an enchant key pass for Disneyland but they want to do it the day of at the booth so they can use a gift card is that possible and will they be allowed access the day of purchase?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Art,

    You’ve got a friend in me” too! That is because what you are asking about is exactly like what I have done. The most convenient method of purchasing a Disneyland Resort Magic Key is to tap the “Buy Passes” button of the “Tickets and Passes” screen of the Disneyland app. As you may have discovered, the in-app purchase system of the app does not currently accept Disney Gift Cards. Guests who wish to purchase their new Magic Key with a Disney Gift Card may do so from the “Magic Key Passes” page of the Disneyland Resort website.

    If by chance, your friend plans on upgrading a theme park ticket to a Magic Key, the most straightforward method again is to use the Disneyland app. The “Upgrade to a Magic Key Pass” button shows up in the Tickets and Passes screen for the ticket. Here again, the app does not currently support payment for Magic Keys using a Disney Gift Card. Upgrading a theme park ticket to a Magic Key using a gift card is one of the select few reasons that a Guest will need to visit a Main Entrance Ticket Booth. In such cases, Guests purchasing a Magic Key at a ticket booth should take a photo ID.

    Tony’s Tip: When purchasing a new Magic Key, be sure that theme park reservations may be made for the new pass. If the Magic Key Access Calendar shows park reservation availability, you’re good to proceed with making those reservations once the Magic Key is purchased.

    Your friend is joining the Magic Key holder family at just the right time. That is because February is Magic Key Holder Celebration Month. Enjoy giveaways, special food and beverages for purchase, and even exclusive merchandise. There are even special activities to enjoy from home. My family and I are excited to participate in as much of it as possible!

    Thanks for your question, Art. Here at planDisney, we are Guests just like you. Many of us are even Magic Key holders as well. We are happy to be able to help out fellow Magic Key holders as we enjoy the magic of the Disneyland Resort together.
