    My aunt who lives in Florida is wanting to buy tickets for us with her Florida Residency rate. She won’t be going with us. She can pick the tickets up and give them to us. Will we be able to use the tickets if we live in Oklahoma?

    chEARs Alexandria!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like your aunt is about ready to win Relative of the Year when she suggests purchasing Walt Disney World tickets for the family!

    One of the best advantages of living close to the Mouse is the great discounts you get on Disney Theme Park passes, and it's fantastic that your aunt wants to take advantage of that. She can purchase them in person at any of the four theme park ticket windows, or online and then pick up at will call. Unfortunately, to activate Florida Resident tickets, she needs to be present and show proof of Florida Residency at pick up. All adults need proof of residency, so unless you have proof of residency in her household, she won't be able to get the discount on your passes.

    If you all have proof of residency, and she can purchase the passes for you, I know you said that she won't be coming with you to the parks. No problem! Once your tickets are activated, your aunt does not need to be there any of the other times that the tickets are valid. I sure bet she’d prefer to be enjoying the Magic with you, though!

    Maybe she can join you in the evening at a Disney After Hours event. My family and I are about to experience Disney’s Animal Kingdom after dark where nature glows in the night! I can’t wait to see Rivers of Light and jump on and off Kilimanjaro Safaris with little-to-no-wait!

    Alexandria, if you have any other questions, please come back! In the meantime, chEARs to a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
