    Hi My son and his wife are coming to Florida in February, I know I can buy park tickets for my grandchildren using my Florida ID for discount but not for my son and his wife. Do I have to visit the park with the grandkids? Regards Geoff

    Greetings Geoff!

    I'm so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    That is wonderful of you to buy Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park tickets for your grandkids. You're going to win their favorite relative of the year! There's nothing quite as exciting as going to Walt Disney World Resort; your family is sure to have an incredible time!

    Florida Resident Disney tickets may be purchased online and picked up at Will Call or they can be purchased at all four Theme Park ticket windows. If the tickets are one day Theme Park passes, there is no price difference between a Florida resident one day pass and a non-resident pass. However, if the Theme Park tickets are for two days or longer, an adult of 18 years of age or older must be present during the time the tickets are picked up and show proof of Florida Residency. This means you or another Florida Resident would have to be there during the time your family is picking up the tickets. Once the tickets have been picked up, you would not have to stay. For instance, if your family will be going for 3 days, you would only have to be present for the first day to pick up the tickets. During the next two days, your family could go on their own.

    To help make their trip seamless, be sure to have your son or his wife create a My Disney Experience account so they can start planning their FastPass+ selections. Making these magical selections means your family waits less in lines and has more time to enjoy themselves. 

    One thing is for sure, a Walt Disney World Resort trip with family is full of memories and magic! I do hope your family has the very best time, Geoff!
