Walt Disney World Resort has just introduced new Florida resident Disney tickets.
Florida Resident Disney Tickets
The new Disney World ticket comes as an effort by the Walt Disney Company to drive local traffic up in Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Many outlets have reported that theme park attendance has decreased over 2023, although the Walt Disney Company has denied this.
As such, Disney did release a four-day, four-park ticket at $396 (even cheaper here at Undercover Tourist). This particular offering allowed park guests to visit one park a day – making one visit to each park during a four-day span.
However, Disney seems to have shocked fans and local residents with a deeply discounted Florida resident ticket.
The new four-day Florida resident Disney weekday magic ticket is only $235. This grants you one admission to each park, one park per day.
The tickets surprisingly have NO BLACKOUT DATES (only weekends) and are available for visits between October 2 – December 22.
The only caveat is that you can only go on a weekday. Although some may consider this a drawback, weekdays in theme parks are usually less crowded. As such, you may have shorter lines, fewer crowds at dining locations, and even a drop in prices for Disney Genie+ or an Individual Lightning Lane.
There are also less expensive offerings at $215 for a 3-day Florida resident ticket and $195 for a two-day ticket. However, they end up being more money per day, if you price it out.
Walt Disney World revealed a new Florida resident "Weekday Magic" 4-day ticket for $59/day that is valid Oct. 2 – Dec. 22 (not valid on weekends).
Most surprising? The tickets have zero blackout dates. You can go to Magic Kingdom on Thanksgiving for $59. pic.twitter.com/k9MHkC76Rp

Other Florida Resident Discounts
In addition to the new tickets, Walt Disney World Resort offers other discounts to Florida residents. In addition to being able to purchase select Annual Passes, Disney provides a 30% discount on rooms at select Disney Resort hotels (during the same October 2 to December 25 period).
Guests who take advantage of this offer can enjoy the theme parks’ special Halloween, Fall, and Christmas decorations. However, these do not include admission to special events such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween, Disney Jollywood Nights, or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
If purchasing these tickets, proof of Florida residency is required. Guests can either verify their address at the theme park or on Walt Disney World’s website. When you purchase the Disney tickets, you must fill out the “Your Florida Resident Information” form at check out.
New offerings at the theme parks that you can enjoy (if you are a Florida resident visiting for the first time this year) include the Mirabel meet and greet at the Magic Kingdom Park, Tron Lightcycle/ Run at Magic Kingdom Park, and the return of EPCOT Forever nighttime show.
