    Do Florida resident annual passes come with any perks like early park admission or after hours stays? Also, can they buy short stay tickets for family at any sort of discount?

    Hello Valerie!

    Welcome back to planDisney. We're so glad you've stopped by with another question for us. I'm happy to help!

    Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passes not only offer passholders admission to the parks across an entire year but also include some pretty great discounts on select food and merchandise as well as complimentary standard theme park parking. As a Disney Sorcerer Passholder, I've taken full advantage of the associated shopping and dining discounts and have even added a reduced-cost Memory Maker package to my pass for a year's worth of priceless photo memories. Offers change from time to time so it's always best to check the website or inquire about available discounts in person with a Cast Member at the point of sale.

    Annual Passholders may also have access to purchase discounted tickets for special events like Disney After Hours, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party as well. This is not always available for all dates and across all offerings, but it's always worth it to sign in to your My Disney Experience Account before completing any purchases so any applicable discounts appear.

    Early Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are perks associated with eligible resort stays. Annual Passholders would need a valid resort reservation to take advantage of these benefits, but there are often discounted resort offers available throughout the year.

    In addition to discounts on resort stays, Florida residents often have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets exclusive to residents. A guest would not need to have an Annual Pass to purchase these special offer tickets but will need to show proof of residency to activate the tickets for use. As such, Florida residents are not able to purchase discounted resident tickets for family members unless the family members also have valid proof of Florida residency.

    I hope this clears up any confusion Valerie. If you have additional questions please don't hesitate to come right back to planDisney and let us know.

    Magic and memories,
