    I have family who are residents of Florida and wanted to gift us tickets to Disney World. Are they able to do this as we are not Florida residents?

    Hi, Michelle, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping by to see us with your question!

    As a lifelong Floridian myself, I can tell you there's almost nothing I enjoy more than sharing my love for Walt Disney World with my friends and family from out-of-state. It's such a treat to show them how we locals "do Disney." But while we can share our enthusiasm for the Most Magical Place on Earth, one thing we can't share is our Florida resident discount. All adults who plan to use a Florida Resident Ticket must provide proof of Florida residency at a Guest Relations location before the ticket can be activated and used. If you have children under 18, your relatives can buy tickets for them, but must be present to show their proof of residency to activate the tickets.

    Michelle, one way your family can give you the gift of Disney is with Disney Gift Cards. They're accepted all across Walt Disney World for things like merchandise, dining, and yes, even tickets! Disney Gift Cards can be ordered online or purchased in many retail locations all over Florida. I've even seen them displayed in my local Publix.

    Also, be sure to check out the Special Offers page on the Walt Disney World website for other discounts you may be able to take advantage of. There are almost always special rates available for Resort hotel stays, dining deals, or exclusive discounts for Disney Visa Cardmembers, so check back often for the latest offers.

    I know this wasn't quite the news you were hoping for, but I do hope it helps you plan a magical visit to Walt Disney World. Please come see us again if you have any more questions!

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
