    When I purchase an annual pass for Disneyland/California Disney, does my start date for the year begin when I purchase or the day I use it and enter the park ?

    Hi there, Gregory!

    Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for dropping by with your question for us. I’m delighted to see you’re planning on becoming a Magic Keyholder. I recently took the plunge and bought passes for my family and me. Because of the pandemic, it’s been too long since we were able to take frequent trips to the Happiest Place on Earth. With the new Magic Key pass, you’ll be able to take more trips and create new memories at the Disneyland Resort. Oh and don’t forget, you’ll also be able to take advantage of discounts at select merchandise and dining locations as well.

    Gregory, your Magic Key is activated upon its first use. For a Dream Key, which includes standard theme park parking, it is activated when you use the parking benefit for the first time, or when you use the pass to enter the theme park for the first time. If you purchase any other Magic Key, it is activated the first time you use the pass to enter the theme park. Once activated, it will expire one year after its first use. If you don’t activate the Magic Key, it will expire one year from the purchase date.

    I hope this information is helpful for you. As you continue to plan many more trips to the Happiest Place on Earth, please don’t hesitate to visit us again if you have additional questions. We’re all EARS!

    See ya real soon,

Greetings from Northern California!

I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
