Disneyland Resort will again sell Magic Key yearly passes
On Wednesday, November 16th, after a pause of six months, the Disneyland Resort will once again begin selling three of the four Magic Key yearly passes.
On the Disneyland app and website, sales will begin no sooner than 9 a.m. Pacific.
Only three of the four passes are being made available for sale at the same pricing as before. Existing pass users can renew their Enchant pass up to 30 days before their passes expire, however new pass holders will not be able to purchase the pass. If a guest has an Enchant key, they need to renew it before it expires.
You can buy one of the following passes:
• Inspire: $1,599
• Believe: $1,099
• Imagine: $449 (Southern California residents only)
“Passes or a pass type may not be accessible from time to time or at any particular period,” a Disney representative stated.
Disney stated that the current pass system was put into place in August 2021 to help with crowd control. While the parks were closed for over a year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it substituted an annual pass scheme.
Since the Inspire Key has replaced the Dream Key, sales of the former product were discontinued in October 2021. Believe Key purchases were halted the next month. As of the month of May, the Enchant Key and Imagine Key passes were no longer for sale.
Some visitors have been annoyed by the recent modifications to the annual passes. Visitors who could earlier walk right in are now expected to make reservations, and there is no guarantee that a spot will be available. You can’t use some of the passes on weekends or throughout the summer.
At least two Dream Key holders have filed lawsuits against Disney, claiming that they were misled into purchasing the pass because they were assured that they would not be subject to any blackout days.
With the Christmas season in full swing and new attractions on the horizon to honour The Walt Disney Company’s 100th anniversary, the sales will be welcome news to resort regulars whose passes have expired or who were planning to buy new passes.
Two of these are the new nighttime spectaculars at Disneyland, which will involve projections and, on select nights, fireworks, and the revamped World of Color show at Disney California Adventure.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, a trackless attraction, will debut on January 27 in Toontown at Disneyland.
A week after the company’s dismal earnings report and the subsequent leak of an internal document announcing a hiring freeze and layoffs, pass sales have resumed. The impact of these changes on the theme parks has not been disclosed by the firm.
