Jozef Brandt: "wonder how bad the crowds are going to be"

Just to provide perspective, when Disney's Animal Kingdom opened their Pandora area based on Avatar, there was a wait for three to four hours, just to get into the land. There were additional waits to get into the gift shops.  And then, of course, there were the waits for the rides.

We are regular Disney World vacationers. We took a big vacation this past fall as we will likely skip next year. 

If you are thinking of going, and you hate crowds, go the week of January 1.  The place becomes a ghost town.

Disney World charged $3.50 for a day pass when it opened in 1971, so I bet Disneyland in 1960 would have set you back something between a buck or two.

"I wonder what we paid back in 1960?"

When the park opened in 1955, an adult ticket was $1, and 50 cents for a child ticket.  Then, each of the 35 rides had a separate fee. These cost 25 to 35 cents for adults and 10 to 25 cents for a child.  So, if you did everything back then, it was $8.70 for an adult, and $5.15 for a child.

Bringing out the handy inflation calculator, that adult ticket would go for $80.96 in 2017's money. 

Of course, the park is not the same today as it was then. Currently there are over 60 attractions. So, in 1955 money, that would have been $16 for an adult to do everything, or $148.89 in 2017 money.


Wow...I think I was just actually hit with what replaced my comic obsession.

The press kits for Galaxy's Edge are out.  It's really going to be something, between the price hikes and the extra crowds it will probably be a couple years before I see it in person.

Multiple sites asked the press agents about lines and were given vague answers, but it appears that for the main attractions the lines will be indoors. 

I found interesting that the stores will sell screen-accurate clothes, but Disney has a strong policy about adults being "in costume" in the park.  They usually don't allow people to dress up.  I wonder if Galaxy's Edge will be an exception. 

Also in one of the articles they talked about Disney World having a Star Wars themed hotel that will have the windows replaced by screens that show space "outside"

Disney has previously announced that costuming would be allowed in Galaxy's Edge. The Star Wars hotel is going to have its own entrance directly into that part of the park.

They haven't said if costumes would be allowed past Galaxy's Edge.

IO9/Gizmodo Walkthrough of Galaxy's Edge

I may pay a visit some day, but again, being set in the Abrams timeline is not exactly giving me that thrill to experience it right away...

I cannot believe that they really think people will only spend 4 hours in the area.

I could spend 4 hours simply staring at a full size Millennium Falcon
