    Do you have to live in California to buy the magic key pass

    Natasha, welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. There's nothing quite like having an annual pass for The Happiest Place on Earth. It's one of the surest ways to guarantee a magical year.

    The annual Disneyland pass is called the Magic Key. This pass comes in four different tiers, namely, Inspire, Believe, Enchant, and Imagine, that vary in price. Basically, the higher the tier the greater the levels of perks. The lowest tier (i.e. Imagine Key) is only available for Southern California residents living in zip codes 90000 to 93599. However, if you live in a different state, you're more than welcome to purchase the Enchant, Believe, or Inspire passes.

    Magic Key holders can enjoy some pretty magical benefits, like early access to purchase special ticketed events, access to the exclusive Magic Key terrace, sweet discounts on participating locations at the Downtown Disney District, and even savings on Disneyland Resort hotel stays during certain times of the year. 

    But here's the thing, Natasha: Disney has currently paused all new sales of Magic Key passes. In an effort to protect the experience for current Magic Key holders and the value those passes provide, Disney only sells a limited amount of passes. Once they are snapped up, new sales are paused.

    Hopefully, it won't be long before they go back on sale. When that happens, we'll be notified by Disney. Disney Parks Blog may be the best place to keep an eye out for any exciting announcements. Once they go on sale again, visit the Magic Key Pass page on the Disneyland Resort website and you can make your purchase.

    I hope that's clarifying, Natasha. I appreciate you stopping by. Come and see us again.
