    How do I get Florida ticket and hotel discounts together

    Howdy, Kim, and welcome to planDisney! I'm also a Florida resident and love living close to the Walt Disney World Resort magic. And the Special Offers for residents are a fabulous perk. Let's look at the best ways for residents of the Sunshine State to book their vacations.

    I spoke to an orange-juice-loving Cast Member who said that Florida residents can book a Vacation Package to bundle the year-round discounted three and four-day Theme Park Tickets with a Disney Resort Hotel stay. You'd secure the package with a deposit and can change dates within specific parameters. 

    If you'd like to take advantage of any limited-time promotional Theme Park Tickets, such as the Disney Weekday Magic Tickets, those would need to be paid in full at the time of purchase. 

    In that case, you can call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to see about booking a Basic Vacation Package without park tickets. You can book a hotel using any available resident offers and add Memory Maker and any other add-ons. 

    For my family, the main advantage of booking a package is that we only have to pay the deposit upfront, and then we can pay it off as we go. But those Florida Resident ticket offers are sometimes too good to pass up!

    Please feel free to contact the reservations line at (407) 934-7639 for details. They can best advise you once they know the specific tickets and hotel you're interested in.

    I hope you visit the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival during your upcoming visit. I recently sampled international cuisine and danced off those calories at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. That was the perfect combination!

    Kim, I hope I've steered you toward booking the vacation of your dreams. Please stop by planDisney anytime. You can find me where the palm trees sway!

    Magic awaits,
