    Hiiiii, we were looking to get the socal 3 day hopper ticket. We were wondering if that would be used towards a magic key pass. Our last day we chose was September 11th and we’re wondering if that’s when we would have to buy the pass with that towards it.

    Hey, howdy, hey, Aaliyah!

    Yeehaw! I’d say that upgrading your theme park ticket to a Disneyland Resort Magic Key pass is a sure way toward a rootin', tootin' time!

    To upgrade an eligible Disneyland Resort theme park ticket to an available Magic Key pass, use the Disneyland mobile app. First, you must activate your ticket. That’s easy to do: just use the ticket to visit a park where you already have a theme park reservation! Then open the “Tickets and Passes” screen of the app and tap the “Upgrade to a Magic Key Pass” button to continue with your upgrade. The upgrade must be completed while the current ticket is still valid. As long as you upgrade before midnight on the last valid day of the ticket, you will be ready to “ride like the wind” into a year’s worth of adventure!

    Here are a few things to keep in mind:

    • When upgrading a park ticket to a Magic Key pass, any existing theme park reservations linked to your original ticket will be canceled and you will need to rebook new reservations based on availability shown on the Magic Key Access Calendar for your new pass type. Because of this, you may wish to wait until you have a chance to use your existing park reservations first. Just be sure to upgrade your ticket before midnight on the last day of use or validity.
    • The same person who used the ticket must be the person assigned to use the new Magic Key pass.
    • The expiration date of the new pass will be one year from the first day of use of the original ticket. So if Magic Key park reservations are available for the dates you wish to visit, you may want to upgrade sooner than later so that you can begin to take advantage of Magic Key benefits and discounts.
    • The difference from the amount paid for the original ticket to the current-day price of the new Magic Key pass must be paid at the time of upgrade unless you are a California resident eligible for a monthly payment plan. Since you are upgrading a California resident promotional ticket, that must mean you are eligible! Just make sure your address is up-to-date in your account profile and that the billing address for your method of payment matches your address. The option for monthly payments will be available during the upgrade process and can’t be selected after completing an upgrade.

    I’m excited for you to join me as a fellow member of the Magic Key holder family, Aaliyah. If you haven’t been already, be sure to follow the official @DisneylandMagicKey accounts on your favorite social media platforms. There, you’ll find the latest offers and events you can enjoy as a new passholder!

    "So long, partner."
