    We just purchased magic key passes. We are hoping to activate them on a day that is blacked out on our specific Pass calendar. Is that OK?

    Welcome, Brett! Thanks so much for bringing your question to planDisney and I'll be happy to get you some answers so you can fully enjoy those brand-new Magic Key Passes!

    I'm so happy to hear you were successful in the Magic Key purchase process. It has been such a popular program for Guests and I think you're going to love having access to reservation-based theme park admission, special discounts, and fun merchandise offerings all year long! 

    Brett, activating a new Magic Key Pass will happen in one of two ways: either the first use of the pass for entry to one of the Disneyland Resort theme parks or the use of the pass for fully-paid first entry into a pay-on-entry lot at Disneyland Resort. Passes are not activated by using a parking discount. With that in mind, you could technically opt to activate your pass using the fully-paid parking benefit, (if applicable to your pass type), even if you did not enter the theme parks that day due to blockout dates. However, you wouldn't be able to use your Magic Key for entrance to the theme parks on a date that is blocked out for your pass type. All Guests are still required to have both valid theme park admission and park reservations to be able to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks. 

    I hope this helps clarify a bit, Brett. I'm sure you have so many plans to unlock the magic throughout this whole year as a Magic Key Holder! And 2024 is set to be a very exciting year at Disneyland Resort, with seasonal events and limited-time celebrations planned all year long! If we can help share any personal advice or helpful hints to maximize your upcoming visits, please feel welcome to reach out to planDisney again! 

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
