    My sister, a Florida resident, wants to buy park tickets for my kids 9 & 15yrs (one child/one adult ticket) while we visit. She may or may not visit the parks with us. Is this allowed? Can you explain the process?

    Hi there, Teresa, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy you stopped by with your question. Let's help you plan that magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort with your family!

    I'm a lifelong Floridian myself, and for me, there's nothing like sharing my love of Disney with my family. I bet your sister feels just the same way! Plus, she's definitely piling up the "cool aunt" points with your kids!

    So here's how the Florida Resident Ticket program works. Adults who are Florida residents can buy Florida Resident Tickets for minor children (under 18). The Florida resident will need to show her proof of Florida residency at a Guest Relations location, which can be done at the Theme Park entrances or at the new Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. If your sister can't join you on your first day at Walt Disney World, she may be able to purchase and activate the tickets in advance, depending on what types of tickets you buy and the dates they're valid. You might want to give Disney's Guest Relations a quick call to explain your situation and find out what options your sister may have.

    Teresa, it looks like you'll be here in October. That's such a spook-tacular time to visit Walt Disney World! Do you plan on going to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? Your kids will love all the festive fun, and we just found out that Disney will "treat" us to a brand new Halloween fireworks spectacular during this year's party. I'm so excited for you to get a chance to see it!

    I hope this helps you plan a bushel full of fun for your family this fall, Teresa. Please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
