    Is this an E Ticket ride?

    • uclamom

      The phrase E ticket (or E ticket ride) refers to an unusually interesting, thrilling, or expensive experience. It derives from the admission ticket system used at the Disneyland and Magic Kingdom theme parks before 1982, where the E ticket (officially termed “E coupon”) admitted the bearer to the newest, most advanced, and/or most popular rides and attractions.
