Theme park wayback machine: The Magic Key ticket
Written by Robert Niles
Many of we, uh, older Disney fans remember the days before 1982, when you needed individual tickets to get on most of the attractions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.Tweet
I visited Walt Disney World with my Boy Scout troop in October 1981, and marveled at the newfangled "World Passport" that allowed me to visit any ride I wanted, as often as I wanted. No more fumbling with the little paper books of A through E tickets that I'd grown up with in Anaheim. And, better yet, no running out of tickets!
While the World Passport was great, there was another ticket before it that allowed you to ride whatever you wanted in the Magic Kingdom. But I'd forgotten about it until Theme Park Insider reader Susan Jackson emailed me these photos of the "Magic Key" coupon.
Anyone else remember these?
A big thank you to Susan, for sharing these memories.
If you have some fun and interesting items of theme park memorabilia (old maps, tickets, photos, etc.), let me know and we'll feature them on Theme Park Insider's home page.
