    My grandchildren will be with me for the summer. So technically a resident during that time. Can I purchase resident tickets to take them to the theme parks? How would children show proof of residency?

    Hello, Donna! Welcome to planDisney

    Donna, you've got to be getting so excited for your grandchildren to spend the summer with you! That is such a special time and going to Walt Disney World with them is just going to make it even that much more magical. 

    Donna, only Guests 18 and over are required to show proof of residency when using Florida Resident tickets. This is great news for you! You will be able to purchase them for your grandchildren when they visit. However, you will need to show proof of residency for your ticket and anyone else 18 and older. You can show proof of residency, to activate the tickets, at any Guest relations window found at all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks and at Disney Springs.  When verifying your residency you can use a valid Florida driver's license with a Florida address, a valid Florida state-issued ID card or a valid Florida-based military ID. 

    When your grandchildren visit over the summer, Donna, I hope you'll consider taking them to Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park. You know all too well how hot the Florida sun can be a day splish-splashing around the water park is so much fun. Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park has a lot to offer kids of all ages which would be perfect for your grandkids. Plus, they have the quintessential water park snack there - mini donuts! There's no better way to end a day at a water park than fresh warm, cinnamon sugar donuts. It's sure to put a smile on your grandkids' faces. 

    I hope this helps, Donna. If you have any other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have fun and enjoy!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
