Caution, if you are faint of heart, and seeing what a vacation to Disney World used to cost will bring you pain, look no further!
These items were sent to me by my wife's Aunt Sandy, Uncle Roger, and cousin Jill from their trip to Walt Disney World in July of 1982, just a couple of months prior to EPCOT Center's opening.
From their park tickets, we can see what days they visited, June 30th and July 2nd, 1982.
A 2 day pass for kids 3-9 as of today is $172.
Their tickets were $21, which adjusts to just under $51 in 2013!
Adjusted for inflation, $1 is under $3 today. Parking at the time I originally wrote this article in 2012 was $14.
There is obviously more to do at a Disney Park today than 31 years ago. And operating costs I'm sure have increased dramatically. But what is the point when families stop going to the Parks because they simply can't afford it anymore?
