    Will a bank statement suffice as proof of Florida residency for me to book a Disney cruise with the Florida resident rate?

    Welcome to planDisney Laura!

    It is such a great time to be planning a Disney Cruise. All 4 ships are out at sea, and the beautiful Disney Wish is on its way. I cannot wait to board the Wish to see all it has to offer! I'm so excited to be cruising and enjoying buffets, the Sailing Away Deck Party, and lounging at Castaway Cay. 

    Regarding necessary documents to receive a Florida Resident rate, this is what the website states:
    "To take advantage of Florida residency cruise rates, at least one adult in each stateroom must provide proof of qualifying residency within 48 hours of booking. Failure to submit qualifying identification will result in a cancellation, with applicable cancellation fees.
    Proper form of verification must be sent via email to
    Proof of residency must be valid at the time of sailing, and includes the following:
    Florida Driver's License
    Florida Identification Card
    Florida utility bill with Guest's name and address
    Renter's lease agreement
    Note: a property deed is not considered acceptable proof of residency"

    **If you need further clarification, contact a friendly Disney Cruise Line agent at 407-951-3532.

    If your itinerary includes a day at Castaway Cay, be adventurous and explore the island. My family enjoys renting bikes. It is a great way to see so much of the island and get some exercise to work off all that delicious food at Cookie's BBQ! Ooh, I can taste that potato salad right now! 

    Exciting news...Disney Cruise just released its Summer 2023 itineraries! There are so many exciting destinations and ports of call. It is never too soon to start thinking of next summer, right?!

    Wishing you a magical sailing with Disney Cruise Line!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
