According to a report from the OC Register, a federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit that alleges Disneyland has misled and deceived Magic Key Passholders is allowed to proceed. Disneyland is attempting to get the case dismissed.
At the heart of the lawsuit is the Park Pass reservation system, which puts in place additional restrictions on an Annual Pass beyond the blockout dates listed for the pass. The lawsuit is seeking $5 million in damages for Magic Key annual passholders.
United States District Court Judge David Carter denied Disney’s motion to dismiss, stating “the court finds that plaintiff has adequately pled facts supporting how a reasonable consumer may be deceived by the advertisement, which states ‘no blockout dates.’ Plaintiff argues that ordinary consumers generally understand blockout dates to be ‘dates when tickets, credits, passes or rewards cannot be used.”
The Disneyland website currently lists Magic Key passes as having “reservation-based” admission to the Disneyland Resort theme parks.
