LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – One woman figured out a way to get into Walt Disney World without mortgaging her home to afford park tickets.

It was as simple as using a pass from 1994.

According to Upworthy, Chelsea Herline used the first three days of a four-day pass while she was visiting the park with her family when she was 4-years-old.

Unfortunately, Herline, now 26, got sick during the vacation and was unable to use the final day of the pass.

So when Herline recently returned to the Orlando area, she decided to see what would happen if she tried to use the pass 22 years later.

It worked.


"I just went up to the window. I wasn't expecting to spend the day there; I didn't bring anything (or anyone) with me," Herline told Upworthy.

"They were pretty surprised. The girl working there was younger than me and said, 'Wow, I've never seen one this old before!' She called her manager over and they were super nice about it."

The price of the four-day pass in 1994 was $107; almost the exact same price it now costs adults to spend one day in the Magic Kingdom.
