I'm surprised the residency part would apply to every guest and not just the person buying the passes. Seems awfully cumbersome for CM's to adminster. Besides, are they going to ID a 5 year-old?
I saw the small print, too, but figured the government ID language was because they take photographs of guests who have a multi-day park ticket, which would obviously apply to these 2 and 3-day SoCal Discount tickets.
I just can't see the logic behind turning away a family of 4, plus one guest from out of town because the out of town guest (who could be a visiting child) can't produce a government ID showing CA residency. Doesn't make sense.
Perhaps a Front Gate CM will chime in soon to clarify.
