Disney World prices are on the rise across many categories. Here are 5 Disney World Price Increases To Know.
1. Food & Drink
Guests at Disney World will now pay a bit more for a fountain beverage and more throughout the parks. Recently, we have seen price increases on many popular items. A bottled water went from $3.00 to $3.50. A Regular Soda is up to $3.99 from $3.29, Large Soda now at $4.49 up from $3.69. The popular Popcorn refillable bucket is now $10, was $93.9 with refills at $2 from $1.59 each.

Other price increases are also popping up throughout Disney World. Such as Be Our Guest in Magic Kingdom. Now costing $60 for adults (previously $55) and $36 for children (previously $35), remaining at 2 dining credits for those on the dining plan.
2. Theme Park Parking
Parking at a theme park just went up (again, as it increased within the last couple of years as well). The good news, once you pay for parking at one theme park, you will not have to pay at another theme park for the duration of that day as long as you show your receipt.
Disney Theme Park Parking Costs:
- $25 for vehicles (was $22)
- $30 for Oversized Vehicle Parking: Shuttle, Limo, Camper Trailer, RV, Bus or Tractor Trailer (was $27)
- $50 for preferred parking (guarantees you a spot near the entrance) (was $45)

Price of a solid color MagicBand has also increased. Presviously cost was $12.99 + tax. New price is now $14.99 + tax. Special characters ones are $24.99 + tax and limited release MagicBands are $29.99 + tax. The solid color MagicBand is still complimentary with a Disney Resort package.
5. Ticket-Based Pricing
This one isn’t necessarily an increase as some presume. Ticket prices are now based on your start date & length of ticket. This does mean some days will be more expensive to visit, as popularity of time of year is a factor in pricing, such as Holidays. However off-season times such as days in January and February may actually now cost less for tickets. Learn more on new online vacation planning tools and date-base ticket pricing.
