    Can my Dad in Florida purchase Disney tickets and gift them to an Oklahoma resident? And will he get a resident discount?

    Hiya, Lacey. Welcome to planDisney

    Lacey, I think it is so kind that your dad would like to purchase Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets and gift them to other people. Florida Residents do get a special discount on ticket purchases. I like to think of this as a big thank you from Mickey Mouse himself. However, these tickets are particular about who can use them.

    For anyone ages 18 and over who tries to use a Florida Resident ticket, they need to verify that they live in Florida either online when purchasing the tickets or in person at Guest Services before the tickets can be activated. So, if the person your dad is trying to buy discounted tickets for is 18 and over and does not live in Florida, this would not be possible. You can verify Florida residency in a variety of ways but the three most popular are:

    Valid Florida driver’s license (must have a Florida address)
    Valid Florida state-issued ID card (must have a Florida address)
    Valid Florida-based military ID

    Unless he is purchasing tickets solely for children who do not need to verify their residency, your dad won't be able to use his discount on anyone else's tickets that live in Oklahoma. But it is a really thoughtful idea! 

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me

    Happy holidays!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
