    Hello: You probably get this question a lot BUT I found some old ticket books and wondered if they can still be used OR traded in for current admission or a discount? They are the A,B,C,D E books. If you need pictures, I can send for you to review. Thanks!

    Hey there, Jann. Welcome to planDisney. We're so glad you found us and stopped by to ask your question.

    One of the things I love about the Disneyland Resort is the history and nostalgia. Boy, oh boy, do you have your hands on a lovely piece of history, Jann. I've heard of other Guests redeeming old theme park tickets for new ones, however, was not aware if these ticket books could be exchanged and was quite curious about the answer myself. So, I called a friendly Cast Member who shared that they unfortunately are not able to help over the phone. However, you can take your vintage ticket books and visit a ticket booth in person at the main entrance to see if they are still able to be used.

    If you are planning to visit the Disneyland Resort soon, I strongly recommend purchasing your theme park tickets and making theme park reservations ahead of time. We are getting ready to dive into the busy spooky season and reservations may not be available on a last-minute basis and you can decide if and how you might want to use this vintage ticket book in the future. 

    In the early days, Guests would purchase general admission to the theme park and then purchase tickets at each attraction. Fun fact, if you pay close attention the next time you're at Disneyland, you can spot some of these old ticket booths - like the striped lighthouse in front of the Storybook Land Canal Boats or the mushroom nestled into the queue of Alice in Wonderland. By October of 1955, the ticket books (like you have) were introduced and used in the park up until 1982. These vintage ticket books are a piece of Disneyland history and are highly sought after by many Disney fans. I encourage you to take a peek at the history of these ticket books. 

    Although I wasn't able to provide a direct answer, I hope the information is still helpful, Jann. Should you have any other questions that we can help with, please come back to visit us. Until then, I wish you all the luck and either way hope you're able to visit the Happiest Place on Earth soon!
