I remember soft opening for Big Thunder. But wasn't that earlier than 1978 or 79?
Summer of 1967: The original Pirates of the Caribbean. I waited 3 hours in front of the old entrance with a mass of people, just to get to the interior queue. It was worth every minute of the wait.
Indy. I remember waiting until Fantasmic started to get in line the first year. I think we still waited an hour and a half but didn't really notice since they were still giving out the decoder cards.
Only Buena Vista Street and Carsland for me. Went opening day as well. 8 hour way for Radiator Springs Racers.
I was born too late :(
I think mine was the Haunted Mansion, Summer of 1969. Ironically, I was too afraid to go on it, LOL. Too scared for the Matterhorn as well. I was 7 at the time.
My mother just found pictures of a 1966 Disneyland trip with me as a baby in a stroller so, technically, 1966 was the year of It's a Small World, Primeval World(!) and New Orleans Square (as a land with no rides yet).
The first attraction that I remember seeing commercials for before going was Country Bear Jamboree.
Toy Story Midway Mania. Yup, don't get to go that often. Especially growing up, only went 4 times before age 18.
Though Thunder Mountain opened 4 weeks exactly before I was born.
We went to the "New Tomorrowland". I remember going on the Peoplemover first just to look the place over. I was still in elementary school. My dad has pictures somewhere.
Pinocchio's Daring Journey. 1983. I'm too young to remember, though. That's what the story and old timey pics say.
I was born in 1973 - so, although I do not remember it, I was there in 1974 - and America Sings had just opened.
I know I was there around the time Winnie the Pooh opened. lol
Toontown 1993 age 3: It was the only time I've seen people standing in line for anything in Toontown other than Roger Rabbit and the roller coaster.
I went in 1995 when Indiana Jones opened. My parents took us to celebrate their 25th anniversary. I remember the ride being better than it is now and waiting in line forever.
Toon Town was still fairly new when we went on that trip, too. I remember waiting in a very long line to go inside Minnie's house.
