    When we buy tickets will they take our pictures? Or how will they know which ticket belongs to whom?

    Hiya, Karla,

    I always get excited when it’s time to buy tickets to The Happiest Place on Earth! I’m glad you are preparing for a special visit too.

    The typical theme park ticket process at this time starts by linking the tickets to your Disneyland Resort online account and making theme park reservations. During the process of purchasing tickets or linking previously-purchased tickets, you will be prompted for the name of the Guest that will use each of the tickets. That linked name will help you keep track of tickets in the Disneyland app, which will be especially helpful when using the Disney Genie+ service if you purchase that additional entitlement.

    Theme park tickets only become activated when first used for admission at a theme park entrance. At the time of activation, a ticket will be associated with one Guest. Each ticket holder will have their photo taken at the park entrance. That photo will be used to verify each Guest when they use their ticket for re-entry on the same day as well as on subsequent days for a multi-day ticket.

    Tony’s Tip: When you activate a regular Disney eTicket, the Cast Member at the theme park entrance will also print out a ticket card. A Guest may use either the printed card or the Disneyland app for scanning the ticket at park re-entry or when accessing a Lightning Lane attraction entrance. Each ticket card also includes a space where you may write down the name of the Guest using that ticket. That will also help in keeping each ticket straight.

    I hope you have a most magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Karla. If you happen to be visiting during February, highly recommend enjoying some of the phenomenal entertainment available during “Celebrate Soulfully.”

    See ya real soon!
