What is the most expensive thing at Disney World? If you assumed it was something like dining at Be Our Guest or buying a $250 custom lightsaber at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, think again.

The Most Expensive Meal at Disney World

First stop, food. Of course, Disney offers some amazing meals at restaurants like Be Our Guest and Space 220. For most families, those would be a splurge at $67 per person and $79 per person respectively.

But if you want the crème de la crème of dining experiences, the check is about to get a lot steeper.

EPCOT has two of the most luxurious meals at Disney World. For a whopping $195 per person, Monseiur Paul features a Prix Fixe menu that offers the gastronomic meal, which has become a tradition in French cuisine. According to Disney:

“The meal entails rites which include the search for good seasonal and local products, references to a codified repertoire of recipes, culinary skills, the setting of a beautiful table, the succession of courses and the pairing of dishes with wine.”

This elegant five course menu includes highlights such as seared scallops served with maple pumpkin velouté, center cut beef tenderloin served with porcini fricassee, mashed potatoes mousseline, and Bordelaise sauce, as well as a cheese course.

Just a short walk away in the Japan Pavilion is Takumi Tei, which features an Omakase menu for $250 per person. Delivering an authentic Japanese dining experience, dishes include wagyu steak, lobster tempura, and sashimi.

The Chef's Table - Victoria & Albert's - Walt Disney World

But the crowning jewel of Disney dining? None other than Victoria & Albert’s, which is widely considered to be the best restaurant at Disney World. Enjoying the regular tasting menu in the dining room starts at $295 per person. But for the most elite experience, you can dine at their Chef’s Table, which is $425. If you wish to add the $200 wine pairing, you’re looking at $625 per person.

“Inspired by the season, each unique menu features ingredients culled fresh daily from the world market. Throughout the approximately 3-hour experience, the chef offers up superb morsels and tasting samples, tailoring this fantastic feast to your party’s dietary preferences.”

Looking at the realm of fancy drinks, you can spend a lot more money on your Disney dining. At Disney Springs, Wine Bar George features several $3500 bottles of wine. If you’re curious to just have a taste of a wine that expensive, a 1 oz pour costs $150. Wine Bar George also offers a tasting called the “First Growth Experience,” which includes a flight of five pours, the 2 oz version setting you back a cool $1300.

As a side note, don’t let those high price tags scare you away from trying Wine Bar George. They also offer extremely reasonable food and drinks, and it’s one of my favorite places to dine at Disney Springs.

Club 33 at Disney World

However, the most expensive meal at Disney World would be to eat at one of the Club 33 restaurants or lounges as a member.

In case you don’t know, Club 33 is a super exclusive club centered around the Disney Parks. It’s more commonly associated with Disneyland, but Disney World has its own Club 33. There are four Club 33 locations at Disney World, one in each park:

  • Magic Kingdom – Captain’s Quarters – Adventureland
  • EPCOT – Constellation Club – America
  • Hollywood Studios – Spotlight Lounge – Brown Derby
  • Animal Kingdom – Harambe House – Between Africa/Pandora

While the food and beverage at these locations are reasonable for a fancy Disney meal, the real cost comes with the price of membership. Joining Club 33 costs $33,000, and then has a $15,000 annual fee.

But you can still go to these locations as a guest of a member.

The Most Expensive Merchandise at Disney World

$25000 R2D2 inside Droid Depot at Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

Let’s talk shopping. Disney World has a lot of easy ways to spend money on merchandise. From the $250 lightsaber at Savi’s to the $400 Disney Castle Lego set, you can drop a lot of money at Disney.

But want to drop a ridiculous amount of money? How about a life-sized R2-D2 at the Droid Depot for $25,000? That price doesn’t include shipping, which is another $800.

But Artoo doesn’t touch the bejeweled crown of the Arribas Brothers. They offer a wide variety of glass and crystal keepsakes that you can find at their store at Disney Springs or at Crystal Arts in Magic Kingdom. They range from the reasonable to the most expensive souvenirs at Disney World.

Spaceship Earth Crystal - Arribas Collection

Found at the Germany Pavilion in EPCOT, this crystal recreation of Spaceship Earth costs $79,000.

If Disney Princesses are more your thing, you can buy Cinderella Castle at Crystal Arts for $49,500. And for WDW’s 50th Anniversary, they debuted a grander version that costs a jaw-dropping quarter of a million dollars.

Yes, a Disney World souvenir that most people would need a mortgage for.

The Most Expensive Experiences at Disney World

Most young people rather spend their money on experiences than things these days. So what are the most expensive things you can do at Disney World?

In the splurges for mere mortals realm, Disney World offers several special ticked events, like the After Hours events and holiday parties like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, costing $150-$200 per person.

One of the most unique experiences at Disney World is to take a Fireworks Cruise to watch Magic Kingdom or EPCOT’s fireworks from the water. Cruises start at $399.

Speaking of being out on the water, you can actually rent a luxury yacht at Disney World. The Grand 1 embarks from the Grand Floridian, and costs $480 per hour during the day and $799 per evening. Private dining can be added for an additional fee, and the yacht fits up to 18 guests.

Or 17 if you want to add butler service, which costs even more.

Disney Fairy Tale Weddings at Magic Kingdom

One of the most expensive experiences at Disney World is tying the knot. Weddings at Disney World start at $15,000, but depending on your venue things can get much more expensive. For example, getting married at Pandora or Tower of Terror costs between $20,000 – $25,000.

But the most expensive weddings at Disney World take place at Magic Kingdom, and cost $30,000 – $100,000 as the event minimum. Fairy tale weddings come with a steep price tag.

Disney Private VIP Tour - Disney World

What if your dream isn’t a wedding, but to skip all the lines at the parks? You should check out the Disney Private VIP Tour. You’ll be picked up from your hotel, brought into the parks, and showed around by a VIP Tour Guide. During this tour, you and up to 9 other guests can skip the line at any ride you want.

Prices range from $450-$900 per hour depending on the time of year you go, and there’s a minimum of 7 hours. So a VIP Tour at Disney World starts at $3150-$6300. One caveat: theme park admission is not included in that price.

Disney Private Jet Adventure WebsiteBut for the ultimate Disney Experience, you can take a vacation of a lifetime on the Disney Parks Around the World Private Jet Adventure. Offered by Adventures by Disney, this trip spans 24 days, 6 countries, 69 meals, and 31 different stops, including all 12 Disney theme parks around the world. It starts at a mere $114,995 per person.

The Most Expensive Places to Stay at Disney World

The Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Want a hotel that matches the lavish items we’ve covered so far?

Disney World hotels vary price based on their time of year, with the busiest weeks like Christmas having the most expensive rooms.

At the Grand Floridian, a three bedroom villa costs almost $6,000 per night during that week.

However, the Polynesian Village Resort has the most expensive accommodations of a Disney Resort, with their bungalows going for $6146 per night that week.

Disney Vacation Club Price Table

Now, I can’t talk about the most expensive ways to stay at Disney World without mentioning DVC, which is the Disney Vacation Club. It’s Disney’s version of a timeshare. You buy points that you can use at Disney resorts. It gives you more flexibility than a typical timeshare, because you can use your points at any DVC location.

To join, you need to purchase “real estate interest” at a home resort. Joining costs anywhere from $22,000 all the way up to $65,000, depending on your home resort, and how many points you’ll need. Plus then there’s an annual membership fee.

Is it a good deal? That’s a question for a different article.

But is expensive? Oh Yeah.

Want the ultimate in luxury? The Four Seasons has the Royal Suite for $17,000 per night. According to Orlando Sentinel, “the suite comes with 8 hours of butler service and has an open living and dining room that looks out to a large private balcony, with sweeping views of Disney World and Magic Kingdom.”

The Four Seasons is located inside Golden Oak, which is a gated community just four miles away from Magic Kingdom.

Which brings us to the most expensive thing money can buy at Disney World: a home at Golden Oak.

Home at Golden Oak - The Most Expensive Things at Disney World
Golden Oak

As of the time of this writing, there are three homes available for purchase at Golden Oak. But the dream of living inside of Disney World will cost you. These homes run from $9.65 million – $19 million, making them easily the most expensive thing you can buy at WDW.

We want to hear from you!

Let me know in the comments below: If you could buy only one of these things, which one of the most expensive things you can buy at Disney World would you choose?
