Since Disneyland’s Magic Key Program replaced the Park’s Annual Passholder Program last year, it has been a highly discussed topic. From different price points to availability and even alleged false advertisement, as stated in a now-infamous lawsuit, Magic Key passes have been a controversial part of the Disneyland experience as of late, to say the least.

All tiers of the Magic Key Program became unavailable to purchase as of May 31, meaning that the Disneyland Resort has not accepted new Passholders since that date. The two higher tiers of this program, the Dream Key and Believe Key, had sold out by November 2021, with the two remaining tiers, the Enchant Key and Imagine Key, becoming unavailable this May, in part due to the restriction these two last levels had when it came to available dates to visit the Park.

Many Guests assumed the worst that Disney had completely eliminated this service entirely, and with a complete lack of communication from Disney, this seemed like the obvious answer. However, it was just revealed moments ago that the service is continuing with a few big changes.
