    Hi! I do not have an ID at all for the southern CA resident discount. I have a gas bill with my name and CA address on it. Will that be sufficient?

    Hello Friend! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Sorry for the delay in responding to you but it's been a wild time! The So Cal Resident tickets are a hot topic these days and so many people are interested in getting them! 

    To answer your question, unfortunately, a bill with a California address will not be sufficient proof of residency to purchase the So Cal Resident ticket. According to the Offer Details for this So Cal Resident ticket proof of eligible residency, including a valid government-issued ID is required for purchase and admission. I spoke to Cast Members who stated that at the ticket booths when you arrive, showing your California Driver's License with the ZIP codes ranging from 90000-93599 is ideal. I understand if that is not the answer you were looking for but I suggest if this discount is something you want you should consider beginning the process of getting this ID. The tickets are valid until June 2, 2024, so you do have time to get it. I hope the wheels of government at the DMV move swiftly for you!

    If for some reason this is not possible, maybe it is for the best as this ticket has blockout dates every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during January 2, 2024, and June 2, 2024. Some guests are not catching that fine print and it may be worth the extra cost for the convenience and flexibility of the Standard Theme Park Ticket. I would also look at the upcoming events for 2024 that were just recently announced. I have a goal to finally make it to the Lunar New Year Celebration! This event looks amazing and each year the delicious treats are so tempting! 

    I wish you many magical moments!
