    my cousin wanted to buy tickets for my two girls but will not be going to the parks but is a Florida resident, does she have to be present when tickets are picked up.

    Hi there, Yakisha!

    I'm so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    Your cousin sounds wonderful! How kind of your cousin to buy your daughters Theme Park Tickets to Walt Disney World Resort. Your girls are going to have the most magical time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Florida Resident Disney tickets may be purchased online and picked up at Will Call. They can also be purchased at all four Park ticket windows. I'd like to mention a small detail that might be important, depending on how many days you are spending at the parks: if it is a one day Theme Park ticket, there is no price difference in a one day pass between a Florida resident and non-resident ticket. However, if the Theme Park ticket is for two days or longer, the Florida Resident tickets are less costly.

    For the purchase of a Florida Resident park ticket, an adult at least 18 years of age must be present during the time the tickets are picked up and show proof of Florida Residency. Your cousin or another Florida Resident would have to be there during the time your family is picking up the tickets. Once the tickets have been picked up, your cousin would not have to stay or even enter the parks. For instance, if your family will be going for three days, your cousin would only have to be present for the first day to pick up the tickets. During the next two days, your family could go on your own.

    I encourage you to create a My Disney Experience account if you haven't already done so. This way, you can start planning your FastPass+ selections and make your advance dining reservations. Making these magical selections means your family waits less in lines and spends more time having fun!

    Yakisha, I hope you and your family have an enchanting vacation full of memorable moments and magic!
