    Can I purchase a magic key pass at the gate at Disneyland? If so, are the same magic key tiers that are offered online available at the gate?

    Hello there, Melissa!

    Like the fan-favorite "Magic Happens" Parade that recently returned to Disneyland Park, magic happens when you decide to purchase a Magic Key Pass! As a Key holder, you'll unlock the excitement and wonder of Disneyland Resort visit after visit, and likely make countless treasured memories in the process.

    At this time, new Magic Key sales are available for online purchase. I reached out to a Cast Member to see whether you might be able to purchase one at the Main Entrance Ticket Booth, and though some guests have been successful, I wouldn't advise waiting to purchase in person. Magic Key passes have previously sold out without warning so I'd hate for you to plan an in-person visit only to discover sales have been paused. Park reservations are also required in addition to valid admission for each day you plan to visit the parks, so you'd want to be sure you have a reservation in place prior to your arrival.

    As I'm writing, the Inspire Key is the only pass currently available for purchase. This particular Key will allow you to hold up to 6 theme park reservations at a time as well as offer valuable discounts on select dining, merchandise, and even the purchase of Genie+.  If you are considering purchasing an Inspire Key be sure to review the terms and conditions prior to purchase as they are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

    Once you're the proud owner of a Magic Key make plans to enjoy a snack or cocktail at Magic Key Terrace, a dining experience reserved exclusively for Key holders and their guests. When it's time to renew the fun for another year, renewals for existing passes may be done online up to 30 days before the pass expiration date.

    Stop back and see us again with any other planning questions. We'd love to help you make the most of each visit to Disneyland Resort!

    Wishing you magic and memories,
