    I live in Florida and want to buy my children tickets to go with someone else because I am working. The people they are going with are not Fl residents...is this possible? They say there has to be an adult Fl resident at the time if visit to verify?

    Hi Kim!

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  As a Floridian and a mom of three, I am happy to assist you with this question! I want to say yes, they can go with someone else, however there are a few things to consider if you are not going to be present. First, remember that when a Florida Resident purchases discounted tickets, in order to activate them, they need to provide proof of residency either online or upon arrival in order to activate all tickets including the child tickets. Minors do not have to provide proof of residency. Also, keep in mind that upon entering the parks, the minor child must tap in at the touch points. If there are any issues with the ticket, (especially if it is a ticket purchased on the annual pass payment plan), the Florida Resident must be present to resolve the issue with Guest Services. I mention this because it happened to me with my niece. I took her to the Magic Kingdom and she had a Florida Resident Annual Pass, however there were issues with it and since I was not the adult who purchased it on the payment plan, Guest Services couldn't speak to me about the ticket. I ended up purchasing a new ticket for her. 

    Did you know? As a Florida Resident, you have many special offers available to you!  For more information, please visit this page: Special Offers.

    Kim, thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please feel free to send me any other questions you may have.
