We have some great news! I just got word that the Disney Florida State Discounted passes will be back this year!
The Discover Disney Florida Resident Tickets are available as a 3 or 4 day ticket. 3 days is $119 (plus tax) and 4 days is $129 (plus tax). They have black out dates of March 23 – April 5, 2013 and expire on June 7, 2013, so the last day you can use the ticket is June 7th. The base tickets are for one park per day, but you can add the park hopper option for $28.50 (plus tax) or make them park hoppers WITH water park fun and more for $57 (plus tax). The upgrades are the same price for the 3 or 4 day pass.
These tickets will go on sale starting January 5th and must be purchased by June 5th. These are similar to the Play 4 Days and Wild 4 Disney promotions that have been available to Florida residents in the years past.
So hopefully this will help you “Discover Disney”

Disneyland’s Parks in California are lowering the boom on guests who “rent” tickets from unauthorized brokers. A practice that has caused quite a stir out in California and had gotten a lot of attention because it violates Disney’s company policy.
Disneyland has begun to require any guest who presents a 4-day or 5-day park pass to show a photo identification so they can match it with the name on the ticket. In the past cast members would only spot check for identification. There are now special turnstiles for 4-day and 5-day pass holders at the parks so that photo IDs can be checked.
This new photo identification mandate is helping Disney enforce the fact that their tickets are “nontransferable”. Unauthorized scalpers have been renting multiday passes to visitors at a cost of anywhere from $90 to $99 per day. A Disneyland 1-day resort tickets costs $125. Up until this time there were up to nine different “unauthorized” ticket brokers renting out passes.
In addition to this new policy Disney is continuing to work on additional technology to resolve this type of unauthorized use of tickets – but nothing specific has been revealed. Walt Disney World in Florida use biometrics (a fingerprinting scanning system) to check multiday passes for visitors.
Do you think Disney is being too strict on this policy or not? Let us know what you think!
