    Where should/can buy for first time the magic key? It’s in Disney website or in the app? And if also I’m buying one for gift can I use my Disney app or is better to buy both (first time both) on Disney.com? Thank you

    Greetings, Eva! Thanks for visiting us at planDisney. We're glad you are here!

    You're in luck! Magic Key Pass sales resume online tomorrow, January 10, no earlier than 9 AM PST. Please note that Magic Key sales are subject to limited availability, and passes or a pass type may not be available from time to time, so I recommend buying them as soon as they are available for purchase. 

    Prior to tomorrow, I recommend reading the program overview on the main Magic Key Pass page that outlines the Magic Key Pass options. I also think that the Magic Key Buying Guide and the Magic Key Calendar have some really important information!

    Here is some information from the Buying Guide about how to buy a Magic Key that I think will be of interest to you:

    Create a Disney Account
    - You’ll need a Disney account to purchase a Magic Key pass online. If you don’t have one, create a Disney account here.
    - If you’re a California resident, your stored Disney account address must be a California address in order to view any monthly payment options for available Magic Key passes when they are on sale.

    Confirm Your Disney Account Payment Method
    - You may want to add and save a preferred credit card in your Disney account. If you’re a California resident, make sure the stored credit card has a California billing address in order to use it for monthly payments.
    - A Disney Gift Card can be used as a method of payment online when making a payment in full for a new pass. Only one Disney Gift Card can be used per transaction, so if you have multiple gift cards, combine them in advance. Disney Gift Cards cannot be used to purchase renewals at this time.

    Prepare Required Party Information
    Each Magic Key pass must be assigned to an individual at the time of purchase (maximum of 10 passes). Passes may not be reassigned after purchase. You will need to provide the following information for each person in your party:

    - First and last name
    - Date of birth
    - Address
    - Phone number (Guests 18 years of age and older)
    - Email (Guests 18 years of age and older)
    - The provided email address may be used to communicate program updates and important information about the pass.

    Also, for California residents, there is an option to make monthly payments toward the purchase of a Magic Key pass. If this sounds of interest to you, know that there will be an initial down payment equal to the current price of a 1-Day, Tier 1 Park Hopper Ticket plus the first monthly payment of the remaining amount. You can use this math to estimate the deposit for the type of pass that you are hoping to get. 

    Eva, I hope that this information was everything you were looking for. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
