    Are "snowbirds" or part time residents of Florida eligible for Disney annual pass? I will be living with my adult child who is full time resident

    Hello Nancy! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    You are quite a lucky lady to be living in the Sunshine State for at least half of the year, and it sure doesn't hurt to be in close proximity to both your child and The Most Magical Place on Earth! I keep hoping that when my children grow up one will choose to move down to Florida so that I have a reason to go too! Since Walt Disney World Resort is always changing you know you'll never run out of exciting things to see and do when you're spending time together as a family at the Resort. 

    While I would love to give you an easy "yes" or "no" answer about snowbirds, you'll find that there are many different ways to prove your Florida residency in order to be able to receive Florida Resident discounts, perks, and Annual Passes. 

    Before you plan on purchasing your Florida Resident Annual Pass, you'll want to make sure you can prove you are a Florida resident by being able to provide a valid Florida driver's license with a Florida address, a valid Florida state-issued ID card with a Florida address or a Florida-based military ID.  With these types of identification, you'll even be able to verify your residency online, meaning you can head right to the Theme Park gate on your first day of arrival! 

    Without one of the forms of identification mentioned above, you'll need to show two other separate pieces of identification to prove your Florida residency.  You'll need to provide a valid picture ID, such as a driver's license, passport or identification card that matches a piece of mail (dated within the past two months) with your name on it sent to a Florida residential address.
    Acceptable forms of mail are monthly mortgage statements, homeowner's insurance policies or bills, current automobile registration, insurance policies or bills, utility bills such as phone, cable, or water, or mail from financial institutions or government agencies.  Please take a moment to check out the link above for the full list of acceptable forms of proof of residency.

    If you have any other specific questions that I did not answer, you are always welcome to call and speak with a Cast Member at (407) 939-7277.

    I bet you're excited to head down for this winter season, Nancy! Make sure to pop by EPCOT and check out the incredible new attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.  It is definitely my new favorite throughout all four Theme Parks!

When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
