WHO CAN I INVITE?
Each employee may invite their dependent children plus 1 guest.
WHO QUALIFIES AS A DEPENDENT CHILD?
We utilize the Disney definition of a dependent – which is age 19 or younger or up to age 23 if the dependent is a full time student. Adult children who live at home because they are dependent on their parents for financial support do not qualify unless their parents are still their guardian – e.g. have a disability. We also make exceptions for foster children or exchange students living in the home.
