Disney’s Annual Passes are no longer solely available to those Guests who already have them. Well, at least some of them.
The Disneyland Resort announced that it would resume selling some tiers of its Annual Pass–known as “Magic Key”–to non-Passholder Guests today, November 16, 2022.
The news was shared over Twitter by Theme Park Insider Scott Gustin, who explained that the Inspire, Believe, and Imagine Magic Key Passes would resume sales by 9 am local time today. The Imagine Key is available only to Southern California residents, and the Enchant Key will remain exclusively for renewing Magic Key holders.

This news follows the announcement from Walt Disney World Resort in Florida that its Annual Passes would increase in price. But, it seems that even with the price hikes, the top-tier Incredi-Pass will still not be as expensive as Disneyland’s Inspire Key.
It was not that long ago when Disney Fanatic shared the news that Disneyland would finally allow pre-existing Magic Key Holders to renew for updated tiers, and unfortunately, every single Disneyland Magic Key level comes with a certain number of blackout dates. Click the link below to read out previous coverage.
Annual Passes to both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida have been suspended since the start of the covid-19 pandemic in 2020. After reopening, Disney World restructured its Annual Pass system and began offering them only as renewals to pre-existing passholders. Disneyland, whose reopening took significantly longer than its Florida sibling, did not begin offering even renewals until earlier this year. As of this article’s publication, though, Disney World Annual Passes–the Incredi-Pass, Sorcerer Pass, and Pirate Pass–remain exclusively for renewing Passholders. The lowest tier, the Pixie Dust Pass, is available for Florida residents only. At this time, it is still unclear when Disney World will open sales for new passholders.
Disney World Annual Passholders and Disneyland Magic Key Holders are still required to make Theme Park Reservations in order to visit the Theme Parks.
