    When renewing a Magic Key pass is the renewal payment due that same day? My current payment day is the 17th of each month and since my last payment was recently withdrawn from my account a few days ago is another payment due upon renewal?

    Ahoy there, Andrew, and welcome to planDisney!

    Unlike the pirates who will forever be reaching for the keys to their prison cell from the "mangy mutt," it sounds like you'll soon be able to renew your Magic Key! I hope it's been a magical year for you and that you've enjoyed your Magic Key as much as I have mine. It's afforded me the luxury of visiting the Disneyland Resort many times this year and I've loved experiencing its many benefits and bonuses. 

    Like you, I am a California resident and have opted to pay for my Magic Key in monthly installments as well, so I was able to recently learn the answer to your question by direct experience. I also called to confirm this information with a Cast Member too, in order to verify that the information is still current. 

    You are eligible to renew your Magic Key within 30 days before its expiration date. Be careful not to let that date pass, because late renewals are not allowed! When you renew your Magic Key, you are essentially entering another monthly payment contract with Disney and you will be charged for the new Magic Key soon after. In my confirmation email, it states in small print that the "first payment will be charged later today or shortly thereafter." Your old Magic Key will remain valid until its expiration date and the new one will take over after that, so you will not be losing any time from your Magic Key. 

    Are you currently following the official Magic Key Instagram account?  Between them and the Magic Key Portal in the Disneyland Mobile App, I'll often learn about specials only for Magic Key Holders and have gotten some pretty neat souvenirs that way! It's become my pattern to check both every time before I visit the Parks now. 

    I hope I was able to answer your question, Andrew. If there is anything else we can do for you, please reach out to us again! You're always welcome at planDisney! Until next time!

    Have a Magical Day!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
