    What's a Yacht Bar? And what's it doing in Yesterland? Find out here!

    Link to The Yacht Bar.

    Please discuss it here.

    (There will be a banner for this new Yesterland entry on MiceAge.com on Monday, March 26. People who read this MiceChat board will know about it a few days sooner.)

    I'm just not sure that I can feed a family of 5 on that kind of outrageous price. C'mon $5, now way :P

    A whole meal for a $1.05? That was then...

    ...this is now (well, ok, this was aout 5 years ago)...
    The closest deal to that I've seen is in Reno where you can get a Hot Dog and beer for about $2.50!

    What I would find REALLY interesting is to know how many ounces a Small and Large drink were back then. Nowadays, a Large is a gut-busting half liter. Those cups in the picture look pretty tiny. My guess is the drinks were 8 oz and 12 oz.

    As for the fiberglass chairs with built-in table, I bet at least 30% of Disneyland's current adult customer base couldn't squeeze into them.

    My favorite thing about all the Yesterland pictures is seeing how adults and kids alike dressed up for a day at Disneyland, as if they were going to church. Yes, they probably sweated a bucket in July, but it's charming in a way that will never happen again in our lifetime. Kinda sad.

    I'm curious how those prices translate into today's prices given inflation, I mean those prices seem very cheap at the same time I know that salaries and general expenses were much less back in that day.

    But very interesting find, something I had never heard of before (Althought it predates me a bit as I wasn't born till 68), and it was neat to hear some of the prices on concessions at that time.

    According to on-line inflation calculators, $1 in '57 (first year of operation) would buy $7.17 today. $1 in '66 (last year of operation) would buy $6.18 today.

    So - assuming the prices were from '57, translated to today:
    Chili Dog or Shake - $2.87
    Fries or Large Coke - $1.79
    Milk or Small Coke - $1.07
    Sub - $5.37
    Shake - $2.87
    Dole Whip - $Priceless

    I couldn't resist throwing in some more numbers:

    In '66, an E-ticket cost 60 cents. That would be $3.71 today. Would you spend $3.71 to go on any of today's E-rides? Compared to the ride price of the state-fair rides, that may be a bargain.

    A $5 "Deluxe" ticket book (which included admission) would cost $30.88 today.

    By 1984, ride tickets were history, and a full day unlimited admission was $27.50. That would be $53.67 today - quite a bit less than reality.
