Disneyland Paris has seen another price increase when it comes to the cost of one of its offerings. 

Price increases are the bane of any Disney fan’s time at the parks. It’s no secret that over the years, the cost of enjoying a Disney Park vacation (be that at Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, or any other theme park) has shot up and increased at consistent intervals.

On one hand, this is perfectly understandable. The cost of commodities has gone up; think about the state of the current economy practically all over the world. It seems almost inevitable, and even if that weren’t true, the pandemic also made many experiences more expensive for guests and fans.

Disney was not exempt from these changes.

All Disney fans are well aware of how much more expensive it is to go to a Disney Park in 2024 than it was even a few years ago. The Walt Disney World Resort, for example, has seen extensively documented price rises that have resulted in many families being priced out of being able to afford a Disney World vacation.

In fact, the cost of going to Disney World is beginning to hit $10,000, and fans are even going into debt to make their Disney dreams come true.

Today, we have another price rise to report, though this one is certainly not as dramatic as many previous Disney World stories.

DLP Report has reported that the price of certain foods has gone up at Disneyland Paris.

The account took to X, formerly Twitter, to report, “In other food price increase news, the iconic Market House Deli croque has gone from €8,50 to €10 and the Mickey shaped sandwiches from €9,50 to €10,50.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the specific food offerings, here they are below:

Of course, fans were incredibly unimpressed with this announcement. One commented, “All aboard the Disney greed train. Won’t be long before they start charging to use the toilets.” 

Another wrote in French, “10 balles le croque monsieur,” expressing shock that the croque was now 10 euros. 

Yet another fan expressed their disappointment. They wrote in French, “Encore des trucs qu’on pourra pas se payer à trop vouloir d’argent ils vont se mettre une balle dans le pied c’est même pas exceptionnel . Purée les riches étrangers vont attendait quoi pour réagir,” which when translated, reads, “More things that we won’t be able to afford because we want money too much, they’ll put a bullet in their foot, it’s not even exceptional. Damn, what are the rich foreigners waiting for to react?”

One fan was so fed up with the prices that they even went so far as to say, It’s insane! 10€ for a dry AF sandwich with little content. Just go to Starbucks before heading in.” 

This is not the first time fans have been completely disillusioned with Disney prices. In fact, in the past, former fans have even walked away from Disney, stating, “I’m done.”

While these fans don’t yet seem to be at that level, the rising prices are certainly giving many cause for concern.
