The Florida Resident Discover Disney special is a three-day ticket for $159 plus tax or a four-day ticket for $179 plus tax.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that it’s a 14 percent increase from the previous January offers in 2017 and 2016 when the three-day ticket cost $139 for Florida residents. However, Disney says there are no blockout dates this year.

Proof of Florida residency is required.

The tickets are valid for one park — Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot or Animal Kingdom — per day unless the tickets are upgraded to park hoppers, which cost an additional $30 plus tax on the three-day ticket and $37.50 plus tax on the four-day ticket.

Disneyland Loses Power on One of the Busiest Days of the Year

A power outage hit Disneyland in California, affecting dozens of attractions on Wednesday.

The outage started before 11 a.m. local time and hit Mickey’s Toontown and Fantasyland, according to a Disneyland representative.

As of early evening, power was restored “to all areas of the resort,” the company said, and Disneyland was expected to be “fully operational … as attractions come back online.”

Earlier, guests were escorted off rides until power was restored. A representative for the park said they were not aware of any people still stranded on rides.

The Anaheim Fire Department said it has not been tapped for any rescues.

“We escorted guests off of rides as part of standard procedure until the power was restored,” Disney representative Elva Rubalcava said, adding that power has been restored to a majority of the park, although some rides may still be affected.

The 85-acre theme park averages about 44,000 visitors a day, and holiday weeks are among its busiest times of the year.

Park officials attributed the outage to an issue with a resort transformer.

“We’ve determined that the issue is with a Disneyland Resort transformer and our team is currently assessing and working to restore power,” officials said in a statement released to KABC.

A representative for Disneyland said they do not plan to offer refunds to park visitors as of now.
