Disney’s new “Magic Key” went on sale Wednesday, giving fans who enjoy trips to the Disneyland Resort’s theme parks the opportunity to visit frequently without having to purchase a ticket each time.

Like the popular annual passports — which were discontinued earlier this year — Magic Key gives Disneyland fans the chance to pay a set price for repeat admission, with a higher cost translating to more available dates and fewer blockout days.

The biggest change from the old program is that this new system requires users to make a reservation before they visit Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, regardless of which one they choose. Those can be obtained up to 90 days in advance and are available upon Magic Key purchase. (Note: making a reservation for both parks only counts as one reservation, but the holder “must enter the first park as designated in their park reservation” before going into the other; additionally, they won’t be able to enter the second park until after 1 p.m.)

Each option includes a set number of reservations the holder can have at once, with a new reservation becoming available as soon is one is used.

Here are the details of all four options, which include a breakdown of monthly payments that is only available to eligible California residents.
