This morning at Chip and Co., we ran an article announcing that Walt Disney World is once again offering 3 or 4-day Florida Resident tickets providing a nice discount for locals visiting the theme parks from January 4 to June 24th, 2018. For complete details of this special offer click here.
There’s one thing in particular about this discount that has us excited (other than the amazing savings). If we look back to when Disney ran the Florida Resident Ticket Discount last year (2017) the offer was valid from January through until June 9th. However, Animal Kingdom ran blackout dates during the opening of Pandora: The World of Avatar which premiered on Memorial Day weekend. This makes sense as Disney would not want to offer deep discounts during a hotly anticipated opening weekend.
So what does this mean for Toy Story Land? We know via official word from Disney that Hollywood Studios ‘newest expansion is slated to open up in the Summer of 2018. This led many Disney insiders to speculate that Memorial Day Weekend might once again be chosen for the launch. However, if we look at the Florida Resident Ticket Discount for this year, there are no blackout dates suggested for Hollywood Studios. It seems unlikely that Disney would offer discounted tickets during Toy Story Land’s opening. This has us wondering if the Florida Resident Ticket Offer might point to an end of June opening for Toy Story Land?
Though this may spell bad news for those heading to Disney in late May or early June that were hoping for a Memorial Day launch, it is consistent with Disney’s suggestion of a Summer opening.
Readers should note that this is mere speculation based on the above-mentioned ticket discounts and that Disney has yet to announce an official opening date for Toy Story Land. This is something that we here at Chip and Co. will continue to monitor closely. Readers are encouraged to keep following along for the latest Toy Story Land news.
