March 1973 finds Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes in a new land, Bear Country! Did they actually moved the loading area at this time? Anyone know?
Last of the larger size tickets, from April 1973. No changes, I just like it....
First of the smaller tickets from June 1974. They reordered the attractions in Tomorrowland, I have no idea why, it's the same rides! The Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland has arrived on the "D" ticket back from a few years stay on the "E" ticket.
June 1976 finds three attraction name changes. "Flight to the Moon" is now "Mission to Mars", the moon is so yesterday! "Tom Sawyer Island Rafts" is now "Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island" Why? And the "Tomorrowland Jets" are now the "Rocket Jets" that one sounds cooler, why didn't they do that in 1967?
And notice the People Mover is missing, it's gone from the attraction list in the back of the ticket book too. I bet it's closed due to the construction of Space Mountain! Also, sadly this is the last appearance on a ticket of the Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland, RIP...
America's Sings joins this June 1977 "D" ticket and the People Mover is back.
How did this get in my pocket? Let's try and use this May 1978 Knott's "D" ticket at Disneyland, think they'll notice? Funfact: Knott's lettered tickets are valued in the reverse order from Disneyland's and Knott's never had and "E" ticket. This "D" ticket is for Knott's least expensive attractions.
Last, from September 1980, heading into winter it seems that the Columbia and the Canoes are both missing. I think they only ran these on nice days and weekends therefore the didn't want them listed on the tickets as not to disappoint the guests?
Oh boy, I sure do love reviewing these tickets. And thank you so much for your nice comments.
This weekend; Saturday is a mystery and Sunday is the 1965 INA Guide full post blowout.
Next week... (drum roll please) The "E" Ticket Series!
