        Wow, two posts with two completely different criteria. Ride age Vs. excitement level (if that isn't your criteria, DrFink, I apologize).

        I can't name specific rides, having not experienced most of them, but my criteria to rank them would be by the "ah!" factor of the experience and/or tech.

        E = Jaw-dropping and unique
        D = Impressive and unusual
        C = Well done and not commonplace
        B = Entertaining and with a distinct Disney difference, but not exceptionally inventive
        A = Nice, but other places offer something very similar

          Re: What do you consider an E-ticket,D-ticket,C-ticket B-ticket and A-ticket ride?

          A - The horse drawn carriages down Main St.
          B - Disneyland Railroad
          C - Dumbo
          D - Pirates of the Caribbean
          E - Space Mountain

            Awww... the Fantasyland dark rides are worth more than an A. Traditionally the A ticket was basically just the vehicles that go up and down Main Street and the carousel in FL. All the dark rides in FL were at least a C; I think Alice was eventually downgraded to the B ticket, even though I personally think that's the best of the FL dark rides. The others B.

            Matterhorn was always an E, but with the discomfort now it's no better than D. Big Thunder would be an E but it killed someone so it can never be more than D in my mind. The only true E-level ones, at this point, in my opinion, are Space Mountain, Star Tours, Indiana Jones, Pirates, Haunted Mansion and Splash Mountain.

            Ds now would be Jungle Cruise, the Disneyland Railroad, Small World, Monorail, Submarines, Big Thunder and Matterhorn. As would be the Main Street vehicles, treehouse, Mickey and Minnie's House, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Main Street Cinema. Bs would be all the dark rides, Mr. Lincoln, Princess meet and greet. All others C ticket.

              Just my opinion, though I am sure there will be those who disagree

              A - a ride that would be free to ride even if the park was a pay per ride kind of park. A ride that you are "entitled to" such as transportation. (tram, bus, Main Street Vehicles)

              B - a ride that is like a B movie, cheesy but enjoyable. A ride that preschoolers love and want to ride over and over again. (Casey Jr Circus Train, Winnie The Pooh Adventure)

              C - a family ride, a normal ride, a ride that you ride as a family and no one wants to sit out. Usually very popular rides (Alice In Wonderland, Peter Pan's Flight, Mad Tea Party, etc)

              D -a ride that is defines the essence of the park, that is a unique experience that you can't find anywhere else. That teenagers would enjoy but is not a thrill ride. (Soarin', Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean)

              E - a thrill ride, the kind of ride that will make you lose your lunch if you don't have a strong stomach. Roller coasters, twists, turns, thrills, loops, drop rides, etc. Rides inappropriate for people with heart problems. (California Screamin', Tower Of Terror, Matterhorn)

                My standards are a bit different for the top three or so levels.

                A - Omnibus, horse-drawn streetcar, Ladybug Boogie, Innoventions, Blue-Sky Cellar, Main Street Cinema, Explorer Canoes, Luigi's Flying Tires, Silly Symphony Swings

                B - Goofy's Sky School, Casey Jr., Dumbo, Storybook Land, Monsters Inc., Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through

                C - Peter Pan's Flight, Alice In Wonderland, Little Mermaid, Grizzly River Rapids, Tom Sawyer Island, Snow White's Scary Adventures, MuppetVision, Mark Twain riverboat

                D - California Screamin', Soarin', Jungle Cruise, Enchanted Tiki Room, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln

                E - Haunted Mansion, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Radiator Springs Racers, Space Mountain, Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, Indiana Jones Adventure

                Basically, the bottom two tiers are amusements/ride systems other parks have and can do just as well basically. C is a 'minor' Disney attraction but still one that is well themed and representative of Disney quality in terms of detail or story or tone. D is a 'classic' still, but not quite as original currently as the E group, but either historical and well-kept up, or new and exciting for many visitors. E are attractions that Disney does the best at compared (largely) to other theme parks, and not just dependent on 'thrill' factor. Haunted Mansion and Pirates are elaborate and lengthy dark rides that are the gold standard of that type of thing other parks try and reach/compete with even with being conceptualized and built 50 years ago or so, so I can't see them as 'just D tickets'. The E-ticket level lives and breathes on thematic design and detail, whether or not it's married to a thrill element (which also enhances or informs the selection as an E-ticket).

                      Ticket ratings sometimes changed during an attraction's lifespan. Rainbow Caverns Mine Train/Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland went like this: D-C-D-E-D-E-D. (At the time it opened D was the most expensive ticket. When E tickets were introduced in 1959, the Mine Train was bumped down to the C ticket. When it reopened in 1960 it reopened as a D ticket, but in 1961 it was moved to the E ticket due to its popularity. Then in 1964 bumped up to E again, then in 1971 back down to D.)

                        Just an observation: if California Screamin' is a D- or E-ticket ride, then I guess Magic Mountain has Disneyland beat. :blink: Suffice to say that I for one disagree with ranking attractions according to sheer thrill level.

                            Re: What do you consider an E-ticket,D-ticket,C-ticket B-ticket and A-ticket ride?

                            Time to break out my nerdy classification system:

                            A Ticket: Either a low theme, low excitement, low demand, or low thrill ride. Would include spinners such as Dumbo, the Main Street Vehicles, and things such as Innoventions.

                            B Ticket: Decent theme, decent excitement, low demand, low thrill. Such as Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, the Tiki Room, and Pooh.

                            C Ticket: Decent theme, decent excitement, high demand, low thrill. Such as the classic Fantasyland dark rides, and later dark rides such as Little Mermaid. Also includes high end transport such as the Disneyland Railroad or the Monorail.

                            D Ticket: Definition A: High Theme, High Excitement, High Demand, low thrill. Such as the Submarines.
                            Defintion B: Low Theme, High Excitement, High Demand, High Thrill. Such as California Screamin'.

                            E Ticket: High Theme, High Excitement, High Demand, (Thrill May Vary), Disney's Best. This would include for me:
                            Star Tours
                            Haunted Mansion
                            Radiator Springs Racers
                            Tower of Terror
                            Grizzly River Run (when the weather is warm)
                            Splash Mountain
                            The Matterhorn
                            Big Thunder Mountain
                            Indianna Jones
                            Space Mountain

                            Basically put: If Disneyland is visited for only a short time once every two years, the E-ticket is a ride the visitor must see, and their Disney vacation would not be complete without it!

                              Re: What do you consider an E-ticket,D-ticket,C-ticket B-ticket and A-ticket ride?

                              I'd like to play devil's advocate, and suggest that the ticket level should be based on how popular the ride/attraction is, in other words, how long the lines are. So not how old the ride is, or the quality of the theming throughout the ride/attraction, or the level of thrill of the ride, but how popular the attraction is with people who go to the parks.

                              So most of the rides with Fast Passes would merit "E" designation:
                              - Space Mountain
                              - Indiana Jones
                              - Star Tours
                              - Splash Mountain
                              - Big Thunder
                              - Matterhorn Bobsleds
                              Based on popularity/length of wait, I would rate Peter Pan an "E".

                              Attractions that are popular but the lines aren't quite as long would be "D's":
                              - Pirates of the Caribbean
                              - Haunted Mansion
                              - Finding Nemo Submarines (but would probably have been an "E" for 3-4 years after it opened)
                              - Jungle Cruise
                              - Dumbo
                              - Alice in Wonderland
                              - Storybook Land Canal Boats
                              - Autopia
                              - Roger Rabbit
                              - kids' roller coaster in Toon Town
                              - Mickey's and Minnie's houses

                              Working backwards, an attraction that never has a wait would be an "A":
                              - Main Street vehicles
                              - Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln
                              - Sleeping Beauty castle walk-through
                              - Innoventions
                              - Enchanted Tiki Room (feels like sacrilege to put it here, with the recent anniversary and all the attention)

                              Attractions with 5-10 minute waits (with moderate crowds) would be "B's":
                              - Davy Crockett canoes
                              - Tom Sawyer Island rafts
                              - Mark Twain steamboat and Columbia
                              - Pooh ride in Critter Country
                              - Monorail
                              - Carousel

                              Rides with slightly longer waits (10-20 minutes with moderate crowds) would be "C's":
                              - Buzz Lightyear
                              - Most of the Fantasyland dark rides
                              - Small World

                              I don't visit the parks that frequently, so my categorization by wait times may be distorted. But I think it shouldn't matter if the attraction has a line full of toddlers and their parents or adults and teens, if a ride or attraction is popular, it should get a higher designation by ticket.
