    As a new Florida resident what options are there for family passes? Do they need to be bought individually or can I buy one for the whole family. (2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 2)

    Hello and welcome to planDisney!

    It's fantastic to hear that you're exploring the magic of Walt Disney World Resort as a new Florida resident. The Sunshine State not only offers beautiful weather and beaches but also the perk of special offers and discounts at Disney parks for its residents.

    Florida residents have access to a variety of ticket options and annual passes that can add magic to your family adventures throughout the year. These options are designed to provide flexibility and value, allowing you to choose what best fits your family's desires and schedule.

    For families like yours,  you'll be delighted to know that children under 3 years of age get free admission to the Disney parks, so you won't need to purchase a ticket for your 2-year-old. For the rest of the family, Florida resident tickets and passes must be purchased for each family member who requires admission. However, Florida residents can take advantage of special pricing on tickets and annual passes, offering a considerable saving compared to standard prices.

    While you can't buy a single pass that covers the whole family, you can purchase individual passes or tickets for each family member at the Florida resident rate. Here are some options you might consider:

    Florida Resident Annual Passes: These passes offer a year of magic with different levels of access and benefits. Depending on the pass you choose, you can enjoy perks like park hopping, free parking, and discounts on dining and merchandise. Each adult and child (aged 3 and above) in your family would need their own pass.

    Florida Resident Tickets: Disney often offers special multi-day tickets exclusively for Florida residents, such as the Florida Resident Disney Thrills Ticket. These tickets provide a flexible way to explore the parks at a discounted rate, with options usually ranging from 3 to 4 days of park access. Again, each family member aged 3 and older would need their own ticket.

    To purchase Florida resident tickets or passes, you'll need to provide proof of Florida residency for each adult in your family. This can typically be done online or at the park entrances.

    We hope this helps you navigate the options available to you as a Florida resident and that you and your family enjoy countless magical moments at Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any more questions or need further assistance planning your Disney adventures, feel free to reach out to us at planDisney.

    Wishing you a magical journey filled with unforgettable memories,
