    If I'm buying a new (not renewal) magic key pass, where do I go/who do I talk to in order to make a larger downpayment?

    Welcome, Jemilah! I'm so pleased that you chose to bring us your question and on behalf of all of us here at planDisney, thank you for trusting us to share some helpful advice with you!

    Isn't exciting that Guests currently have the opportunity to purchase available Magic Key Passes at Disneyland Resort? So many of us have been waiting for this chance, so I don't blame you for wanting to get all the details sorted! As you mentioned, California Residents do have the option to make their Magic Key purchase using a monthly payment plan, which requires an initial down payment. As I understand it, the down payment is typically set at the amount equivalent to a 1-Day, Tier 1 Park Hopper Ticket, plus the first monthly payment toward the remaining balance. Monthly payments are then billed on the same credit card that was used for the initial payment. However, Guests can also call the dedicated Magic Key Holder line at any time to make additional payments toward the purchase balance. I would recommend calling to speak with a Cast Member about this and inquiring if a larger initial down payment is possible. 

    Jemilah, I also want to leave you with a copy of the Magic Key Buying Guide, as this has been a very helpful resource with things to keep in mind during the purchase process and as you begin to use your Magic Key Pass for entry to the theme parks and other exclusive Magic Key Holder benefits. 

    I hope this is useful as you continue planning to make your Magic Key purchase! Please don't hesitate to come back to planDisney if we can help with anything else or share our personal recommendations for making the most of your Pass. We'd love to help!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
