Disneyland is set to reopen on April 30th for California residents:

Until further notice, only California residents may visit the parks, and in groups no larger than 3 households, in line with current state guidelines. Proof of residency may be required.

What kind of proof will be acceptable for entry? I've tried searching around their website but couldn't get more specific information. Obviously a drivers license should work but is anything else acceptable?

    Did you ask them? – DJClayworth Apr 24 at 18:31

    @DJClayworth I did email them, haven't got a response yet. Will post an answer when (or if) they do get back to me. – JonathanReez Apr 24 at 18:31

    Driver's license, passport, or passport ID card. What do you have and why do you think it may be a problem ? – Hilmar Apr 25 at 1:20
  • @Hilmar US passports don’t prove residency in a particular state. I’m asking because someone I know wants to go but they haven’t gotten around to changing their drivers license yet due to DMV being a mess. – JonathanReez Apr 25 at 13:30

    @JonathanReez more than that, US passports don't prove anything about residence whatsoever. In New York, official proof of address can include utility bills, bank statements, other account statements, other pieces of mail, and property records (lease, deed, tax records, etc.), but I have no idea what Disneyland would accept. – phoog Apr 25 at 14:12

Finally received an official response from Disney's email support:

A Government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver's license or state I.D.) or any documentation that has the Guests name and a California address will work as proof of residency.

Also, according to a Reddit comment:

I have heard several people confirm that today they were NOT CHECKING IDs. That could change but they were not today.

So in practice you might not get checked, at least for now.

    That can change any moment. I would not trust on it. Better bring the best proof you can think of. – Willeke Apr 30 at 20:49
