The History of Walt Disney World Tickets

Young people today might not know this, but Walt Disney World tickets have gone through quite the evolution since the opening of the park. Back with the theme park first opened, back when all they had was the Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World tickets had letter designations from A to E. The higher the letter, the more expensive it was, and (of course) the bigger the attraction you used it on. An A ticket was for something small and simple (and cheap) like the trolley ride or the Main Street USA Movie Theater, and rides like Space Mountain were an E ticket. The Walt Disney World tickets even influenced our pop culture; people would say that something was really great by calling it an E ticket ride.

In terms of buying the Walt Disney World tickets, you could get packages: a lot of one type, or a variety pack, which was a very economical way to get a lot of them. And then, throughout the park were ticket kiosks where you could get more. At each ride, you had to turn in the appropriate ticket for collection. But, the thing was, these kinds of Walt Disney World tickets were time-consuming and troublesome. If a family of four had three C tickets and wanted to go to the Haunted Mansion, they had to first stand in line to buy one more. And, as we all know, Disney World is famous for making people stand in line! Not the most affordable and economical way to do things.

So, the Disney Company, ever looking for ways to improve things and make the park more affordable, introduced something new to the Walt Disney World tickets: an all-access pass. You paid one fee at the door, got a ticket, and could just show it at the gate to any attraction. This was an incredible boost to overall efficiency, and really quite the cheap means of seeing everything. Gone was the need to sorting through a variety of tickets; and gone was the need to collect then.

The company saw real potential for cost-savings and a streamlining of the queuing process. So, over time, they gradually phased out the other Walt Disney World tickets and strictly went with the passes. This meant all the ticket kiosks could be changed to food, beverage and/or gift stores; a very economical transition. Also, they no longer needed cast members to stand at every ride and show to collect tickets. The staff could be re-assigned.

Initially, these Walt Disney World tickets were only for the Magic Kingdom, and you could get a one-day or a ticket good for several days. Then, as other theme parks were added to the property, they were given their own types of Walt Disney Tickets. The next step was the introduction of the Park Hopper Passes. These Walt Disney tickets allowed you to visit any of the theme parks for a set number of days.

And then there is the ultimate in Walt Disney World tickets: the annual passes. Here again, there are a variety to choose from. You can get them for just one of the parks, for all of the theme parks, and then the ultimate-ultimate all-access pass: good for everything in the resort. This may sound confusing, but Walt Disney World now encompasses far more that merely theme parks. There are the water parks like Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, miniature golf courses, and so much more. Now, one little caveat here: these types of Walt Disney World tickets can be very expensive. So, investing in an annual pass is not something you do lightly. Unless you plan on visiting quite often, the park hopper and other daily Walt Disney World tickets are the best way to go.
