    I am planning a vacation for my family and for my parents, who live in Florida. I would like to purchase Florida resident tickets for them. Will that mean they can not get their tickets until they get there and, if so, can I reserve Fast Passes for them?

    Heigh ho, Julie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We’re so happy you stopped by!

    Planning your magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is part of the fun! I love planning and dreaming up all the fun adventures my family and I will enjoy during our visit. It builds up all that excitement while you countdown the days to your arrival. I hope these days fly by so you can be in the middle of the magic with your family making memories really soon!

    Julie, FL residents get to enjoy some really great special offers! To be able to plan those time-saving FastPass+ for your parents, you will absolutely be able to pre-purchase those Florida Resident tickets. Just make sure they remember to bring proof of FL residency for activation. When you visit the Florida Resident page, you’ll be able to purchase them and select to either ship to a FL address or pick up at Will Call with a valid ID that shows FL residency. Once you purchase, simply link the tickets to your parents on your My Disney Experience and start booking those FastPass+!

    I hope you have a magical visit with your family! Make sure you consider adding Memory Maker to your visit. During my last “big family” visit, we ended up with so many high-quality photos thanks to Disney’s PhotoPass photographers. And the best part, the entire family was in the shot! No one had to step out and take turns taking them. It was worth every penny! And just one Memory Maker will collect all the pictures of everyone linked to the account that purchases it. So even if you split up, all those pictures will be there, ready to be edited, downloaded, shared, and enjoyed for years to come!

    Thanks again for stopping by! Please come by and see us again with any more questions.

    See ya real soon, Emille.
