    I'm a new resident in Florida and my kids and grandkids are planning a visit in January. I was thinking of getting tickyfor Disney can I get a discount on tickets if I buy them as Christmas gifts do I need to go also

    Welcome to planDisney and welcome to Florida, John! Living in the “Sunshine State” definitely has its perks and a big one of those perks is being Mickey’s neighbor!

    You can absolutely gift Florida Resident theme park tickets for the Walt Disney World Resort to any of your grandchildren who are under the age of 18. In order for them to be able to use the tickets, you would need to show Proof of Florida Residency. There are a few ways to do that. You can do so online. Just fill out the “Your Florida Resident Information” form when you check-out. You can also verify residency via your My Disney Experience app when you complete the “Customize Your Tickets” step.  

    If you will be in the Orlando area, you can visit the Disney Springs Guest Services location, and you can also verify residency at any ticket window at all four theme parks. 

    If you have verified the tickets before you gift them, you would not have to be present when they are used. If you have not, you would have to complete the process the day they get ready to use the tickets. 

    John, theme park tickets are a wonderful Christmas gift! If you have any more planning questions, feel free to come back to see us. Helping you with all the details of your next magical visit is our pleasure!
