Food and beverage prices have increased at nearly ALL venues throughout Walt Disney World Resort, including carts, quick service, table service, and prix fixe.
Food & Beverage Prices Increase Throughout Walt Disney World Resort
The price increases impact hundreds of items across several locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort. The increases range from $0.20 to several dollars, depending on the item and location.
The spikes affect both non-location-specific items and menu offerings unique to individual locations. For example, a standard cup of regular Freshly Brewed Joffrey’s Coffee now costs $3.79 per serving, an increase from $3.49. A standard 20-ounce bottle of Powerade now costs $4.99 at some locations, an increase from $4.69. The price of the Nestle Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar, a Walt Disney World Resort staple, is now $6.29 at ice cream and snack carts (an increase from $5.99), with some locations charging even more.
Snacks and treats like pretzels, churros, and DOLE Whips have also experienced price increases, with the specifics of the increases being dependent on the item’s sides/toppings and the location at which you purchase them.
The price hikes also impact items like cheeseburgers, pizza, and beverages, both soft and alcoholic, at quick service locations. Several different dining locations throughout Walt Disney World offer their own takes on these items, and nearly all of them have increased (though marginally) in price.
For example, the price of Triple-B Burger at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Magic Kingdom has increased from $12.79 to $13.49. The Cheese Pizza at PizzeRizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has increased from $10.79 per serving to $11.29. Prices for standard servings of soda have increased at several locations.
Prices have also increased at table service restaurants with both item-based and prix fixe pricing structures. The changes impact nearly every restaurant, but just to list a few examples: nearly every entree, milkshake, and alcoholic beverage on the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant menu at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has increased in price from anywhere between $0.25 and $3. Hopping over to Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano in the same park, nearly all items on the lunch and dinner menus have increased by $1–$2.
Be Our Guest in the Fantasyland section of Magic Kingdom, a restaurant with a prix fixe menu, now costs $70 per adult and $41 per child for both lunch and dinner, an increase from $67 and $39, respectively. Prix fixe pricing has also increased for both breakfast and dinner at ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort; breakfast was previously $45 per adult and $29 per child but is now $49 per adult and $30 per child. Dinner is now priced at $62 per adult and $40 per child, increasing from $59 and $38.
