    Hi planDisney! My father is a Florida resident. Our family is NJ residents. Can my father purchase FL resident tickets for my children (his grandchildren) to use at Disney? Does he need to present to activate the ticket? Can he not go to the park?

    Hello there, Simon!

    This former Jersey girl is so excited that you stopped by planDisney. Like Cinderella’s evil stepsisters, I always get jealous of my sister being a Florida resident since there are often special tickets, passes and offers available. 

    Simon, unfortunately, only people currently residing in Florida can take advantage of the Florida Resident discounts. All Guests planning on using a Florida Resident ticket will need to show valid proof of residency to activate their ticket if they are over the age of 18. This can be done on the Walt Disney World Resort website or at a ticket window at any of the four theme parks or Guest Services at Disney Springs. A guardian needs to be present to show their proof of residency to activate tickets for any Guests who are under the age of 18. 

    Your father can certainly purchase a Florida resident ticket for himself and show proof of residency by having a government-issued Florida ID or an ID with a Florida utility bill, mortgage, car registration, or insurance policy. Alternatively, he can provide proof of Florida residency online on the Walt Disney World website when he purchases his ticket by showing a valid Florida ID digitally. 

    If your father is looking for fun holiday gift ideas, I recommend listening to the planDisney Podcast Guide to Holiday Gift Giving. This podcast has some wonderful tips on how to make the dream that you wish come true. 

    May the magic be with you!
