Calling all college students! The Most Magical Place On Earth just became more affordable than ever. Well, for those pursuing higher education, at least. Disney just announced that college students now have the opportunity to save big on their Walt Disney World tickets, making it easier and cheaper for you and your college friends to visit Mickey Mouse.
Disney Parks have offered group rates for years. But as of today, they are letting college kids know that they are among the groups allowed to take advantage of discounted rates. There’s only one catch: you have to visit Disney World with a group of 10 or more people. So gather up all your college dorm buddies and roommates and head to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
Information about the specially priced tickets for college students can actually be found on the Disney Youth Programs official website. While college students are adults, they are still in school and count as a “school group” if they plan to visit with a large group of their peers from college, which is probably why Disney has them included in the Disney Youth tickets offer.
