Florida Resident Discounts: ATTRACTIONS
Walt Disney World
Why limit date night to just a few hours? Throughout the year there are Florida Resident Discounts at Walt Disney World. This includes discounts on hotel stays, activities, dining and more – depending on the time of year.
During slower periods there are sometimes Florida resident discounts on Disney tickets, which can be used on nonconsecutive days. Proof of residency is required and while only one theme park per day is valid, you can upgrade to the Park Hopper option for an extra charge. There's even a Water Park + Sports Add-on option if you have energy to play a round of golf or cool off in a pool after your day at the parks.
Currently, there is a Florida resident 2-Day Disney Weekday Magic Ticket for $175 plus tax—or choose a 3-Day Disney Weekday Magic Ticket for just $20 more (total ticket price $195 plus tax).
Ticket valid Monday to Friday only, from January 10 through April 27, 2023—subject to these blackout dates:
March 13 to March 17, 2023
April 3 to April 7, 2023

Save money locally with these Orlando Happy Hours
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!
