    hi all,

    can anyone answer this...

    My mom and dad purchased a home in florida, they havent moved yet, but have settled on the house. If they purchase tix, can i used them?
    and im not a fl resident... does WDW check every adult's id at the ticket pickup?

    meaning, i would like to take my daugther and me to the park...

    and my mom or dad wouldnt be going in, possibly there to pick up tix, they dont got fl drivers licences yet, might be able to get picture id.

    thanks

    mitch

    You have to have a valid FL ID - drivers liscense, college, military... etc. you can't just use an address... sorry! :)

    Disney is very strict on Florida resident status. If you do not have a Florida ID with a Fl address, a military ID showing a Fl address or a college ID showing a Fl address you won't get the discount. If you are buying one day passes the savings are not that significant (i think maybe $3) Where Fl residency really comes into play are APs and resort rates.

    At this stage of the game, none of you is a Florida resident. Until your parents get valid state ID, merely owning property isn't enough.

    Tickets are not transferable, so you would not be able to use tickets that they bought with a resident discount.

    HOWEVER, ID isn't checked for children, so your daughter could use a ticket that Grandma bought if Grandma takes her to the park.

    She could buy vouchers but then you would have to show your id when you get the actual ticket.
    Kids will be able to get tickets from her sinc ethey dont have id's

    Take it from the Florida residents on this board, the discount only really is significant when going with APs or with hotel stays. As has been previously stated they are very strict with this. Do not be disappointed if you try and they tell you no.

    Per official policy...

    Anyone can purchase any number of Florida Resident discounted Magic Your Way tickets. When you purchase them, you are really purchasing an exchange voucher. Only a Florida Resident with proof of residency can redeem these vouchers.

    When this voucher is redeemed at a Walt Disney World Ticket Window or Theme Park Guest Relations, (these vouchers cannot be redeemed at a Resort Hotel) each guest of driving age or older will be required to show proof of Florida Residency at which point the Guest name is printed on the ticket, making it non-transferable. Once the ticket is used the first time, the ticket tag system is used to further prevent the transfer of tickets.

    Hope this helps! :sohappy:
