I have a 2-year Pass on EZpay monthly payments and my Pass says “Gold” on it. Will I receive the benefits of the new Florida Gold Annual Passes?

No. In the past, the term “Gold” stood for our 2-year Annual Passes, which had the same benefits as 1-year Annual Passes. Active 1-year or 2-year Florida Parks Annual Pass Members (not including Platinum Pass Members) will receive the benefits associated with a Silver Annual Pass including admission to the designated park(s), free parking, and in-park discounts.
