    My mom lives in Tampa, is she able to purchase our tickets prior to us coming? Does she need to come in park each day to activate the kids tickets? We are arriving 9/28, but not planning to do park until 9/29. will FL discount still be eligible?

    Hi there Jade!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by as you prepare for your fall getaway to the Most Magical Place on Earth. I'd be happy to help with your Florida resident ticket inquiry.

    My parents live part-time in the Sunshine State and love being one of Mickey Mouse's closest neighbors. Perks like exclusive Annual Passes and special resort discounts are wonderful and meant for those who reside in Florida. Your mother can purchase tickets for herself and her young guests, who she plans to accompany to the theme parks. All visitors 18 and older redeeming Florida resident tickets must show ID and proof of residency to activate their tickets. As long as her grandchildren are still minors, it won't be a problem for them to use tickets she purchases as a resident, so long as you all enter the parks together at the start of your trip.

    Your September arrival coincides with the end of the Florida Resident Discover Disney Ticket use period. These special tickets are only valid through September 28th and cannot be used to enter the theme parks on September 29th. Ticket, resort, and vacation package deals constantly change, so I recommend monitoring the special offers page to see what is available for your visit. And speaking of keeping an eye on things, if you're a fan of spooky season, stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for news regarding this year's Halloween happenings! Your adventure takes place right in the middle of Walt Disney World's annual fall festivities.

    I hope this is helpful, Jade! Best wishes for a memorable visit with your sweet mom. If there's anything else we at planDisney can do to make your vacation even more magical, don't hesitate to reach out again. We'd be delighted to assist you!

    Have a bibbidi bobbidi beautiful day,
