PHOTOS: Park Specific Reusable Bag Prices Raised Across Walt Disney World

“Reduce, Reuse, Spend More Money.” Just months after their release and hours after the announcement of a slew of price increases throughout the Walt Disney World resort, it appears the prices of the ever-popular park-themed reusable bags have also gone up exponentially (for reusable bags, anyway.)

The bags now range in price from $2.00 to $3.00 from the smallest to the largest size, up a whopping $1.00 each.

Reusable Shopping Bags Pricing, circa February 2019, (colorized.)

Back when they were first released, they started at just $1.00 each for the smallest ones, which seemed reasonable at the time. It’s bewildering to think they’d start charging more for essentially the same product, without so much as even introducing new designs.

Among other price increases we saw take effect today include Annual Passes for Florida residents, Out-of-State guests, and DVC members, as well as overnight parking fees at Walt Disney World resorts.

Shoutout to our reader and Instagram follower Jacob for the photo of the new signage with updated pricing!

Fortunately for Disney, people are stupid.

Disney management are a bunch of greedy b*st*rds who have sucked the fun from WDW. They obviously want it to be a playground for only the wealthy.

I picture the person making all these price hike decisions like Scrooge looking for ways to take more money from folks in Mickey’s Christmas Carol! Enough is enough already, geez!

Even at $3 that’s much cheaper than comparable bags at grocery stores.

Wow. This to me is worse than the passes. First they take away the bags because of environmental reasons…ok. The new bags are nice and worth a dollar. Seems acceptable. Basically adding a 2-3 surcharge to every purchase just seems over the top. Are these bags made in china? Could this be a passing down of tariffs?

The thickness and quality of the material is not worth the price. Could not believe that when I was there in April – I brought my own shopping bags into the park to avoid purchasing these. Even when I go to the local Disney Store I bring my own bags now so I am not charged for a thin reusable bag that really doesn’t last all that long.

They still have the free plastic bags.

We get charged for plastic bags where I live, so we use a lot of reusable bags. I am not sure these are the same materials, but the reusable I got from a Disney Store lasted about 2 months before getting a hole. That’s an insanely short time. BYOB if you’re going to shop in the parks.

I guess the lower price was to ease you into the fact that they would eventually be doing away with the complimentary plastic bags when purchasing an item. It’s just another money grabbing move by Disney which is very disappointing to say the least.

It is so sad that Disney makes you buy bags when making purchases. I guess the 12 Billion dollars they make yearly is not enough.
P.S. Don’t give me this crap that’s it’s for the environment.

As someone who works for the company, I completely agree with you. It would make sense for Disney to just give away the reusable bags with purchases. It upsets me that they upcharged the prices of the bags because the bags aren’t even that great. I literally just bought a bag yesterday at Magic Kingdom, and it tore before I even got on the monorail. I know that we still give away the plastic bags purchases unless they tell us they’d like the reusable, but I’m afraid that they’ll make us stop that soon.

They charge in NY as well, but first Florida does not have that law so really no reason for Disney to. If they are truly doing it to protect the environment there is no need to charge that price for the bag, no reason to make any profit on the bag… they are making more than enough profit on the item you purchasing. Shame on them. I love Disney have been going since they opened, but enough is enough. I understand they are a business, but they are out of hand.

I agree. The price increase was in really bad taste. It shows they care more about making money than helping the environment.

This is disappointing to me. I guess they don’t realize that by increasing the price, fewer people are going to decide to make the eco-friendly choice. Next time I can bring my own reusable bag but there’s lots of tourists who might not want to pack them…
