    My parents(FL residents) want to buy Disney Gold Passes for my 2 kids. If my kids have Disney Gold but I have Disney Platinum(not FL resident) can I take my kids to Disney without their grandparents or do they always have to go with a FL resident?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Wendy!

    What generous grandparents your mouseketeers are lucky to have! I have my grandmother to thank for my love for Disney. She brought me and my sister on our first visit. It was a vacation I will never forget. I was instantly captivated, and I never looked back; I was an official, self-proclaimed, Disney nerd at the age of six! And my favorite part was sharing those memories with my precious grandma. It was truly magical! 

    Wendy, once your littles have their Annual Pass linked to them on your My Disney Experience, their MagicBands will be active and ready to go. It won’t be necessary for their grandparents to be there with them aside from when the passes get activated for the first time. They will have to be there with you to show proof of residency. But after that first visit, you are good to go!

    I hope you enjoy a year of magic and memories with your Annual Pass. Be sure to familiarize yourself with all the exclusive benefits and discounts you can enjoy as an AP. I have the benefits and discounts page bookmarked on my cell, so I can access it quickly and easily anytime I’m enjoying the magic.

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. We hope to see you back again with any additional questions or for planning tips or advice.

    Have a magical day and see ya real soon!
