Disney World snack price increases - January 2022
Posted: Monday January 10, 2022 1:03ppm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The new year has brought a new round of price increases at snack locations and restaurants throughout Walt Disney World.

Fan-favorite Mickey Premium Bar and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwiches now cost $6.25, previously $6.

The legendary Dole Whip has gone up by a whole dollar from $5.99 to $6.99.

Mickey pretzels have increased from $7 to $7.50. Cotton Candy has gone up a quarter to $5.25.

Bottled soda has been bumped up to $5.

At the restaurants across Walt Disney World, the pricing of most menu items has increased by a couple of dollars.

While price increases are a normal part of business, they come at a difficult time as guests are asked to pay more and more for their visits to Walt Disney World through recent initiatives, including Disney Genie+, rising ticket prices, and increases to resort rates.

Yup, just plain churros...lol Chocolate sauce I was fine with, but didn't really want to pay an extra buck for it

I assume that you eat those churros with no sauce right? Dulce de Leche, Cajeta, etc.. are all milk based.

Dole whips (pineapple) actually have no dairy, completely vegan and gluten free.

Hey, I'm very lactose intolerant, so I tend to avoid Mickey Bars and Dole Whips...so all that's really left is churros, popcorn, and pretzels....and churros is the tastiest out of the bunch! And yea about the full dishes increases. Surprisingly, the ronto wraps didn't increase in price. Actually they've always remained $12.99 ever since GE opened in 2019!!

I was at Music last week. The day I arrived, I went down to vending machine with $3 thinking that would be enough for a bottle of water. Such a fool I was 🤣

Never imagined a churro aficionado.. also that churro price increase is brutal. Seems all full dishes increased on average 1 whole USD.

With all these talks about food!, I decided to take a detailed look at what I spent on foodie and snacks during my recent trip, before the recent increases. This was made easy thanks to mobile ordering!!: 12/20/2021 - AK, HS, MK Churro w/ chocolate sauce (Dinoland) - $6.60 Slow-Roasted Sliced Grilled Beef Bowl (Satu'li Canteen) - $14.90 Churo (Popcorn Cart MK) - $5.50 Kid's Chicken Strips (Cosmic Ray's) - $7.98 12/21/2021 - AK, HS Churro (Harambe Market) - $5.50 Ronto Wrap (Ronto Roasters) - $13.83 Churro (Grand Avenue) - $5.50 12/22/2021 - AK Chili-Garlic Shrimp Bowl (Satu'li Canteen) - $14.90 Churro (Harambe Market) - $5.50 Hot Cocoa (Joffrey's Asia) - $3.50 12/23/2021 - HS Glazed Almonds (Nut Wagon HS) - $6.00 Jack Jack Cookie (Pixar Place Market) - $6.16 1/3 lb Angus Bacon Cheeseburger (Rosie's All-American Cafe) - $12.77 Churro (Pixar Place Market) - $5.50 12/24/2021 - EC Chocolate Croissant (Sunshine Seasons) - $4.25 Bratwurst (Sommerfest) - $10.96 Fried Plantains (La Cantina de San Angel) - $5.31 Mongolian Beef Combo (Lotus Blossome Cafe) - $14.38 Churros (La Cantina de San Angel) - $5.31 12/25/2021 - MK Fried Pot Stickers (Sunshine Tree Terrace) - $7.44 One of Each Spring Roll (Adventureland Cart) - $10.12 New England Clam Chowder Bowl (Columbia Harbor House) - $7.23 Mickey Minnie Christmas Tree Popcorn Bucket (Snack Cart) - $26.63 Churro (Snack Cart) - $5.50 12/26/2021 - DS Churro (Snack Cart) - $5.50 Total: $216.76 So over the course of 6 days at the parks, I spent about $217 on food. Waiting hours in super long lines like FoP and ROTR really consumes your time for any proper meals, just snacks here and there...which I guess is a good thing lol.. Oh, and did I mention that I love churros?! :) Also did some comparisons for the recent increases and..: Grilled Beef Bowl - 13.99 to 14.49 Kid's Chicken Strips - 7.49 to 7.99 Chili-Garlic Shrimp Bowl - 14.99 to 15.49 Hot Cocoa: 3.29 to 3.49 Jack Jack Cookie - 5.79 to 6.19 Angus Bacon - 11.99 to 12.29 Mexico Churros - 4.99 to 5.89 China rice meal - 13.50 to 14.50 Germany Bratwurst - 10.29 to 10.79 Total increases: $5.09 ($4.80 w/out tax) The biggest offender is those churros at the Mexico pavilion!!

Someday, I'll hopefully be able to tell my grandkids, "I remember when Mickey bars cost only $4. Before the dark times. Before Bob." "Which one, grandpa?" "Yes"

HauntedPirateFeb 08, 2022

You. Do. Not. Care. To. Listen. To Bob. Speak? Seriously, though, he is painful to listen to. FTFY. ;) He has all the charm of a flaming bag of poo.

Casper GutmanFeb 08, 2022

Nah, Chapek is what he is. He doesn't have D'Amaro's ability to hide between insincere boardroom smarm and to pretend that he actually really, really cares about employees and guests you guys.

ToTBellHopFeb 08, 2022

Lord knows any tough pill is easier to swallow when he is the nurse instead of Chapek. Next time I hear Chapek speak will be too soon.

HauntedPirateFeb 08, 2022

Expect many PR appearances around the time ticket prices increase. I hear they will have a few paramedics on stand-by for those who swoon over him.

ToTBellHopFeb 08, 2022

For D’Amaro, February is “the most wonderful time of the year!”

HauntedPirateFeb 08, 2022

Sadly, I don't think a ticket price hike is too far away.
