A DISNEY MAGICAL UPDATE

Well, Covid has ramped up once again, which means Disney has guests and cast members wearing masks for safety in both Disney World and Disneyland. Masks aren’t required out in the open areas at this time; however, masks are required on transportation, in lines for attractions, at indoor attractions, in stores, in restaurants unless actively eating, and on rides. While we realize that none of us wanted masks to return, the covid cases are rising more and more in Florida & California.



Disneyland has a new name for their annual pass, The Magic Key. There are four different types of keys: Dream Key, Believe Key, Enchant Key, and Imagine Key. The Dream Key has the most perks and costs the most. The Believe Key & The Enchant Key are your mid-priced annual passes, and The Imagine Key can only be purchased by Southern California residents. These Keys go on sale August 25th at 10 a.m. Pacific Time. For the prices and perks of each key, go to Disney’s website. Disney World will be bringing back the Annual Pass, but the date and prices haven’t been released yet. Disney has said that these will be released before the October 1st anniversary date.

Epcot will debut Harmonious on October 1st, too. It will tell a story of global connection that illustrates our shared humanity.
