    Hello! I would like to use my Florida residency to purchase tickets for my out-of-state nieces and nephews and aunt n uncle Do I have to be with them when they arrive with their parents at Disney World for them to receive their tickets at will-call?”

    Hi, Mariza! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for stopping by with your question. I have a bit of information to share with you about the Florida Resident Disney Theme Park Tickets. All adults who purchase and plan to use Florida Resident Disney Theme Park Tickets will need to show proof of residency to activate the tickets. The tickets will then be assigned to that person and, as such, can only be used by that person. In your case, this means that you will not be able to provide Florida Resident Disney Theme Park Tickets for your family members. My understanding of it is that this rule applies to adults since they can provide the proof of residency, but does not apply to minors. So, you may be able to supply your nieces and nephews with the discounted tickets if they are minors. Still, to purchase the Florida Resident tickets for the minors, you will need to be present to have them activated and you will need to provide your proof of residency.

    If you have already purchased the Florida Resident Tickets for all of your family members, this can be easily remedied. They will just need to pay the cost of upgrading the tickets to regular Disney Theme Park Tickets. There are some Ticket Special Offers in which they may be interested. There is the Summer One World ticket offer, which provides one admission to each of the four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and two Disney Water Parks. That is a total of six admissions to be used! If you are either a Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus or Premier Annual Passholder, you could purchase 1-Day Park Hopper Tickets for your family through the Bring-a-Friend offer.

    I hope this information helps you plan a magical visit for your extended family! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
