It Now Costs $89 to Ride Space Mountain

By June 4, 2012

Follow me on:

It doesn't seem like all that long ago that Disney World raised its one-day, one-park ticket price to the head-turning threshold of $50. (In fact, it was 2002, a mere ten years ago.) Yesterday, the Mouse upped its tickets at the Florida resort from $85 to $89, a 4.7% increase. Disney World typically introduces an annual price increase in June at the start of the summer vacation season. At this rate, it won't be too long before a ride on Space Mountain will soar pass the head-snapping $100 price point. Yeesh!

Interestingly, Universal Orlando raised its 2012 prices a few days before Disney, but settled on $88 for its one-day, one-park ticket. (See my previous blog.) Will it now match its bigger neighbor?

All of Disney World's other ticket prices, including admission to its water parks and annual passes have also gone up. If you are thinking about visiting Mickey in Florida, I have a detailed overview of Disney's somewhat confusing ticket program to help demystify it and steer you to the best deal -- all the more important since the price increase.

In the meantime (february 2014) ticket prices have gone up to 99 dollars for Magic Kingdom and 94 dollars for the other parks… so your prediction about breaking the 100 dollar point seems to come true soon enough. Fortunately there is discounts…
