    I'm trying to renew my annual pass, last year I paid it with disney gift cards and I'm trying to do the same this year but its not giving me the option to input my gift cards. How can I pay it with my Disney gift cards??

    Hiya, Elena!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy that you found us hEAR!

    Oh Boy! I'm so glad that you had the Best! yEAR! Ever! as a member of the coolest club in the Kingdom, the Disneyland Resort Magic Key program! Be sure that you're following the official Disneyland Magic Key Instagram account so you'll never miss out on a member-exclusive photo opportunity, magical giveaway, or limited-edition keyholder merchandise!

    You are not the only Mouseketeer who's had a bit of trouble with this type of transaction this yEAR. Disney Gift Cards are really swell in that they can be spent almost everywhere (Disneyland, Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line Aluani) and on almost anything. (Food, souvenEARs, Disneyland Resort Hotel stays, etc.) For some reason just not to online Magic Key Renewals. (Pretend I added that emoji of the person shrugging right hEAR.) 

    To apply the balance of this Mickey money to your Disneyland Magic Key renewal, your best bet will be to call the Disneyland Resort Magic Key Helpline at (714) 781-7277. Ticket Booth Cast Members in The Esplanade would also love to assist with your in-person gift card renewal. One last idea is if you're on a monthly payment plan, you can even have the first renewal month draft to your stored payment card now, and then later when you visit in person, you can apply your DisneyGift Cards to your balance owed; this would also involve you stopping by the ticket booths, but it might be your best solution to get your renewal taken care of today without having to sit on hold on the phone.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Elena, for yEAR two of magic key fun! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort Magic Key or general planning questions, We're All Ears!
