    Disneyland and Walt Disney World raised parking prices -- again. Disneyland and Walt Disney World raised admission prices -- again. Now it's time for Disneyland and Walt Disney World to raise food prices -- again.

    Your favorite Disney snacks are now more expensive
    Travel+Leisure, Oct 10 2018

    Dole Whip, Mickey-shaped pretzels, cotton candy — they’re all crowd pleasers and some of the best foods you’ll find at Disney parks. Only problem is, these salty treats and frozen sweets are about to cost you significantly more than on your last Orlando vacation. Food and drink prices have increased at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts.

    Snack prices have changed across the board at the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. Popcorn and cotton candy now cost $5 each, up from $4.50, and churros cost $5.25, up from $4.50. Mickey pretzels with cheese are now $7, up from $6 — cheese is not optional, requiring guests to spend the extra buck — and Mickey ice cream bars are $5.75, up from $5. The cost of the chocolate-covered delights have increased 35% in the past three years.

    Dole Whip, the pineapple soft-serve, is up fifty cents for cups (now $4.99) and floats (now $5.99). Turkey legs now cost $1.50 more, going for $13.25 each at Epcot’s Fife & Drum Tavern. Bottled drinks are up a full dollar at the Florida resort, from $3.50 to $4.50, and bottled water is now $3.50, up from $3. Fountain drink prices have increased at both Disney parks, with regular-sized sodas increasing from $3.29 at Walt Disney World and $3.59 at Disneyland to $3.99 at both parks.

    At Disneyland, many snack prices have stayed firm — churros are still $4.75, Mickey pretzels $5.25 (plus an optional dollar for cheese) — but one popular item has changed: popcorn. A scoop will now cost $5, up from $4.50. Cream cheese-stuffed pretzels were $4.79 last July. Now, they're $7.

    Spoiler alert: The Spaceship Earth attraction is not a spaceship.

    Disney to close Spaceship Earth at Epcot for two years
    ComicBook.com, Oct 12 2018

    The Walt Disney World Resort will close its Spaceship Earth attraction in 2020 for a two-year refurbishment, re-opening during Epcot’s 40th anniversary in 2022. The overhaul comes as the park undergoes a facelift to become "more timeless, more relevant, more family-friendly and more Disney."

    As part of "Project Gamma," dubbed so by Walt Disney Imagineers, Spaceship Earth’s makeover will be so thorough the ride will have to undergo a two-year closure to overhaul its ride track and extend the ride length. Disney is also reported to be eyeing construction on new loading and unloading areas and the construction of new structures and a redone post-show building.

    The innards of Spaceship Earth will see every scene refreshed through the Industrial Revolution segment, with major changes to alter the remainder of the ride, culminating in the ending dome scene that will be re-imagined using the latest projection mapping technologies when giving guests a look at earth from space. Its famous shell will see the sphere similarly covered in projection mapping, giving onlookers a colorful nighttime display. Changes to Epcot comes as Disney is bringing a Marvel-inspired coaster to the park, bringing the east coast its first Guardians Of The Galaxy theme park attraction.
