    With Magic Key passes on hold, will I be able to buy tickets for my son's birthday next month and use those tickets to credit towards a Magic Key? Understanding that the pass would be backdated to the ticket date?

    Hi there, Michelle!

    Welcome to planDisney and a very merry unbirthday to your little one! What a treat to be able to spend this milestone together at The Happiest Place on Earth next month. Have you considered booking a special dining location to celebrate? I'm a huge fan of the character dining options—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!

    Now Michelle, I hate to bring you bad news, but since Magic Key sales are on pause, which means you won't be able to upgrade a regular admission ticket. You see, upgrades need to be done on-site before the resort closes for the day. However, here's the tea: Disneyland has promised that they'll be reopening Magic Key sales periodically throughout the year, as availability permits. So, if by some lucky twist of fate, Magic Keys are available on the day of your visit, you can upgrade right there on the spot.

    On the brighter side of things, if you're already a Magic Key holder, and your little Mouseketeer is turning three next month, you won't have to wait for the Keys to go on sale again. Instead, just give the Magic Key hotline a call, and they'll help you add him as a Keyholder in your household.

    I truly hope this information helps you plan a magical birthday for your little Prince, Michelle! 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 and tricks for visiting the Disneyland Resort!

    A very merry unbirthday to you,
