    We are Florida residents and plan to visit with our grandchildren. They are under age 18 and NOT Florida residents. Can we purchase discounted tickets for them as well?

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Bruce!

    You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.  I'm always a little envious of all you Florida Residents. I can't imagine anything more magical than being able to jump in the car and drive to Walt Disney World Resort in just a few hours (or less!).  I think the only thing that could make it better is bringing your family along to make memories with you –– how exciting that you'll be sharing all the excitement of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration with your grandchildren during an upcoming visit!

    As a Florida Resident, you can take advantage of great deals on Walt Disney World theme park admission each time you visit. But the best part? You're welcome to purchase Florida Resident tickets for your grandchildren who are under the age of 18, as well, even if they don't reside in the State of Florida.  Just be aware that in order to use these tickets, you'll need to provide proof of your Florida Residency.  If you have a Florida Driver's license, state-issued ID card, or Florida-based military ID, you can verify your residency through the Walt Disney World website, but this must be done at the time you purchase your tickets.  This is a great way to save some time when you arrive at a Walt Disney World theme park on your first day, so I always recommend online verification, if possible.  If you don't have a valid Florida ID, or if you choose to purchase your tickets from a different source, you can also verify your residency by presenting valid proof of a Florida residential address at any Walt Disney World Guest Relations location or theme park ticketing window.

    Once those tickets have been verified, you'll be free to use them as you please.  If other adults are traveling with you and your party wants to split up, know you don't have to be with your grandchildren each time they enter the park. However, I do recommend making sure you're present with your proof of residency the first time the tickets are used.  That way, in the unlikely event of an issue with the ticket at the main entrance, a Cast Member will be able to easily assist you and send you off for a day of magical adventures.

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney, Bruce.  I'm wishing you and your grandchildren lots of pixie dust during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

    See Ya Real Soon,
