Walt Disney World Raises the Price of Beverages and Snacks

Disney Free Dining Promotion 2017 - Will the dates be announced soon?

With new hotels, attractions and acquisitions to pay for, it looks like Disney is once again relying on its theme park guests to help pay for it all. And now a soft pretzel at Walt Disney World will cost you $7.

Disney’s fiscal year ended at the end of September, and it would appear that it’s time for some more price hikes. In addition to the sudden announcement of date-based ticket pricing, the Mouse is also raising food prices.

Twitter user Rachel Faith has post a menu from a Walt Disney World snack cart that shows that food prices have increased exponentially.

In addition to the $7 pretzels, Disney has raised bottled sodas to $4.50 (up from $4), fountain sodas to $3.29 for a regular and $3.79 for a large to $3.99 for a regular and $4.49 for a large.

Want water instead? It’s been raised too, with bottled water prices rising from $3.00 to $3.50.

Ice cream novelties have risen to $5.75, up from $5 in June, while frozen bananas have risen by fifty cents to $5.75.

And the ever popular Churro? That will be $6.25 — an increase of $1.75.


As the demand for the magic increases, and the Disney empire increases in size and scope, expect prices to continue to rise.

I mean, someone’s got to pay for that fancy new streaming service, right?
