Our sister park in Florida has a Fortieth Birthday coming up in a couple of weeks so let’s help celebrate with some Walt Disney World posts! Sometimes when I post Walt Disney World stuff I get mixed reactions, there’s a couple readers that have told me they just skip right over my WDW posts – no worries, there’s always plenty of Disneyland stuff to post, but for the next couple weeks expect to see a few Walt Disney World posts.
Let’s take a look at a some WDW Transportation Tickets. Yes you park about 20 miles from the actual theme park in Florida so walking is not an option, OK its not that far, but unless you can swim, you'll need one of these tickets. Usually a Transportation Ticket was included in the ticket book as seen here in my September 2010 post (link). These tickets appear to have been sold separately, I guess in case you wanted to only ride the Monorail and not enter the park, sounds fun to me!
Use this Transportation Ticket and you assume all risk. “They bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into, I say, let 'em crash”.
The Child ticket was $1 cheaper than the Adult Ticket and pink?
I don’t have a standalone Junior Transportation Ticket in my collection, so here’s one attached to a ticket book along with a Main Gate Admission ticket.
This book only had one ticket left, but boy are there a lot of good choices on this “D” ticket from February 1977. Mickey Mouse Revue for me!
Those elegant curly-cues let you know this is the upscale “East Coast” park.
For a few years they didn’t put the attraction list on the inside back cover, just a note about the “free” attractions.
Of course Florida had to be different with the back cover and go with a “Portrait” orientation.
From a Bonus Sunday post back in July 2008 here’s the complete “Your Complete Guide to Walt Disney World” 1977. July 2008 was back from when I made my first (and only) trip to Walt Disney World, check out my Trip Reports here (part 1) and (part 2).
