    My wife and I were gifted Disney gift cards for Christmas. With the announcement of Magic Keys being available again, will we be able to use the Disney gift cards as the downpayment and make monthly payments for the remainder of the balance?

    Hello there,

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you stopped by with your question and that you're considering purchasing a Magic Key for more trips to the Happiest Place on Earth over the next year.

    Disney Gift Cards are able to be used on practically all things Disney! I'm happy to share that you are able to use a Disney Gift Card as an eligible form of payment when making a payment in full for new passes on the Disneyland Resort website. 

    A few notes on this process in regards to your specific question. First, you can only use one Disney Gift Card toward the process. It sounds like you have multiple, so Hakuna Matata! You can combine multiple gift cards together on the Disney Gift Cards website.

    Second, you would need to pay in full when purchasing with a Disney Gift Card, so keep that in mind when you're purchasing as you'll need to pay the difference with another form of payment.

    Third, more of a planDisney suggestion/tip - all kudos here to my planDisney pal, Amanda: if you're interested in a payment plan for your Magic Key then save your Disney Gift Cards! After you are a passholder, you'll receive discounts on all sorts of things around the Disneyland Resort, which means your Disney Gift Cards will go further. So consider using them on your trips over the next year instead of toward the purchase!

    You have a magical year of trips to the Happiest Place on Earth in your future! Thanks again for your question and enjoy your new Magic Key.

    Have a Magical Day,
