    Hello, I purchased a Disney package before the Inspire Key pass was available for purchase again. Is there anyway we can convert our 3day hopper passes and apply it to a purchase of the Inspire key?

    Hiya, Briana!

    I bet you're excited about your upcoming visit to The Happiest Place on Earth! Since you are interested in joining the Disneyland Resort Magic Key holder family, it seems you will be extending the magic even more.

    Yes, theme park tickets that come bundled with a Disneyland Resort Vacation Package are upgradeable. To upgrade your theme park tickets to a Magic Key pass follow these steps.

    1. Activate your ticket by using it to enter one of the theme parks.
    2. Decide when you want to upgrade to a Magic Key pass. First check that the level of Magic Key pass you wish to purchase is still available for new sales. Your original ticket's theme park reservations will be canceled during the upgrade. So check the Magic Key Access Calendar to make sure any remaining days of your vacation are still available for the pass type you wish to purchase. To ensure continuous access during your vacation, you may wish to wait until the end of your last day to upgrade. Be sure to upgrade before midnight of the last day your ticket is valid.
    3. Visit the "Tickets and Passes" screen of the Disneyland mobile app, find the ticket you wish to upgrade, and tap "Upgrade to a Magic Key Pass."
    4. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the transaction.
    5. Book your next park reservation with your new Magic Key pass!

    Some things to keep in mind:

    • The expiration date of the new pass will be one year from the first day the original ticket was used.
    • Tickets are non-transferable once they are used. Only the person who used the original ticket may use the new Magic Key pass.
    • The new pass must be of equal or greater value than the amount paid for the original ticket.
    • If you are a California resident and wish to take advantage of the monthly payment plan for Magic Key passes, make sure your current eligible address is listed in your Disneyland Resort account and that it matches the billing address of the payment method being used. You will only see the monthly payment plan offered if your account is updated with a valid address.
    • Only one ticket may have its original value applied toward the upgrade of only one Magic Key pass.
    • The number of Magic Key passes for sale is limited in number. Not all pass types may be available at any given time.

    I have been an Inspire Key Pass holder since they first went on sale. I love the many benefits available to Magic Key holders. Of course, the discounts are my favorite. But I love some of the less-common things too, like the ability to book a visit to the Magic Key Terrace. (We love their Bountiful Valley Charcuterie!) To stay up-to-date with the latest Magic Key offerings and events, keep an eye on the Magic Key Portal in the Disneyland mobile app and follow the official Disneyland Resort Magic Key accounts on your favorite social media platforms.

    I hope you have a magical time on your Disneyland Resort vacation, Briana. Please stop by planDisney again if you have any more questions about visiting the Disneyland Resort or using your new Magic Key pass.
