    I am buying a California resident ticket but the problem is I don't have a state ID with my address on it because I am a military dependent, so I only have a valid military ID. Do I need a California ID to be able to get in?

    Hey howdy hey, Alyssa, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I always enjoy helping my fellow Southern Californians plan their next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! I also want to thank you and your family for your service!

    I’m so glad you’re looking into purchasing the awesome 3-Day SoCal Resident Ticket Offer, and I’d love to help you figure out the proper documents needed to purchase it. I checked with my dear friend, military wife, and fellow Panelist, Kristen N., to get the scoop. Typically, the Resort requires government-issued picture ID that shows your Southern California residency. Since you’re part of a military family, and your photo ID doesn’t show your current address, we recommend bringing your Military ID, in addition to a utility bill, if you happen to live off-base. If you live on-base, you can bring your Military ID, in addition to your Orders, or your most recent LES reflecting your Current Duty Station. Just make sure your ZIP code falls within the boundaries for the SoCal Resident Ticket Offer, which are between 90000-93599, or for Northern Baja California residents, between 21000-22999.

    Have you also heard about the wonderful ticket and hotel discounts available to Military families in 2020? The discounted 3-Day or 4-Day Military Promotional Park Hopper Tickets can be purchased on-base, or at a Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth. The Eligible Service Member or spouse would need to be present to both purchase these tickets and to use them. Eligible Service Members can purchase up to six of these tickets per year. 1-Day tickets are also available, and can be purchased on-base. The Eligible Service Member or spouse can purchase as many of these tickets as needed.

    I can’t wait for you to start enjoying your magical days at the Disneyland Resort, Alyssa! Be sure to check the Entertainment Schedule ahead of time so you can start mapping out your plans. There are so many exciting things to look forward to this year, including the debut of the “Magic Happens” Parade on February 28, and the 2020 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, also starting on February 28!

    I hope this information helps, Alyssa. Please stop by with any additional questions… I’m all EARs!
