Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are timeless destinations that have captured the hearts of millions around the world. For those truly enchanted by the magic these theme parks offer, becoming an annual Park Passholder is a dream come true. Being a Passholder means holding the key to unforgettable experiences, exciting adventures, and memories that last a lifetime.

Disneyland Resort’s version of annual passes is the Magic Key Program, a tiered pass system that allows Guests to pick the price and benefits that work best for their needs. There are several tiers of the Magic Key pass, each offering distinct benefits and privileges. In addition to these built-in privileges, Disney also offers occasional promotions as a way to keep their pass holders feeling happy.

Now that it is available for free for Magic Key holders, they can unlock a whole new level of magic during their visit to Disneyland Resort at no extra charge.

For those unfamiliar with MagicBands, they are colorful and stylish wristbands that serve as an all-in-one tool for guests at Disney parks. These bands contain an electronic chip that can hold a wealth of information, including room keys and Park passes. MagicBands revolutionized the way Guests navigate and enjoy the Disney parks, providing a seamless and convenient experience.
