Disneyland Ticket Books 59-65

On June 14 1959, Disneyland experienced its first significant expansion.  New attractions included the Submarine Voyage, the Monorail, and the Matterhorn Bobsled.  With these great new attractions, a new "E-Ticket" was introduced too.

This set of tickets also changed the lettering style of the ticket values from previous black & bold font style to a newer and contrasting red & narrow font style.

In 1960, the words "Exchange For" were replaced with the words "Good For"

Ticket Book 1961 Reproduction
Beginning in 1961, the Special Ticket Book Price was included.

Ticket Book 1965 Reproduction
1965 saw the C thru E ticket prices going up to .35 .45 & .60
(formerly .30 .35 & .50)

Technically, this was the first price increase at Disneyland.  Even during the 50's, when the D Ticket was the highest value ticket, that value was still only .50--- upon the introduction of the E ticket in 1959, the D ticket was reduced to .35 cents, allocating the max .50 value to the new E tickets until the 1965 price increase.
