    Unfortunately, Reunion is not offer that rate any where close to what you guys are stating in this article. which is a bummer( I called to confirm) the cheapest Florida resident is $225 before tax.

    • Stephanie Patterson

      Hi Elizabeth! We’ve listed the starting rate that is published on Reunion’s website. Those rates will go up and down throughout the year depending on the season. We apologize for any confusion! It may be worth checking back into later this year. There’s also a bigger FL resident discount for stays falling on Sunday-Thursday. You get 25% off instead of the 15% off offered on weekends. Hope this helps!
