Magic Kingdom Experience Gets a Price Increase

It’s no secret that a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is expensive. While working on the budget, dining experiences are always essential to pay attention to. Well, now, one of the most coveted dining experiences at Magic Kingdom Park has received a price hike.

We’ve recently seen ticket price increases at Walt Disney World. Not only is it now more expensive to visit Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but several of the former freebie perks are now up-charged.

Want to skip the wait on select attractions? The complimentary FastPass+ system is gone with Disney Genie+ now charging Guests $15 per person, per day… and that doesn’t count the additional fee for individual Lightning Lane attractions.

On top of Genie+, Guests are also now paying for former free perks such as MagicBands and transportation to and from the Orlando International Airport with Disney’s Magical Express gone.

While Guests struggle with the thought of paying extras for a former free experience, we are seeing food costs increase at select locations, with Cinderella’s Royal Table being one restaurant to see a price increase.

Breakfast Cinderella’s Royal Table was recently priced at $27 for children and $42 for adults. Lunch and dinner were $37 for children and $62 for adults. Now, Disney has bumped the price, with breakfast being $29 per child and $45 per adult. Lunch and dinner are $39 for children and $67 for adults.

While the Disney Dining increase may not seem like much, the slow climb in pricing can quickly impact large families visiting the Parks. The other issue is that nothing is changing at Cinderella’s Royal Table. The restaurant has still paused its character dining experience, but a Disney Princess or two have been known to drop by and wave from afar.

This could be a sign Disney is planning on returning to its normal meet and greet dining experience at Cinderella’s Royal Table, or it could just be a bump because of food costs.

If you’ve never dined at Cinderella’s Royal Table, we do recommend everyone experience it at least once to be able to say you’ve dined inside the theme park’s iconic Cinderella Castle. Disney describes the experience as “A Feast Fit for Royalty”:

Breakfast: Kick off your day in majestic style, complete with bubbly cocktails, flaky pastries and avocado toast. Craving something heartier? Try the Caramel Apple-Stuffed French Toast or Beef Tenderloin and Egg. Or sink your teeth into a Traditional Breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and potatoes. Also available are nonalcoholic drinks like orange juice, lemonade, Twinings of London tea and freshly brewed Joffrey’s coffee.

Lunch and Dinner: Prepare yourself for an enchanted lunch or dinner as Cinderella’s Royal Chef begins your feast with assorted cured meats and cheeses. Soon after, it’s on to an unforgettable main course with choices for adults ranging from roasted chicken breast and tenderloin of beef to chef’s fish of the day.

For your wee ones, favorite options like beef tenderloin, chicken nuggets or macaroni and cheese. And no matter the path your meal takes, be sure to polish off your dining experience with a scrumptious dessert like the coffee pots de creme or the signature The Clock Strikes Twelve—dark chocolate mousse with a dark chocolate ganache served with a raspberry coulis.
