    I was offered tickets for me and my family by a friend who purchased the tickets with her resident I’d would I be able to use the tickets even if she doesn’t attend.

    Hey there, Angel!

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to planDisney! It's great to hear you're planning for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! There's so much magic to look forward to when visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks. 

    I am going to take a bit of a guess (ok, a big guess) in hopes of helping you with your question. I am going to guess that your friend purchased Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets with her Florida resident address, and you are asking if you'll be able to use these theme park tickets if she does not visit the theme parks. 

    If I guessed completely wrong, I'll offer a suggestion to contact Walt Disney World Resort Ticketing at (407) 566-4985 and share with them the details of the tickets that were purchased. The friendly Cast Members on the ticketing team can help you with understanding how the tickets you're mentioning can be used. 

    If my guess was close, I'll share some information about Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets for Florida residents and what's required to use them. When Guests purchase theme park tickets as a Florida resident, they will need to present proof of Florida residency. Proof of Florida residency can include documents such as a valid Florida driver's license with a Florida address, a valid Florida state-issued ID card with a Florida address, and a valid Florida-based military ID. There are also alternative documents that can be presented as proof of Florida residency. Documents like auto registration, auto insurance, and utility bills are examples. A matching photo ID would need to be provided along with these alternative documents. You can check out the complete details by looking at the information for providing proof of Florida residency.  

    Angel, hopefully this is helpful to you. I can't be sure of whether I guessed correctly or not to help you with your question. What I can be sure of is this: there's lots of magic awaiting you at Walt Disney World Resort, and I hope you visit soon! If you have questions as you plan your visit, please do come back and ask us here at planDisney!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
