  • Current E-Tickets of Disneyland

    OK, tell what current attractions at Disneyland you think are good enough to be E-Ticket by today's standars?

    Here are my thoughts: Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Matterhorn, Star Tours, Haunted Mansion, and Space Mountain. (Althought Jungle Cruise was origanaly one, I think it's C or D now.)

      You forgot Indy. (^ beat me to it ... )

      Jungle Cruise might still be an E, especially after it's rumored extensive rehab going on right now.

      I know some people consider It's a small world an E-ticket. I would say during the Holiday season it's an E, the rest of the year, a solid D.

        Indy is only at WDW, but you might mean Autopia, I consider that a D-Ticket myself!

            You mean the 'temple of the forbidden eye'?

              I think they mean Indiana Jones...

              Star Tours is an E? seems more like at least a D to me.
              How about rodger rabbit?

                  Jungle Cruise
                  Indianna Jones
                  Haunted Mansion
                  Pirates of the Caribbean
                  Splash Mt.
                  Big Thunder
                  Matterhorn FL-side
                  Matterhorn TL-side
                  Space Mt.
                  Star Tours

                  Ex-E, now D:
                  Autopia (an E-Ticket to anyone over 10 but under 16)
                  Small world (could be considered an E given the length and how much there is to see.)
                  Monorail
                  Tiki Room


                  They needed to add an E-Ticket ever 5 years or so, when the park only had a few. Now that the park has 10, they simply don't need to keep adding more.

                    It is an E to anyone that hasn't been to DL 50+ times over the last 18 years. It can pull a pretty good line mid-day summer and holiday when the park reaches max "tourist denisty". When the park is full of locals... it is a walk-on.

                      All this talk of what is or is not an E-ticket is superfluous. There are no E tickets anymore, because there are no ticket books anymore. Which is stupid.
                      My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club

                        Yes, WDW's Little Indy is actually a C ticket at best, considering it is equivalent to Autopia, which was a C back in 1972.

                        Indiana Jones is strictly E ticket.

                        Star Tours, I think, would also have to be demoted to D.

                        Here are the other E tickets of 1972, as listed on http://www.justdisney.com/Features/tickets.html

                        * Mine Train Ride (Frontierland)
                        * Pack Mules (Frontierland)
                        * Jungle River Cruise (Adventureland)
                        * It's a Small World (Fantasyland)
                        * Disneyland-Alweg Monorail Trains (Tomorrowland)
                        * Matterhorn Bobsleds (Fantasyland)
                        * Enchanted Tiki Room(Adventureland)
                        * Submarine Voyage (Tomorrowland)
                        * Pirates of the Caribbean (New Orleans Square)
                        * Country Bear Jamboree (Bear Country)
                        * Haunted Mansion (New Orleans Square)

                        Pack Mules??? Maybe it was a different standard back then. That, or using live animals made it more expensive to operate... JC out, small world is iffy, Monorail has to be out until they get rid of Autopia and put something new to see in that whole area, tiki room out, and of course the closed attractions.

                          The standard was..... $.85 and a few hundred people an hour.

                          How many people would pay $3.88 today to ride pack mules.... Not many. Maybe only a few hunderd an hour.

                          Supply and demand.... Low supply, jack up the price until demand falls far enough to match the small supply.

                          This is why the dessert buffet is so expensive. They only have to sell 50 a day, so $50 each.

                            If tickets were still around, I wouldn't mind using an "E" Ticket for the following:
                            - Space Mountain
                            - Matterhorn Bobsleds
                            - "it's a small world"
                            - Splash Mountain
                            - The Haunted Mansion
                            - Pirates of the Caribbean
                            - Indiana Jones Adventure
                            - Jungle Cruise
                            - The Enchanted Tiki Room

                            D-Tickets would definately be:
                            - Star Tours (unless Lucas updates it drastically)
                            - Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
                            - Autopia
                            - Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin
                            - Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

                            ...The rest of the park's attractions would all fall under the "C" and under categories...

                            As for DCA..
                            if they were ticket-based.. The only E-Tickets would be Soarin' (maybe..) and the Tower of Terror.
                            California Screamin' is fun, but if I want to pay for a non-themed rollercoaster, I'll go to Magic Mountain (gasp!)

                                  You know... I have been thinking more and more about creating an optional ticket system for DCA. Seems like I've seen a system like this at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. You can buy the wristband, which gets you unlimited rides all day. Or you can purchase a variety of ticket packages, or even a single ticket. It might really help DCA in these formative years.

                                      But the real point of DCA is to be able to sell 2 and 3 day hoppers to out-of-towners. They're not going to introduce a ticketing system that lets the out-of-towners buy 1 day DL ticket of $50-ish, and a 5 ride ticket to DCA for $25-ish.... That kills their ability to sell 2-day hoppers for $100 and 3-day hoppers for $150.

                                      This is the same reason you can't buy a 1-day DCA ticket for $30 or $35... A price it is worth.... They'd rather not sell very many 1-day tickets to locals than admit to the out-if-towners that it is anything less than a full Disney park.

                                      Ooops, wandering off topic again.... DCA's E-Tickets are Soarin, Screamin, GRR (6 months of the year) and ToT. D-tickets??? ITTBAB I guess.

                                        Just because Screamin' is an "unthemed" coaster doesn't mean it's not an E-ticket. Remember, Matterhorn was nothing but an empty shell when it opened and the inside was U-G-L-Y.

                                        Screamin' is a great coaster, one of the best in CA. For that fact alone it's an E-ticket.

                                        Other DCA E-tickets: Soarin', GRR, Tower.
                                        D - ITTBAB, Muppets, Mullholland Madness.

                                        I would like to add that Animation could be an E-ticket just for the lobby IMO.
