    The old ticket system

    Speaking of the old ticket book system (someone had just made a thread about their old ticket book), I always wondered...why was it discontinued? Are any of the old booths still around, disguised as something else?

    Because
    1) Magic Mountain did a "one-price, all-day" ticket, and DL was forced to do the same.
    2) They actually make MORE money with the $53 all-or-nothing ticket than they would make by letting you in for $20, then hoping you spend $33 on rides.
    3) Lower labor costs.

    Isn't the Alice mushroom a former ticket booth?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    One more that I recall... the one one behind dumbo. I think it's used as a photo area
    with dumbo now. I think it was the one for the Casey Jr Train.

    I don't remember/know this, but the Kodak shop near IASW looks like it could have
    been one.

    I vaguely remember there was one near the now-unused skyway station in FantasyLand, but
    I'm not sure.

    If I remember correctly, DL first had a "red ribbon" that allowed you to ride the same ride as many times as you wanted. The precursor to the way it is now.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.

    I have been looking around the Internet trying to find original pics of these without much success.

    I did find one of daddyb's pages that has pics of each remaining ticket booth: (except one) click here
    I believe they've all already been mentioned. (except the possible matterhorn?)

    Disney Direct has a replica of a tomorrowland one.

    tikiroom.com has a little info and pics of the replica tiki room booth as well as the tomorrowland one. (And lists the others that will be released as part of the 50th merch stuff)

    And laughing place has a picture of what might be a replica of the mad tea party booth?

    that's all I've got
    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...

    Now I am confused. I always use SBC for Sleeping Beauty Castle. I always use it for the phone company. But I can't ever recall hearing of that abbreviation. Story Book Canal... I guess? Could someone fill me in, or was it just a mistake. Maybe I'm just tired, but any help would be appreciated.
