Editor’s Note: Epic Economist does a good job finding and analyzing economic trends, especially as they tie to individual businesses or industries.

Many restaurants have already been quietly introducing menu price changes in the past few months, especially during the summer. On the company’s official website, the exact increases are not being disclosed to the public. However, data compiled by Disney Food Blog exposed price jumps of up to 40% in the past couple of months.
Even though customers already seem alarmed by spiking prices at Disney theme parks, CEO Bob Iger says it will help “boost revenue and limit overcrowding.” In fact, amid falling sales and subscriber losses, the company’s streaming service Disney+ will get almost 30% more expensive starting on October 12.
