    my aunt is a Florida resident & wants to buy my kids Disney world tickets as a present. She’s unable to come with us to the park though. Can she still pay Florida resident price for the children even though she won’t be with us at the park.

    Hi Eileen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How wonderful that you and your children will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort later this month. Your trip is just around the corner so you must be getting excited!

    Your aunt is very generous to want to purchase your children’s theme park tickets. While she may purchase Florida Resident tickets for herself, because your children are not living in Florida, she is unable to purchase that type of ticket for them. There are occasionally special ticket offers available to the general public, and you can find them on Disney’s Special Offer Page. For Summer 2019, there is a Summer One Ticket special offer that includes a one-day admission to each of the four theme parks and both water parks. Perhaps this might be a good option for your family.

    I recommend purchasing your theme park tickets in advance. With My Disney Experience, you can then link those tickets to each member of your party, and reserve FastPass+ selections. FastPass+ is included with park admission, and means a shorter wait for some of the most popular attractions, so be sure to take advantage of this amazing benefit! Download the My Disney Experience App on your phone, and you’ll be ready to make the most of your time in the parks.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation to Walt Disney World, Eileen. Please let us know what additional questions you have as you get ready for your trip. We are here to help!

    Have a Magical Day!
