The biggest sources of traffic ad Disneyland has always been the local Disney fans. But one thing that kept that going is the annual passes. However, when the park reopened after being closed for the pandemic, annual passes did not return. But there is big news that comes with that. They have announced a new type of annual pass with the Disneyland Magic Key Pass. This will have a lot to offer annual pass holders.
What is the Disneyland Magic Key Pass?
The new rebranded annual pass provides a variety of options based on guest preferences. They are implementing a tiered system that provides escalating benefits to match guests’ needs starting as low as $399 per year. Part of the new annual pass will have a revamped reservation system which they report will be a cornerstone to the program. Depending on the tier, guests can book 2 – 6 reservations per time. This will become available starting on August 25th, 2021. It is important to note that the dates for a reservation could be limited, but we will know more in the future.
