First-ever Disneyland ticket
Purchased by arrangement in 1955 by Walt Disney's brother Roy Disney. I was wondering what today's cost is, and found this comment in the Reddit thread: "In 1955 minimum wage in California was .75 cents. A ticket cost an hour
and fifteen minutes of hourly pay. Today, California’s minimum wage is
$12.00 and ticket admission to just the original Disneyland Park is
$149.00. That takes just over eleven and a half hours of work to pay for
one ticket admission."
