    Hi again! I have a question about DVC tickets. As DVC members, we are only allow to get the discounted passes/tickets that say DVC, not the ones that just say Florida residents? I know we can get any of the “regular”passes/tickets as well.

    Greetings Brandy!

    I am sooo excited for you! Your decision to join the Disney Vacation Club family will be one of the best decisions you have ever made! My husband and I became Members the Christmas after we married, and we have enjoyed every minute of our Membership since.

    One of the great bonuses of membership are the exclusive Member Benefits. They are ever-changing, but include discounts on dining and merchandise, access to unique events and more! Did you know that members get the exclusive opportunity to “pool hop?” Meaning that you can swim, splash, and play at not only your Resort pool but also at other select pools across property. Blackout dates and capacity rules apply, so make sure to check at your Resort’s front desk before heading out!

    There are quite a few passes exclusive to Florida residents, with one exception. Disney Gold Pass is exclusive to both members AND Florida Residents. This Pass offers major perks (park hopping, Disney PhotoPass, and theme park parking), but blackout dates apply. Since we live in Florida, we take advantage of the discounts! We usually choose the Platinum Pass (with member discount) so that we can enjoy the Parks year-round without blackout dates. 

    I renewed my husband’s pass this week and checked with the Cast Member to see if the Florida Resident discount was more than the Disney Vacation Club discount. He assured me that members’ pricing currently is the same as Florida Resident pricing, so it looks like members are getting all the perks!

    Brandy, I hope this was helpful. Continue to dream as dreamers do!
