    Hi, I bought a ticket for my friend but it has my name on it. Do I need to change the name on the richer before we go? Thank you!

    Hello there, Gina! Thanks for visiting planDisney!

    Your trip is just around the corner - you and your pal must be getting so excited to make some Disney memories together! You will arrive in time to celebrate one of my favorite times of year at the Disneyland Resort, the Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure Park. It is the year of the dragon and my friend Mushu from the movie Mulan is having his moment in the spotlight. Make sure to visit Lunar New Year Wishing Wall located in Paradise Gardens and enjoy some tasty Asian-inspired bites at the Lunar New Year Marketplaces.

    Gina, I have good news! If you have a standard theme park ticket, there is no need to change the name on the ticket prior to your visit. Assigning a name to the ticket is more for you, the Guest, to be able to tell the difference between tickets in the Disneyland Mobile App. The ticket will be linked to your friend the first time they scan in at one of the park entrances. At that time, a Cast Member will take a photo of your pal and the ticket will officially be linked to them!

    If you still want to update the name on the ticket prior to your visit, you may call Ticket Services or use the chat function in the Disneyland app to connect with a Cast Member. Please note that you must use the Disney account associated with the purchase of the ticket to request the name change.

    I hope this answers your question, Gina. Thanks again for stopping by planDisney, and may you have a most magical trip to the happiest place on Earth!
