  • If Ticket Books were around.....

    If Ticket Books were still around, what ticket category (A, B, C, D, or E) would you give an attraction that came after 1982 when they were eliminated?

    I would give Captain EO a D Ticket. It was somewhat thrilling, but not as thrilling as an E Ticket.

      I was wondering how they decided what rank to give to an attraction. I read recently that (I think, don't flame me if I'm wrong...) Jungle Cruise was either a C or D ticket, which surprised me. I figured it would have been an E. So how did they decide? :confused:

      I will say that I doubt it was based on the thrill factor of a ride...

        back in 1955.... there was no E.... D was the highest.. he invented the E ticket when he created something big.. (Materhorn??)

        I would give Buzz, , any new rides in FL.... a D ticket.... (Dark rides should be C or D...)

        Pooh would be a C....

        I would give splash.. IJA.... an E ticket...

          Well in 1955, there was no D or E ticket, so it could only be the highest, a C ticket. Then in 1956, the D ticket was introduced so it changed to a D ticket. 1959, the E ticket was introduced so it changed to an E ticket.

            Full list of rides and corresponding ticket level from 1972 posted here:
            http://www.yesterland.com/abcde.html

            Jungle Cruise was E-Ticket sat this time. So was the pack mule ride.


            How did they decide the level? Simple economics... Supply and demand.

            How much can we charge and maintian the ride operating a full capacity? If the queue is full, then you're not charging too much. If the queue is empty, then you need to drop the ride to a lower ticket level.

            Something like the pack mules, with a very low capacity (couple hundred an hour) could charge a lot more than say The Motorboat Cruise(thousand an hour) simply becuase the supply was lower.

            However, most E-Tickets were in that category because of the high demand side, not the low supply side.

              That totally makes sense in that most of the attractions with AA figures (including It's a Small World) were E-tickets.

                Interesting. I guess I just always assumed that the ticket rankings were based on, I don't know, maybe entertainment value or something like that. So the "big" rides like Pirates and Mansion would be E-tickets while the Main Street Vehicles would be A-ticket. But I guess that's not really the case.

                Is it true that Lincoln didn't require a ticket at all, that it was a free attraction?

                But anyway, back on topic:
                I guess I would give Splash and Indy an E.
                Pooh gets a C.
                Roger Rabbit gets a D (although this is a tough one. I'd like to give it an E, but I'm not sure it's worthy of that...)

                  Alice in Wonderland was a "C"...Peter Pan was a "D" i found on yesterland... interesting.

                  Maybe the price was determined by cost to Disney of the upkeep of the ride? Mules being an "E" ticket, etc...

                        You know the whole idea about an "E Ticket Ride" came about when astronaut Sally Ride used the phrase when describing her first flight into space. (1980's) I think at the time it made sense, but before that Disneyland wasn't really about E ticket rides.

                        Am I rambling? Okay, I say that the entire Disneyland Mountain Range is E all the way!

                          Mr. Lincoln, as I recall, had a special ticket in the front of the ticket book - separate from the A-E tickets...kind of an incentive to go and see it without spending your ride tickets.... (I could be wrong... it was a while back!).
                          ....it all began with a Mouse...

                            Yep, I think that sounds more like what I meant. Thanks!
