Marty McFly and the “E” Ticket Adventure

Imagine jumping into Marty McFly’s DeLorean and setting the time circuits. You rev it up, viagra generic try accelerate to 88mph, sildenafil illness and the flux capacitor does the rest. Screeching to a stop, viagra you step out of the car. You’re at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando’s Walt Disney World October, 1971.

(Magic Kingdom just opened. It’s the only theme park at Disney World at this time. Besides the park, there is the Ticket & Transportation Center, Polynesian Resort and Contemporary Resort all connected along with the Magic Kingdom by monorail.)

To get into the park, you need to buy tickets at the ticket window. Hmmm. You can get an 8 Adventure Ticket Book for $5.75 or a 12 Adventure Ticket BooTicket Books, Walt Disney Worldk for $6.75. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so you probably should get the 12 Adventures that includes 1-A, 1-B, 2-C, 4-D and 4-E tickets plus park entry.

Once inside you see that each ride requires a ticket (i.e., A-B-C-D or E). If you need additional tickets, you can purchase them at Ticket Booths. The length, complexity and popularity of the ride determine the ticket value – “A” being the least expensive and “E” ticket, the most expensive.
