Disneyland Ticket Exchange Policy Part 4 - Guided Tours & A thru E Tickets

Let's continue our weekly in depth look at Disneyland's ticket exchange policy of the early 1980's. 

Individual or "loose" tickets were assigned points, you could add these points up and get a discount on the new Passports or if you have enough points you could exchange them directly for a Passport.  Cash was never given in exchange for the tickets - even the old 1950's tickets have "not subject to refund" on the back.

A detached Guided Tour ticket was worth 40 points.

The attraction tickets that were originally attached to the Guided Tour tickets were worth 5 points each.

The math gets a bit fuzzy for the in park ticket books with 38 points assigned to all complete books that sold for $3.75 or less.

Next up the A thru E tickets.  This first set is for Central Booth Tickets (CBT). Since these tickets were sold individually in the park at full price they get higher exchange values.

According to this sheet from the ticker binder book, the A thru E tickets from ticket books were valued lower and with a somewhat easier value system.  Part M.1.3.4 is really getting fuzz, pay attention, they'll be a test at the end of this series...

Here are some assorted individual tickets and the point values.  Why does the vintage train ticket only get 8 points?

Magi-pak and Magic Key tickets (or coupons) were all good for 5 points each. Did they post this information for guests or was it a surprise when you got there?

I have a few of these!

And these...

And these...

How can I tell if the 2nd half of a Monorail Ticket is missing? - This might help.

It sort of kills me that the tickets were pasted or stapled in, or their covers were removed to show the backs!
