Do Florida Residents Get Discounts at Theme Parks?

Yes, most theme parks offer Florida Resident discounts for local visitors, and these discounts are typically always cheaper than regular admission rates.

You will have to purchase your tickets directly from the theme park in order to obtain these rates.

Visitors will have to show proof of Florida residency. The easiest way to do this is with a Florida Driver's license.

It's important to know that these Florida resident rates often change as well.

You can find the most updated information for each theme park directly from their website, which we've already linked for you.
