    Debbie from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    1. Why is the most expensive pass blocked out for Christmas and new years? 2. Are passed still available on payment plans? We haven’t been holdere for about 8 years due to sons critical illness. Back then we could use that option. Thank you!

    Hey Debbie!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    There's so much new and exciting to explore at the Happiest Place on Earth since your last visit as a passholder. A lot has changed in the last 8 years and some notable additions that you'll get to enjoy are Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge with some thrilling attractions, “Magic Happens” Parade, Avengers Campus where you can find your favorite super heroes, San Fransokyo Square, Pixar Pier, The reimagining of Mickey's Toontown, the return of the Disney California Food & Wine Festival and so much more. It’s going to be a whole new world for you and you must be so excited to start planning to visit.

    The passholder program for multiple yearly visits has had some changes and the Annual Passholder program has been discontinued. The Magic Key Program was recently introduced and is very similar to what you were used to in the past. Some key differences are reservation-based admission based on availability and that there is no longer an option for a pass without any blackout dates. As you mentioned, the Inspire Key has blackout dates at the end of the year during Christmas and New Years  and there is no Magic Key option with those dates available. If you'd like to visit during that time you would need to purchase a regular ticket. Magic Keys are currently unavailable for purchase and are only available for renewals. When sales open up again monthly payments are available for California residents after a down payment. If you'd like to know when Magic Key sales will resume you'll want to follow the official Magic Key Instagram page as they'll be the first ones to release that information. 

    Well Debbie, if you have any more questions for us please come back and let us know. 

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
