From David L.What rides do you consider to be E-tickets? include Disney and Universal only please. Also include which ones are D, C, B, and A tickets. As many rides from each park you've been to would be great.

as for Disney
E: Mission Space, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Test Track, Everest, Tower of Terror, Rockin Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania, Pirates, Haunted Mansion
From Justin KermgardTo simplify things. The attractions at Disney that offer Fastpass are generally E-Ticket attractions as they are the most popular. I'd say same goes for Universal as well.

E tickets only (it'll take a lot of time for me to figure out the rest)-
From David L.Justin, peter pan offers fast pass(i think) and it's certainly not an E-ticket. And Pirates doesn't offer fast pass and it certainly is. Also, why don't people think SpaceShip Earth is an E-ticket? It is just as good as Mansion and Pirates(it does lack a line but the post show makes up for it. Also the interactivity and AAs i think are just as good).

From Formula 40Define "e-ticket".

From David L.Formula, you aren't familiar with them? A long time ago disney charged tickets for their rides. Ex: A ticket was $1, B was $2, or something like that. A was the lowest and E was the highest in terms of price and how good the ride was. Today we just use the term to grade rides. So E-tickets are the best rides( Tower of Terror and Splash Mountain unless you think those rides are lame for some strange reason).

From Formula 40^^Good to know. I always thought it was just one of those "terms" for really popular rides.

From Tim WI wouldn't consider all rides that have fastpasses to be e tickets. Winnie The Pooh and Peter Pan in my opinion are D tickets in my opinion at the very least.

As for my classification of tickets:
From David L.Wow Tim, Fantasmic=A-ticket??? Tower of terror=D-ticket???Goofy's barnstormer=E-ticket??? PhilarMagic=A-ticket???Figmant=C-ticket???(i guess that one MIGHT work, but not many people would think that).

From Mark HollamonRanking attractions by the A-E ticket scale is pretty hard and is a matter of opinion. I personally believe when parks develop attractions they are going strictly for "E" ticket. Why would you develop less?

That being said there are some that end up in different categories than were expected. For example: Kali River Rapids. I know what they were trying to do, but it falls very short for me.
On the other end of the spectrum (and a short drive up I-4) is Popeye's Bilge Rat Barges. That is E ticket all the way. It delivers what it says it is going to and some!
I also think rides evolve up and down the scale over time. There is the nostalgia factor that will always weigh on people's opinions. I will always love The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and consider it high on my list and It's a Small World....not so much.
From Nick Markham^David, that would be crazy for today, but I think the way Tim has it might have been the way it was back when they had the different tickets, or at least something similar!
