    I am a Florida resident and Dorchester would like to get my 5 grandchildren annual passes to Disney. Once I activate them, can they visit the parks with their parents or do I have to be with them when they visit?

    Hiya Martha,

    Welcome to planDisney! A gift of a year of magic at Walt Disney World Resort sounds like such a lovely gift for your grandchildren. With an Annual Pass (currently, only the Disney Pixie Dust Pass is available for Florida Residents), your grandchildren will enjoy Walt Disney World Resort so much more and make many incredible memories.

    Now on to your question! I completely understand the confusion regarding whether or not you need to be present each time one of your grandchildren wants to visit the Theme Parks. As long as you are present at the time of purchase and activation, you don't need to visit with your grandchildren every time (unless, of course, you want to). So Hakuna Matata! As a quick reminder, if your grandchildren are under 18, you can purchase them Disney Pixie Dust Passes. However, if they are over 18, they must show proof of residency to buy and activate their Annual Pass.

    I hope this was helpful, Martha. Before I let you go, did you know that you can verify your FL residency online at checkout without going to a ticket counter? If you have an accepted proof of residence, you can verify your Florida Residency from your home computer and eliminate the wait in line at the Theme Parks (or Disney Springs).

    Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
