    Are the old Disneyland ticket books worth anything?

    My sister and I were cleaning out some stuff and I came across some old ticket books. I have three of them that still have the D, C, and A tickets (I know, ironic). And I have one book that has E, D, C, and A.

    Should I hold on to these? There isn't a date on them so I don't know how old they really are.
    Here's a picture of one.

    Look at the attractions listed. You can get an idea of the date from that. Complete ticket books can fetch $50 or so on eBay, incomplete 5-20 on average. Hang on to them, they are no longer made, and becoming harder to find.

    Don't let those things out of your hands!!!

    In fact, don't even handle them too much. They really should be considered artifacts, and care taken to protect them in an archival way. Ask me about it next time we see each other, hopefully in a couple weeks at the park. I'm eager to hear when they were printed.

    Can't see to clearly... but I think I see Small World on the D ticket.... am I correct? I'm at least seeing something that looks like "World."

    Re: Are the old Disneyland ticket books worth anything?

    I would hold on too them. I have some that have not been used. Also I have one corporate ticket book as well. I plan to shadow box them so they can't be tampered with.

    Be careful of our responses folks, they may be taken and percieved another way. Thanks.

    According to yesterland, the pack mules ended in 1973, so the ticket book is pre-1973

    With them ending in 1973, I'd probably date them maybe closer to 1967-1970 since all of the World's Fair attractions were installed.

    Explorer Canoes with new name makes this after May 1971 (Indian War Canoes close to become Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes in May 19, 1971)

    Bear Country opened in 1972 with Country Bear Jamboree opening on March 24 of that year, which isn't included on the ticket....soooooo.......

    This book is from the era between May 1971 and March 1972.


    If the ticket book was complete with entrance and all of the A-E tickets, it would be worth some cash. As it stands, the remaining E tickets make it more valuable than the ones without andy E tickets. But, it wtill probably wouldn't sell for over $50 on Ebay. Or, I wouldn't may over that amount to add to my collection, but you never know what the market will bear.

    Re: Are the old Disneyland ticket books worth anything?

    Thanks everybody!

    I'm gonna store them away and keep them out of harms way. It seems that they are older than I am. haha. They probably belonged to my parents before they had kids. My sister was born in April 1976.
