 On November 23, 1980, "10-Adventure" ticket books were introduced.  These replaced A through E tickets and were good at any Magic Kingdom attraction.  A through E tickets were discontinued in preparation for the opening of Epcot Center.  Guests with leftover tickets could still use them for the attractions listed on each ticket.  

 Big Thunder Mountain opened approximately eight days before A-E tickets were phased out.  During that short window of time, it most likely required an E Ticket to ride from the existing ticket books that were already in print.   In 1982, magnetic strips were first used on some tickets.  It was also the first year that credit cards (American Express only) could be used to purchase tickets.

The following prices are an example of what tickets would cost during each year in the 1980s.
