Magic Key Benefits: Disneyland Annual Passholder Current Perks

The Magic Key program is the current annual passholder program at Disneyland. Each membership tier comes with its own level of discounts depending on the tier you purchased. But there are many perks, special events and freebies that Disney offers to their Magic Key holders throughout the year. These offerings usually connect to current seasonal events in the parks but also include exclusive dining that members can access throughout the year.

Discount Hack for Disneyland Annual Pass Program

There is a HACK to save money on the new Disneyland Annual Pass program. You can purchase our exclusively discounted tickets from Get Away Today and upgrade those tickets into your Annual Pass at the full rack rate of the tickets.
Here's an example. When you purchase a Disneyland 4-day park hopper ticket through our private discount links to Get Away Today you only pay $406 per ticket instead of the ticket booth rate of $420. That's a savings of $14 per ticket. That savings will be passed on to you if you upgrade your ticket to an Annual Pass. The full value of the discounted ticket will be applied towards your Annual Pass payment even though you only paid $406.
The steps for upgrading a discounted ticket into an Annual Pass are:
  • Purchase your discounted Disneyland ticket via our private links to Get Away Today so that you get an additional savings
  • Make your park reservations for any time within the 13 days of the first use of the ticket.
  • On the final day of your ticket after you have entered the park for the first time, go into the Disneyland app and select the option to upgrade your ticket to a Magic Key Disneyland Annual Pass. That's right, it is so simple you only have to use your app!
The only ticket type that cannot be upgraded to an Annual Passport is the current California resident ticket special. If you purchased one of these tickets from Get Away Today and you want to switch the ticket so that you can upgrade to an Annual Pass, reach out to them and they will help you make the switch.
