  • What year was your first visit?

    My first visit to Disneyland was summer 1973. I was six years old and all I can remember of the trip is that the taller costumed characters -- Br'er Bear, J. Worthington Foulfellow, et al. -- scared the living hell out of me.

        My first visit was the spring of 74!

        The first visit I remember was the summer of 76, and I only remember getting a necklace. That's all I remember.

            Mine was in 1981. I was two and don't remember squat. The first one I remember was... probably 1983... i think. I remember being scared to death of just about everything, and my dad forcing me to go on everything we could. no kiddie rides for us thank you very much. I was tall and could ride EVERYTHING even though I didn't want to. He made me and now I'm glad he did. Now no ride or other scary stunt (like bungee jumping for example) scares me bad enough not to do it.

              1955. I was five and remember very little.

                Summer of '76, I was almost 9. I remember being afraid to go on HM. Those gigantic headed characters in America on Parade freaked me out a little too. I wouldn't eat at the pirate ship in Fantasyland because if had tuna - yuck! The inside of Matterhorn was all open and had silver lined insulation all over.

                    I have no idea. I know I must have been VERY small though, because I still remember things like Motorboat Cruise pre-Gummies, Star Tours soft opening, etc.

                    So my guess would be that I was probably to DL at least once (probably more, like annually) in the 70's. Definitely annually in the 80's.

                    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                      Mine was 1970ish...yeah, I'm old! Never wanted to leave, even when I was asleep in my Dad's arms! I loved the old pirate ship and had to have a tuna sandwich everyday...we also loved the Welches grape juice stand in had a mural from Fantasia on the back wall and I always wanted it painted in my room! :gladsad:

                          July of 1967 - 4 years old

                          I remember Jungle Cruise, Pirates and RR to Natures Wonderland most vividly. I came home with a giant map - I have been hooked ever since!

                            I was born in '67, so first trip was probably '68 or '69. FIrst trips I have memories of were like '71, '72 when I was 4-5ish. Then couple times a year pretty much every year after that until '89 when the U.S. Navy sent me to live in Hawaii for 4 years.... then I moved to Colorado for a decade in which I only visited 3 times.

                            First trip to WDW was '78 when it was just MK, lots of hotels and a VERY long monorail ride.
