    I think I already filled out a proof of Florida residency form earlier this year, so there was no option when I purchased tickets today. However, I purchased 2 resident tickets (1 is for my sister who lives with me). Will she need to show proof?

    Hiya, Caroline, and greetings from a fellow Floridian! I also enjoy the perks and benefits that Walt Disney World Resort offers residents of the Sunshine State. I recently became an Annual Passholder, and that's one of the best Disney decisions I've ever made. It sounds like you often visit so the passholder life might be in your future, too. In the meantime, let's look at verifying Florida residency for your tickets so your next visit is practically perfect.

    You are correct that Florida residency can be completed online during check-out when purchasing tickets and passes. And once you've confirmed your residency, you typically aren't asked to do so in the future. But since you don't seem entirely sure you've completed the process, I advise both you and your sister to bring the appropriate residency proof on your next visit. It never hurts to have too much documentation! Even if you're good to go, she must verify her Florida resident status before using her theme park ticket.

    My top choice for handling the verification process is to head to Disney Springs the evening before your first day at a theme park. The Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs is usually quick, easy, and close to many outstanding shopping and dining options. My pals tease me because I always recommend guests stop by Gideon's Bakehouse for a half-pound cookie to celebrate activating their tickets. I'm known as the Peanut Butter Crunch panelist! 

    Thanks again for stopping by, Caroline, and I'm sprinkling pixie dust and sunshine so that your Florida tickets lead to your best Disney trip ever. Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
