Ticket Books Last Issued

In what year were E Tickets last issued? My sister who was born in 1973 says that she remembers them. Where they still around when she was a kid?



Disney stopped using the ticket books in 1982.

Vintage Walt Disney World: An ‘A’ Attraction or an ‘E’?


A few weeks ago, I shared my very first ticket to Walt Disney World Resort. This prompted blog reader Skip to ask if we had any photographs of the old A to E tickets used at Magic Kingdom Park. With the help of my friends at the Walt Disney Archives, I was able to track them down.

Use that E ticket wisely. Take a dive underwater on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Although all-inclusive passport tickets were introduced at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland park in June of 1981 in advance of ticket books being phased, we still often lovingly refer to attractions by their ticket letter.
