Just Arrived, Higher Food Prices at Disney World

It’s not a secret that prices have been rising for your Walt Disney World vacation. Recently, Walt Disney world changed their free fast pass system and replaced it with Genie+ and Lightning Lane. Just after this new system is in place, Disney has increased food prices across the parks and resorts.

Crowd favorite snacks are increasing. Some of the favorites that are increasing by a dollar are the Dole Whip going from $4.99 to $5.99 and the pineapple float changing from $5.99 to $6.99. The popular Mickey Ear Ice Cream is now $6.25 increasing by 25 cents. Popcorn buckets will now be $13, a $1.71 increase and the refills are now $2.25 which is an increase of .36 cents. The popular Mickey Pretzels have increased .50 cents. Soda in bottles will be $5 now.

Some Disney restaurants have increased the prices on their meals and limited their menus. PizzeRizzo is increasing by 50 cents as well as some dishes at the popular Regal Eagle Smokehouse. You will see $2 increases on dishes in Tony’s Town Square Restaurant and Steakhouse 71.

Cocktails are another item that will be more expensive to partake in at Disney World. Many are increasing by $1-$2 at places like Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace, Oga’s Cantina, and Enchanted Rose.

These are just some of the increases guests will need to budget for when visiting Walt Disney World. Let us know how you feel about these changes in the comments below.

    Not really Disneys fault everything is going up. It’s just away of life right now. With less people going on vacation they have to make cuts. I wish it would go back the way it was in the 80 s and early 90s it was so nice and relaxing.

    I am a huge a Disney fan and love traveling to Walt Disney World, but these changes seem to be getting a bit out of hand. First, they take away the free fast pass to a paid service. Next, they did away with the free busing from the airport to Disney resorts. Now, food price increases? These are vacations are going to no longer to be afforded by the average working man and his family. Walt would have never have wanted it this way in my opinion.

      I agree with you, Jen. Rising prices, eliminating some convenient services and now charging for shorter wait times all add up to a more expensive vacation at WDW, which already had very high food prices. Squeezing every dime out of your “guests” wasn’t what the Disney brothers had in mind for sure.
