    I'm a Florida resident and planning a week long stay at Disney World later this year with family from out of state. Is it cheaper for me to purchase a weekday annual pass, versus the Florida resident discount tickets?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nichole! I’m so excited to know that you will be visiting the most magical place on earth with family later this year. Thanks for stopping in with your question about Florida Resident theme park tickets and Walt Disney World Annual Passes

    I’m also a Florida Resident and one of my best friends swears by the Disney Weekday Select Pass. While you may just take this one visit with family and friends, this pass will be good for an entire year, giving you a whole year of opportunities to add some magic to your routine!

    I really enjoy all of the benefits, like complimentary parking at all of the theme parks, discounts at several table service restaurants and those discounts on special ticket events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party always come in handy!

    Nichole, while the annual pass may cost a bit more, you may make up the difference with the discounts you will be able to enjoy and additional visits you can add throughout the year. You will also be able to make monthly payments for your annual passes, so you don’t have to pay for it all up front, as you would if you purchase Florida Resident theme park tickets. Just keep an eye on those block-out dates!

    I hope this information is helpful to you. If you need some help planning that magical visit, don’t hesitate to come back to see us. It’s our pleasure to help you with all the details of your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
