    Hello, I just got 2 magic keys and was charged for the down payment and i saw another charge of the next month payment. Is that suppose to happen?

    A very warm welcome to you, Tiffany!

    Welcome to planDisney and let me be the first to congratulate you on scoring a highly coveted new Magic Key Pass! You're about to embark on a year of Magic where you can return to the Disneyland Resort as much as you'd like. Personally, I love all the benefits and discounts that my Magic Key gives me. I'm sure that thing has nearly paid for itself!

    Having the option to make monthly payments towards a Magic Key Pass is a feature offered only to California Residents. You were charged correctly for your Passes because, as stated in the Magic Key Payment Contract, "if you are making a down payment, then you will pay two amounts today: (i) your down payment and (ii) your first monthly payment." Thankfully, things get more predictable from there and you can anticipate 11 more monthly payments on or around your payment date. If you'd like to see your contract, it was included in the Confirmation email you received from Disney after you purchased the Magic Keys.

    Now that you're a Magic Key Holder, set aside some time to visit the Magic Key Terrace in Disney California Adventure. It's a great place to relax and get away from the crowds to enjoy a light meal during the day. And be sure to check the Magic Key Portal in the Disneyland Mobile App whenever you visit. You never know what they're offering and I've gotten some of my favorite souvenirs that way. 

    Fun Fact: The term "Magic Key" dates back to when Disney used ticket books to redeem for attractions. The Magic Key Coupon allowed a Guest to use it on any attraction, A through E. 

    Tiffany, I hope that I answered your question and that you're having fun planning a year full of magical memories! If you need anything else, please come by again because we'd love to hear from you!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
