    FL resident uncle wants to gift discounted park tickets to our kids. Can we manage all tickets (kids + ours) & Genie+ in our account if he buys them? He can't join due to work. How could he do it?"

    Hi there, Maria!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question! I have family members who live in Florida, and I love spending time with them while also visiting Walt Disney World Resort. It's the perfect excuse for some Disney magic!

    Guests must be Florida residents to use the Florida Resident Disney Thrills Ticket Promotion, and all adults need to show proof of Florida residency at the park entrance. Standard theme park tickets can be purchased on the Walt Disney World website. I suggest comparing the prices of multiple one-day tickets to a multi-day ticket to see which one has the lowest cost. Multi-day tickets can be used on non-consecutive days. 

    If your thoughtful uncle purchases tickets for your family, you can manage the tickets and utilize Disney Genie+ on the My Disney Experience app. After he buys the tickets, ask him to add you to his "My Friends and Family List" on the Walt Disney World website or on the My Disney Experience app. To connect on the website, have him go to “My Family & Friends List” and scroll down until he sees “Add a Guest.” Select that, and if he is already connected with you, he just needs to look for your name. If you are not connected, he can click on "I'll enter their name and age" to add your information. Select "Share Planning with this Guest" and enter your email address. My pal Melanie has some great tips for completing this process!

    I use the My Disney Experience app all of the time when I am visiting Walt Disney World! Before our visit, I use it to look at park maps, read restaurant menus, and see entertainment schedules. While I am there, I view wait times, make Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations, and mobile order food. I love being able to pre-order food from anywhere in the parks! I usually place our mobile order at least a couple of hours before we want to eat to ensure our preferred time is available. 

    Maria, I hope you have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World Resort! Please visit us again if you have additional questions! 

    Wishing you a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!
