    How do I purchase tickets as a Florida resident?

    Hi Kaitlyn and welcome to planDisney!

    I just love being a Florida resident because it gives me the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World as often as possible.  It's so awesome that Disney offers discounted tickets and annual passes to Florida residents so we can create magical Disney memories with our families.

    If you are looking into purchasing tickets with a Florida resident discount, you can do so right on the Walt Disney World website.  The current discount for Florida resident tickets is for a 3 or 4 day ticket.  Another option is to purchase an annual pass.  New pass purchases open up for sale starting tomorrow, April 20th, which you can also purchase online.  There are many options for annual passes, so if you know you'll be visiting the parks a few times throughout the year, an annual pass will pay for itself in no time.  Another advantage of an annual pass is that you get discounts for merchandise, select dining, Disney Resort hotels and also complimentary theme park parking, which is a huge money saver.  As Florida residents, we can also choose to pay for annual passes with the Monthly Payment Program, so it makes purchasing a pass a little more affordable by breaking up the payments over the year.

    If you are interested in purchasing an annual pass, I highly recommend doing so at your earliest convenience starting tomorrow.  Since new pass sales have been suspended for awhile, there are a lot of Guests who are eager to become Passholders.  Per the Disney Parks Blog announcement last week, new annual pass sales will be limited and could possibly sell out.  

    When using the Florida resident discount on tickets, annual passes or Disney Resort hotels, valid proof of residency is required for each person 18 years of age and older.  If you have the proper Government issued ID, like a Florida driver's licence, you can digitally verify your residency online at the time of purchase.  Otherwise, you will need to bring residency documentation with you to any ticket window when you go to activate your tickets.

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.  

    Have a magical day!
