The A-B-C’s of Disneyland Tickets

Today’s Disneyland guests go from attraction to attraction without a care. But most guests in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s needed a ticket for each ride. Tickets came in denominations of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” and “E”—with “E” tickets being the best.

Let’s suppose you visited Disneyland in the Summer of 1972. This page tells you what tickets were required for each attraction.
