  •  That's how I used to sneak in (4+ / 0-)

    As a teen in the 60's the easiest way to sneak into the park was to go to the hotel and jump the fence and get onto the monorail. Then we would get off inside the park. This was in the days of ticket books. We would stand by the gate and beg departing tourists for tickets. We'd get tons of A,B andC's, some D's and once in a while E's. We mainly went to pick up tourist girls out for a good time. ;-). It was like a gold mine. I live 20 minutes from Disneyland and have only been there once in the past 45 years. Can't say I'm much of a fan of Team Rat. Oh yeah, what's with the guy in the white shirt  in the top picture? Didn't he get the memo?

      he's the token straight dude, of course.

      That ticketing system early on was fascinating. There was no way they could sustain that tiered system, but it was in it's own way sort of brilliant.

      I suspect that there aren't many people who still find a way into the parks without paying. All the pick-up spots are to be found now at the free-to-enter Downtown Disney.

        OK. Works for me. I've never been prejudiced against anyone for anything. Maybe it's from growing up being the only kid with an Italian name in a school that was 99.9% Polish. I was the .1%. I luv's everybody's. Oh yeah, another way we would get in was I knew a girl who worked the gate where they checked people returning to the park with their hand stamped. When she was working we would just walk up pretend our hand was stamped and she would let us in. I do go to the House of Blues in Downtown Disney, but my pickup days are long past. :-(

          and no offense intended. My biggest applause goes out to the straight people who defend us.

          The hand-stamp trick is a good one. I've done that too.

          I saw the House of Blues the last time we were there. How is that place?

            never took it any other way. I don't like injustice for anyone. Why should someone be judged  by who they love? Okay, I'll make an exception for Nancy Reagan. It makes no difference to me. As Mr. Spock would say "it does not compute."  The HOB at Downtown Disney in Anaheim is a good venue. The only complaint I had with HOB's is there is no place to sit. Then I found out if you show them a handicap card the'll seat you in the VIP section. I have one of those so life is good.
