Next time we complain of disney food prices


#1

My DD just came from a phillies game. $4.25 for a bottle of water. And they ran out, all they had left was beer. I sent her with tons of water, must have saved her 25 - 30 bucks ( there was 6 of them).


#2

Yes, when I went to the Barbara Streisand concert, they charged either $6 or $7 for a small bottle of water. (I was so shell shocked, I can’t remember which amount was correct…it was warm also!)

I also remember staying at Wisconsin Dells with their greasy, nasty food being so much more than Disney. Whenever someone goes on a rant about Disney prices I always bring that up as a comparison or ask what they paid at Six Flags the last time they were there. Usually stops them in their tracks.

Some things are too expensive at WDW but I would rather pay for quality than some of the junk at other theme parks…we actually think that some things aren’t so bad—especially compared with prices in the DC area. I had to pay .93 for an orange today…and that was a sale…


#4

HA! My parents went to the Phillies game on Thursday and said the same thing~!


#5

That’s how much it costs at Clemson games!! I think it’s morally wrong to charge that much for water at a hot outdoors game.

Disney’s water and soft drink prices are actually very reasonable in comparison to sporting events and Carowinds (also $4 a bottle).


#6

Philly prices are ridiculous lol I’m going to the nkotb concert in two weeks at the Wachovia center and am terrified of beer prices lol


#7

Dana: I was at the game Thursday also. Did your parents see me?

Jo-Jo: “All they had left was beer”? NIRVANA!

I knew that line would get you to comment. But no matter how important beer is to some people, it is still frowned upon for 3 yr olds.

Nonsense, in Oklahoma it is considered a nutritional beverage, of course that is 3.2 beer which barely qualifies as anything other then flavored water.

( Oklahoma folks, please know I am just kidding, I love your state! )

But it makes nap time so much easier!


#11

Why didn’t you mention that a few days ago when we had the grandkids all week. :laugh:

The 8 yrs. we could say “go to your room and read for an hour”. The 3 yr old would last about 30 secs before we’d hear “is it time to come out yet???”.

I work concessions at a ball park as a fundraiser for a charity. The food is marginal at best, everything way overpriced and the paid concession staff sucks - they are ALWAYS running out of stuff. And when we can’t sell product we aren’t making money. Same thing for beer - they don’t flush the lines so we end up pouring foam all darn night and at $8.50 people don’t want a cup of foam.

We get food at 1/2 price but it’s still no bargin. And we have to pay to park like everybody else.


#13

It is absolutely true that concessions at places where there is a “captive” adience --arenas, amusement/theme parks, carnivals, etc. --are elevated to various degrees. I have found that WDW is better than most, both for price and overall value. I live in a suburb outside NYC, and without doubt the prices at Yankee Stadium, Citifield and MetLife Stadium make WDW look like outlet prices( might be a small exaggeration, but it feels true)!


#14

I would just like to say “Beer is your friend.”


#15

My solution, the minor leagues. I’m 20 minutes away from the Iron Pigs (Phillies AAA) and about an hour to the Reading Phillies (AA). Go with $20, get a program, a light snack, a couple of soft drinks, and head home with change from the $20.


#16

That’s nice. We’ve got the Gwinnett Braves (Braves AAA) just down the road, and those seats strike me as overly expensive.
