There were some surprising happenings in Disney World this week!
Let’s be honest here — food at Disney World can be expensive.
You can buy a whole meal off of McDonald’s dollar menu sometimes for less than it’ll cost you to buy a box of popcorn. And Disney’s prices are only getting steeper. Recently, we saw literally HUNDREDS of price increases hit a whole bunch of items including popcorn buckets, DOLE Whips, and more. But what do price increases have to do with the Disney Dining Plan? Well, here’s what we’ve seen.
Yesterday was…a LOT.
We saw literally HUNDREDS of price increases hit items at restaurants, lounges, and snack stands throughout Disney World’s theme parks, water parks, resort hotels, and more. Some of the increases were pretty small — only a matter of a few cents — but others were larger, in amounts of $1, $2, or even $3. They might seem small at first, but these increased costs can add up over a trip. There are a LOT of price increases to sort through though. Which price increases do you REALLY need to know about? We’re breaking that all down right here!
We’re still getting updates from Disney World with online menus, so we’ll likely learn more information throughout the day, but we’re already seeing some of these changes in effect in the parks. And now, we can add popcorn buckets and refills to that list.
Price increases happen frequently in Disney World, but today we got a BUNCH of new ones.
Several food items all across Disney World got bumped up in price, including the fan-favorite Dole Whip. And now, it looks like another famous snack is joining that list!
Price increases happen pretty frequently in Disney World.
While using the phrase “price increase” may make you think of theme park tickets or hotel rooms, it’s not always that massive. We’ve often seen small price increases at restaurants or on popular merchandise items. And today, a famous snack got a price increase in Disney World!
Want to hear something mind-blowing 🤯? When the Magic Kingdom first opened in Florida, park tickets were cheaper than a Starbucks drink is today! Obviously, the cost of living has increased over time, but does anyone else wish prices could just stay still for a minute?! In Disney World, we’ve noticed price increases all over the parks and resorts lately.
Next time you’re in Disney World and you’re craving an iced coffee from Starbucks, you might notice that your bill is a little higher than it used to be. That’s right, we noticed a few price increases just arrived at the Starbucks locations in the Disney parks.
When it comes to dining outside of the Disney World parks, Disney Springs has no shortage of options. Whether you’re looking for a quick (but DELICIOUS) meal at Chicken Guy! or a nice sit-down experience by the water, there’s truly something for everyone.
If you’re looking for an atmospheric, well-themed restaurant with some incredible food, The Edison might be the place for you! This “Industrial Gothic”-style restaurant has live entertainment, fun drinks, and even some bacon on a clothesline! We’ve had some fun meals at this little restaurant tucked deep back in Disney Springs, but recently we noticed some price changes that you should know about.
Supply chain issues have been making an impact everywhere, including in Disney World.
Recently we reported on the supply chain issues affecting chicken tenders. In the past we also shared about how some ketchup issues impacted the parks. Now another meat product is facing rising prices. Check out what you might have to pay more for soon.
