Fifty years ago today, the world got a little smaller when the Magic Kingdom first opened at Disney World in Florida. Here are three interesting stats:
- Admission in 1971 was $3.50 for adults and $1 for children. It’s $109 now.
- The FAA has designated Disney World a “no-fly zone,” a level of security typically afforded to places like the White House and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
- Disney’s bus fleet is the third largest fleet of any Florida transportation system.
