    My aunt (FL resident) will be taking kids to Disney. She is asking me if she will need to list the names of kids when buying tickets? And if she does, would it be a problem that kids are listed under my name on my Disney acc. Thanks

    Hey there, Olga! Welcome to planDisney!

    I bet your Mouseketeers are excited to come to Florida for a visit with the Best. Aunt. Ever! We Floridians can indeed buy tickets for kids under the age of 18. She'll just need to provide her proof of Florida residency at one of the Guest Relations locations at the Theme Park entrances or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. I recommend your aunt buy the tickets in advance on the Walt Disney World website for a couple of reasons. First, buying in advance means there won't be any surprises when they get to the Theme Parks. As she's going through the steps to make the purchase, she'll know exactly what information is needed. Since your kids are on your My Disney Experience account, though, you shouldn't make a second profile for them on your aunt's account. It's best to invite your aunt to connect to the Family & Friends feature on My Disney Experience, and then you can give her permission to make plans for your kids. I'm not sure if that will affect her ability to buy them Florida Resident tickets, but I think it's the best way to make your plans.

    Another reason it's important for your aunt to buy the tickets in advance is that she'll need to make Disney Park Pass reservations for the Theme Parks they plan to visit each day. She needs to have the tickets squared away before she's able to make reservations. Also, having you on her Family & Friends list will allow her to make those reservations for the kids. I think this should work, but if she hits any bumps in the road, she can always give Disney's Guest Relations a call. I've had many a Cast Member untangle some knots for me!

    One thing I know for sure, Olga, is that the kids will want to bring home some souvenirs from their Walt Disney World adventure! You might consider giving each of them their own Disney Gift Card to take along with them so they can pick out some treasures. You'll love hearing the stories behind each one!

    I hope this helps you and your aunt plan an amazing visit to the Walt Disney World Resort for your kids, Olga. Please come see us again if you have any more questions!

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
