ORLANDO, Fla. — In March of 2022, inflation was at 8.4% (year over year). "Inflation irritation" is affecting every aspect of our lives from gas, to rent, to even being priced out of the parks in Orlando. We dug and found some deals that Florida residents can take advantage of this summer.

Resort and Theme Park Deals for Florida Residents

Theme Parks

Staying at a hotel on the property at a theme park definitely

gives you advantages. At some resorts, you can get early entry into the parks, express passes to save time in line, and other added perks.

Seaworld Orlando


"We have Florida resident offers but the best way to experience SeaWorld Orlando is [with] the annual pass-it is as low as $13 a month and can include perks like free parking and discounts on food and merchandise," said Lori Cherry, spokesperson for Seaworld.

Universal Studios Orlando

"[At] Universal Orlando, we have great Florida resident ticket options. Florida residents can also bundle their hotel and tickets together, saving guests up to $200. We also have a hotel for every budget. Our newest hotel property, Endless Summer – Dockside Inn & Suites, the sister property to Endless Summer – Surfside Inn & Suites has rooms that start at $91 [a night]," said Jennifer Vasbinder, public relations coordinator for Universal Orlando Resort.

Disney is offering Florida residents discounts of up to 40% on 3 and 4-day tickets plus savings up to 20% on select Disney Resort hotels for stays most nights through July 7, 2022.

Florida residents can purchase the "Disney Pixie Dust Pass" which is an annual pass for $19 plus a down payment of $205. A payment plan is only available to Florida residents.

Non-park Resorts

Staying at resorts a little further away has its advantages as well. If you don't like to be immersed in an amusement park they offer an oasis away from all the themed attractions. Some even have complimentary transportation to nearby attractions. Several resorts are offering discounts for Florida residents with added free gas cards for the trip up from South Florida, free breakfast, and discounts on stays.

Many offer on-site dining options, transportation
Caribe Royale Orlando

all-suite resort offers modern, spacious accommodations perfect for families; an expansive waterfall pool with waterslide; ample outdoor recreation including fishing, tennis, basketball, and bike riding; a boutique spa; dining options to suit every member of the family; and transportation to all four Disney theme parks and Disney Springs.
