    Hi there, I booked my tickets under my maiden name but when I reserved I put them under my married name which is what I go by. Will this cause an issue entering the park?

    Hi Olivia!

    Thank you so much for sending this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR at planDisney! We're so glad to meet you!

    This is a great question. If you purchased standard Theme Park Admission Tickets on Disneyland.com, through a vacation package, or even a third-party travel agent/agency, then no, the name on your Disneyland Ticket should not matter. Names aren't really checked against a list, they're more there to help keep all of your tickets in check should you be traveling with a larger party. (This way Donald doesn't end up with Mickey's ticket.) However, if you are visiting and are using a special promotional ticket that says it will be checked against a photo ID for verification, like a U.S. Military Promotional Park Hopper Ticket or a California Resident only offer, then yes, your name would either need to match your photo ID or you'd need to provide extra documentation (like your marriage certificate) to prove your name change. However, it sounds like you should be in the clEAR.

    Pro Tips: If you're over 21 and you'd like to imbibe in an adult beverage at any Disneyland Dining Location, make sure to bring a valid, non-expired, photo ID that lists both your address and your birthdate. (Disney's policy for Guests visiting from other countries is to bring your Passport as that'll be the most efficient document to double check.) And if you're the one in your group who made your Disneyland Resort Hotel room reservation, be sure to bring a photo ID that matches that name, too. If your ID matching your listed name is expired, you should be able to prove your new identity by providing your marriage license.

    I hope that this answer helped to clEAR up your question, Olivia! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
