If you’ve visited any of the Disney parks in the past few years, you’ll surely have noticed some major differences. Of course, most of the changes can be attributed to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the problem brought with string to keep thousands of guests safe per day.
Another change has been the constant price changes at the parks. From tickets and food to special experiences and merchandise, it seems like a trip to Disney just keeps getting more and more expensive. And speaking of merchandise, several Disney fans have noticed that the prices of a few merchandise have quietly increased.

All of the 50th anniversary-themed merchandise has been hot items since release, so it makes sense that Disney is raising the price, but it’s a shame that guests will have to spend more money on the same items they would have could get a few months ago. .
While a slight change in merchandise prices is common, the cut has gone from $35.00 to $50.00, a pretty big price jump for even the most dedicated Disney fans. This is likely due in part to the supply chain issues the world is facing, with materials taking longer and being more expensive to ship. But the fact that prices seemingly went up overnight has us wondering what could have been increased at Disney parks.
In the past, we’ve also covered the increasingly expensive food, with potion sizes shrinking. Customers have encountered lackluster food more than once, which is disappointing considering the average price of a quick-service meal is between $12.00 and $20.00. After seeing these videos, we’ll have to be on the lookout for the next price hike in the future.
