  2. Hi all – we just wanted to let you know about some changes coming …

    As you will be aware, DoingFlorida is currently spread across two different sites; DoingFlorida.com and DoingFloridaForums.com. We will soon be changing this so that everything will be together under one site; DoingFlorida.com.

    The vast majority of our members and visitors already view our daily news on the main DoingFlorida.com site (or via our Facebook page) rather than on the forum. From this week, the daily news will appear only on the main DoingFlorida.com site, and this forum will shortly be closed down. We want to thank all our members for your fantastic support over the past eleven years, it has been great to get to know so many fellow Florida fans! If you would be interested in joining a DoingFlorida Facebook Group please let us know - it would be great to keep the community together - we will start a thread in the Members Forum so you can let us know what you think.

    It's the end of an era but the start of a new one and we very much hope you will join us!

    Best Wishes from the DoingFlorida Team

    I would think so, we always renew our annual passes on the gate.

    Yep. Can get on the gate.

    However - if you buy online you pay the current rate which means if disney hike the prices, you still get them at the cheaper rate. There are only active when you pick them up

    We have premium annual passes waiting for us. We paid $453 each for them

    I presume it's Florida residents discount. We used to buy our SeaWorld and Universal annual passes as Florida residents. Nobody ever question it or asked for ID.

    It's 3 or 4 years since we had them so I don't know if you can still get them.

    By the way, I had an email from SeaWorld the other day saying for a limited time any US resident can buy a one day Aquatica ticket for $8. Not really fair on us Brits is it!

    We get the Florida Resident's seasonal annual pass. It has block out dates, Christmas, Easter, the summer months but we don't go at those times anyway. Costs just over $300 each, what a bargain!
    We also have 2 year passes for Seaworld which I think cost around $160 and they include parking.

    don't you have to prove you are a Florida resident to purchase the tickets?

    You've just reminded me our tickets were 2 year annual. I'm not up to date with fees but I do remember it was a good deal, especially with the parking and a few other perks.

    You can get a Florida ID card from the Driving Licence office. We had to show our passports and the property tax bill for the villa. They send the ID card out a month after you apply. We then use the ID to get our passes. Sorted!

    Correct, you do need Florida ID / proof of Florida residency for ‘residents’ passes and we have always been required to show this when buying / picking up our Disney Annuals.

    Our Resident’s Annual Passes (regular ~ not Seasonal or Premium) were around $500 each in January this year. This makes a Premium at $453 remarkable value.

    The first year we got ours I was comparing prices on the internet and noticed that the residents passes were discounted. I simply put in the address/zip/phone of the Holiday Inn where we were staying that year and paid for them online.

    We had to go to the rear of the ticketing area at Universal to collect them and simply to customer relations at SeaWorld. Although we have very broad Brit accents we were never asked for ID. After that we just renewed them when the reminder was sent.

    We don't get much from Universal nowadays but we are still on the mailing list for SeaWorld. By the sound of it security and resident checks have been tightened somewhat.

    WOW and WOW again ~ even with the DVC discount that is still a fantastic 'special' price ~ would be hard to say NO (and why would anyone not want them).
