Walt Disney World 1978 E-Ticket to Space Mountain

It’s time for the Florida park some to get some attention. Let’s take his 1978 “E” Ticket and see if we can have some fun. This “E” ticket really does have Walt Disney World’s best attractions, decisions decisions…





How about Space Mountain? The attraction sure looks great even in black and white! The photo is dated 1978, but it could be an older stock photo. The Skyway bucket sure seems "open"...






The description is taped to the back and the tape has become one with the photo backing so you’ll have to tilt your head to read it. Oh, Copyright Walt Disney Productions, so there.






In case you’re curious, here is the back of the 1978 WDW ticket book. They stopped listing all the attractions a few years after they shrunk the tickets down (Disneyland listed the attraction until the end of the lettered tickets). It does list the free attractions, too bad “If you had Wings” is gone, it seemed really fun.






$9, late 70’s inflation rearing its ugly head. Notice the Florida state sales tax, the marvelous state of California (in one of its many states of confusion) is considering a 10% sales tax on theme park tickets, that’s bound to help the economy!





Come back tomorrow to kick off a Thanksgiving Weekend at Disneyland with Frankie Avalon.

I love that sculpture outside the entrance to Space Mountain... did that go away when RCA's sponsorship ended?
