    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.)

    Good reasoning. At least you don't come out of there totally disoriented with jelly legs (ie most of the rides at Six Flags). It's a nice change of pace... invigorating.

    Anyway, if DCA had E-Tickets that & ToT.

    ^ In California period.

    Screamin' is my favorite coaster in CA, period. There are some that come close (Xcelerator at Knott's comes to mind), but I still think Screamin' is better.

    Sure it's not the biggest, fastest but it's fun. And that's what a coaster is supposed to be.

    Do you mean DCA or in CA in general, because if it's the latter, there are a couple of coasters down at Knott's and Six Flags that seem like they would pwn Screamin'.

    Re: E-ticket

    Splash Mountain
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    BTMR
    Matterhorn (do they have fastpasses for this ride yet?)
    Haunted Mansion
    Space Mountain (when it comes back up)

    I really don't know if Peter Pan should be E-Ticket cause it's so short!

    Which is why they themed it inside, unlike Screamin'.

    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.

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.

    California Screamin' is fun, but if I want to pay for a non-themed rollercoaster, I'll go to Magic Mountain (gasp!)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    You mean the 'temple of the forbidden eye'?
