    We have family in the area (1hr away) who we invited but can’t get time off and they offered to buy our passes but I’m hearing things about Florida resident must be with us etc can you advise? Get they give them as gifts?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    It's great to have family in the Sunshine State, right? I love connecting with my Florida friends when I'm down for vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. Florida residents are lucky for a number of reasons and one of them is that they have the opportunity to purchase tickets and passes for themselves at special rates, and also for other guests in some cases, so let's have a look at how that will play into your upcoming vacation this spring.

    It's so generous of your family members to offer to buy your admission but unfortunately, they cannot purchase tickets or passes for out-of-state residents at the Florida resident rate. It is possible for Florida residents to purchase tickets and passes for guests under the age of 18, but they need either to be present to confirm their residency when the tickets are used for the first time or have their residency pre-authorized online. If you're looking for a deal on tickets to Walt Disney World Resort, I recommend checking out the Special Offers, Deals, & Discounts page which features all of the offers that are available for tickets, Resort Hotels, and more. Right now, Disney is offering the 4-Park Magic Ticket until September 2020, so have a look and see if that might work for your family!

    Have a magical day, Lisa!
