Current Theme Park Deals for Florida Residents: November 2022

The theme parks are a significant reason many of us decided to join the rest of the sunshine state. Not only do Florida residents get to live near the parks, they often get to take advantage of deals and discounts specifically for Floridians.

Tickets & Annual Passes 

While there are discounts for these parks, they don’t always offer Florida resident-specific discounts. Currently, the discounted ticket and annual pass pricing is for everyone.

While there are no specific annual pass discounts, the ability to use the monthly EZpay is only available to Florida residents. 

Free Entrance for Florida Teachers 

As a former teacher myself, I did find this to be exciting for educators. Sea World is offering all certified and active K-12 Florida teachers a complimentary Sea World Florida Teacher Card. This card grants unlimited free admission to Sea World through September 7,2023. Teachers can visit Sea World’s website HERE to find out how to apply for this fantastic deal. 

Discovery Cove

Discovery Cove hasn’t forgotten about Florida residents and offers year-long 20% savings on all their admission options. Some of these options do include entrance to Sea World, Aquatica, and Bush Gardens Tampa Bay. Find out more HERE.


Legoland currently has two Florida resident exclusive passes: Play & Party Pass and Awesome Pass, as well as a monthly payment option. The Play & Party Pass has block-out dates but is only $99 for a year of admission. The Awesome Pass offers unlimited access and includes the water park for $149.99. Annual Passes for non-residents start at $199.99. Learn more HERE.

Keep in mind with all these deals, proper identification such as a Florida driver’s license, state-issued ID, Florida-based military ID, or two proof of address documents such as a mortgage statement, utility bill, etc., are required. Required documents can be found on each theme park’s site.
