    How long are magic key passes allowed to be held prior to activating? We got our for Christmas but life has thrown a wrench in traveling until next year. Will we still be ok to activate that far away?

    Hi Karmen, and thank you for your Magic Key question!

    I had a similar situation to yours when I bought my family Magic Keys for Christmas last year. We waited approximately four months before activating our Believe Magic Keys. Although it was so hard to wait, it was completely worth it.

    The magic words to remember related to the Magic Key is “one year.” You will have up to one year after the date of purchase of your Magic Key to activate it (i.e., scan your Magic Key at a Disneyland Park theme park for the first time). Once activated, you will have one year from the date of activation to enjoy the perks and privileges of the Magic Key program. Note, if the Magic Key remains not activated one year after purchase, it will expire, and you will need to call a Cast Member to see what options may be available.

    I hope you and your loved ones enjoy the Magic Key program as much as my son and I do. Shopping at Disney is always fun for us, so we really love getting discounts in select shops at Disneyland Resort. A personal favorite of mine is the Fortuosity Shop on Main Street, U.S.A. I hope you get a chance to go shopping at one of your favorite shops too!

    Best wishes,
