    Hello. If you have a reservation for Disneyland with a Magic Key but enter California Adventure first after 11 AM and spend the rest of the day at California Adventure without going to Disneyland, is that considered a strike? Thank you.

    Greetings, Caden! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney. We are happy to help!

    Being a Disneyland Magic Key pass holder comes with a lot of pixie dust, including discounts on select dining and merchandise, access to Magic Key Terrace, and exclusive Magic Key holder keepsakes throughout the year. If you haven't yet, I recommend that you follow @disneylandmagickey on Instagram to make sure you get the most up-to-date Magic Key news throughout the year.

    Caden, the Magic Key No-Show Policy states that "A Magic Key holder who enters the designated park any time before closing on the day of the reservation is not considered a no-show. If the reservation is for both parks, only one park needs to be entered to avoid being a no-show." Since all Magic Keys have park hopper benefits after 11:00 AM, after that time a theme park reservation is considered good for both parks. This means that if you enter either theme park on the day of your reservation, you are good to go and you will not be considered a no-show! Be sure to keep an eye on the Park Hours calendar for the most up-to-date park hours.

    With the Lunar New Year Celebration going on at Disney California Adventure Park right now through February 18, 2024, I don't blame you for wanting to spend some extra time there. Be sure to check out the Disney Eats: Foodie Guide for the event to find your next favorite dish. I tried the Fried Lemongrass Chicken Dumplings from the Wrapped with Love Festival Marketplace and it will haunt my dreams - it was perfection!

    Thanks for stopping by, Caden. Happy planning!
