    I recently purchased tickets for my daughter and a friend. The friend can no long fly out to visit. Can I transfer the ticket to my other daughter?

    Hiya, Jodi!

    I’m sorry to learn your friend won’t be able to go with you when you visit the Disneyland Resort. But I’m happy to hear that your other daughter may be able to go in her place. Family fun days at The Happiest Place on Earth are simply magical!

    Yes, in some cases, it’s OK to transfer a ticket to another Guest, even if their name is not linked to it when the ticket was purchased. There are some important requirements to keep in mind:

    1. The ticket must not have been used by another Guest already. For example, once a multi-day ticket has been used by a given Guest, only that person is allowed to use the remaining days of that ticket.
    2. If the ticket is restricted in some way, the Guest using the ticket must still be eligible to use it. For example, a Guest using a Summer 2022 California Resident 3-Day Ticket must be a current resident of California or northern Baja California and be able to provide proof of residency, including a photo ID for adults.
    3. Tickets may not be resold for commercial gain.

    Tony’s Tip: I had a similar circumstance not too long ago. At the last minute, a member of our party was unable to go on a trip to the Disneyland Resort. So we gave their unused ticket to a friend that lives in Southern California. We texted a screenshot of the Disney eTicket to our friend, who used it to enter the park and meet up with us after we had already entered that day. Even though our friend’s name was not linked to the ticket, it worked out OK. The Cast Member at the park entrance took a photo of our friend and linked it to the ticket. That way, our friend could continue using the ticket, including for park re-entry, without having to match the name on the ticket.

    I hope you and your daughters have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Jodi!
