Heads up, all! Big news on the Disney price increase front: there is a price hike to fountain beverages AND iconic snacks around Disney World counter service locations and snack carts.
Developing Story! Read On For UPDATES!
During our recent visit to Magic Kingdom (October 1st), the standard price for a regular Fountain Beverage was $3.29. However, today (October 2nd), DFB reader Shelley C. reported that she was seeing the price listed for regular sized Fountain Beverages as $3.99.
In taking a peek around Mobile Order menus on the My Disney Experience app, this does indeed appear to be the case in several locations. A quick search around reveals the $3.99 price tag for Fountain Beverages at Casey’s Corner, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, and Columbia Harbour House.
No pun intended, but… GULP! That’s a pretty significant increase, don’t you think?
But that’s not all… we’re also tracking increases to other iconic park snacks like Churros, Mickey Pretzels, and even Popcorn. For instance, snack carts in Epcot Future World have seen increases. Cool Wash sells classic Frozen Slush drinks, which have gone up from $4.50 to $5.50.
Not only that, but you’ll also notice that regular bottled water has increased to $3.50 (from $3.00) and bottled soda selections are now $4.50 (from $3.50). This change is being seen pretty much across the board from what we’ve seen so far at any location selling bottled water and soda.
Pretzels are now $7.00, up from $6.00 (both Mickey Soft Pretzels and other varieties).
Popcorn pricing has also been affected. Though Refillable Popcorn Buckets remain at $10.00, the refills are now up to $2.00 (from $1.75) and the individual boxes are now $5.00. Cotton Candy is $5.00, too.
At the Popcorn Cart by Mission Space, you’ll also find Churros which have gone up to $5.25. However, note that these are not served with chocolate sauce here. In locations where a Churro is served with chocolate sauce, they have been spotted at $6.25.
Fife & Drum Tavern is your stop in Epcot for another iconic park item: Turkey Legs. They are now priced at $13.25 (previously $11.75). You’ll notice the updated Pretzel pricing here, among other items, too.
And, yes… MICKEY BARS (and other ice cream novelties) have gone up, too. One Premium Mickey Ice Cream Bar will run you $5.75 (whereas it was previously $5.00).
Another famous treat to increase in price? Dole Whip. At Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom, you’ll now find a Dole Whip cup for $4.99 (from $4.49), a Pineapple Float for $5.99 (from $5.49) and the Dole Whip Pineapple Upside Down Cake for $6.99 (from $6.49).
