    My cousins are planning on visiting and they are under 18 and NOT Florida residents, am I still allowed to buy them the FL discounted tickets? Does it matter that they are not my children?

    Hi Grace! Thank you for stopping by planDisney!

    Can you believe that your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is only a few days away?  Very soon you and your family will be walking right down the middle of Main Street U.S.A. headed to all your favorite attractions and shows like "it's a small world", Space Mountain, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  On top of the excitement of the rides, you'll also have the joy of seeing the Resort decked out for the holiday season.  Make sure to take some family photos in front of the giant 65-foot Christmas tree at Magic Kingdom!

    When it comes to purchasing Theme Park Tickets for you and your family you will find that the Walt Disney World Resort website states that each Florida resident planning to use a Florida Resident Disney Theme Park Ticket must be able to provide proof of Florida residency if they are 18 years of age or older.  Because minors under the age of 18 do not need to provide proof of residency you will be able to purchase your younger cousins their Theme Park Tickets with your Florida resident discount. 

    The only caveat is that you, as the purchaser and Florida resident, must be with the children when they activate their Theme Park Tickets.  If you are not planning on attending this magical family reunion at The Most Magical Place on Earth, every member of the family will need to purchase Standard Theme Park Tickets.

    I hope that you and your cousins are able to have a magnificent time at Walt Disney World Resort. Enjoy every moment of your vacation!
