    I bought a ticket for my Daughter in law and she can no longer go but my sister can in her place. How do I change the name on the ticket.

    Hey there, Christina! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with a question! 

    I’m sorry to hear that your daughter-in-law won’t be able to make it on your trip to “The Merriest Place on Earth!” Don’t forget to bring her back a souvenir. May I suggest a holiday popcorn bucket or sipper? These fun limited-time souvenirs are available throughout both theme parks! I’m sure it’s a gift that she’ll love! 
    I am happy to report that you do not have to change the name on her unused ticket for your sister to use it. That’s because upon arrival a Cast Member will take a picture of the person using each ticket. From then on the ticket is associated with the person in the picture, not the name on the ticket.  So feel free to bring your sister instead of your daughter-in-law and head straight to the turnstiles. I hope you have a wonderful time! 

    Thanks again for bringing your question to planDisney

Greetings from San Diego, CA! I'm a wife, cat mom and Disney-loving "childfree millennial." I've traveled all around the world, but my favorite place to visit is "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I've been going to the Disneyland Resort for over 25 years. Each time I step through the turnstiles to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy, I feel the magic of Walt Disney's original park. I can't wait to answer your questions and help you experience all that the Disneyland Resort has to offer! Learn More About Tiffanie
