Ticket Prices Skyrocket!
This first image is from a semi-scratched faded batch of images from May 1960. Despite that, it's still a great image of the entrance area to the park. Not only can see you the turnstiles, but you can plainly see the admission prices for the park:
Flash forward 8 years later to January 1968, and just look at how the prices have SKYROCKETED! Can you believe a personal guided tour through Disneyland has gone up $2.50? Who in their right mind would pay a total of $6.50 for a guided tour of Disneyland. Just shocking. Absolutely shocking.
I'll just bet this group of rabble-rousers were protesting the prices and getting ready to take this poor Tour Guide as a hostage!
