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?
