Were we the only family that never ran out of tickets when Disneyland had ticketbooks. My sister and I were talking about this yesterday. We would each have a big 15 ticket book with A through E tickets and That ticket book would last all day and we never felt like we were limited of what we could do. Then the amazing thing was we would bring unused tickets home.
Now I was a rider, I didn't like the shows and the parades were okay, I went to Disneyland to ride rides! So it is a mystery to me why my tickets were not gone in the first 2 hours.
I never stood around the attractions with a cardboard sign that read "Need Tickets Please help", "Will work for an E", "Bored I]ll even take an A" never happened"!
I was no rebel and there is no way I would have tried to sneak on without a ticket as the thought of being thrown into Disneyland prison and never be allowed back was a real fear. So I followed the rules. If a cast member would forget to take my ticket now that was a true gift from God. I would be a nervous wreck until I got on the ride! I just knew that the CMs were going to catch me "We found him, Call security, right here is the sneaker-oner and look at this - 15 tickets still in the book! kid you make me sick you're going down!" Luckily that never happend, gives me the shivers now, just thinking about it! I think cast members were much tougher back then, I guess they had to be, proof that history repeats itself, today it is Al Quida back then it was sneaker-oners!
I guess just maybe 15 tickets is all anyone really needs when they go to Disneyland? Hmm, do any of you old people reading this have this memory of 15 ticket abundance? What about you people who could only afford the 12 ticket book, how embarrassing that must have been, have you got past the pain? Please tell me there is no one who had to endure just a general admission ticket! If there are any left, who would admit it. What about the punks, you know who you are the sneaker-oners do you feel guilty now, can you sleep at night?
Thanks, I never post, this is why!
