  • E Ticket Magazine

    Does anyone know what has happened to E Ticket Magazine? They used to publish several times a year, yet the last issue came out almost a year ago. I know one of the brother-publishers passed away several years ago. Perhaps it is too much work for one person to handle. I recently purchased a 4-issue subscription, so I hope they keep it going!

      Just got mine yesterday. Be patient - it's a small operation, and they lost a founding member just last year.

        Thanks for the quick responses! That is good news. I think the magazine is great and I'd miss it if Jack stopped publishing. I'll look for my subscription in the mail over the next few weeks.

            New E-Ticket's out?! What's on the cover? Has Disneyana gotten theirs yet?

            Thanks!

              The "Pack Mules" attraction is the current cover story. It was a neat attraction with live burros that was located were Big Thunder Mountain is now. Way before my time!

                The Pack Mules was the cover story for issue #43 - Fall 2005. I was trying to find out when/if issue #44 was coming.

                  #44 is "Walt's Model Shop"

                  I haven't had a chance to read all of it yet, but there's some excellent stuff in there (as always).

                    New issue is mainly about how the designers did/do modeling for
                    attractions. As always, interesting stuff. I've been E-ticketing
                    since volume 7. I miss the mailbag section where they displayed
                    comments from readers.

                      Funny, #43 was the issue in Disneyana on Saturday. I picked it up and leafed through it. It is also on the E Ticket website as the new issue.

                        Then I guess Disneyana didn't get the new one yet as of last Saturday. Hopefully they'll have it this weekend.

                        I prefer to pick it up there instead of subscribing -- gives me something to look for every DL visit.

                          Frequently, the website lags behind the actual publication date.

                          The current issue focuses on the WDI model shop, featureing an article on Fred Joerger.

                          Quick, shameless plug: My E.P. Ripley model is shown in this issue!

                                  I hear ya. However I prefer to buy direct from the publisher. That way they get all the $$. As noted earlier, this is a family-run business, started by two brothers who just loved Disneyland. As fans, we are all lucky to have such a professionally-produced and affordable resource for Disneyland history.
                                  I started with issue #40 (which I think I may have heard about on the Miceage website) and then bought all the back issues avaialble direct from the publisher. Then I scoured Ebay for the out of print issues and have all dating back to Issue #9 (small fortune, let me tell you).

                                    Excellent point you made about the $$ going directly to Janzen & Co. That might make me rethink my E Ticket buying habits... However, I have picked up a couple hundred dollars worth of back issues from them directly, so I can proudly say I've supported this great publiciation.

                                    My first issue, btw, goes all the way back to #5, with 20,000 leagues on the cover, from '88 when I was 12 years old! Unfortunately, I fell out of collecting E Tickets in the '90s, but I'm paying for it now, with the back issues direct and the ones on eBay!

                                      Funny that this subject has come up. I just started re-reading my collection starting with issue #6 (Advetureland).
                                      Last night I was reading issue 7 about Marc Davis. This was the Janzens first big interview with a Disney Legend and you can tell just from reading the articles that they are totally pumped aboput this interview. (As a sidebar, did anyone get the impression from that article that Marc Davis was bragging quite a bit too much about his input at Disneyland after he showed up?)
                                      It was nice to see the growth of the E-Ticket of the years. Such a shame about Leon though... no slam against Jack, but Leon wrote some great articles. Now, it's all on Jacks shoulders. I'm grateful that he is still putting out the magazine.
                                      Without the E-Ticket I would never have learned as much about Walt Disney, Disneyland and the people that built it!
                                      Thanks for the heads-up about a new issue, I was beginning to wonder if Jack was going to hang it up.
