    housesitting for some Florida friends and would like to take the kids while we are there. Can they buy tix for kids ahead of time as residents even though they won’t be with us at the park? Not tix for my husband and I just kids tix.

    You’re as welcome as can be at planDisney, Athena!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question for us. 

    You have the right idea Athena: no trip to Florida is complete without visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth! It is so kind of you to help your pals out and they are so kind to offer to purchase Walt Disney World Resort Florida resident tickets for your little Mouseketeers!

    I called spoke to a wonderful Cast Member at New Tickets and was told that adults who purchase Florida Resident tickets must be able to verify their Florida residency, and children ages 17 and younger must be with an adult who can verify Florida residency on their behalf. They can purchase the tickets ahead of time, but they would have to pick up the tickets at any Guest Relations locations with your Mouseketeers. I would suggest you come while your friends are in town so you may all go to the Guest Relations at Disney Springs to pick up the tickets together. That way, you’re also able to enjoy the shopping and dining experiences available at Disney Springs together! Proof of Florida residency includes any one of the following photo identifications: Florida driver’s license, Florida state-issued ID card with a Florida address, or a Florida-based military ID.

    Before purchasing the tickets, I would encourage you to check the Disney Park Pass Availability Calendar for Theme Park availability during the dates you’d like to go! These reservations are required along with your Theme Park tickets to enter the Theme Parks. You can make your Disney Park Pass reservations here.

    Athena, should you think of any more questions for us about your trip, your pals at planDisney are all ears! I hope you and your family have the most enchanting vacation together at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
