I am planning a trip to Disney. It is quite possibly the most intense planning that I have done for a trip. I have planned big trips to Seychelles, Mauritius, Bora Bora and the like, but for some reason planning my kid’s first ever trip to Disney trumps all. Think reservations with character lunches, fast-passes and more! I want the trip to be special, memorable and most of all I want to know as many travel hacks as I can figure out before I go.

Proof Of Florida Residency For Discounted Disney Tickets, What Is Needed?

In purchasing the tickets, I realized that tickets to Disney parks are expensive! Wow, are they expensive! I started looking for discounted tickets at places like Undercover Tourist but, I quickly noticed that Florida residents get a big discount. So, what are the qualifications needed in order to purchase Florida Resident Discounted Disney Tickets? This information may be of interest to you if you are a part-time FL resident, do you own property in FL or do you pay a bill for a property in FL? Maybe you rent out your beach condo in FL on AirBNB. Well, I emailed Disney and received the following response:

Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort.

The following items are the documents accepted as proof of Florida Residency:

  • Valid Florida Driver’s License
  • Valid Florida state-issued ID Card with Florida address
  • Valid Military ID stationed at one of the Florida Military Bases

If a Guest does not have one of the IDs indicated above, then for each adult Ticket purchased the Guest needs to provide one of the following, dated within the past two months evidencing a Florida residential address together with a corresponding picture ID (passport, driver’s license, state identification card):


Monthly mortgage statement not older than two months old.
Deeds, Mortgage Contracts, Mortgage Payment Booklets and leases are not accepted.

Guests with an exchange certificate need to present a valid form of Florida ID when the exchange certificate is redeemed for the actual Pass.
One Ticket only per valid proof of Florida residency (a Florida resident may buy Tickets for minors in the party)

Exchange Certificates may say:
• “After sale…, may not be transferred except as a gift.” This means that the certificate may be given as a gift, so long as the recipient meets the defined Florida residency criteria.
