    What a boring year.
    Happy Birthday DisneyIPresume! I was also born in 1968, October also!!

    Re: what happened in Disneyland the year u were born

    Add me to 1990 list. Its good to be born a few years before a few of my favorite rides closed. Its just sad to go one year and then go the next and have a vague memory of the people mover and the skyway.

    Re: what happened in Disneyland the year u were born

    Thunder Mountain opened 28 days before I was born. It is still my favorite ride.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
