    We are FL residents and will purchase FL resident park tickets for ourselves and 3 grandchildren. If one of them is 11 yo and requires an adult park ticket, does he need FL proof of residency? If not, at what age does this occur? Thanks

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Bobbi! 

    How fun that you are planning to spoil, I mean treat your grand-mouseketeers to a visit to the most magical place on earth! My first Disney memory was with my grandmother. I have her to thank for my love and passion for the Walt Disney World Resort. It was a visit I will never forget!

    Bobbi, proof of residency is required for guests 18-years and over wishing to take advantage of the special discounted prices for Florida Residents. You can pre-purchase all the tickets online and link them to your My Disney Experience account, so you can begin planning your visit and locking in your FastPass+ once that booking window opens. Upon arrival, the adults (18+) will have to provide proof of residency so the tickets can be activated. 

    To activate your tickets, simply visit any ticket window or guest service location where a cast member will be able to get those activated for you. I recommend doing so the night before you plan on visiting the parks if you are able to. You can visit the Disney Springs Guest Relations location and make a night of it. Have some dinner. Enjoy the sights and fun nighttime entertainment. Then, once you arrive at the theme parks for your adventure-filled day, you don’t have to spend time waiting in line to get this taken care of.

    I hope this information was helpful! Wishing you a magical visit,
