“A new Inspire top-tier annual pass with no park access during the two weeks around Christmas and New Year’s Day replaces the former Dream Key with year-round access that is being retired.

“The new prices for the four Disneyland Magic Key annual passes: Inspire $1,599, Believe $1,099, Enchant $699 and Imagine $449. Magic Key costs will increase $200 (14%) for the Inspire Key compared to the former Dream Key, $150 (16%) for the Believe Key, $50 (8%) for the Enchant Key and $50 (13%) Imagine Key, which is available only to Southern California residents.”

“Existing passholders can purchase any of the four Magic Key passes regardless of their current pass — as long as they are within the renewal window.”

By Dusty Sage -August 8, 2022

“The drumbeat of concern from Disneyland’s Magic Key pass holders is growing louder by the day. With just a few weeks until many Magic Keys begin to expire, there is still no official news on when Key Holders will be able to plunk down their hundreds or thousands of dollars for continued access to Disneyland.
