    I can honestly say, I never even knew such a place existed. Nice work Werner!

        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

          I remember those fiberglass rounded chairs. Have to love inflation.What a deal for a pizza!

                Man oh man are we getting ripped off now-a-days. Those prices are crazy! Im willing to bet that the food was pretty darn good too.

                    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.

                          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.

                              I love seeing the things that you do not hear about all the time. Thanks for showing me something new.
