Disneyland to crack down on Magic Key no-shows

Disneyland has started cracking down on Magic Key holders who don’t show up for their reserved visits to the park.

The “Happiest Place on Earth” announced this week that it will begin enforcing its policy to penalize Magic Key holders who don’t show up for their reservations. The policy has always existed, but so far it has not been enforced, Disney said.

The Magic Key system, which replaced the park’s annual pass program, requires most cardholders to reserve specific dates to visit the parks. There are a limited number of reservations available per day and those looking to visit the parks cannot do without them.

Disneyland says some Magic Key holders have booked visits to the park but haven’t shown up. There has been no penalty for missing a reservation – until now.

Magic Key holders who miss several of their scheduled reservations over a period of time will lose their ability to book additional park visits for at least 30 days.

Magic Key tickets went on sale last August, giving fans who love Disneyland Resort theme park trips the chance to visit frequently without having to purchase a ticket each time.

Like popular annual passes – which were discontinued last year – Magic Key gives Disneyland fans the option to pay a set price for repeat admission, with a higher cost translating into more available dates and fewer days blocked.

The biggest change from the old program is that this new system requires users to make a reservation before visiting Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, whichever they choose. These can be obtained up to 90 days in advance and are available when purchasing Magic Key.
