    My father in law lives in Florida. We will be visiting this summer. Can he buy tickets for himself and us at a discounted price being he is a Florida resident?

    Hey there, Sadie!

    Welcome to planDisney, where we always enjoy the chance to share our own Disney vacation tips and ideas as a way to help you plan your own best Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's exciting to hear you're planning to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Florida residents can take advantage of special ticket prices for Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets. For example, Florida residents can save on 3-day and 4-day tickets compared to price of those tickets for Guests who are not Florida residents. All adult Guests who purchase and use Florida resident theme park tickets will need to show proof of a Florida residential address before they use the tickets for theme park admission. Proof of Florida residency includes such documents as a valid Florida driver's license with a Florida address, a valid Florida state-issued ID card with a Florida address, and a valid Florida-based military ID. Other documents that can be presented to show proof of a Florida residential address include utility bills, automobile registration, and automobile insurance. You can take a look at the detailed requirements for presenting proof of Florida residency at this Help Center answer to frequently asked questions. Florida residents also have the opportunity to verify their Florida residential address online.

    Sadie, one tip I'll offer is to purchase your theme park tickets as well in advance as you can. You'll want to purchase your tickets and link them to your My Disney Experience account so that you can make your theme park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system. I also recommend taking a look at the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar before you purchase tickets. This will help you see that the theme parks have reservations available for the days you wish to visit.

    Here's wishing you a fun visit to Walt Disney World Resort. If you'd like recommendations for what to add to your plans, ask us here at planDisney. We're here for you and happy to help!

    Enjoy lots of Disney magic in your day today!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
