    just purchased a magic key pass today but we have a previous reservation for this week that we purchased separately can i use my pass for discounts for this reservation?

    Hi there, Jennifer, and welcome to planDisney!

    First of all, congratulations on getting a Magic Key Pass for yourself! We were all excited to hear that Magic Key sales would be resuming this week and it sounds like there are many happy Guests just waiting to activate their Passes and visit the Parks.

    There are a couple of things to consider for your upcoming visit, Jennifer. For a new Magic Key Pass, you will have one year from the date of purchase to activate that Pass by using it for your first admission to Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure. Ordinarily, Magic Key discounts are valid even on blockout dates (except for parking) and days when you've used a standard theme park ticket to enter the Parks. However, a Magic Key Pass must first be activated in order to take advantage of these discounts. So for your upcoming visit, your options include:

    1. Activating your Magic Key Pass by using it for your admission, thereby enabling the discounts during your visit. You can then save the standard Theme Park Ticket for another time (e.g., a blockout date) or gift it to someone else.
    2. Use your already purchased Theme Park Ticket for this upcoming trip and saving your Magic Key Pass to activate later. If you aren't planning on visiting again for a while, this might make more sense because your Magic Key expires one year after activation.

    If you opt to use your Magic Key Pass, you'll need to make another set of reservations for your trip. You'll have to decide what works best for you in this situation. If you're planning on making some large purchases over this trip, that discount will come in very handy!

    I hope that this response helped clear things up for you, Jennifer! I wish you a truly magical trip to the Disneyland Resort and hope that you enjoy the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! Please let us know if you need anything further because we'd love to hear from you again. Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
