    My daughter is attending college in San Diego at PLNU and wants to know if she can use her student ID to get the SoCal discount. Her driver's license says NorCal. Please advise

    Hi Kelli! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    Unfortunately, according to the current purchase and use terms, only Guests with a government-issued photo ID proving residence in one of the select ZIP Codes are eligible for the SoCal Special Ticket Offer or the Imagine Key. A student ID doesn't prove permanent residence in one of the select ZIP Codes and won't be accepted at the entrance as proof.

    I'm sorry if that's not the news you were hoping for today, but there is good news still to be had for those of us who love a good deal. There are usually some great discounts available even to non-residents. A good place to start looking for those deals is the Offers and Discounts page. Also, have your daughter update her profile page and opt in to receiving communications from Disney if she'd like to be among the first to hear about a new discount coming our way.

    Finally, if your daughter is going to be around this summer, the Disney Parks Blog just announced a fantastic admission ticket deal: All Guests can save with a 3-day Disneyland Ticket Offer for visits between June 10 and September 26, 2024. No government ID is needed to purchase or use this deal! Plus, the usage on these tickets doesn't need to be consecutive and they're eligible for upgrades like Park Hopper and Disney's Genie+ Service. Prices and terms on this special offer are subject to change and theme park reservations aren't guaranteed. Hopefully, this is just the offer to get your daughter into the parks more often to explore and enjoy the magic!

    Have a magical day.
