    My aunt has provided me with 2 of her comp tickets to use for our trip! Does she have to be with us to use them? She would also like to use her FL resident to get us our additional tickets for the family as we live in SC. Can she purchase them online?

    Hey there, Desiree! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    So I've been trying to claim the title of "Coolest Aunt Ever," but it sounds like your aunt wins by a mile! How fun that she's gifting you tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort. I just know you'll have a magical time, and you'll have your cool aunt to thank!

    I don't know what kind of complimentary tickets your aunt has, so I can't say for sure what restrictions may be attached to them. I'd start by going into My Disney Experience to see if you can link the tickets to your account. If you can get them linked, you should be able to use them. You might want to give Guest Relations a call to find out more about your specific tickets and what requirements they may have.

    Florida Resident tickets may be purchased online, but they need to be activated at Guest Relations before first use, and all adults planning to use Florida Resident tickets must show proof of residency at that time. If you have children under 18, your aunt can buy tickets for them, but she'd need to show proof of residency in person to activate them.

    Once you have your tickets taken care of, it will be time to start making FastPass+ selections for your favorite attractions! If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can make them 60 days in advance of your stay. Since you're coming in June, that's only a few days away!

    Desiree, I hope this helps you plan a magical Walt Disney World vacation with your family. Please come see us again if you have any more questions. And tell that cool aunt of yours I said hello!

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
