So post away, give those great descriptions of the terms, people and acronyms of all the great things that makes MiceChat, MiceChat.
Also, if you have any better descriptions for what is already here (or just want to add), post that as well and they will be added.
A Ticket - When Disneyland first opened in 1955 and Magic Kingdom in 1971, guests visiting Disneyland and WDW's Magic Kingdom 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. The higher the ticket, the more immersive the attractions were. The use of these ticket books stopped in 1981 but MiceChatters still refer to the rides by their old ticket classifications. Although these coupons were never used at parks such as TDL, DLP and HKDL, attractions at these parks are still referred to in this way. Examples of current A-ticket rides would be the Main Street Vehicles and Pooh's Thoughtful Spot (WDW)
