    Hi! We have magic key passes, but would like to purchase regular park tickets for one of the days that is blocked off to magic key holders. Can I apply the regular park tickets to upgrade my key?

    Hi Brooke! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    It sounds like you've enjoyed your year of more access to the magic, discounts, and perks so much that you want to have even more time in the parks. I totally get it! I love being a Magic Key holder as well, but you have to find the right fit. Each Magic Key has its specific benefits and terms to review. Magic Key terms and prices are subject to change, so read those details carefully before committing to an upgrade.

    You can upgrade a valid eligible admission ticket towards the purchase of any available Magic Key of greater value by paying for the difference. You also can upgrade an existing Magic Key to another available Magic Key by paying the difference. But you can't apply your admission ticket towards the upgrade of an existing Magic Key. Instead, I can walk you through how to upgrade your existing Magic Key, so you hopefully can enjoy a Magic Key that better suits your needs, including those all-important Blockout dates. Maybe with that shiny new upgrade, you can make a theme park reservation for your preferred park date! Upgrades and theme park reservations are subject to availability.

    When sales opened up again on Magic Keys, Disneyland Resort released a helpful Buying Guide for Magic Keys, and it's still really useful. Feel free to give it a quick read-over before heading to the parks to snag your upgraded Magic Key. A few important things to note. Magic Keys can be upgraded for the remainder of their year of use. If you choose to upgrade, you have to pay the difference in full, and your original expiration date will remain the same as before the upgrade. You must complete your upgrade at the main ticket booths at Disneyland Resort. Have your method of payment ready. Credit and debit cards are accepted. Disney Gift Cards are another awesome way to pay for the upgrade too! It's a great reason to request them around the holidays. Give some hints to friends and family.

    I hope you get your new Magic Key upgrade for even more time to explore the parks. Of course, if you just want access to the parks on a day when you're blocked out, you're free to purchase a 1-day ticket for that day's tier. Right now you'll enjoy Season of the Force and Pixar Fest, so there are plenty of reasons to head over.

    Have a magical day!
