    Nice!!! My FIL wants to join us for a few days on our trip in February and this may help. Question though: he's a snow bird so he spends part time in FL and part in NJ and his license is a NJ. He owns his house in FL that he resides in FL so he still qualifies for this discount right? If so, this will be a great deal for him.

    Was hoping for $99 or even $109, but I will take it =)

    Does anyone know the expiration date? We will be using 3 days at the end of this month, but will have 1 day left for a day trip!~

    I know these tickets are available for purchase online. Can they be bought at the resorts, as well as at the parks?

    Thank you!

    Due to demographic information having to be entered into the Automated Ticketing System for any Florida Resident Tickets, and not being able to interface the demographics from LILO (the Resorts computer system) to ATS, they can only be purchased at the parks (includes water parks, TTC, DTD, and Epcot International Gateway) If you purchase them online you receive a certificate/voucher/will-call reservation which must be exchanged for a live ticket at a Park ticket or Guest Relations window.

    Note this also applies to any level of Annual Pass, as well as the special Armed Forces Salute tickets.

    So I know these tickets do not expire until June 7th, but will they be available up until that date? I'm just wondering since my trip isn't until the end of May, and if it would be better to purchase the voucher online now or wait until I'm at the parks?

    You are better off waiting until you get to the Park. Even if you got a voucher (or will-call) you would still have to go to a ticket booth to activate the Resident ticket.

    It is not as if there is a limited number. These are available in ATS through June 6 and when you buy one it will be printed on the spot.

    Does anyone know if we will be able to add these tickets to our KTTW? If this is possible, where in Disney can this be done? Thanks for your help.

    Due to the difficulties of interfacing demographic information between systems, Resident, YES, and Armed Forces Salute tickets and any level of annual pass cannot be be processed at a Resort and cannot be added to the room key.

    Cheshire Figment - I have a quick question sorta on target.......I have a Florida Resident 3 Park Pass that I've only used 1 day on, but used that September 1st. Can I use that to upgrade to a Florida Resident's Seasonal Pass & when would they say the start date was - the September 1st? or the day I upgrade? Trying to figure out which way to go. TIA.....E

    This may sound crazy but, what if you went to one of the parks on one of the black out days on the tickets? Would they deny you entry, make you pay for a seperate ticket or an upgrade price? I am going to be there on that Saturday (3-23) and thought I would have that day to use. Now I don't know what to do!

    Your ticket will not work in the turnstiles on a blockout date. On the Guest side it will say access denied and on the Greeter side it will indicate Invalid date.

    The only way you could get into the park is to purchase a one day or longer ticket which is not blocked out.

    There are "regular" three and four day Resident tickets at certain prices. These special Discover Disney three and four day prices have different restriction and cost less.

    If you upgrade the Discover Disney tickets to any level of AP you are only credited with the price you paid for them and not the higher value of a regular three or four day ticket.
