    Hi my mother in law is a Florida resident and wants to buy 2-day park-to-park tickets for her grandchildren (ages 10 and 13). She can't physically be at the park to activate the tickets, what are her options? Can she activate remotely?

    Hiya Oswaldo,

    Welcome to planDisney! It is so sweet that your mother-in-law wants to gift some magic to your little Mousketeers! What would we do without grandparents?!

    Based on your question, you know that Florida Residents can purchase Theme Park tickets at the Florida Resident rate for Guests under 18 as long as they can provide proof of residency at the time of activation. Unfortunately, these Theme Park tickets must be activated in person at the Theme Parks or through Guest Relations at Disney Springs. Since you mentioned your mother-in-law could not activate the tickets in person, she could not gift Florida Resident Theme Park Tickets. If she still wants to give your children Theme Park tickets, I recommend having her purchase Disney Gift Cards for the price of the tickets. Then you could use those Disney Gift Cards to purchase 2-day Theme Park tickets and save your mother-in-law a trip to Walt Disney World. The tickets would not be at the Florida Resident rate, but since your mother-in-law is not able to activate them in person, this is the next best option.

    I’m sorry not to be sharing happier news with you, Oswaldo. Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
