    I live in Southern California … can I use the SoCal discount to purchase tickets to take my grandchildren that live in Arizona?

    Hey there, hi there!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for dropping by with a question for us! How exciting for you to be taking your grandchildren to the Happiest Place on Earth! I have a young niece and nephew and I absolutely love joining them for visits to the Disneyland Resort. I've been dubbed "the most fun uncle ever" and know how much fun it is to experience the Parks through their young eyes.

    The Southern California Resident Ticket Offer is a great deal but is only meant for Southern California Residents. In addition to having a billing address within the valid ZIP codes 90000-93599, adult Guests must present a government issued photo ID that verifies their address when entering the Parks for the first time using their tickets. Children are not required to show ID, however.

    If you can schedule their visit just one day earlier and they are under the age of 10, consider the Kids' Special Ticket Offer that is currently going on until March 10, 2024. It's an even better deal than the SoCal Resident Ticket and is proving to be quite popular! With this ticket, children ages 3-9 may get a 1 Day Ticket with admission to 1 Park. I would recommend making sure that reservations are still open because as special offers like this near expiration, reservations can become scarce.

    The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will be going on during your visit! Fancy culinary dishes might not appeal to younger children, but I'm sure you'll be able to find something to whet their appetites (and hopefully yours, too!) at this event. Check out the Foodie Guide to begin planning your meals and consider a Sip and Savor Pass so you all get to try a little of everything!

    Fun Fact: Mickey Mouse is best associated with Disneyland Park, but did you know that Anaheim had a mascot too? Andy Anaheim was a little cartoon with the body of "A", ant-like antennae, and a nose like Mickey Mouse. He was a gift to the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce from Walt Disney in 1953 to represent the city's future growth. In fact, Anaheim was "America's Hub of Happiness," so Disneyland was The Happiest Place on Earth, of course!

    I hope that this answer was helpful for you in your planning. Please do not hesitate to stop by again if you have any more questions for us. I hope you have a wonderful and magical visit with your grandchildren! Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
