Walt Disney World Dessert Party Price Increases Coming to Several Options


Previously I reported about the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties getting price increases February 1, 2020, but it seems the Magic Kingdom isn’t alone.

According to Theme Park Tourist some of the other dessert parties will experience a price hike in the near future including:

Frozen Ever After Dessert Party– Epcot

Arendelle Aqua has hit and Frozen 2 is on it’s way, so it just stands to reason that the Frozen themed dessert party would get more expensive. Got to get every penny!

This dessert party allows guests desserts, drinks, special views of the nighttime show in the park and then a ride on Frozen Ever After.

Currently the price for this party is $79 for adults (ages 10+) and $47 for children (ages 3-9.) But come December 1st the prices will go up to $99 for adult and $59 for child.  Got to get those prices up in time for the movie!

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party – Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Galaxy’s Edge is open and the new Rise of Skywalker movie will hit theaters in December time to raise the prices!

This party allows guests to have desserts, savory snack and drinks in The Launch Bay and then go to reserved seating to watch the projection shows “Wonderful World of Animation” and “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular.”

Hurry and go because the prices are going up on January 6, 2020! This one isn’t as bad as the Frozen increase. Currently it’s $79 for adult (ages 10+) and $45 for children (ages 3-9.) The increase will be $89 per adult and $53 per child.

Rivers of Light: We Are One Dessert Party – Disney’s Animal Kingdom

This is another one where you do the dessert party first and then you get a “special viewing area” to watch the Rivers of Light: We are One show.

Currently the price is $79 per adult (10+) and $47 per child (3-9.) Like the Magic Kingdom offerings, it will increase starting February 1, 2020 to $89 per adult and $53 per child.

 Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage – Seven Seas Lagoon

This one is a bit different in that it starts at Disney’s Contemporary Resort for the dessert, snack and beverage portion. Then you join in on a pirate themed boat ride to the Seven Seas Lagoon to watch the night-time fireworks.

Right now it costs $76.44 per adult (ages 10+) and $45.66 per child (ages 3-9) but starting on February 1, 2020 the cost will increase to $83.83 per adult and $49.87 per child.

I get that everyone is different and for some these dessert parties are worth the money. Personally, I don’t think they are (except for maybe the Pirates and Pals one because it’s unique.) For the cost of small desserts and drinks and “special seating” you could easily buy some treats in the parks and get there early to get a good spot. For most of these a family of four could see a cost increase of $30-$40.

It’s yet another example of cost increases that are hitting families visiting Walt Disney World. Luckily this one is an add on and won’t affect people just visiting the parks.
