    If so... How much did they cost when you went there?

    This one is from the 70's.

    "When Disneyland first opened in July 1955, there were no ticket books. Guests paid a general admission fee to get in and then paid to ride each ride individually. Disneyland began to sell ticket books later in 1955. There were 3 tickets “A,” “B,” or “C” The best rides required a “C” ticket. The following year 1956, Disneyland introduced the "D" ticket. In 1959 the Big 10 ticket book was introduced including the "E" ticket. The "E" ticket was used for the best rides and worked its way down to the "A" ticket, for the smaller, less popular rides. The ticket book provided one “A” ticket, one “B” ticket, two “C” tickets, three “D” tickets, and three “E” tickets."

    I think I'd rather die than go to anything Disney-related.
