    Hello, in the past I remember being able to use the initial first visit on any day even blackout days of a new pass as long as it’s your first visit. How can I do this with my pass since there is the reservation system that doesn’t allow me do to so?

    Hi there, Robert!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and welcome back to the Magic Key family! There are so many things that I love about being a Magic Key holder - the discounts on select merchandise and dining, access to Magic Key Terrace, and most importantly, being able to spend more time at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Magic Keys passes can only be used on "good-to-go" days for your specific Magic Key, which can be found on the Park Reservation Availability Calendar. Unfortunately, this means that you will not be able to use your pass on a blockout date. I'm so sorry! If you do decide to purchase a theme park ticket on a blockout date, the good news is that you can usually still access any relevant Magic Key discounts or experiences available that day.

    I recommend making dining reservations for Magic Key Terrace to celebrate becoming a Magic Key holder! My family likes to order a few different items to share, such as the San Fransokyo Short Rib, the Bountiful Valley Charcuterie, and the Silly Symphonies Churro Sandwich (although, you may not want to share that one!). 

    Robert, I know this wasn't quite the news you were hoping for, but I do hope that you can find plenty of days this year to use your Magic Key pass! With many special events happening in 2024, it's a great year to be a Magic Key holder!
