E-Tickets are currency in Epic Mickey. Mickey can hold as many as 1,000 tickets in the beginning of playing the game; as the game progresses, collecting film reels may increase the number of tickets Mickey can hold if you talk to the usher on Mean Street. In addition, Mickey can purchase an upgrade for a wallet to hold more E-tickets in various shops found in Wasteland; particularly the Mean Street shop. For a fully upgraded wallet, Mickey can hold no more than 3,000 E-Tickets. E-Tickets are used as currency to purchase various items, such as upgrades for health and paint, and to purchase extra content and missed robotic parts of Donald, Daisy, and Goofy if not found in the various worlds. E-Tickets are also used as currency for Mickey to use with interactive characters to help him along the way. Gremlins and other characters may offer assistance with quests to buy items Mickey may need (such as a flower for Clarabelle's missing flower, and aiding Mickey to stop a whirlpool when raising the fire bridge). E-tickets can be found by thinning out areas (such as walls and buildings) where they might hide, or by using the spin move to break open boxes, crates, barrels, lamp posts and even green flora plants within the various worlds. There are four types of E-Tickets of varying colors: red (worth 1), white (worth 10), green (worth 50), and gold (worth 100).
E-Tickets are a reference to the currency used at the Disney theme parks when they first opened. Instead of using one pass for everything, visitors would use A, B, C, D, and E-tickets. E-Tickets were for the "best" stuff, like for the Haunted Mansion or It's a Small World.
