What does it mean when you dream about a ticket?

Having a ticket gives us a right to enter everything from a theater to an airplane. So tickets in a dream could represent a sense of entitlement. A dream could also be drawing on the meaning of a ticket idiom, such as a “meal ticket,” a “big ticket” item, or a “one-way ticket.”
