        Re: If you had a time machine....

        I'd want to visit in the mid 60s to see Walt and to see myself as a toddler with my family back then.

        But I want to visit in the late 60s to see the changing styles of clothes & hair, and to see the new Tomorrowland.

        If you want to see how much change took place in America in the 60s, contrast the best picture winners at the start and end of the decade, both set in New York City: The Apartment and Midnight Cowboy.

          Definitely 1972-1982 to see the original Main Street Electrical Parade, America Sings, America on Parade, The 1977 Mouseketeers at the Tomorrowland Stage and other great stuff before I was born in 1976. Also, to witness Mickey Mouse's 50th Birthday, the revamped MSEP and Disneyland's 25th Anniversary. That era seemed to be a great time to visit DL.

            What about the future? What about visiting multiple eras? Some of the eras as defined had major changes within them (such as 1997 Tomorrowland).

                I guess it depends on how much plutonium you brought with you or if you have Mr. Fusion.

                  For me its not what is in the past, because my first visit to DL was in the early 60's. I am 57 years old and if I had a time machine it would set to 30 to 40 years in the future.

                          I chose 94-04. I know this era is highly regarded as a low point in Disneyland history but it also happens to be the era when some of my favorite Disneyland memories were made.

                            It was a great time at Disney, and I'd go back if I could.

                              Late 50's because I have seen all the others. I'd like to see the park in it's first year.

                                83-93 because that's when my kids were little. Now that they're grown & on their own I would give just about anything for just one more day with them when they were little boys. Add a day at Disneyland to that & I couldn't ask for more!

                                  I chose Disneyland's first year, only because I could only choose one era. . . personally, if I had a choice, I would choose the first year(to see how it all began), 1960-1966 and 1967-1971(I really like the 60s, and would like to see the 1967 Tomorrowland when it was new), 1983-1993(more precisely, 1984-1985. . . those 2 years, Disneyland was like an "escape" for me from everything bad in my life), and 1994-2004(I began my 5 year stint as an AP in 1995, and that summer, the park seemed like my second home. . . also, I moved to Stockton in 2000, and I really enjoyed the last couple years I lived in La Habra. . . )

                                        The surprising (to me) number of people voting for '83-'93 (early Eisner-Wells) might reflect George Will's comment, "The golden age of baseball took place when you were 12." I'm paraphrasing and for Disneyland it might be from age 6 to 10.
