    I have family coming in March, and I was wondering if I could use my resident discount to purchase tickets, even if they’re non residents?

    ChEARs David!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are in the running for Family Member of the yEAR with your offer to buy Walt Disney World Resort tickets for your visiting family! Unfortunately, unless your adult family members have proof of Florida residency, you can share your love of the Mouse, but not your discount! One caveat, though - if any of your family are minors (under the age of 18), you are more than welcome to buy discounted tickets for them. 

    You can purchase Florida Resident tickets in person at any of the four Theme Park ticket windows or online. If you buy the passes online, when you pick up the tickets at Will Call, all adults must present proof of Florida residency. 

    You are visiting during one of my most favorite times of the yEAR! Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival is the perfect place to take your extended family. The surroundings are magnificent, and the Outdoor Kitchens are delicious! If you have little ones, make sure to take them on a springtime scavenger hunt with Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration. Start your happy hunting by purchasing a map at Port of Entry, then buzz your way through the World Showcase on a fanciful adventure. Once your map is complete, return to the Port of Entry for a special prize!

    David, I hope this was helpful. I wish you a trip buzzing with magic!
