    I’m a magic key holder and may be in town and may stop by the parks last minute. Can I make a reservation just incase? If I don’t make it, is there any penalty? Will this effect future reservations already made at a later date?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Adam! Welcome to planDisney. As a fellow Magic Key Holder, I’m so excited you stopped by with your question! 

    An impromptu visit to the Happiest Place on Earth can be so exciting! But, as a Magic Key Holder, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the theme park reservation cancellation policy, to avoid an impact to your ability to make future reservations. If you scroll to the bottom of the Magic Key page, you’ll see the detailed rules which note that if Magic Key Holders have three “no shows” within a 90-day window, they cannot make new park reservations for 30 days. Existing park reservations will not be cancelled. The good news is, the cancellation window is pretty flexible - you can cancel a theme park reservation up to 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the day before your reserved date. By the way, this is exactly why it’s a good idea to keep searching the theme park reservation availability calendar in case you don’t see your desired date(s) available – as Guests’ plans can change just the day before arrival, reservations can magically pop up as available! 

    Adam, have you let Genie out of the lamp recently to see what he can do with Disney Genie+? This is no ordinary lamp! With Disney Genie+ my family and I saved hours of time waiting in queues by using the Lightning Lanes. You can add Disney Genie+ to your day via the Disneyland mobile app after you enter the theme park. I am glad we used one of our three wishes for this.

    Have a magically amazing visit, Adam! Stop by and see us again if you have more questions. See ya real soon,
