BREAKING: Enchant, Believe, and Inspire Magic Key Passes Now Sold Out for Disneyland Resort

by Staff

Following today’s resumption of sales for all four Magic Key Pass types for Disneyland Resort, now only one pass remains available for purchase, as of 5:54 p.m. PT.

Three Magic Key Pass Types Sold Out

At this time, the following Magic Key types are now sold out and only available for renewals:

  • Inspire Key: $1,649
  • Believe Key: $1,249
  • Enchant Key: $849

The Imagine Key is still available for purchase, but only for Southern California residents living in zip codes 90000 to 93599. California residents are also able to purchase a pass with a monthly payment option, but must be logged into their Disney account with a stored California address to do so.

Sales for the passes began this morning. Hopeful passholders enter a virtual queue, with current wait times listed as “more than an hour.” Once guests make it through the queue, they have 10 minutes to enter the site, which does not guarantee the ability to purchase any of the pass options.

Until all passes are sold out, new pass sales will be paused nightly at 10 p.m. PT, and will resume no earlier than 9 a.m. PT the following day. Guests can remain in the queue overnight, so long as they stay connected to the network and keep their browser window open. New pass sales are only available online. Disneyland has also shared their own buying guide for Magic Key passes.

Magic Key Program

Disneyland Resort first introduced the Magic Key program in 2021 when the parks reopened post-pandemic, replacing their annual passes. Sales kicked off in August 2021, with four pass tiers. The highest tier, the Dream Key, sold out in October 2021, and the Believe Key also sold out shortly afterward.

In December 2021, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Disney, alleging that the company falsely advertised their highest tier Dream Key as having “no blockout dates,” while simultaneously offering a very limited amount of park reservations for Key holders. Despite the opposition from Disney’s legal team, a federal judge ruled to move forward with the lawsuit on May 13, 2022. Just a couple of weeks later on May 31, all sales of Magic Keys were suspended.

The lawsuit was eventually settled in July 2023, with Disney paying out Dream Key holders approximately $67.41 from a settlement fund that totaled $9.5 million.

Magic Key renewals opened on August 2023, with some changes to the program. The Dream Key was permanently discontinued, and a new tier, the Imagine Key, was introduced. In addition, all four Key tiers now had blockout dates. A new clause was added to the terms and conditions requiring the purchasing Magic Key holder to waive their right to file a class-action lawsuit.

Pass sales reopened to all guests for about a day in November 2022 before being paused again, and then resuming in January 2023. Sales of new Magic Keys were suspended again on September 8, 2023.
