Disney is expensive. No one has ever claimed otherwise, it doesn’t matter if your Disney vacation is by land, sea, or even air, you’re going to pay a premium for the Disney name. Pricing at the domestic theme parks have outpaced inflation for years and recently Disney relaunched their ultra-expensive $115k trip to Disney Parks around the world. Paying for a Disney vacation isn’t not for the faint of heart. Last year Disney went on a tear raising prices in its theme parks in a move that pushed many to their breaking point. However, Disney’s latest pice hike takes place at Sea!

Disney Cruise Line has a devoted following which is unsurprising because Disney is among the best and most things they do including cruising. That isn’t just bias taking, they’ve proven it time and time again with various accolades. People who cruise Disney say they are unlikely to ever sail on another cruise line because of the above and beyond service, impeccable (and spacious) ships, and generous offerings.

Another perk? Almost everything is included in your Disney cruise. Disney offers rotational dining, which is an industry first. Rather than only experiencing one dining room on each night of your cruise, you’ll be rotate between three different restaurants during your adventure. This is already covered in the price of your cruise! Unlike other cruise lines, soda and juice is included as well.

One thing not included, though, is specialty dining. These restaurants are for guests age 18 and up and offer an upscale atmosphere. Restaurants like Remy and Palo, serve delicious five-star quality food in a quiet and romantic setting. These premium restaurants come at a premium price tag. Now, they’ll cost you even more. Recently, Disney quietly increased the price. Bunch or dinner at Northern Italian eatery Palo (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder) and Palo Steakhouse on Disney Wish will now pay $50 per person, up from $45.

Meanwhile Remy, which serves French cuisine (Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy) now costs $80 per person for brunch, up from $75, and $135 per guest for dinner, an increase from $125. The dessert option also increased by $5 to a staggering $65 for dessert.

At French-inspired Enchanté (Disney Wish), the lines newest specialty option, brunch also now costs $80 per person (formerly $75) and its dessert offering runs $65 per guest, up from $60. The multi-course Passion dinner will now be $135, up from $125 and Collection dinner option will now cost $205, up from $125 and $195.

These increases apply to reservations made on or after Thursday July 13, 2023. Reservations made prior to that will be charged the old rates. The increases go into effect immediately. Keep in mind, these dining options are just that, options. Guests unsatisfied with the price hike can still enjoy award-winning rotational dining (which is exceptional) included in your cruise fare.
