    My friend is a Florida resident - is she able to buy tickets for my wife and I out who live out of state? If yes, is there a limit to how many tickets she can buy? I.e. If she buys a park hopper for my wife and I, can she still buy tickets for herself.

    Hi Ron!

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Great question! As a Florida Resident, I get this question a lot from my out of state relatives and friends. However it's not easy as it seems. Your friend can technically make the purchase, however you will not be able to active the tickets. You see, when you purchase the adult tickets, each adult will be required to present a valid Florida Drivers License or Florida ID Card or provide proof of Florida Residency, regardless of who purchases the tickets. Minors do not have to provide proof of residency. I recently purchased a ticket for my husband and although I was able to pay for it, the ticket was not active until we arrived to Epcot and provided his Florida ID at the ticket window. I wish it could be different, but at this time, the discounted tickets are limited strictly to Florida Residents. Hope this helps!

    Did you know? From time to time, Disney will release special offers such as free dining plans, special room rates and great ticket offers. This is a great way to save money on future vacations! Be sure to find these and other great discounts on this page: Special Offers

    It has been a pleasure assisting you Ron! Please feel free to send me any other questions you may have!
