  • I purchased a Florida resident ticket back in February 2019 but I haven’t used it yet. Do I still have time to use it and until when?

  • Do your 3 park visits need to be in a row or can they be spread out and just used up by 6/30?

  • I agree with Bryan. DVC members should be eligible for these discounted tickets. We’ve spend tens of thousands of dollars for membership plus annual dues. Many Floridians are day-trippers who’ve never stayed overnight at a Disney resort. I feel less and less valued as a DVC member.

  • Is property papers,utility bills accepted as proof?
    Thank You

  • Are DVC members eligible for this? They do technically own a deed in Flordia.

  • Does this mean you have to use all 3 or 4 days by June 30th or just the 1st day by that time?
