    Hi. Can my dad, who is a Florida resident, purchase tickets for my family coming in December? We are 2 adults and 2 kids (15 and 12). Can he purchase them in advance so we can select our fast passes? He will be joining us for the day in the park Thanks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Al! Thank you for visiting us with your question! 

    How considerate of your dad to want to purchase Walt Disney World tickets for your family using his Florida resident discount! As he must have told you, the special offers available to Florida residents are so convenient, they would make anyone jealous! However, those benefits cannot be extended to non-resident friends or family members. All tickets purchased at a Florida resident discounted price can be used as long as proof of residency is shown at the gate. Every guest would have to show a Florida resident ID at the gate so I am afraid you and your family will not be able to benefit from his discount. 

    Please visit this link to have a look at the various ticket options available. After you purchase your tickets, be sure to link them on your My Disney Experience account, so you can start making your FastPass+ selections (up to 30 days in advance of your visit or up to 60 days if you'll be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel). Once your dad has his tickets, be sure to connect through the app so that you can make plans together!

    I wish you and your family a wonderful vacation! Please come back with more and more questions as you plan every detail of your trip (FastPass+, advanced dining reservations, Memory Maker, etc.), it'll be our pleasure to help you!

    See ya real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
