    I just purchased a pass for my daughter, and I already have an expiration date on it from the day I purchased it. It was a brand new pass purchased. Not renewal or upgrade. Has it changed from 2023 now.

    Hello, Marie!

    Welcome to planDisney! Buying your daughter a Magic Key is the sweetest gift a person can receive! As a fellow Magic Key holder, I love having the ability to plan impromptu trips to Disneyland Resort. I also make sure to take advantage of Magic Key discounts on food and merchandise every time I am in the parks. 

    I checked the current Magic Key Terms and Conditions, and it states that a Pass will expire if it is not activated within one (1) year from the date of purchase. The expiration that you see is most likely related to this activation date. Once she uses the pass, she will have one full year to use her Magic Key from the date of activation. 

    With many exciting events planned in 2024, this is a fantastic year to become a Magic Key holder! The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival kicked off on March 1, 2024, and it is full of delicious food, beverages, and experiences. Magic Key passholders even receive a special price and lanyard when purchasing the Festival's Sip and Savor Pass, which includes 4 or 8 digital coupons that can be redeemed for select food and nonalcoholic beverages at participating Festival Marketplaces and dining locations. I use my Sip and Savor Pass on the highest-priced items to maximize the value of the pass!

    Marie, I am thrilled to welcome your daughter to the Magic Key family! Please contact us again if you have other questions!

    Have a Wonderous Journey!
