    I purchased a 3 day SoCal ticket and used 2 out of 3 days. On my Disney app it says I can upgrade to a magic key. If I upgrade today, and make my 1st reservation, would my magic key expire on the first day I make my first reservation?

    Hi there, Caitlin! 

    I’m glad you found planDisney and asked us your question about theme park ticket upgrades. I hope the two Disneyland Resort visits you enjoyed with your Southern California resident ticket were perfectly pixie-dusted! 

    Yes, eligible Disneyland Resort theme park tickets may be upgraded to an available Magic Key pass via the Disneyland mobile app. As of this moment, all but one of the Magic Key pass types are available for purchase! You can upgrade your partially-used ticket to an Inspire Key, Believe Key, or Enchant Key.

    If you do decide to purchase a Magic Key, the upgrade amount (the total difference in price between your ticket and your chosen pass type) must be paid in full at that time. Your Magic Key pass will be backdated to begin on the first day that the theme park ticket was used, and your expiration date will be one year from then. Please keep in mind that you must upgrade on or before the last valid day for the ticket.

    I hope this answers your question, Caitlin, but if you need more clarification, please don’t hesitate to write back. Be sure to check out the Magic Key pass discounts to see how you can make the most of all the benefits available to pass holders during their year of memory-making at the Disneyland Resort!

    Wishing you magic,
