Wishables and nuiMOs both jumped a few dollars in price, restaurants in EPCOT like Chefs de France and Teppan Edo had price increases on their menus, and souvenir experiences like building a lightsaber in Hollywood Studios saw jumps in cost as well. Now, we’re seeing another big Disney World item get a price hike in the parks!
One STAPLE of a Disney vacation is a solid souvenir.
For many, the best Disney World souvenir is a brand new refillable souvenir popcorn bucket. Typically, we see new buckets released every few months or so to commemorate one event or another. But we have to say, the buckets are FEW and FAR BETWEEN this year. We might go so far as to say we’re in a drought — The Great Disney World Popcorn Bucket Drought of 2021.
Alright folks, you may want to sit down for this one. We’ve seen some bizarre Disney World souvenirs over the years, but nothing quite compares to what you can find at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
While we were checking out Wilderness Lodge Mercantile today to scope out the latest must-haves, we came across our favorite collection of chapsticks.
Every now and then we come across souvenirs in Disney World that are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. And no, we aren’t talking about those head-scratching $14 Mickey balloons that are perhaps a tad overpriced. Think instead a one-of-a-kind replica Cinderella Castle that costs a measly $37, 500, or those STUNNING hand-crafted tables we spotted at Festival of the Arts for $30,000.
We didn’t stumble across anything that was THAT expensive on our recent trip to Magic Kingdom, but the price tag on these glass bowls still made our eyes basically pop out of our head.
Do you have a trip to Walt Disney World coming up soon?
If so, there’s a place you may want to stop even BEFORE you arrive at the Resort. If you’re landing at the Orlando International Airport (MCO), you can grab your new Mickey Ears right when you get off the plane! [Read more…]
If there’s anything we can all agree on, it’s that Disney World souvenirs can cost a pretty penny! While some may consider certain merchandise worth the splurge, other items leave us scratching our heads as we wonder how long it’s going to take us to fill up our piggy banks to be able to afford it!
We polled our readers the other day asking if they’ve ever splurged on a balloon at Disney World (‘cuz they ain’t cheap!), and we were surprised in the best way possible to hear your responses!
