    Can I gift someone a discounted California resident tickets even though they do not have a California I.D? Or do I have to drop them off and show my I.D and then leave for they can enter the park.

    Hi there, Angelica,

    Aww, what a sweet gift. Giving the gift of a visit to The Happiest Place on Earth sounds positively magical. I wish I could be as kind as you.

    While it is allowed to give California resident promotional tickets to others, each promotional ticket holder must still be eligible to use that ticket and have the required government-issued ID to verify eligibility. So you would not need to be present to allow eligible California residents to use tickets you gift to them, you might want to be available for Guests using gifted tickets that may need to be upgraded if they don’t have the necessary identification. Or you may also choose to use those tickets yourself, perhaps by modifying the associated theme park reservations if needed, and gift new, non-promotional tickets instead.

    Although this may not have been the news you were hoping to receive, I hope that you still feel excited to spread your special form of magic with others. You are the type of person who makes hearts jump for joy.

    Thank you for your question here at planDisney, Angelica. I hope you’ll stop by again if you have any more questions we may be able to answer.
