Magic Key Virtual Queue Removed, Sales Continue for Most Tiers at Disneyland Resort One Week Later

While Magic Key sales before now had usually been short-term, even as short as a single day, it seems inventory may have greatly expanded, or the hype has died down for Magic Keys at the Disneyland Resort. The virtual queue which guarded sales of the coveted passes has been removed from the Disneyland website, with three of the four tiers still on sale.

Three tiers of Magic Key have been on sale since they reopened last week — Inspire, Believe, and Imagine. Since going back on sale January 17, none of the three passes available have sold out as of publishing. Enchant Key was not made available and still remains only for renewals.

Magic Key Program

Disneyland Resort introduced the Magic Key program as a replacement for Annual Passes. Sales began in August 2021 with four pass tiers. The highest tier, the Dream Key, sold out in October 2021, followed quickly by the Believe Key.

In December 2021, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Disney, alleging that Disney falsely advertised their highest tier Dream Key as having “no blockout dates” despite the very limited bucket of reservations available for Key holders.

Despite opposition from Disney’s legal team, a federal judge ruled that the lawsuit could move forward on May 13, 2022. On May 31, sales of all Magic Keys were suspended.

When renewals began in August, changes had been made to the program. The Dream Key was permanently discontinued, and a new Imagine Key was introduced. Notably, all four tiers now had blockout dates. Additionally, a clause was added to the terms and conditions requiring the Key Holder to waive the right to file a class action lawsuit upon agreement.

Pass sales were opened to all guests for about a day in November 2022 before being paused again.
