    Was just wondering if my Florida Resident ticket can be activated at the epcot international gateway entrance to the park. This will be the first park I visit on my trip.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Angel. I see that your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is only in a few short weeks. I bet you are getting so excited. 

    Angel, I have some good news for you! There is a Guest relations window just before the turnstiles to enter Epcot back at the International Gateway. You'll be able to visit that help window and activate your Florida resident tickets back there with no problem. 

    To verify your residency, Angel, you'll need to bring a few things with you to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks that day. You'll need either a valid Florida driver's license with a Florida address on it, a valid Florida state-issued ID Card with a Florida address or a valid Florida-based military ID. If you don't have any of those, then you'll need to provide proof of current mortgage from the past two months, utility bills from the past two months only, current homeowners insurance policy or current automobile registration. Mail can also be accepted as a form of verifying your residency as long as it is from a financial institution or from federal, state, county or city government agencies. Keep in mind, mail cannot be more than 2 months old to be accepted. 

    When you go to activate your Florida residency tickets, Angel, I encourage you to get to that Guest Relations window a little bit early so you don't miss any precious park time waiting in line to be helped. If it were me, I'd probably get there about 30 minutes prior to the park's scheduled opening time that day. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to answer anything else you might think of before your trip. I hope you have so much fun. 

    Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
