Magic Key holders interested in showcasing their skills (or lack thereof) on the dance floor are in luck, because there is now a special exclusive dance party event coming to Disney California Adventure on select dates later in August.
Magic Key Dance Party
The Disneyland Resort announced the event in a recent Instagram post.
Magic Key holders of ALL ages, it’s almost time to put on your dancing shoes and show off your best moves at a Magic Key dance party in Disney California Adventure Park!
Stop by to meet and greet with characters, strike a pose with special photo ops, and more! As a special party favor, […] Key holders can pick up this magnet keepsake, while supplies last.
This event will be taking place at the Disney Junior Theater in Hollywood Land from August 14 through August 31, 2023. No weekend events will be occurring, Mondays through Thursdays only, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. PT. On August 24, there will be a slight variation, with the event only running from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

This program is a successor to the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder program, meant for “frequent visitors.” There has been some controversy over the changes that came with this new system, including a lawsuit which claimed Disney was falsely advertising the concept.
According to the latest motion in that case, which followed an in-person mediation, both Disney and Janale Nielsen (who filed both individually and on behalf of other key holders) have agreed to settle the lawsuit. The grievance alleged limiting the number of park pass reservations available for Dream Keys in particular — which were advertised as having “no blockout dates” — when passes for regular tickets are still available is a violation of the program’s contract.
Under the previous annual pass program, reservations weren’t needed, and passholders could generally visit as often as they wanted, as long as it wasn’t on a day marked as blocked.
As of August 2022, language was added to the terms and conditions of the passes regarding class action lawsuits. Through the purchase, guests now waive their right to pursue litigation related to the pass.
