    My aunt who lives in Pensacola, FL is wanting to buy my familty tickets to go to Disney World as a present with her Florida resident discount, can we still use these tickets? She wouldn't be attending with us.

    Hello there, Melinda!

    You are so lucky to have such an awesome aunt who wants to purchase Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets for you and your family. It sounds like she’d make a great Fairy Godmother too!

    Melinda, unfortunately, your aunt won’t be able to purchase Florida Resident tickets for your family since only Guests currently residing in Florida can take advantage of the Florida Resident discounts. Anyone using a Florida Resident ticket needs to show valid proof of residency if they are over the age of 18 and a guardian is present to show their proof of residency for Guests under the age of 18. 

    Your aunt may be interested in looking into non-Florida Resident deals that she can gift on the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts website. Alternatively, if your aunt knows that you are planning on visiting the Walt Disney World Resort on a specific date, maybe she could treat your family to a special experience found on the Enchanting Extras Collection website. I had a family member gift us Seasonal Event tickets or Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties: Post-Party tickets in the past, and those experiences were some of the highlights of our trip.  

    Melinda, you may want to send your aunt the planDisney podcast gift guide episode. My fellow panelists offered so many great ideas on how to gift Disney experiences for the holidays. 

    Like Disney’s Cinderella, I hope you have a ball during your future Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Feel free to reach back out if you’re looking for any other tips. 

    May the magic be with you!
