The "F" Ticket repost

In June of 1959 Disneyland added the “E” ticket to its lineup of letter attractions tickets. The “E Ticket” has since become part of the American Lexicon. What's not as well know is that in the spring of 1964 Walt was looking for ways to increase Disneyland’s ticket revenue, that World’s Fair thing was costing him a bundle.

As was customary, Walt left the details to his trusted employees and they came up the idea of “plusing” all the existing E-ticket attractions at once and moving them to a new “F” Ticket. Rumor has it Walt was not keen on the use of the letter “F” (as in failure or worse) and the idea was quickly scrapped. What you are looking at here is an extremely rare June 1964 limited test run of Disneyland’s only “F” ticket.





*** Yes it's been three years since I did a post, the dog seriously ate my homework! I'll try and post more soon. ****

Welcome back!!!

Also your host where you posted the larger magazine PDFs, vintagedisneylandtickets.com has been down for a while. For example on https://vintagedisneylandtickets.blogspot.com/2008/06/bonus-sunday.html you have a link to Vacationland Magazine, and that link http://www.vintagedisneylandtickets.com/images/Vacationland%20Summer%201977.pdf no longer works.

I found a 1958 Disney ticket book intact never used and in beautiful shape. It has an X on the serial number so I think it is a complimentary ticket book. I looked everywhere and have not seen one like this intact. Do you have any idea of the worth? I could scan a picture of it.
