    My dad is a Florida resident, and I know I cannot use his discount, but can he purchase park admission for my son (4 years old) with his in state discount? Also if he books the hotel room with his discount, can we stay in the room too as non-residents?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Becky! You’re going to have such a great time with your family during your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Your dad can absolutely purchase theme park tickets for his grandson. He can also use his Florida Resident status to book a Disney Resort hotel room using Special Offers available to residents. You will be pleased to know that you and your son can stay in his room with him. Hooray! Just remember that he still has to show Proof of Florida Residency when activating theme park tickets and when checking in to his Disney Resort hotel room.

    I recommend that your dad look for Special Offers and promotions available to Florida Residents when he is starting to make his vacation plans. But don’t worry if he doesn’t find an offer right away.  He can always modify a Disney Resort hotel room reservation to add an offer by calling (407) 939-1937 and speaking to a friendly Resort Reservation Specialist.

    Becky, I hope this information is helpful. If you have any other questions, you can always come back to see us. Helping you with the details of your next visit is our pleasure!
