I am still not sure if it is truly a memory or just a "memory of what has been told to me" but at the age of 2, we were at DL and peter pan came up to say hi. The movie had just recently been re-released at the local theater so I knew who he was and was thrilled. Then Captain Hook snuck up behind me and scared the bejesus out of me and I screamed and cried. I would not go near ANY park characters for about 1-2 more years!
Getting lost on the way there and being sooo afraid we would never find it!
Then riding the motor boats with my dad...he had me convinced that I was steering them...WHEW...almost hit a few rocks too!! I was only 5 and my brother and I wore matching corduroy outfits...his was short pants and mine was a jumper. ahhh....good times, good times.

Walking back down Main Street after spending my whole third birthday in the park. I was with my grandpa--and, apparently, my parents as well--and I remember seeing candy and toys in the windows of the shops. It was dark, and as we entered the old parking lot--perhaps where Soaring is now--the fireworks show began behind our backs. Kill me for the cliche, but it was magical.
For me - first visit (at least that I recall) 1960 or 61 - age 4 or 5...
I vaguely remember being scared by the Apache dancers at the Indian Village, and seeing the late Jimmie Dodd and the Mousketeers in person at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse...definitely remember the pancakes at Aunt Jemima's and riding both the Disneyland RR, the Mine Train, the subs and Monorail.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
