      I vote Monorail. It's certainly a neat experience (especially if you get a ride at the very front of it), but I wouldn't consider it an E-ticket experience.

        For those who remember the ticket books for the 1960's, the monorail was a D ticket.

          Wow...the monorail is running away with it!

          Maybe I should have said "except the monorail, which attraction is least deserving of an E ticket designation"!

            i voted it's a small world. it loses my attention so fast and i think the lack of a line speaks for itself.

            "oh, i just love happy endings!"

              From what I can tell, the Monorail required an E ticket the entire time tickets were collected for it (1959-1980), while the Disneyland Railroad required a D ticket from 1956-1958, then an E ticket from 1959-1966 then back to the D from 1967 to 1980.

              My personal opinion would be that all the attractions in this poll were, at the time they were introduced, worthy of an E ticket. My least favorite on the list was Country Bear Jamboree, but that's because I was just a kid and not into country music.

                Exactly. Judging the worth of half century old Disneyland E tickets from the perspective of the present is an exercise in temporal chauvinism. That's like asking Disneyland fans in 1959 to judge the worth of amusement park tickets from 1906.
                "Disneyland is often called a magic kingdom because
                it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
                together with every variety of recreation and fun,
                designed to appeal to everyone."

                - Walt Disney

                "Disneyland is all about turning movies into rides."
                - Michael Eisner

                "It's very symbiotic."

                  It's just supposed to be a convival query.

                    We're tossing around fancy phrases like some imperious predatory dowager.
