    1st time visiting as a family and we are excited! We plan for 3 days and want the best experience as possible. If we buy tickets is it wise to purchase the magic key at the time. Is there a number I can call to do this right now? Kind regards

    Hi there, Brian. Welcome to planDisney.

    Thanks for stopping by, and we’re honored to help you plan your first family trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! A three-day visit is a good amount of time to explore both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park at a leisurely pace. 

    I see that you’re also considering being new Magic Key Passholders. With variable blockout dates for Magic Key passes, I would suggest checking to see whether the days you plan to visit are available for Magic Key Passholders. Additionally, I recommend comparing the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar (for day passes) with the Magic Key Pass Access Calendars (vary for different Magic Key tiers). If the days you plan to visit are blocked for Magic Key Passes, but available for day passes, then it’d be best to upgrade on your last day of your visit. However, if the dates are available for both Magic Key Pass and day pass, then it’d be a good idea to consider becoming Magic Key Passholders prior to your visit. That way, you can take advantage of all the benefits and discounts during your entire trip.

    Due to high call volume, wait times to speak with a Cast Member on the phone have been very long. To contact Annual Passholders Service, you can call (714) 781-PASS (7277). If you wish to purchase your Magic Key Pass prior to your arrival, you can do so on Disneyland.com or on the Disneyland mobile app. Prefer to wait until your arrival? Just visit any Main Entrance ticket booth and a Cast Member will assist you in upgrading your tickets to Magic Key Passes.

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Brian. Please feel free to write us again if you have more questions. 

    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
