Disneyland Paris to cost more for Brits following overnight price hike for food, drinks and merchandise
HOLIDAYMAKERS to Disneyland Paris aren’t strangers to forking out for their food and drink, but guests staying at the resort woke to discover some very hefty price hikes.
According to the DLP Report, a Twitter Account dedicated to providing Disneyland Paris updates, the cost of food and drink prices rose across the park overnight.
Dining at table service restaurants increased by 7 per cent to 12 per cent.
For example, at the popular character dining spot, Auberge de Cendrillon, prices rose by €16 (£13) per person with a meal setting back diners €95 (£82) a head.
Buffet prices were also hit with the Plaza Gardens, a restaurant decorated like a Victorian dining parlour, increasing meals by €7 (£6) per person from €38 (£32) to €45 (£38).
While other buffet restaurants like Downtown Cape Cod will cost a diner an extra €3 (£2.59) from €42 (£36) to €45 (£38).
The cheapest buffet option at La Cantina and Crockett now costs €35 (£30) – an increase of €1 (£0.86).
It’s believed that customers who’ve already purchased a meal plan will receive their vouchers as planned for the price they paid.
But guests can expect meal plans to increase by at least €1 (£0.86) from April 2023 with full board plans climbing by €11 (£9.51) per person per night.
Fizzy drink prices rose too from €3.80 (£3.29) to €4 (£3.46).
One Twitter one visitor said: “The no warning to people with reservations is to note, it was quite a surprise for many when showing up at Walt’s today.”
Another person wrote: “Guess I’m cancelling some reservations for my trip in 2 weeks.”
From March 2023, Disneyland Paris Guests wishing to use the Disney Express system, a service that transfers luggage directly to the hotel, will be charged an extra $3.
Meanwhile the price of souvenirs at other Disneyland parks has also increased with kids’ jumpers costing parents an extra $5 (£4.29) at $54.99 (£46.14).
The popular Loungefly Mini Backpacks have also gone up by $10 (£8.39) to a whopping $85 (£71.32).
The price hikes in food and drink comes just after Disney World upped its prices for the first time in three years, with tickets increasing by $3 (£2.50) to $15 (£12) per guest per day.
