    I purchased a key pass using a credit card but wanted to do the monthly payment option, is it possible to change that?

    Hello Henry!

    Welcome to planDisney, and congratulations on purchasing a Magic Key! Being a Magic Key holder gives you access to discounts, special experiences, and most importantly, the ability to visit Disneyland Resort many times throughout the year! When I first became a Magic Key holder, I made celebratory reservations at Magic Key Terrace, an exclusive dining lounge created just for Magic Key holders and their Guests. The Bountiful Valley Charcuterie and Silly Symphonies Churro Sandwich are superb mid-day snacks!

    It sounds like you paid your new Magic Key in full on a credit card. I'm sad to relate that you cannot switch to the Southern California resident monthly payment option in that situation. I wish I had better news! If you have a birthday or other milestone coming up, I wonder if you could ask your family to contribute to your Magic Key costs as their gift. Disney Gift Cards are also one of my favorite presents to receive! You could use them in the theme parks to purchase food and merchandise, reducing costs while you are visiting Disneyland.

    If you haven't done so already, I suggest downloading the Disneyland mobile app. I use it constantly in the parks to view wait times, make Disney Genie+ reservations, and mobile order food, like Mickey-shaped Beignets from Mint Julep Bar. Right now, they even have colorful Mickey-shaped Grape Beignets!

    With all of the entertaining special events planned for 2024, I hope you find plenty of opportunities to use your Magic Key this year. Star Wars Season of the Force returns to Disneyland with one of my favorite thrilling attractions, Hyperspace Mountain, and Pixar Fest is taking place from April 26 through August 4, 2024.

    Henry, I'm sorry this wasn't the news that you were looking for. I do hope that you will enjoy using your Magic Key at the Happiest Place on Earth throughout the year! Thank you for reaching out to us at planDisney!
