So what is the Disneyland in France called? Just Disneyland?
Edit, I found it. Disneyland Park.

someone who gets 1,000 posts. started the day I got 1,000 posts...
^ I think the jury is still out on Looser.
BBB - Belle's Beast's and Beau's
and what about MK - Magic Kingdom ?
I have talked to people that have said 'MK' when they are talking about the Magic Kingdom before (Mostly when it's about the Disney World one).
I know that we're mostly defining acronyms here, but what about a definition for the attractions based on the old coupon book? We keep saying, "it's the only E-ticket in Toontown" or whatever. I'm not sure everyone really understands what that really means.
I'm basing my info on the following:
Here's a start, please feel free to edit.
A-ticket: When Disneyland first opened in 1955 and up until 1981, guests visiting Disneyland purchased coupons (later called ticket books) to ride the attractions. To board the attraction, a guest tore out a coupon (choose from A, B, C, D, or E tickets) and handed that ticket to a ride operating CM. Although Disneyland no longer uses these ticket books, MiceChatters still refer to the rides by their old ticket classifications. Current 'A-ticket' rides in Disneyland include:
B-ticket: See A-ticket for full explanation of the coupon/ticket system used at Disneyland between 1955 and 1981. B-ticket attractions at Disneyland include:
- Main Street Horse Cars (Main Street)
- Horseless Carriage (Main Street)
- Omnibus (Main Street)
- Fire Engine (Main Street)
- King Arthur Carousel (Fantasyland)
- Disneyland, The First 50 Magical Years (Main Street)
- Chip 'n Dale Treehouse (Mickey's Toontown)
- Donald's Boat (Mickey's Toontown)
- Goofy's Playhouse (Mickey's Toontown)
C-ticket: See A-ticket for full explanation of the coupon/ticket system used at Disneyland between 1955 and 1981. C-ticket attractions at Disneyland include:
- Main Street Cinema (Main Street)
- Tarzan Treehouse (Adventureland)
- Casey Junior Circus Train (Fantasyland)
- Alice in Wonderland (Fantasyland)
- Innoventions (Tomorrowland) - <wonder if this is a B or C ticket? It's not a personal favorite, maybe I have it rated too low?>
- Honey, I Shrunk the Audience (Tomorrowland)
D-ticket: See A-ticket for full explanation of the coupon/ticket system used at Disneyland between 1955 and 1981. D-ticket attractions at Disneyland include:
- Peter Pan Flight (Fantasyland)
- Dumbo Flying Elephants (Fantasyland)
- Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (Fantasyland)
- Snow White's Adventures (Fantasyland)
- Mad Tea Party (Fantasyland)
- Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln (Main Street)
- Shooting Gallery (Frontierland)
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
- Gadget's Go-Coaster (Mickey's Toontown)
NOTE: Because the original Autopias were separate, they were each rated as a C-ticket. What would the combined Autopia attraction now rate? A D-ticket? Or still a C-ticket? Having ridden all iterations of the Autopia, I would argue that the combined ride rates a D-ticket. Your mileage may vary.
- Astro Orbiter (Tomorrowland)
- Autopia (Tomorrowland)
- Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters (Tomorrowland)
- Storybookland Canal Boats (Fantasyland)
- Tom Sawyer Island Rafts (Frontierland)
- Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes (Bear Country)
- Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad (Main Street, New Orleans Square and Tomorrowland)
- Columbia Sailing Ship (Frontierland)
- Mark Twain Steamboat (Frontierland)
E-ticket: See A-ticket for full explanation of the coupon/ticket system used at Disneyland between 1955 and 1981. E-ticket attractions at Disneyland include:

MiceChatters - please first check my accuracy. Did I get all the rides currently in the park? Then let the debates begin about where all the newer-than-1981 rides are classified. Also please check to see if the rides are classified correctly (I don't remember Small World being an E-ticket, thought it was C or D). Lastly, if my descriptions are too detailed, that's fine. Just call this one MiceChatter's attempt. Cheers to MiceChat!
Did MK ever have tickets, or was it always 1 price???
It'd be kind of unfair to WDW and the other parks to just have the E-tickets listed from Disneyland.
I'm all for an explanation of the different "Tickets" but maybe not full attraction rundowns of them.
Great question! And I'm not sure the answer as I can't find anything online to that effect. Totally agree about it being DL-specific and thus unfair to the other parks.
Still, the point was that we talk about E-ticket this or C-ticket that, and I'm not sure that everyone understands what we're referencing there. By listing out the attractions, we can show folks what 'thrill factor' was associated with each attraction. And isn't that what people seem to reference when folks like Al say at ToT opening something like, "DCA; 1 down, 5 more e-tickets to go"?
A compromise might be something like "examples of B-tickets are...." and then maybe not list everything out? Just a few representative attractions?
The coupons were phased out between the late 1970s and early 1980s. They were in use at the Magic Kingdom (WDW). According to Yesterland.com, Disneyland dropped the coupons entirely in June of 1982. So I'd guess from that date, that EPCOT Center was the first park to open without coupons.
Here's another entry: coupon - the technical name for Disney's old attraction tickets.
Awesome. I like the idea of explaining the "Tickets" with a few examples of attractions that are/were those ticket attractions.
EDIT - Updated with the "Tickets". Unfortunately trying to make this a global thing I had to use the terms "Disney Parks" to make sure I didn't leave anybody out. Any suggestions about another name I could use would be welcome.
I know "The Transportation and Ticket Center" for Disney World use can buy tickets there (that place inbetween Magic Kingdom & Epcot). In which is another one you use for the Glossary too.
"The Transportation and Ticket Center" can be called "TTC" too.
