    Robyn from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Just purchased an Imagine key because it was only thing available. How soon may I upgrade to Inspire key? Any chance that happens anytime soon? How would I know when I can? Thanks.

    Hi there, Robyn! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Welcome to the world of Magic Key holder! I hope that you enjoy regular trips to The Happiest Place on Earth as much as I do. Make sure to check out the Magic Key holder offerings throughout the year, including occasional Magic Key Disney PhotoPass opportunities, discounts at select merchandise and dining locations, access to Magic Key Terrace, and more!

    Robyn, I wish there were more positive news for you, but since new sales of Magic Key passes are currently paused, it also means that an upgrade to a different pass is not possible at this time. Per the Disneyland website: "At this time, current Magic Key holders may have the opportunity during their renewal window (currently up to 30 days prior to the pass expiration date) to renew into a pass made available within the program."

    This means that you will need to wait until your 30 day renewal window or until Magic Keys go back on sale, whichever is first, to upgrade to the Inspire Key. The best bet is to keep an eye on the Disneyland Website and Disneyland social media for news on future Magic Key sales. 

    When you do hit that 30-day renewal window prior to your pass expiration date, you can upgrade using the Disneyland Mobile App or online, pending pass type availability. I know that you just purchased your Magic Key and may still be anticipating your first visit as a Key holder. However, if you ever need to check the date that your pass expires, use the "Tickets and Passes" section in the Disneyland Mobile App. The expiration date will be right under the pass barcode.

    Robyn, I hope this information helps. Please visit us again at planDisney if you have any more questions.

    Best wishes,
