According to Report Disney World Food Prices Have Out-Paced Inflation

Hold onto your Mickey ears! A new report by Finance Buzz reveals that food prices at Walt Disney World have skyrocketed a whopping 61% over the past 10 years. That’s significantly higher than the 56% increase in single-park ticket prices during the same period. Even more surprising, the average inflation rate for the last decade was only 32%. This means a trip to the “happiest place on Earth” is getting pricier, especially when it comes to snacks and treats.

“Prices for every single item have risen by at least $1.50, with most going up by at least $2 since 2014,” Finance Buzz wrote in its study. “But while food costs have skyrocketed, the base price for the most affordable Disney World tickets has remained remarkably stable, going up just $19 from 2014 to 2024.”

To crunch the numbers, researchers used the Wayback Machine, a digital archive, to compare current food and beverage prices on the Walt Disney World website with historical prices listed on older versions of the site.


Get ready for sticker shock! Beloved treats like the Dole Whip dessert and the Mickey Mouse-shaped ice cream bar have seen price hikes of 58% and 63% respectively over the past decade.
