    Hi, so im planning on buying a magic key pass for my daughter and myself. Does my daughter also have to be 18 or is it just the person purchasing them?

    Hi Maria, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    Your question brought a big smile to my face. You and your daughter are going to love being Magic Key Holders at Disneyland Resort, soaking in all the magic together. Whether you're sharing a churro, laughing together on Radiator Springs Racers, or posing for pictures together in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, you two are going to make so many memories. I love it!

    Your daughter does not have to be 18 to be a Magic Key Pass Holder. All Guests ages 3 and older must have valid admission (in the form of a theme park ticket or Magic Key Pass) and a Theme Park Reservation in order to visit Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. As long as you check both those boxes, you're ready to let the magic begin!

    Because Guests must be 13 or older to have their own account on the Disneyland mobile app, if your daughter is under 13 you'll need to do one of three things. You can add her Magic Key Pass to your app using the 18-digit code provided and then show her pass when entering the theme parks. You may also print her Theme Park Reservation at home and bring it with you. Or, if those options don't work, visit a Ticket Booth on your next visit date, provide your daughter's Magic Key ID number, and a Cast Member can print a paper ticket (though note there may be a fee for this option). 

    I hope you and your daughter enjoy your time together! Be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog together for news and planning tips to make your adventures together even more fun. My tween daughter follows all the Disney accounts on Instagram and loves keeping me up-to-date on the latest snacks and news, and I love that we share a love of all things Mickey! Enjoy it all, Maria, and please come back and see us if we can help with any more questions. 

    Wishing you much magic,
