An EXCLUSIVE New Disney Discount Dropped Today

Disney has announced a new ticket offer today that is interesting in a lot of ways. Currently, Disney is running a $99 per day deal on 4+ day theme park tickets. This offer is available to the general public and an unheard of deal. Disney tickets haven’t been $99 a day in almost a decade.

Now, however, they’ve added a new deal to the mix– a new offer is available for Florida residents only. We think this may be the tip of the iceberg where discounts are concerned. We speculated earlier today that Disney is likely scrambling to match pace with Universal, who out-earned them last quarter.

The new offer is unique because it applies only to EPCOT and Animal Kingdom. Introducing the 2-Park Explorer Ticket. From August 1, 2023- September 29, 2023, Florida residents can purchase the Explorer ticket and visit the two parks (EPCOT and Animal Kingdom) on two separate days for only $159! That’s very nearly a buy one day, get one free offer. The ticket may be used on consecutive or non-consecutive days and are base tickets (meaning you may only visit one park per day).

Theme park reservations are required for this offer, despite the parks being very clearly defined within the offer. Reservations will not go away until next January, regardless of ticket type. People’s of Florida residency is required at the time of purchase for all adult tickets. No proof of residency is required for child tickets.

Not a Florida resident? Never fear. We expect more discounts to be released, including discounts for Annual Passholders,  DVC Members, and the general public soon. In the meantime, you can check out Disney’s current offers (which include Christmas discounts) here

This isn’t the first time Disney has offered a deal tied to specific Parks, but it’s certainly not the norm. The strategy here is most likely to funnel local visitors into Disney World’s two least visited theme parks. This helps spread the crowds out while giving perks to some of Disney’s most loyal patrons- Floridians.
