    Looking to buy the annual pass for my family. My son is 2 at the moment but will turn 3 before the year ends. Afraid that no passes will be for sale as the year continues, I was wondering if you would recommend getting him the pass or not?

    Hi there, Wilson!

    Welcome to planDisney, and a very merry birthday to your little one! Family time at The Happiest Place on Earth is truly one of my greatest joys, and I feel honored to help you arrange that for your family, too. I'm a huge fan of the character dining options at the resort—they not only serve up delicious bites but also let you meet a bunch of characters all in one go! And the complimentary Disney PhotoPass opportunities that come with your meal are an added bonus!

    So here's the scoop on adding the littlest Mouseketeers to the Magic Key Program: All Magic Key sales will reopen on January 10th. So, if Magic Keys are still available on the day of your next visit, you can purchase one for your little prince right there on the spot. 

    But Wilson, since he won't technically need one until the end of the year, I want you to be reassured about the Keys selling out. If you're already a Magic Key holder, when your youngling turns three, you won't have to wait for the Keys to go on sale again. Even when they're sold out to the general public, if a child's family are active Magic Key holders, you can make a visit to one of the ticket booths at the main entrance (and make sure to bring your little guy along) and bring either his original birth certificate or passport for verification. 

    Even if sales for all Magic Key passes are put on hold at that time and are only open for renewal, you being a Magic Key holder already and having a three-year-old means you can still get a Magic Key for him within 60 days of her birthday.

    I hope this information helps you plan a magical birthday for your little prince, Wilson! If you have any more questions or need further assistance, don't hesitate to reach out again. I'd love to share my favorite tips for visiting the Disneyland Resort!

    A very merry unbirthday to you!
