    Hi! My friend lives in CA and I can’t figure out whether she’s allowed to buy tix for our group at the resident rate, or if she can only buy a ticket for herself and I have to buy separately for my son and I (who are not CA residents)?

    Hi there, Susanna! Welcome to planDisney. I'm always so excited to help a fellow Pennsylvanian and jumped at the chance to take on your question! 

    As someone who also used to live in California, just down the road from the Happiest Place on Earth, I know how hard it can be to see those California Resident Ticket Offers and not want to pack my bags and move back west! While those ticket offers are wonderful for our California friends, Guests are expected to show proof of eligible residency for purchase and admission. At the Main Entrance Gate, Guests are asked to present a valid government-issued photo ID showing an eligible zip code. Additionally, the current California Resident Ticket Offer only extends through September 15th, 2022, so the dates would not be available for your upcoming trip. 

    While I know that is not the news that you were looking to hear, you can always keep your eyes peeled on the Disney Parks Blog and @DISNEYLAND Instagram accounts for any news about special deals and promotions that might be upcoming. On the Disneyland website, you can also take a peek at the "Offers and Promotions" page, which you can find by hovering over the "Place to Stay" tab.

    Additionally, you might be excited to hear that you will be arriving just as Halloween Time is hitting its stride! This is such a fun and festive time of year to be in the parks, and not just because everything will have a pumpkin-flavored option! You and your son will be able to get a classic photo with the giant Mickey pumpkin at the top of Main Street, U.S.A., and you won't want to miss Jack Skellington's version of Haunted Mansion Holiday! A complete Nightmare Before Christmas take-over with sights (and smells!) you will never forget! Be sure to swing over to Disney California Adventure Park after the sun goes down for Guardians of the Galaxy - Monsters After Dark and take a spin through Radiator Springs Racers while all of your Cars favorites are dressed up and celebrating Haul-O-Ween!

    Susanna, I hope this was helpful in your planning! If you have any more questions, we are always here for you at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
