4 BIG Price Increases in Disney World So Far This Year

When you’re planning a Disney World vacation, the cost can add up quicker than you might expect.

Cinderella Castle

Between hotel reservations, park tickets, dining reservations, and souvenirs, you can find yourself spending a pretty penny on your trip to the “most magical place on earth.” And, every once in a while, Disney tacks on a few dollars to popular experiences and merchandise. So, we collected four of the biggest price increases that we’ve already seen in 2021 so that you’re prepared when you come for your next visit!

These are the four BIGGEST price increases in Disney World so far this year!

Savi’s Workshop

We’re starting off with one of the most popular (and pricey) experiences that Disney World has over in Star Wars: Galaxy’s EdgeSavi’s Workshop. Here you can hide out on the planet of Batuu and forge your very own lightsaber, choosing a kyber crystal color and building your jedi weapon.

The experience was pricey already, but Disney increased the price from $199 to $219 back in April. And, keep in mind that this is the cost for building one lightsaber though one guest is allowed in with you to watch.

Disney has slowly been fading out their free MagicBand programs, no longer providing hotel guests with the perk and discontinuing it for Annual Passholders this fall. But, that hasn’t stopped people from buying the popular accessory that can be your room key, park pass, and “credit card” — though, it will cost you more now.

Single-Colored MagicBands

MagicBands have received about a $6 increase across the board with single-colored band increasing from $14.99 to $19.99, Bronze themed bands increasing from $24.99 to $29.99, and limited release Amethyst MagicBands going from $29.99 to $34.99.

Bronze MagicBands

Those who don’t want to pay the extra price can opt to use Disney’s free MagicMobile feature in the My Disney Experience, which is the virtual ticket option that Disney is transitioning to around the parks.

Face Masks

Another essential Disney accessory that has gotten a price increase this year is Face Masks. Disney World’s face mask policy has shifted over the past year, but masks are still required when indoors and on rides at the parks and resorts.

Now, last year we saw Disney increase the price for their standard mask designs from $6 to $9.99 and now there’s a newer face mask that costs a whopping $14.99.

The new face mask features a thicker fabric, a nose wire, and adjustable straps, so it certainly is “nicer” than the masks that Disney has been selling, but you will have to be willing to pay the extra price for the luxury.

But, all face masks haven’t received the price bump, so you can still find the standard masks in stores for $9.99.

Reusable Bags

And, the last item that got a bump in price is reusable bags. The prices of these have fluctuated throughout the years, but when the parks reopened originally, they were priced at $1 each, for any size — a pretty good deal!

But, now the bags are back to their 2019 pricing (TRIPLING in price in some cases) and cost $2 for a small, $2.50 for a medium, and $3 for a large.

So, there you have it — the biggest price increases in Disney World so far in 2021. We will continue to keep an eye out for any other changing prices, and in the meantime, you can check out other expenses that can blow your Disney World budget in our video below!
