    I’m renewing my pass. I was told I could use my gift card and then enter my credit card. I do not see that option online. Do I need to do it over the phone?

    Hiya, Erin! Thanks for stopping by!

    What an exciting time for you! As a Magic Key Holder, you're able to experience the Disneyland Resort from an entirely different perspective, one that includes exclusive discounts and extras! Be sure to take advantage of these discounts as much as possible during your visits. You'll never regret the money you save, plus it gives you a little extra cash to spend on tasty snacks and new merchandise! Ka-Chow!

    Erin, you can use a Disney Gift Card toward a Magic Key Pass renewal. However, the process of doing so proves to be a little tricky, as you've already discovered! There are two ways you can apply your Disney Gift Card towards another 12 months of magic. First, you could call a Cast Member at the Magic Key Holders Line to make your payment over the phone. This will be nothing new for these knowledgeable, magical helpers and it should be a breeze! If you have an upcoming visit scheduled to the Disneyland Resort, you could also renew your Magic Key in person at one of the Ticket Booths. Again, this should be a short pitstop on a day filled with excitement, so you won't have to worry about spending too much time renewing your Magic Key at the booth.

    Your last option is to simply make your payment online using your saved payment method and save the Disney Gift Card for your next visit to The Happiest Place on Earth. Renewing your Magic Key Pass is cause for celebration, right? Maybe a nice dinner to celebrate another year of Disney Magic or a new spirit jersey to add a little extra pixie dust to your visit!

    I hope this helps answer your question today, Erin! Whichever path you choose, I hope you enjoy your Magic Key Pass for another year with everyone's favorite mouse!

    Have a magical day,
