    I renewed my magic key, does it activate right after my current magic key expires or can I hold off activating the renewal for a year, like a new pass?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Michael. We're so glad you're here to share this question with us. I'm also excited to hear that you are a Magic Key holder and I hope that you've been enjoying your year of magic. 

    Hooray for renewing your Magic Key pass to prolong the magic! There are so many magical things in store for 2024 at the Disneyland Resort and I hope that you get to experience as many as possible. Once you've renewed your Magic Key pass, it will be active on the day immediately after your current Magic Key pass expires. Unfortunately, you aren't able to delay your activation date when you renew. 

    On the bright side, you can immediately start making theme park reservations for your renewed Magic Key pass. When you log into your Disney account to make a reservation you will see the option to make a reservation for your currently active pass or for your renewed pass. I found this super helpful to secure dates for park visits beyond the expiration of my Magic Key pass.

    I hope you've been enjoying all of the perks that come with being a Magic Key holder. If you aren't already, I recommend following @disneylandmagickey on Instagram to stay updated on the latest news and offerings.

    Michael, while this might not have been the answer you were looking for, I hope the information is still helpful. Here's to another year filled with magic at the Happiest Place on Earth!
