  1. The White Lotus characters keep eating in the same restaurant because it’s efficient, cost-effective, fast TV production.

  2. @ Gary — Why again do people like Disney World? I find it miserable, like flying in economy.

  3. I didn’t see White Lotus, but I imagine the characters must blog at One Mile at a Time or Live and Let’s Fly. Then it would seem normal to fly all over the world and never leave your chain hotel bubble.

  4. Gary, re: Disney. When D-Land opened up it the ticket was admission only. Rides were sold separately on a ticket basis. There were different types of rides: A – E with the E-ticket being most expensive. The teacups were an A-ticket, Space Mountain and Matterhorn were E-ticket.

    Disney did away with ride tickets in the 80s (?). Now the price is all-inclusive.

    So, comparing admission ticket from day 1 to today is misleading.

    Great headline, but misleading.

  5. B tickets could be used at the Frontierland Shootin’ Gallery in WDW. Every other use was meh by comparison.
