    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.

    Thank you Poisonedapples for my my my signature!!!

    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.

    Re: What's the oldest ride at Disneyland that you were there for the year that it ope

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
