    I am a resident FL and I want to spend a week at a Disney hotel with friends who come to visit from another country, I know that the discount for tickets is not possible so if I reserve the hotel room as a FL resident they have to show a Florida ID?

    Hey there, hi there, Eliana! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    Well, it sounds like the magic is calling you, Eliana, and I'm so excited to see that you're answering the call and planning your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And since you plan on staying at one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels with your friends, your planning is off to a practically perfect start. Staying at one of the fabulous Disney Resort hotels allows you to stay immersed in the magic and take advantage of pixie-dusted perks, such as complimentary transportation and even extra time in the morning magic. Now, let's get this planning party started!

    I think you will be happy to hear that Florida residents can absolutely have out-of-state or international Guests stay in their room with them at their Disney Resort hotel. As long as you (with your photo ID and proof of Florida residency) are booking the room and checking in on arrival day, your Guests do not have to be Florida residents or show a Florida ID to stay with you. 

    You are correct that your friends will not be able to take advantage of any Florida resident ticket deals, as everyone does have to show proof of residency to activate those discounts, but they can absolutely stay in the magic with you at your discounted rate. Like Genie, they ain't never had a friend like you!

    I hope this helps, Eliana, and I hope you all have the most magical and memorable time together! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have. 

    Blue skies and sunshine,
