    I bought Florida resident tickets but now some of the guest can’t come, can I get a refund? Or transfer them to a non resident and pay the difference?

    Hiya Yazmin!

    Welcome to planDisney, the sunniest place on the internet! I am so glad you asked us this question today and that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the World's Most Magical Celebration! And as a Canadian, I wish I were in your place, Yazmin. Florida's year-round sunny and warm weather sounds like an absolute dream. 

    I am sorry to hear that some of your guests will not be able to join you on your magical vacation, and I hope you will be able to enjoy the magic together real soon! The good news is that, yes, Florida Resident theme park tickets can be "upgraded" to a regular theme park ticket. However, this cannot be done online as you would when upgrading your theme park tickets to be longer or to include the Park Hopper Option. Indeed, you will have to either contact a Cast Member via chat, email or phone or stop by Guest Relations at the main entrance of any of the four parks. Keep in mind that additional fees may apply and that you will need to make your theme park reservations to be able to visit any of the theme parks. However, you can still make your theme park reservations before "upgrading" your tickets! Otherwise, you could simply not use the tickets and use them as a credit for a future trip. Indeed, the value of Disney theme park tickets does not expire, and they can be deducted from future theme park ticket purchases of equal or higher value! 

    Now, Yazmin, let's talk about all the wonderful things you will be able to experience on your upcoming Disney trip! As mentioned, you will be able to soak in all of the 50th-anniversary magic and watch the themed entertainment, the brand new fireworks, and try out the celebratory treats and food offerings. Plus, you will also arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort just in time for the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, which ends on July 4th, 2022. Depending on how long you will be staying, you might even get to experience some of Disney's Fourth of July celebrations. Since we do not have details on whether or not the special fireworks will return yet, I would highly recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, as they are always among the first to report on returning offerings! 

    I hope this was helpful, Yazmin, and that you and your loved ones will have the best day ever on your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your vacation, or as locals call it, "stay-cation," please don't hesitate to reach out. We are always happy to help, and your magical questions brighten up our days!

    Have a magical, sunny day,
