The 2024 Preschool card allows for FREE unlimited visits to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island for children ages 5 and younger through December 31, 2024.

The Preschool Card is only available to Florida residents and you MUST register online first. You will not be able to take advantage of this deal at the theme park. NOTE: You must register online and redeem at the parks by April 30, 2024.

If your child happens to turn six this year, you can still snag this deal as long as your child is 5 years old when you register online and redeem the card at the gate. Foster parents can also take advantage of this deal.

Here’s how it works–once you complete the online registration, print out the voucher and bring it to the ticket window at one of the theme parks to redeem the Preschool Card along with ALL of the following:

  • Your registration confirmation
  • Your child’s birth certificate (copy is fine) or travel passport
  • Your Florida resident ID

A parent/guardian does not have to be present to redeem the voucher, but they will need all of the above documents. The Preschool Card does not include free parking or discounts, but it does include a yearlong of FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

The Preschool Card is even more awesome because it includes admission to our favorite weekends at Busch Gardens…Sesame Street Safari of Fun Kids’ Weekends on select dates throughout the year and special events like Christmas Town!

While you’re snagging this deal for the little ones, get your BOGO Fun Card for yourself and older siblings! Purchase a Fun Card for Busch Gardens for $99.99 and get a Fun Card for Adventure Island for FREE (this combo is normally $194.99)! This will get you year-round admission to both parks–blackout dates apply. This BOGO deal will end soon too.

FYI: There are more FREE Preschool Passes available to Florida kids. Though the 2024 registration dates have closed, keep them in mind for 2025!
