    I was there opening day of......

    So what's your story? What Disneyland attractions did you experience on opening day?

    How long did you wait, who were you with, any interesting tidbits from the experience?

    I wasn't there at the opening of Toontown but I was there on the opening day of RRCS. Funny thing was I rode RRCS the day before official opening. The car I was in wasn't spinning. I told the CM and the next day, (official opening day and same Cm) told me that I saved opening day and the ride was fixed.

    Oh, and I was there on the first night of Fantasmic! Of courseI was in awe.

    Not opening day, but I did happen to visit during soft openings of Star Tours. Didn't have to wait in any line at all.

    Even as a 10 year old it was extremely underwhelming.

    I was there (3rd in line until this guy brought his group of like 12 he was holding a place for) for the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough. How long did I wait, 8 years man... or 2.5 hours in line, although I was at the front so I don't know technically when the line "started"

    Small World refurbed version- bleh. Not special.

    Yeah, I thinks that's it

    I was at the opening for the updated Pirates. Was really astonished by the lineup the first day for it. I got to the park at 8 and the line was already at Emporium on Main Street. My family and I scoped out the line when we were heading for HM and saw that not only was it long, it was winding. There were numerous mazes. Funny thing is, when we got to ride it at like 9:00 right before the fireworks, the ride broke down when we were at the part where you hear the slow banjo song. Let me tell you, 45 min. with that song will drive you mad.

    I was there opening day of TSMM, and I was leaving the park when the line was forming (cause I was at the press event)... Man that line was looong.

    I was at the Castle Walkthrough reopening. Waited about an hour and walked through in 10 minutes. If not for the nostalgia of walking through the castle, I wouldn't have been in that line.
