    Hi there! My wife and I are Florida residents. What are the rules about whom we can reserve rooms for or buy tickets for at our FL resident rate? We have children, adult grandchildren, and very young great-grandchildren that we will be traveling with.

    Hello Phil! It sounds like you're a lucky person to have such a big family to enjoy a vacation together at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Not only are you lucky to have that family, but you have the added bonus of being a Florida resident, which means that you have access to some pretty amazing discounts and special offers!

    While the Walt Disney World Resort does typically offer discounts on Disney Resort Hotels for Florida residents, those discounts will only be valid for residents of the Sunshine State. For example, if you book two rooms, there must be a resident of Florida staying in each of the rooms. Guests should be prepared to show proof of Florida residency.

    Phil, the good news is that the Walt Disney World Resort also has special discounts for Guests visiting from out-of-state. I am from Pennsylvania, but I can almost always find a discounted room rate when planning my next vacation. Let those out-of-state family members know that they should check the special offers page of the Walt Disney World Resort website fairly often. They will most likely come across a deal which will save them some money. Also, please let your family members know that if they book a room and find that a discount is announced after they have booked, they can call to see if the discount can be applied to their existing reservation. I have done this successfully many times!

    You're going to have a great time visiting with your large group! Come back to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions! We're always happy to help!

    Hakuna Matata!  Jonathan G.
