Travel Dates: January 1 – June 3, 2010
Walt Disney World has released special room only discounts for Florida Residents. You must check in during the travel dates, however, you can extend your stay pass the ending date. Only the nights included in the travel dates listed above will be discounts. Availability is limited, though all resorts and room types are available.
There is a blackout period between March 27 – April 10, 2010. You cannot check in during the blackout period, and nights during the blackout period will not be discounted. Edit: as of March 5, 2010, Disney has removed the black out dates, you can now travel during that time and receive a discount.
Please note this is a two part discount., stays 5 nights and longer receive a slightly better discount than stays of 4 nights or less.
Some Sample Nightly Rates (5+ nights):
Pop Century, standard room: $53 – $81 per night
Caribbean Beach, standard view room: $94 – $122 per night

The Travel Dates span value, peak and regular season, each night is priced separately, depending upon the season.
These prices are per night, and do not include the 12.5% room tax. Not all nights, weekend and weekday nights, are the same price, some weekend nights appear to be not available with the discount.
In the past, Disney had also released special Florida Resident MYW package discounts. The packages are based on the reduced room rates above, and include a FL resident MYW ticket and the option of adding on of the Disney Dining plans. At this point, the package does not appear to be an option, though I will update this thread if it becomes available.
