Snack Prices Rise Around Disney World Parks
We hate to be the ones to break the bad news, but it looks as though Disney has raised prices on some of our favorite snack items. The price hikes have affected a variety of items across the Walt Disney World Resort. This change comes into effect following the recent news of Disney’s new ticket pricing system.
While this is bad news for those paying out of pocket, anyone utilizing one of Disney’s Dining Plans won’t be feeling the hit. In fact, your snack credits are about to become a whole lot more valuable!
Snack and Beverage Increases
Here is a breakdown of the price increases we have seen so far:
- Mickey Pretzels $7 (originally $6)
- Mickey Ice Cream and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich $5.75 (originally $5)
- Popcorn $5 (originally $4.25)
- Popcorn Bucket Refills $2 (originally $1.75)
- Bottled Water $3.50 (originally $3)
- Bottled Soda $4.50 (originally $3.50)
- Churro $6.25 (originally $5.50)
- Dole Whip $4.99 (originally $4.49)
- Regular Fountain Drink $3.99 (originally $3.29)
- Large Fountain Drink $4.49 (originally $3.49)
- Turkey Leg $13.25 (originally $11.75)
It appears Quick Service Kid’s meals (at quick service locations) and a handful of Food and Wine Festival items have been affected by the hike as well. Some prices have seen increases as much as $1.00.
These new prices will certainly be forcing guests to reach deeper into their pockets for a bottle of water or a beloved Mickey Ice Cream bar. Now more than ever, you’re going to want to do the math and determine if a dining plan is right for you. Likewise, perhaps it’s time to start packing a few snacks inside your park bag for your afternoon energy boost. Either way, you’ll want to be prepared for the change.
