    Smile Hmmmm......

    This is more of a thought than a good topic, but I have been reading Walt's biography and noticed that when he was starting out in hollywood with the studio he would not be able to afford to buy a one day park hopper ticket to Disneyland. I know not that interesting but I had to get it out of my meat noodle.

    Did you account for inflation? Because that is a significant part of the cost increase.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    According to online inflation calculators, the $66 Disneyland-only ticket would have cost around $5.30 back in the mid-20s.

    Well I didn't have much of a specific way of thinking of this, just that a head of a late 1920's animation studio could not go to his own creation now a days if we was magically time travelled here. So yeah I guess it's a matter of inflation, but you know however anyone wants to take it.

    I bet some of the owners of the land would have let him sit for a while in the orange groves for free.
