Thousands of Disney World Prices Increased Recently — Here Are 3 That Will Impact You the MOST

Disney World might be the Most Magical Place on Earth, but it’s certainly not known for being the Cheapest Place on Earth.

Disney World

Thousands of prices recently increased throughout the parks, hotels, and more, and chances are it’s going to change your next trip. Out of all the price increases, though, these will probably be the ones that impact you the most.

Parking Fees

You might want to start relying on the free transportation in Disney World, because parking fees have officially gone up for the theme parks. Most parking tiers went up by $5 per day, and you can check that pricing out below.

Here’s a breakdown of the changes:

  • Standard parking: car or motorcycle – $30 per day (previously $25)
  • Preferred parking: car or motorcycle – $45, $50 or $55 per day — seasonal pricing (previously $45-$50)
  • Oversized Vehicle Parking: Shuttle, Limo, Camper Trailer, RV, Bus, or Tractor Trailer – $35 per day (previously $30)

Non-Disney hotel guests or those staying off Disney property are charged to park a vehicle at the theme parks. But, people staying at a Disney World hotel can park free of charge at their resort and the theme parks, and so can Annual Passholders.

So, it might be worth it for you to consider staying on property and taking advantage of Disney World transportation. Of course, there is the added cost that comes with staying at a Disney World hotel, but there are also so many other perks you can take advantage of as well.

We have terrible news — pricing has gone up at a ton of restaurants all around the parks, hotels, and even Disney Springs. These increases aren’t huge (often just $1 or $2, if that) but when you add them all up they can really make a difference — especially if you’re traveling with a large group.

Prices went up at various hotel restaurants throughout Disney World, along with a few at Disney Springs. Not only that, but you’ll find yourself paying more for character dining and other table-service restaurants in the theme parks as well.

But, not all hope is lost, because there are still ways to save on dining in Disney World! You can modify meals to remove sides for a cheaper option, share larger entrees and sides with other people in your party, and you can even order from the kids menu at quick service restaurants.

Annual Passes

If you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder or are thinking about becoming one, you’ll need to budget even more for that cost now. Yep, you guessed it — annual pass prices went up too. Depending on the type of pass, the price went up by $30 to $50.
