- Hi Marie!
Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! From my experience using the Florida Resident Discounts, when a ticket is purchased for a minor, the adult purchasing must show their Florida ID upon arrival at the parks. Your father in law may want to inquire with AAA if the tickets he is purchasing will be given in the form of a voucher (which would require you to visit a ticket window and exchange for an actual ticket) or of AAA is providing tickets which would enable the kids to head right to the gate and bypass the ticket window. Walt Disney World recently changed the ticket system where before they would give paper tickets, now they are giving a plastic RFID card as a ticket, which works in conjunction with a new system called My Magic +.
Hope this helps! It has been a pleasure assisting you!
