Might want to take a look at the image Robb posted again...

While there are only 6 levels of passes, the two most expensive are available to everyone, the top three to DVC, and all six to FL Residents.

Looking at just the top two levels, there definitely is a discount...

Platinum Pass (New Pass):
$749 for Non-FL Residents
$649 for FL Residents
$649 for DVC Members

Platinum Plus Pass (New Pass):
$829 for Non-FL Residents
$729 for FL Residents
$729 for DVC Members

Platinum Pass (Renewing a Pass):
$635 for Non-FL Residents
$549 for FL Residents
$549 for DVC Members

Platinum Plus Pass (Renewing a Pass):
$705 for Non-FL Residents
$619 for FL Residents
$619 for DVC Members

How is that not a discount for FL Residents? Add in the monthly payment plan that's available and it's pretty clear how there is a discount. Sure it's less of a discount than it used to be, because the increase is greater for FL Residents than Non-FL Residents, but it's still an average discount of $94 for being an FL Resident ($100 Discount on New Passes, $86 Discount on Renewals)

^Chill out, I was reading the email form a phone and msised the graphic with all of the levels. Besides I said " you have to be a FL resident to purchase certein levels" and four of the six annual pass levels are only available to FL Residents or DVC members, and three of the pass levels are for FL residents only (didn't it used to FL and GA residents?).

This may sound weird but I've always looked at pass pricing almost like they offer the two highest levels at an increased price to non residents/DVC members more so than at a discount to residents/DVC memebrs.

No disrespect meant (sorry if it came off that way), completely understand you. I've fallen victim to missing an image when browsing on my phone before as well.

No idea about the FL and GA residents though, I've only had my pass for a few years though.

No worries, it was probably the Monday in me reading the post to begin with.

Were were considering the Silver pass but the gold is pretty enticing. Our problem with previous seasonal passes is that friends and family always seem to want to visit in the Summer when most seasonal passes would be blacked out, but $550 for a full year excpet 2 weeks at christmas and 2 weeks at spring break is worth considering now that our daught is old enough to drop in for a day without it being moretoruble than it's worth. The silver is still pretty resonable for $390, I'd prefer nto to go in the Summer anyways.

I was planning to get a SeaWorld/Busch Gardens for Mako and Cobras curse but that might have to wait a year. I'll probably wait and see if SeaWorld puts their passes on BOGO for Black Friday again.

We did Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party again last night. I really love this event! Seriously, it is my personal favorite "Orlando Halloween Event!" As much as I do like and appreciate the "haunts" going around with family & friends riding a bunch of our favorite rides with no lines dressed up in costume and getting stupidly ridiculous amounts of candy and watching some of the best family-friendly theme park shows that exist is just my kind of fun!

Here's some photos from last night...

It was the longest line but only about 30-40 minutes.
