That's a great write up, thanks for the memories !! Can you imagine a buffet breakfast at the top of the Contemporary for $3.75 . Those were the days....
Take a trip back in time to 1979! Check out the latest entry on my blog--
Sweet! I've always wondured how much A,B,C,D and E tickets cost.
I'm only happy in Disney World
I am still a proud pod person
Keep on babbeling
Wow I remember having one of those 3 day passes safety pinned to my shirt, after the date was stamped at the turnstyle.
My first trip to the Magic Kingdom was one week after it opened. So many fond memories. My girlfriend and I went for one week in 1978/1979 on a special package. We stayed at the Contemporary Resort and we issued a credit card with our names on it. It allowed us 3 meals a day (as long as there was a waitress--so no going to someplace like Harbor House unless you wanted to pay), unlimited use of water craft (we rented the speed boats almost every day and even took waterski lessons), unlimited entrance to the Magic Kingdom (there was no other part at the time but perhaps River Country). All this for $500.00 per person for a week! Gosh, I even remember staying at the Poly for $80/night. I still have A, B, C, D, and E tickets left over that I saved (you paid either child, junior, or adult--remember everyone?). Sorry to go on, just feels good to go down memory lane.
