    Hi - we are staying at a DW hotel (Coronado Springs) and have purchased park tickets with the Canadian resident discount. Where will we need to show proof of residency and can it be done prior to the first day at the park?

    Hi there Joanna et Bienvenue à planDisney!

    When it's still a little colder up in Quebec, it's so nice to be able to dream and look forward to a trip to Walt Disney World Resort next month, along with the thousands of Canadians who often descend en masse around March Break. This year, it's been so great to see the return of Special Offers targeted at Canadians and the chance to save some serious money on discounted theme park admission with the current promotion!

    As you mentioned, folks and families looking to take advantage of special resident-only offers are required to prove this, as the policy currently states the following: "All adults will need to show proof of Canada residency at a Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window prior to first use."

    These windows can be found just outside each of the theme park entrances after passing through security as well as at Guest Relations at Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Some savvy Canucks looking to save a little time ahead of their first theme park day venture over to the Disney Springs Welcome Center to avoid having to bring along their identification specifically for this reason when they're out and about enjoying rides and attractions. 

    I've been keeping track of fellow Canadians and their experiences with this promotion who have been successful showing their proof on their mobile devices and based on my observations in person as well as speaking with Canadians on their Walt Disney World Resort visits, I discovered that Cast Members have not always been requesting identification from every Canadian passing through the turnstiles or may only require it from one person in the party; others report Cast Members requesting a physical piece of government-issued identification from every adult so it's best to be well prepared.  

    Over the next few weeks, keep an eye on the latest updates coming your way on the Disney Parks Blog and stop by planDisney again for any other tips or advice ahead of your upcoming Disney adventure!

    Here's to all of the magical memories you'll make next month!
