Whether they are sailing with Disney Cruise Line or visiting Disneyland, Disney vacationers now have more options.
This week, the Disneyland Resort in California announced increased sales of its yearly passes, and Disney Cruise Line would upgrade its fleet of ships with new technologies to improve the onboard experience. Here is what visitors should know.
At Disneyland, “Magic Keys” are for sale.
The four different “Magic Key” annual passes from Disneyland will once more be on sale on Tuesday, starting “no earlier” than 9 a.m. Pacific Time, the theme park announced in an Instagram post on the account for the annual passes. In 2021, Disneyland introduced the multi-tier scheme after visitors complained that they had to wait up to seven or eight hours to get a day ticket.
Several levels of savings and benefits are available with each pass category.
Cost of the Inspire Key is $1,599.
Cost of the Believe Key is $1,099.
Cost of the Enchant Key is $699.
According to Disneyland’s website, “Southern California Residents living in zip codes 90000 to 93599” are the only people who can purchase the $449 Imagine Key.
Online shoppers can purchase “Magic Keys.” The passes are contingent upon availability and dates with blockouts.
Introduced by Disney Cruise Line is DisneyBand+.
MagicBand+, but make it sail: This summer, Disney Cruise Line will bring the wearable technology used in theme parks to the open seas.
Prior to its official launch, DisneyBand+ will be available for preview on a few cruises aboard the line’s Disney Wish ship.
According to a post on the Disney Parks Blog last week, passengers wearing DisneyBand+ will be able to tap to unlock their cabin and charge items like souvenirs hands-free. Little children can also use them to attend kids clubs like Disney’s Oceaneer Club, instead of an Oceaneer Club Band. Also, visitors can connect images taken by onboard photographers with their rooms using the band.
“During your trip, wearing your DisneyBand+ will enable you to find enchanted surprises, so keep an eye out for extra magical moments. Also, it is rechargeable, making it the ideal companion for your next Disney vacations, including Disney cruises, trips to Disney Parks, and stays at Disney Resort hotels “added the blog post.
