To get the deal, the Disney passes must be purchased online.

ORLANDO— Walt Disney World is now allowing Florida residents to spread the cost of an annual park pass over 12 months.

The company won't charge extra for the installment plan, but the passes must be purchased online. Unlimited access to Orlando-area Disney parks costs $393 for an adult Florida resident and $346 for a child 3 to 9 years old. Both require a down payment similar to the cost of same-day, single-park tickets for nonresidents — $84 for adults and $72 for children.

Competitors SeaWorld and Universal Orlando already offered installment plans for unrestricted yearly passes. Adult tickets for Universal cost $220 — including a $71 down payment — while a pass for SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens and two affiliated water parks can be had for 12 payments of roughly $20 each.

  5. As St. Petersburg's Jabil Circuit broadens its business, it shrinks its name to Jabil


    St. Petersburg's Fortune 500 company, Jabil Circuit, informally tossed aside the "Circuit" in its name some time ago. That's because circuit board manufacturing, the company's core business for decades, has been squeezed out by a broader business agenda ranging from consumer packaging to supply chain management.

    Jabil Circuit informally dropped "Circuit" from its marketing material and signage, like at its St. Petersburg headquarters, years ago. Now it's official.
