    Planning on going to Disney World with a friend who lives out of state, can I buy them a Florida resident ticket?

    Hello, Melissa! You're a lucky girl!  I'm pretty envious of anyone who lives in the Sunshine State this time of yEAR, and I know there are lots of guests who are envious of those terrific Florida Resident discounts!   

    It's fantastic your friend is coming for a visit this spring!  Walt Disney World's current policy states that anyone using a Florida resident discounted ticket over the age of 18 must show proper Florida identification when using the ticket, so, unfortunately, you won't be able to purchase your friend's ticket.  Take a look at the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page- there's currently a deal for 4-Park Magic Tickets.  

    You'll be visiting at the ideal time to experience the 2019 Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival.  The topiaries and garden displays are the main events here, and Epcot is bursting in color! If your friend is visiting from a cold weather state, they'll appreciate this breath of fresh air.  And grazing your way through the Outdoor Kitchens in World Showcase is a great way to spend any day of the week!

    I hope you have a fun visit with your friend, Melissa!  Visit us at the Moms Panel again if you ever have any other planning questions.
