    Hi , Can my Florida resident cousin purchase tickets for my kids online? She would produce her proof of residency via online . Does she still need to accompany to the park entrance every day to show the residency proof?

    Hi, Swathi! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Only five more days 'til Disney! I bet your family is getting really excited. There's nothing better than having that vacation countdown tick down to the final moments!

    Your cousin (or in this case, more like your fairy godmother!) can buy tickets for your children who are under 18 using her Florida resident discount. In my experience, verifying Florida residency online is limited to the Guest who will use that ticket, so I'm not sure there would be a way to do so for the kids. But she can definitely give it a try!

    Otherwise, your cousin will only need to be present on the first day of your visit to provide her Florida resident ID and activate the children's tickets. Once they're activated, the kids can use the tickets for the rest of your trip without your cousin having to be there.

    A really easy way to get your tickets squared away is to meet your cousin at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs the day before you plan to hit the theme parks. It would likely be a lot more convenient for your cousin if she's not going to the parks with you, and it will save you precious park time since you'd be able to skip Guest Relations and head straight to the entrance touchpoints on your first park day. Plus, that way you can spend some time catching up and maybe treat her to a nice lunch at Disney Springs!

    I hope your family has an amazing visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, Swathi! Thank you so much for coming to see us, and please stop by anytime you have a question. We're always here to help other Guests plan magical vacations!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

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
