    Hi, my grandfather is a resident of Florida he wanted to buy tickets to the theme parks for us for our upcoming trip to Disney World. because of his age and health he is unable to come to the parks with us each day. Can he buy the tickets and transfer them

    Hi Maliha!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like your granddad is about to win Grandpa of the Year when he purchases Walt Disney World tickets for your family!

    One of the great advantages of living close to the Mouse is the excellent discounts we get on Disney Theme Park tickets. I love that your grandfather wants to take advantage of that! He can purchase tickets in person at any of the four Theme Park ticket windows, or online, and then pick up at will call. Unfortunately, to activate Florida Resident passes, he needs to be present and show proof of Florida Residency when the tickets are picked up. All adults (18 and over) require proof of residency to enjoy the discount. If your family includes minors, Granddad will be able to get the discount for their tickets, but sadly, the passes will be regular price for the adults.

    I know you said that he needs to skip out on some of the parks for health reasons. No problem! Once your tickets are activated, he does not need to be there any of the other times that the tickets are valid.

    If your grandpa is up to it, maybe he can join you in the evening at a Disney After Hours event. My family and I love Disney’s Animal Kingdom at night, where nature literally glows in the dark! Bonus that there is little-to-no-wait on popular attractions, which would probably make it easier for granddad!

    Maliha, if you have any other questions, please come back. In the meantime, chEARs to a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
