    We were gifted SoCal resident tickets but are not SoCal residents. Can I pay the difference to change to a regular ticket before they expire??

    Hi there, Yesenia!

    Welcome to planDisney, it's great to meet you. I can't think of a gift more fun than Disneyland tickets, you must have a Fairy Godmother! But it sounds like the glass slipper you were given isn't quite the right fit, so let's see what I can do to help.

    As you said, if you aren't Southern California residents with proof of residence in an eligible zip code then you won't be able to use SoCal resident tickets. The best way to upgrade these tickets is to ask your Fairy Godmother to call the "Tickets" phone number listed here and upgrade them because they are the original purchaser. Once the tickets are upgraded you should be able to link them to your own Disney account and use them to make theme park reservations for your visit!

    Your tickets can also be upgraded in person at a park ticket window, however, that leaves you unable to make park reservations in advance so you might not be able to enter the parks when you want to. It's definitely safer to get it taken care of as soon as possible so you can plan your visit!

    Have you checked out all the new and exciting things happening at the Disneyland Resort for the Disney100 Celebration? I don't know if I'm more excited about the "Magic Happens" parade that just returned, or the reopening of Mickey's Toontown in March! I hope you'll be able to visit the parks real soon, Yesenia!

    Keep moving forward!
