    My husband and I just renewed our pass and we plan to head to the park tomorrow to add our son who just turned three and get him a pass. Is it possible at the booth to make a larger down payment to lower the monthly payments?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Sarah!

    Thanks for visiting us at planDisney. As a fellow Disneyland Resort Magic Key holder myself, it’s an honor to share my thoughts with members of the Magic Key family.

    In some cases, eligible California Residents may pay additional down payment money toward the purchase of a new Magic Key at a main entrance ticket booth. The remaining balance would then be divided evenly for the monthly payments. California residents who renew an existing Magic Key may choose to pay for the renewed pass with monthly payments as well. A down payment is not required for Magic Key renewals and is not an available option when renewing online.

    Because the payment plan is at a 0% interest rate, the total amount paid at the end of the plan will be the same as if purchasing the pass with a single up-front payment. Although there is no net financial benefit to paying a larger down payment, you could set aside the extra funds you currently have and use that money to “pay” yourself each month as you make payments toward your passes. That would effectively lower the amount you would need to pay each month. And if the money you set aside is accumulating interest in a bank account, you would even be able to earn a little extra churro money as well!

    Tony’s Tip: If you haven’t already, I recommend following the official Disneyland Resort Magic Key accounts on your favorite social media platforms. There, you’ll find the latest news and offers, including limited-time Disney PhotoPass Magic Shots, discounts, and exclusive Magic Key merchandise.

    Have a magical year, Sarah!
