    E-ticket (no not electronic) stood for the value of the ticket. In the olden days, when you went to Disneyland or WDW, you bought a book of tickets that had a few "A" tickets, some "B" tickets, etc all the way up to E. The higher the letter, the fewer of them were in the book. Each ride or attraction required a ticket. Other trivia minded people can tell you exactly what ticket was required for each ride. I vaguely remember the you could see The Swiss Family Treehouse with an "A" ticket, but don't quote me. You could purchase additional tickets, but using tickets made you choose very wisely those attractions that you wanted to go on and those that you had to pass by.

    It was setup more like a carnival than a theme park.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Just because the attractions took separate tickets instead of one price for everything?

    It was still a theme park, and it was much more affordable then.

    Uhm... yeah I know it was still a park. I meant the ticketing was setup more like a carnival... not Disney World.

    All Ears has a great WDW Ticket History section. I have sent them several scans to add to their database. They also show special event tickets (MVMCP, Grad Nite) as well as tickets to attractions that are no longer (Discovery Island, Ft. Wilderness RR).
