  • Disneyland® Park Reservations – There’s a new reservation system in place and all Guests ages 3 and up will need both a theme park reservation and a valid admission ticket, for the same park on the same date. If you’re planning on getting a multi-day ticket, make sure you’re also making park reservations for every day of your visit. You can check theme park reservation availability online, so do that before you buy your tickets to make sure you can get both on the days you’re planning to be here!
  • Disneyland® Resort Magic Key Program – The new Magic Key Program launches August 25, 2021, and is SUCH an exciting option for Disney lovers!There are four Magic Key types ranging in price from $399 – $1399 so that you can select the right program for your trip. There’s a Dream Key, Believe Key, Enchant Key, and Imagine Key, each with options for admission days, pricing, experiences, and savings on food & beverages, and merchandise! Magic Key holders still have to have theme park reservations in addition to a valid Magic Key pass, so check online for reservation availability when you’re planning your trip!

“When you’re a Magic Key holder, Disneyland is your land—you’re a townsperson on Main Street, U.S.A., a galactic citizen of Batuu, a hero at Avengers Campus, a local at Pixar Pier and beyond. You belong to the community of core Disneyland fans who all share a passion and love for the parks.”
