    Hello, My dad is a Florida resident and would like to buy Disney World tickets for myself and 2 children who plan on coming there in June. Unfortunately he is unable to accompany is due to him having to work. Is he still able to purchase the tickets for us

    Hi ya Tiara!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like your dad is about ready to win Grandpa of the Year when he purchases Walt Disney World tickets for your kiddos!

    One of the best advantages of living close to the Mouse is the great discounts you get on Disney Theme Park tickets, and I love that your dad wants to take advantage of that. He can purchase them in person at any of the four theme park ticket windows, or online and then pick up at will call. Unfortunately, to activate Florida Resident tickets he needs to be present and show proof of Florida Residency when the tickets are picked up. All adults need proof of residency, so make sure you have necessary documents for your ticket.

    I know you said that he needs to skip out on some of the parks for work reasons. No problem! Once your tickets are activated, your dad does not need to be there any of the other times that the tickets are valid. I sure bet he’d prefer to be enjoying the Magic with you, rather than be at work!

    Maybe he can join you in the evening at a Disney After Hours event. My family and I are about to experience Disney’s Animal Kingdom after dark where nature glows in the dark! I can’t wait to see Rivers of Light and jump on and off Avatar Flight of Passage with little-to-no-wait!

    Tiara, if you have any other questions, please come back! In the meantime, keep on dreaming as dreamers do!
