    Re: Definitive MiceChat list of Magic Kingdom Attractions from A to E

    Although I know most of you will find this hard to believe, but "Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island" required an E-Ticket.

      Even harder to believe is that many of the MK's so-called E-tickets no longer deserve that qualification when compared to the same rides at the other DL parks. That is how outdated they really are.

        Re: Definitive MiceChat list of Magic Kingdom Attractions from A to E

        OK - So I grew up on the Left Coast, with a lot of visits to Disneyland, and a few visits to WDW. For me, the system of ticketing an attraction can become very complicated. Even while Walt was alive, attractions would either move up or down the scale sometimes.

        "A" Ticket - Main Street Vehicles; Carousel

        "B" Ticket - Enhanced Transportation; small scale attraction with minimal theming; may have some interactive area(s); Character Houses

        "C" Ticket - Basic Dark Ride Attractions (Fantasyland); Movie Based Attractions with little or no additional elements (e.g. "AA" Characters that interact with the film); generally shorter (less than 5 minutes)

        "D" Ticket - More imersive; Multi-media (can use a combination of Film; "AA" Characters; Live-Action Characters; etc.); usually longer (more than 5 minutes)

        "E" Ticket - Highly Themed Attractions; Use of either many "AA" Characters (e.g. Pirates; Haunted Mansion); addition of "Thrill" Factor (Mountain Attractions);

        -"It's a small world" - "D" Ticket
        -Astro Orbiter - "D"Ticket
        -Big Thunder Mountain Railroad "E" Ticket
        -Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin "D" Ticket
        -Country Bear Jamboree "D" Ticket
        -Donald's Boat "B" Ticket
        -Dumbo the flying elephant "C" Ticket
        -Frontierland Shootin' Arcade "C" Ticket
        -Jungle Cruise "D" Ticket
        -Liberty Square Riverboat "D" Ticket
        -Mad Tea Party "C" Ticket
        -Main Street Vehicles "A" Ticket
        -Mickey's Country House "B" Ticket
        -Mickey's PhilharMagic "D" Ticket
        -Minnie's Country House "B" Ticket
        -Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor "C"Ticket
        -Peter Pan's Flight "C" Ticket
        -Pirates of the Caribbean "E" Ticket
        -Prince Charming Regal Carousel "A" Ticket
        -Snow White's Scary Adventure "C" Ticket
        -Space Mountain "E" Ticket
        -Splash Mountain "E" Ticket
        -Stitches Great Escape "D" Ticket
        -Swiss Family Treehouse "B" Ticket
        -The Barnstormer "B" Ticket
        -The Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management "D" Ticket
        -The Hall of Presidents "E" Ticket
        -The Haunted Mansion "E" Ticket
        -The Magic Carpets of Agrabah "C" Ticket
        -The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh "C" Ticket
        -Tom Sawyer Island "C" Ticket
        -Tomorrowland Speedway "D" Ticket
        -TTA Peoplemover "C" Ticket
        -Walt Disney World RailRoad "D" Ticket
        -Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress "D" Ticket

        So - the total count is:

        A:2
        B:4
        C:10
        D:12
        E:6

          -Country Bear Jamboree
          -The Jungle Cruise
          -The Hall of Presidents
          -The Haunted Mansion


          Ok now that is the old list... But how should we organize the park the way it is now?
          I am going to list out the attractions, and if you will just go through and assign them a letter hopefully we can come to a consensus.

          -"It's a small world" D
          -Astro Orobiter D
          -Big Thunder Mountain Railroad E
          -Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin E

          I think this would be close.

              I undertand some of the various ratings for many of the attractions, but one I just don't understand. Several people have rated the Astro Orbitor as a "D" ticket? Really? Only one step below the highest level ticket? Or were some people rating it as a D, more in the rating of grades that you get in school? Which in that case would make it below average?

                  Out of curiosity, what ticket level was "The Mickey Mouse Revue"?

                  Mike and Karen ran toward the old house, through the old iron gate, and onto the porch for protection. Protection...? If only they had known...

                    I remember the ticket books and I'm looking at your list - For some reason, I always remember Peter Pan's Flight as being a D ticket. Also - wasn't Mickey Mouse Revue on the original list? I thought that was an E ticket.

                    I would put it's second or third successor, Mickey's Philharmagic, as an E ticket for sure.

                    I've been looking at other lists - someone put Stitch's great escape as a C attraction - sorry, I'd have to put it down among the B's, possibly A's

Of course, I am only considering those attractions that can be found at the other DL parks worldwide, where 99.7% of the time, those rides are superior in executions and show over the ones at the MK.
                      Gee, what a surprising response.

                        I think it opened in 1972, so it wasn't on the original list of attractions. I figured it was probably either a "D" or "E" ticket.

                          I think it opened in 1972, so it wasn't on the original list of attractions. I figured it was probably either a "D" or "E" ticket.
                          I am just using the ticket books I found as a guide. They had whichever attractions they had on them, so I posted it as a jumping point, a point of reference.

                          I must say I really like everyone's responses. They are kind of fun, and I hope we can come up with this definitive list.

                            So at a glance, the most disagreement seems to be on the following:
                            Astro Orbiter
                            Country Bear Jamboree
                            Dumbo
                            Philarmagic
                            Laugh floor
                            Peter Pan'
                            Stitch
                            Barnstormer
                            Tiki room UNM
                            the cars
                            the train
                            the peoplemover
                            carousel of progress

                            A lot of oldies but goodies on this list. Perhaps a reflection of different levels of nostalgia for a given attraction.

                            Stitch, I think people don't know what to do with. It should be a D or an E but it's too terrible to give it that.

                                  The problem is that not everyone is going to agree, so you can call it a consensus but there will will be people who disagree, so it won't be 100% accurate.
                                  Here's what I say:

                                  Good morning, son
                                  In twenty years from now
                                  Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                                  And I can tell you 'bout today
                                  And how I picked you up and everything changed
                                  It was pain
                                  Sunny days and rain
                                  I knew you'd feel the same things...
