    I recently upgraded my magic key pass from the imagine key to the inspire key and want to know if my current key pass pays off when upgrading to a higher magic key?

    Hello, Betzay!

    Welcome to planDisney! With your new Imagine Key, you now have fewer blockout days, free standard parking, and higher discounts on select merchandise and dining (subject to change). Very exciting! Make sure your new Magic Key is added to your Disneyland mobile app. This makes it easy to enter the parks, as well as access discounts on select mobile orders. I love that my Magic Key discount is automatically applied when I mobile order some of my favorite snacks, like Daisy's Goody-Goody Donuts from Cafe Daisy!

    If you were already on a Southern California resident payment plan, then you should have paid the increased difference in price when you upgraded to the Inspire Key. This would mean that your Imagine Key no longer exists, and payments would only be needed for the Inspire Key. The payment contract usually stays the same with the same monthly payments, since you would have provided a higher down payment. 

    On the other hand, if you purchased a separate Magic Key that was in addition to your current pass, then payments for both Magic Keys would still be needed. Guests sometimes do this if they want to keep their current Magic Key and wait to activate a new one.

    With a variety of special events taking place in 2024, it's a great year to be a Magic Key holder! The Lunar New celebration is starting in just a few days, and the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will have plenty of delicious food and beverages to share with friends!

    Betzay, thanks for contacting us at planDisney! I hope you find many opportunities to use your new Magic Key!
