1. How Much Did Disneyland Cost Back Then?
Back when it opened in 1955, a ticket to the theme park cost a mere one dollar for adults and 50 cents for children. However, beyond the entry fee, each of the 35 rides had a fee. Most of the attractions cost about 25 to 35 cents for adults and 10 to 25 cents for kids, but it was still an affordable thrill. Even if you went on every ride or attraction, you’d still pay less than 10 bucks for the day.
