    Hi! We will be going to the parks in August with a Florida resident friend (yay!), who wants to buy the tickets for us, because of the discount that he has as a Florida resident. Would that be possible as I am not from Florida? Many thanks!

    Hi, Maria Agustina! What an incredibly thoughtful gesture from your friend! There are some great benefits and discounts afforded to Florida residents planning to visit Walt Disney World Resort. Unfortunately, those benefits only extend to Florida residents, not to their non-resident friends and family members that may be visiting along with them. All Florida Resident Tickets can only be activated by showing proof of residency for the guest that plans to use them.

    I recommend you take a look at the Ticket Guide to see which ticket type may best fit your needs during your trip. Disney Theme Park Tickets can be purchased online and immediately linked to your My Disney Experience account. Be sure to purchase and link your tickets well in advance of your trip as FastPass+ selections can be made up to 30 days in advance of any day you plan to visit a theme park. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then you may make these selections up to 60 days in advance of your check-in date. There are some attractions that see their FastPass+ availability go faster than you can say, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!" So you will definitely want to get those tickets sooner, rather than later! You will be able to make up to three complimentary FastPass+ selections at a single park for each day you plan to visit. If you would like some recommendations on which to choose, feel free to stop by and chat with us again.

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to us and please let us know if you have any others as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
