As the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration continues into 2016 and Season of the Force takes guests into the Star Wars galaxy in Tomorrowland, Disneyland Resort starts the new year with a special ticket offer for Southern California residents. For a limited time, residents may choose from options for two or three days of magic and adventure at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks at special prices.

‘Paint the Night’ Parade at Disneyland Park

To help Southern California residents enjoy all the fun, special 2-day and 3-day Southern California Resident tickets* are available beginning January 6, 2016. The offer has four purchase options: a 2-day ticket with choice of one park per day for $149; a 2-day Park Hopper ticket for $189; a 3-day ticket with choice of one park per day for $179, or a 3-day Park Hopper ticket for $219.

With these limited-time tickets, Southern California residents have the flexibility to make memories with family and friends over two or three days, from January 6 through May 19, 2016.* (Dates blocked are March 20 – April 2, 2016.) The sooner a purchase is made, the more time guests will have to return for a second or third visit.

These special 2-day and 3-day tickets are an ideal way to catch all the fun, but they won’t be available for long. Southern California residents must purchase tickets by May 19, 2016. Tickets expire after May 26, 2016, and blockout dates apply. They can be purchased at, The Disney Stores, Vons and other retail locations, as well as any Disneyland Resort ticket booth. Guests who purchase tickets online may print their tickets at home. When purchased in advance, 3-day tickets include one Magic Morning** early entry to Disneyland park, which provides an extra hour of play on select days before the park opens to the general public. This benefit is not available to tickets purchased at Disneyland Resort ticket booths.

  • Can a So Cal resident buy additional tickets for non-California residents?

  • Can a So Cal resident buy additional tickets for non-California residents?

  • Please extend to North California and we will come on cold days not in school holiday time 🙂

  • So can I visit one day, on park with my husband and on another day visit with my son?

  • Candice, 2 day 1 park means 1 park each day. So you use them on different days. There is the option of 2 days with park hopping as well if you want to go in both parks each day.

  • I verified with them by phone that the So Cal tickets do not have the 13 day rule. As long as you use all 2 or 3 by 26 May (exc blackouts).

  • This may be a silly question, but do the 2 day 1 park tickets have to be used at the same park on both days? Or can I come to one park on one day and come back within 14 days to the other park?

  • Brett-that is normal for all Disney tickets-they must be used within 13 days of first use…….

  • Hi Erin! I just called the Parks and it sounds like if you get a multi-day ticket from this offer, the days you attend can be no more than 14 days apart. Can you confirm this? Thanks!
