    Re: If you had a time machine....

    83-93 because that's when my kids were little. Now that they're grown & on their own I would give just about anything for just one more day with them when they were little boys. Add a day at Disneyland to that & I couldn't ask for more!

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    I chose Disneyland's first year, only because I could only choose one era. . . personally, if I had a choice, I would choose the first year(to see how it all began), 1960-1966 and 1967-1971(I really like the 60s, and would like to see the 1967 Tomorrowland when it was new), 1983-1993(more precisely, 1984-1985. . . those 2 years, Disneyland was like an "escape" for me from everything bad in my life), and 1994-2004(I began my 5 year stint as an AP in 1995, and that summer, the park seemed like my second home. . . also, I moved to Stockton in 2000, and I really enjoyed the last couple years I lived in La Habra. . . )

    The surprising (to me) number of people voting for '83-'93 (early Eisner-Wells) might reflect George Will's comment, "The golden age of baseball took place when you were 12." I'm paraphrasing and for Disneyland it might be from age 6 to 10.

    My time machine will fit right in at Tomorrowland '67 when I get there.

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    A lot of votes for Tomorrowland 67 - but as for me, i am more curious to see the Original Tomorrowland. I saw the new Tomorrowland in the 70's when i was little, but never saw the original.

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    I voted for '72-'82. Having seen it as a girl, I'd love to experience the same thing as a woman.

    I honestly, for whatever reason or defect of memory, do not recall old Fantasyland! I would take so many pictures and eat at the pirate ship restaurant. I would ride the Motorboat Cruise and pretend to be scared at the rapids. I would walk into it's a small world down the stairs properly, like it was designed.

    I would want to see Tomorrowland back in it's glory days when it bustled with energy and life. I would go on America Sings over and over and over. I would ride Peoplemover endlessly. I would wait patiently for the elevator up to the Rocket Jets. I would freak out at the giant eye staring at me in Adventures in Inner Space.

    I would want to visit the One of A Kind shop in New Orleans Square. I would enjoy the quiet, eerie, and dark caves in Pirates of the Caribbean. I would laugh at the buxom wench chasing the pirate not because he has her food, but because he was a man! I would enjoy the pop-up ghost in the attic of the Haunted Mansion. I would enjoy quiet, uncrowded evenings on the Rivers of America, with dinner at the Riverbelle Terrace.

    I would ride the Mark Twain and take dozens of pictures of Cascade Peak. I would laugh at the original Golden Horseshoe Revue.

    I would spend endless nights in the Tahitian Terrace. I would sit through the entire Enchanted Tiki Room show, boring Offenbach number and everything.

    I would walk up and down Main Street, USA, and enjoy the ever-changing maquette displays showing recently-released and up-and-coming Disney films. I would finally buy that custom-made watch. I would take my husband swing dancing on a Saturday night. I would take pictures of the Hub, pre-Partners statue, since I honestly don't recall it!

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    I'd probably go back to 1985, the year of the 30th anniversary and the very year that I was born. Or maybe I'd go to 1990, the year of the 35th anniversary.
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    I voted 72-82. My first visit was in 1985 (and my last was 1989), so I'd like to go back to that time period that's just before then.

    I used to have a t-shirt from that anniversary. I'd love to know what happened to it.

    This. What a beautiful reply. I never experienced any of this, but have always dreamed of what it would have been like to visit during these days of the park. So many sights to see and stories that I would have loved to experience in person. Ideally, I'd travel between '67 to see the New Tomorrowland, but before '77, since I would definitely want to ride Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.

    I voted for the first year. Specifically, I'd want to be there opening day and see Walt. Any day that Walt would be in the park would be perfect for me.

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    I would pick 1966-1970.
    You could buy a main gate admission on a summer evening for something like $3.50 - $5, and see some amazing entertainment. Tina & The Mustangs at the Tomorrowland Stage, and Count Basie or Buddy Rich or any number of legendary Big Bands at Plaza Gardens. I played in the Christmas Parade in '69 - '71 when each unit in the parade had a live band. No recorded music. We also had the Mine Train, The Golden Horseshoe Review, Tahitian Terrace and Flight to the Moon.

    Re: If you had a time machine....

    72- 82. It was kind of a nice time in my life, and very busy. College, first job, career planning and not too many Disneyland visits. Would like to visit and see what I missed.
