    my question is on magic key and when a holder doesn't pay it or renew it does it become available to the public, is there a way to get notify if they do become available for purchase?

    Hi Hector,

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so glad you stopped by with a question for us. 

    Magic Keys are always a hot ticket item at Disneyland Resort, and I'm sure on many guests' holiday wish lists this year. As you've seen, select passes may become unavailable without warning and unfortunately, all new sales are still paused at this time. I completely understand your feelings as I experienced the same disappointment when Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass sales were paused in 2021. I was planning to upgrade my standard ticket during a visit in early 2022, but unfortunately, sales were halted before I could complete my mission. I kept a close eye on Disney Parks Blog and was quick to purchase one as soon as sales resumed in April 2023.

    Magic Key as passes are non-transferable, and to my knowledge, there isn't any way to get a notification of another guest's delinquent payments or non-renewal in order to purchase their pass. Your best bet is to follow Disney Parks Blog and the official Disneyland Magic Key Instagram account for the latest details as soon as Magic Key sales are set to resume.

    I know this is likely not the answer you hoped for, but there is plenty of magic in store for guests with or without a Magic Key. The holiday season is in full swing with dazzling decor and seasonal snacks through January 7, 2024. I visited last December and was captivated by the merry and magical atmosphere in the parks and resorts. If you happen to be a Southern California resident you might want to check out the special offers for 3-day tickets available for visits between January 2 and June 2, 2024. If not, keep an eye out for other special offers and promotions that might fit your needs. 

    Hector, if we can answer any additional questions or offer more planning assistance please come back and let us know. 

    Wishing you magic and memories,
