UPDATE: Sales for All Four Magic Key Pass Tiers Halted Again for Disneyland Resort, Only Renewals Available

Brit Tuttle

According to the official website for Disneyland Resort, all four tiers of the Magic Key pass are now sold out, following yesterday’s initial release of passes and promptly selling out of three of the four tiers.

Magic Key Passes Sold Out Again

The news was shared via a notice on the virtual queue page for Magic Key purchases.

Due to the incredible popularity of our Magic Key program, we have stopped sales of new passes at this time to help protect the experience for Magic Key holders and the value those passes provide.

Renewals for current Magic Key holders—within their renewal window (currently up to 30 days before pass expiration)—are being offered for all available pass types (Inspire, Believe, Enchant and Imagine) at this time, but are subject to change.

Yesterday, the Inspire, Believe, and Enchant Keys all sold out around 5:54 p.m. PT, leaving only the Imagine Key available for purchase to Southern California residents living in ZIP codes 90000 to 93599 only.

Sales launched for all four passes yesterday, and hopeful passholders were made to enter a virtual queue with extensive wait times. If they made it through the queue, guests had only 10 minutes to enter the site and attempt to purchase their desired pass. Guests were able to keep their spot in the queue overnight, so long as they kept the webpage open and maintained a connection to the internet.

Sales were paused last night at 10 p.m. PT and resumed at 9 a.m. PT this morning — meaning the last tier of passes sold out in almost three hours.

Magic Key Program

The Magic Key program launched in 2021 as a replacement for the Disneyland Resort annual pass program. The Dream Key was the original highest tier of Magic Key.

In December 2021, Dream Key holders filed a class-action lawsuit against Disney alleging that the company falsely advertised the pass as having “no blockout dates” while offering a very limited amount of park reservations for Key holders. A federal judge ruled to move forward with the lawsuit in May 2022 and all sales of Magic Keys were suspended two weeks later.

The lawsuit was settled in July 2023. Disney had to pay Dream Key holders approximately $67.41 from a settlement fund totaling $9.5 million.

When Magic Key renewals opened in August 2023, the Dream Key was discontinued and replaced by the Imagine Key. All Key passes now had blockout dates and Disney added a clause to the Magic Key terms and conditions requiring the Key holders waive their right to file a class-action lawsuit.

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