Noted as one of the world’s most popular and beloved destination resorts for nearly half a century, Disney World in Florida hosts more than 48 million guests every year — 20.4 million of which pass through the flagship Magic Kingdom alone. If you want to visit the wonderful world of Disney, you’re going to have to purchase Disney World tickets — and the cost of entry for that magical world has risen dramatically over the years.
GOBankingRates examined how admission fees have changed since the theme park opened in 1971 through 2017, according to data from AllEars.net. Next, GBR calculated what the rate would have been for every year when considering the effect of inflation according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator. Prices for Disneyland tickets or entrance fees for other theme parks were not considered; all data is for the price of general admission Magic Kingdom tickets at Disney World only.
