    Not sure what you mean by comp? :unsure:

    If there is no expiration date on them, it certainly wouldn't hurt to check with the gate to see if they still work for entry.

    The older tickets were said to never have an expiration date. The newer tickets expire unless you pay extra so that they don't.

    I agree with Tink.....check at the gate or customer service.

    Hi thanks for the info. The ticket book says complimentary guest on it, I assume they were given out as a prize or some such thing. The reason I asked if anyone thought they would still be good is that I put them on Ebay and someone asked me if they would still work and frankly it never occurred to me that they might still honor them. Like you said doesn't hurt to ask but I will let the winning bidder do that. Thanks again. Sue

    Complimentary tickets often have an expiration date on them. Look carefully for a series of numbers.

    Why would someone purchase a ticket if they didn't think it would work? :unsure:

    Hi I know it seems weird but the old tickets are collectible. There was an E ride ticket from the late 50s that brought over $200 on Ebay. To each his own I guess. Sue

    Ticket books are a very good collectable. I have many.
