Do I need to show any form of ID to enter the... | planDisney (2023)

Hi Mali, welcome to planDisney!

If you have purchased standard theme park tickets, a form of identification is not needed. When you visit the Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Turnstiles, the Cast Members there will scan your tickets, and take a picture of each Guest. This is how the tickets will be assigned to the Guests.

However, if you purchased one of the current ticket offers available for California Residents residing within ZIP codes 90000-96199, and Northern Baja California residents within ZIP codes 21000-22999, then you will need to provide a valid government-issued photo ID showing an address within a valid ZIP code for proof of residency.

I hope that helps to clarify when you will need a form of identification when it comes to theme park tickets!

Also, I have a bit of news to share. The Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever fireworks will be ending their limited-time runs on September 1, 2022! If you are able, I highly recommend visiting the Disneyland Resort to catch these great nighttime experiences one last time before they fly away.

See ya real soon!
