              Yeah, probably- well, what is your favorite? Maybe that will set a better example for what you had in mind.

                I get what you are saying I gotta say the New Orleans time period because it reminds me so much of the time of some of my favorite authors. Actually my favorite authors came after that but none-the-less. The 1800s was a wonderful time. Julies Verne, H.G. Wells, Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Connan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling, J.M. Barrie, Mary Shelly, Bram Stoker, and last but not least Lewis Carroll

                My point is that these authors all generally exsisted during the 1800's and those stories are the basis and framework for Disney classics and inspirations for the parks...So there is my answer Dirton hope it satisfied the point and direction of your question.

                  As a child I used to love TL, Now as an adult (for lack of a better description) I find myself spending more and more time in NOS just hanging out taking in the sights and sounds it is a wonderful place to just relax and veg a bit.

                    I love the 1930's theme. I wish they could incorporate it more. I love the classy feel that adventureland offers. It's very similar to the TOT.

                            After careful consideration I would have to agree that NOS is at the top of my list. The views towards the river with the MT passing by just can't be beat for ambience and total immersion, especially late afternoon and early evening.

                            The theming in the courtyards and on the buildings is superb and that, combined with the RR Station and HM makes for a total experience. The place seems to be dripping with more period nostalgia than any other area in the park. It's also a nice complement to FL. I was at the ribbon cutting for NOS and remember the mayor of NO saying it looked just like home and Walt quipped, "Yes, but it's much cleaner!"

                                    I think I like the period in Tomorrowland when it was geared towards the futre after Disneyland first opened. The thought of something that new and exciting had to have been something pretty amazing to look forward to. I know I wasn't there and never got to experience it, but just knowing that a piece of history was forming would have just blown my mind.

                                      My favorite time period portrayed by Disneyland, even though it's so horribly portrayed nowadays, is Tomorrow.

                                      Much as I love the charm and nostalgia and beauty of the historic time periods presented, there was always something about the excitement of the future which I loved as a child and which has always stayed with me. It's such a shame that my favorite land of Tomorrow has met such an ignoble fate.

                                      * * * * *

                                      As for my favorite Disneyland Time Period (which is what I thought this thread would be about just from reading the title), I want to purposefully go off topic to declare that 1977 was the best time for Disneyland. It was that magic year when Walt's work was finally complete (Space Mountain opening in '77) and just before they started to demolish Walt's work with the demise of Nature's Wonderland (Big Thunder opened in '78).

                                      For one brief, shining year - Disneyland was just as Walt Disney wanted it. It was glorious and it's never been better.

                                        Yeah, New Tomorrowland captured an interesting vision of a very particular time. I mean, let's face it, it wasn't long after Disneyland had its daily operating Monorail that the same basic technology was a centerpiece of Seattle's "Century 21" concept. Tomorrowland in those days definitely had the feel of Tomorrowland 2055. It was just aroiund the corner, it was science-factual, and it was attainable. An incredibly detailed vision of a time period that hasn't even happened yet.

                                        Otherwise, I love the timeframe represented when you sit in the Hungry Bear and look out over RoA, largely because it's a time without time. If you tune out the pesky children and their often peskier parents, you can really get caught up in something like Einstein's explanation of time as a river with many bends. It can truly feel like you are looking out at an unblemished frontier, experience the newness of the land. I think I would like going back to that time and exploring that way of life, but Disneyland does a great job of simulating it.
