    My parents own a home in Florida, but do not have Florida Licenses. Are they able to verify with utility bills, then purchase Theme Park tickets as gifts for their grandchildren even if they are unable to attend the park with us?

    Hello Zachary,

    Warm greetings from a fellow Floridian and welcome to planDisney! I'm delighted to help with your question about theme park tickets, as I've personally navigated the Florida Resident ticket purchase process.

    Your parents are considering a wonderful gift by purchasing Disney theme park tickets. Being a Florida resident myself, I can share some insights on the process. For residency verification, utility bills are a perfect choice. These should be recent (no older than two months) and show a Florida address. A matching government-issued photo ID is also necessary for this step. You can find more detailed information on what documents are accepted by visiting this page: Proof of Florida Residence.

    It's really important to understand how Florida Resident tickets work before making any decisions. With these special tickets, the person who's a Florida resident needs to be there in person at the park when the tickets are being used. Also, each adult who's using a ticket has to show their own proof that they live in Florida. This means if you have any grandchildren who are 18 or older, they'll need to show their own Florida proof of residency – they can't use their grandparent's. If this sounds like it might be a bit tricky for your family, you might want to think about getting the standard theme park tickets instead. They're simpler since you don't need to prove Florida residency, making it easier for everyone to get into the park and start enjoying the day.

    I hope this information helps you and your family plan a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World, filled with unforgettable moments and magical experiences!
