    Can a Florida family member buy Disney World theme park tickets as a gift for non-residents? We have a dad that lives there and wants to purchase them for our children. If we stay at the Disney resorts, can we still get the dining plan.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Maria! We’re so happy you stopped by to bring us your question.

    Florida residents can enjoy some pretty great deals on tickets and other special offers for guest that live in the sunshine state. These special offers are restricted to FL residents as proof of residency is required to take advantage of these deals. That being said, only adults over the age of 18 will need to show a valid ID with proof of residency. So, if your dad plans on purchasing tickets for your children, and they are under 18, that shouldn’t be a problem!

    Regarding the Disney Dining Plans, you can absolutely add these to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package when you stay at one of the wonderful Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. I love the convenience Disney's Dining Plans bring, especially for a budget conscious momma like myself. Having that budget item checked off allows me to fully enjoy my meal experiences during my vacation without having to worry about menu prices. Then I have more flexibility during my visit for enchanting extras and souvenirs.

    Maria, I hope this helped answer your questions. Be sure to come back and visit us again for any additional tips, advice, or questions you might have about your upcoming visit to the place where the magic is endless!

    See you real soon,
