Four Points Bulletin

Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

When Disneyland first opened in 1955 it used a tiered coupon system. If the coupon system still existed today we would have have used four E tickets (the priciest of all the tiers) in the first hour we were there. (There must have been late nights before the park opened with Walt Disney and his leadership team arguing over which rides should be worth more than others.) Good thing the price is set now. Although the admission is expensive you only have to consider proximity and length of wait, not needing to factor in the ‘value’ of each ride or how many coupons you have. Today we rode nineteen rides, explored Tom Sawyer’s Island, ate at the Blue Bayou restaurant, and saw Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Parade. Disneyland truly is the happiest place on Earth.

    🥰🎄🤶🎄🤶What beautiful, new, and exciting family memories at Disneyland!! So glad it all came together! Yes, I do recall E-Tickets as a child and well in to my teen years…At the time the phrase ‘E-ticket’ became a popular expression in the American way of speaking. For example, one would say, if something was expensive, that it cost as much “…as an E-ticket at Disneyland!” So happy the three of you had such a wonderful time! 🎄🎄🎄

    There is absolutely nowhere more magical than Disneyland at Christmastime. You post shared that wondrous feeling. Wow. And I love the history thrown in, too! Beautiful. I still can’t believe you went on soooooooo many rides. Walt said, “That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget.” You, my friend, will never have that problem. I love the little kid in you.

    1. It couldn’t have been more fun. But it would have been great to see you there!
