Also, good news about them being able to get in the parks whenever for the most part! The only other thing, is we are going down Dec. 5/6. I really wanted to see the Christmas parade being taped but I think that is usually a black out date as well for MK. Does anyone know that for sure? And if anyone has ever been to it, is it worth it?

I may just splurge for the AP's for my son, husband and myself if she still gets in pretty much all the time. Sure wish our son got a discount for being a student in Florida.

Thanks again for the information. I always know I can find out by coming here!!
Your son can get a Florida resident annual pass as long as he changed a bank account mailing address to Florida or has mail from his school.

Christmas parade is not worth it at all. It is crowded and you stand around for hours watching the same thing over and over. Plus you daughter will have to sign you guys up for it because the good spots are mostly filled with CMs who volunteered because they will tell you what to wear. The year my friends and I did it we wore green Christmas sweaters and it was still like 80 outside.

Thanks so much! His banking account was set up here and he has a job on campus and does direct deposit but he does have a mailbox at school. I hope that counts. I'll get him to ask about it!

And about the parade, that makes me feel better. We will just skip that then and head to the other parks that will hopefully be less crowded. I did think it would be fun though to say we were there when they taped.

Yeah if he gets mail to his campus bank account he should be fine. Even if he gets laud by direct deposit he should get a pay stub that has his fl address on it. I would call disney ticketing because they can tell you exactly what to bring but I know a lot of FL college kids who have residence pass but never changed their drivers license.

Here is the requirements to get the FL annual pass price from the website. I will say they want something exactly listed so a paystuf will not work; nor will just any addressed mail. I use the IL driver's license and my FL checking account statement.

They will but for the pre-thanksgiving days only and they must be bought from a Company D store before hand.

We went in for a Christmas day parade taping and we had a blast! Yes, it is the better part of a day and yes it will be the same thing multiple times but we had a lot of fun. I say if you can afford the day, Go For It!! It was VERY COOL to be able to say we had done a very Merry Christmas Day taping in the Magic Kingdom!!
