    Can a florida resident buy discounted disney tickets for a non resident? If so, how many tickets can they purchase and what is the cost?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there Emily! Thanks for stopping by planDisney where you're always welcome as can be. I'd be happy to answer your question as fast as you can spell M-I-C-K-E-Y.

    Ah to be a resident of the Sunshine State! While Elsa is making things frosty up north, the weather in Florida is almost always Olaf-approved. Best of all, when you're neighbors with the main mouse himself, you are eligible to purchase tickets and book resort rooms at special rates. My parents reside part-time in Florida, so my family has become quite familiar with the rules regarding these coveted ticket deals. Because admission costs vary by start date and ticket add-on options, your Florida resident friends will want to log into their My Disney Experience accounts to view the exact pricing scale and available specials for their dates. 

    To redeem Florida resident admission, all Guests ages 18 and older must show identification and proof of residency upon entry into the theme parks, meaning out-of-state adults are not able to take advantage of these tickets. My parents are, however, able to treat my little Mouseketeers (ages 4 and 6) to their Disney days, since they are too young to show identification. Your inquiry is a popular one, and has been recently discussed by my Florida resident planDisney friends, Veronica and Kathy

    Since my husband and I do not qualify for Florida resident tickets, we like to watch for vacation packages and specials available to the general public. Currently, there's a fantastic deal that offers two extra days added to your ticket on select 4-night room and ticket packages. Because everyone staying in a room must be part of the same vacation package, if not all Guests need tickets as part of a package, you might want to consider a room-only reservation. We usually go that route when my little ones have been gifted tickets by their grandparents, and my husband and I purchase tickets separately. I love that I always have several options and plenty of flexibility when booking a Walt Disney World vacation. 

    I hope this is helpful, Emily. As you continue planning your magical getaway, come visit us if more questions arise. We love to help, and we're all ears!
