Adjusting to Theme Park price tilt

So, am on the road in the US of A.

It's an expensive place, for mere mortals. Minimum wage in my county is $1 an hr, in Washington it's currently $10, probably going to $15 .. Now, things here are expensive .. Coffee at Starbucks is $4, which is 3 times the price, I would expect to pay .. Nightly rates at basic 3 star hotels, are $100+ ..

Anyway, was getting past all of it, when we hit the theme parks.

4 adults (anything over 11 is an adult), for 2 days at Universal .. $800. The on-site hotel .. $300 a night, plus $22 parking, per day, (don't even think about free breakfast).

U walk in .. Someone takes you pic .. $30. Bottle of water, $2, sometimes $3. 

Fast pass tickets, an extra $200 .. Lines for fast pass, still for some rides, 15 mins. Harry Potter world well done .. But they are taking the piss. $40 for a fucking wand !! It's a little bit of plastic for fucks sake !!

The guy outside gringots has the right idea ..He got the lot.
