    I'm planning on visiting with a friend who is a Florida resident. He wants to pay for the park ticket and resort reservation for me so he can use his Florida resident discount even though I'm out of state. Is that possible?

    Hiya, Allison! 

    What a sweetheart of a friend you have! He's definitely trying to make your visit with him and at Walt Disney World something a bit more magical with his kind offer. 

    There are indeed special tickets, passes, and offers for Florida Residents who want to visit Walt Disney World. To purchase tickets using these special offers your friend will need to provide proof of Florida residency, which he may be able to do online. Ultimately, however, when you visit the theme parks, anyone over the age of 18 using a Florida resident discounted pass may be asked to show proof of Florida residency. This would include a Florida driver's license, state ID, or military ID from a Florida base, among other things. 

    There are often special offers available to the general public, and you may want to check those out to see if any of them would be of any help during your visit. There's a pretty awesome resort discount available to Disney+ subscribers available now that you may be able to take advantage of. And if your friend will be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel with you, as long as his name is on the reservation and he can show proof of Florida Residency at check-in, he'd be eligible for any resort discounts that were available to Florida Residents

    Happy planning, Allison! I hope you have an awesome visit with your friend.
