    I'm a Florida resident, but I want to bring an out of state friend. Can I buy a florida ticket and a standard ticket on my account? Or is it recommend they buy their own ticket on their account? Trying to minimize the amount of accounts for planning

    Hiya Evan,

    Welcome to planDisney! Don’t tell my family, but some of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort vacations are friend trips. I love experiencing elevated dining experiences and the flexibility that comes with exploring the Most Magical Place on Earth with my besties.

    I know how important it is to de-complicate planning, but I hope I can help put your mind at ease. I highly recommend having your friend purchase their own Theme Park ticket. In my experience, buying one Theme Park ticket using the Florida Resident pricing and one using the standard pricing is way more complicated than having your friend purchase their own. I know you are concerned that having two separate My Disney Experience accounts will make planning more difficult, but it is straightforward for you to plan for both of you despite having two accounts. This is all due to the convenience of the Family and Friends list! By linking with your friend through the Family and Friends list, you can reserve dining, Enchanting Extras, Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel stays, and Disney Park Pass Reservations for both you and your friend from your account. Plans made for Guests on your Family and Friends list will sync into their accounts as you add them to them. Once your friend purchases their Theme Park ticket using their My Disney Experience account, you can add your friend to your Family and Friends List either using your linking code or manually; then voila, on to planning! On my most recent vacation, I traveled with three other adults, and with the help of the Family and Friends list, they didn’t have to lift a finger for planning. I managed the entire trip from my mobile device, including booking Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes each day. I’m pretty sure that no one else even glanced at their accounts throughout the entire five-day trip!

    I hope this was helpful, Evan! If you need anything else, please come back and see us.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
