Disneyland Opens Up Magic Key Annual Pass Sales Again Today (UPDATE: Sales Paused)

Disneyland Replaces Annual Passes with Magic Key Program

Disneyland Resort has announced it will resume sales of select Magic Key annual passes today after pausing new sales earlier this year.


Well that was quick. A little over 24 hours after opening Magic Key passes to new sales, Disneyland has paused new sales on all passes, again.

A note on the website says:

“The Queue Has Closed

Due to the incredible popularity of our Magic Key program, we have stopped sales of new passes at this time to help protect the experience for Magic Key holders and the value those passes provide.”

Disneyland has stopped new sales of the Believe Key pass already. Renewals will continue.

Disneyland says: “While we know this will be disappointing news to Disneyland fans, it’s important that we help protect the experience for Magic Key holders and the value those passes provide.”

At this time, the Inspire Key (all guests) and Imagine Key (SoCal only) still remain available for new purchases.

The Details

Disney says the Inspire, Believe, and Imagine passes will resume new sales “no earlier than 9am PT” today (Wednesday, November 16, 2022).

The Enchant pass will remain unavailable for new sales at this time, but it is still available for current pass holders to renew.

Earlier this year, Disneyland paused Magic Key sales, then resumed pass renewals for existing Magic Key pass holders in August, but with new block out dates.

“With an incredible year ahead, we’re happy to open new sales for select Magic Key passes in time for holiday giving and to create opportunities for guests to treat themselves and their families to a year full of experiences during the upcoming Disney100 celebration,” a Disneyland official said in a statement.

The Passes

The Magic Key passes give users access to the parks on select dates, depending on which of the four levels they purchased.

The Inspire Key replaced the top tier Dream Key that was offered when the program was first introduced, and is priced at $1599 annually.

The Believe Key is a tier below and is priced at $1099 annually, and the Imagine Key is the bottom tier which is only available to Southern California residents for $449 annually.

The full terms and benefits can be found at the Disneyland website, which is where you’ll also find the link to purchase or renew Magic Keys.

In October, ticket prices at Disneyland Resort increased an average of 8%, making the Magic Keys a better value for frequent visits. The resort also increased the price of Genie+ at that time.
