Disney announced today that they will stop offering $700 tent rentals on February 17.

Tucked away near Space Mountain in Tomorrowland the cabanas, which were more like rental tents you'd see at a wedding, were introduced last November, and ran for a mere $645, which comes out to about $691 with tax.

Disney later dropped the price to $500.

The party tents, which held up to 8 people, included amenities like coveted shade, charging outlets, a lockable storage trunk, food delivery service, mini-fridge, light snacks, water and sodas, and, of course, Mickey ears.
