That's what we had! And it was easy to see if you had any days left. We had one day left from a pass back in 1987-used that last day in 2003.

I never did any hopping until I got an annual pass. My first trip, only the MK existed and it was on the A-E ticket system per ride. By the time I made it to Epcot, there were only the two parks, but I only went to EP, so, again, only the one ticket. In the early 90s, before figuring out (or maybe before such a thing existed) that an AP would be a better deal, we got day tickets on the day we got an itch to hit a park; those were definitely one-day, one-park tickets. Once I went AP, I lost track of any other other ticketing system, lol!

Remember both the hand stamp and the tickets they stamped at the bottom each day you used them.

And if you'd been there a week and done lots of hand stamping, your hand may look a little weird with all the stamps (depending on how much swimming, hand washing you'd done. Because for all those years, the very last thing I did was be sure to get my hand stamped as I left the last park for the last time. That way, if our flight got cancelled at the airport, we could make a beeline back to WDW and the parks. But in all those years (when did that stop, about 10-12 years ago?), our flight was never cancelled.

Come to California! We still get hand stamps as Disneyland.

Haven't ever been to Dl...yet. I am surprised though that they stipp hand stamp. I am surprised it isn't' thought of as out dated. I remember the hand stamp at WDW seems like every trip leaving MK someone in the family mentions that they remember getting their hand stamped.

Although I didn't visit WDW until I was an adult, we had the hand stamp at Disneyland. I remember being a kid and getting VERY nervous awaiting the hand stamp. My dad grew up practically within walking distance of DL and never cared for it. My mom was the Disney fanatic. So I was always nervous when we would leave the park around 4pm. A hand stamp meant we were coming back that day. No stamp meant dad was done.

We still have our Super Duper Passes that we had on our honeymoon back in 1992. And yes...we did go to the parks and did get our tickets stamped everyday.

Am I remembering this correctly...were the hand stamps in regular ink back in those days? It seems like it changed to the invisible ink later.
