I don't know what dates this ride was open, but I'd love to experience the flying saucers. I'd also like to ride Inner Space and see America Sings again. Brings back good memories when I used to go as a child w/ my parents.

Re: If You Could Go Back In Time...
Well, the first time I went was back in 1987, and I've been going through and scanning all my old photos recently. It seemed like it was a fun time - Brer Bear; Mary Poppins and Merlin wandering around the park. The Subs were still about. Star Tours and Splash Mountain opened that year. The Mark V Monorails opened. Disneyland State Fair. Finally, Disney Dollars were introduced.
It would be great to go back and be able to appreciate all that as an adult. Still, I'd avoid obvious days like the opening, simply because the crowds would detract. It would be nice to go during Walt's era, simply because I think the atmosphere would be different somehow.

I'd go either one of the first few days it opened or i'd go in the early 90's, about 1992, which was the first time my family and I had gone there, and i'd go on everything I never went on because I was too small or one of my brothers were afraid to go on it. Plus, i'd go on the subs, which I really wanted to go on, but my mom and dad didn't feel comfortable in small spaces, plus having the three of us kids there was hard enough on them. I would also leave my mark on something I know they didn't change so that when I go back the next time i'll see my mark.

...and spend a day at Disneyland at any time in it's history prior to today, what day/period of time might you choose and why? Maybe it's the park opening, the arrival of several new attractions, but still some classic oldies that don't exist now, reliving a favorite time there, etc.
I'd have a tough time deciding, but I think I'd have to go with sometime in the first couple of months of DL's opening. I'd be fascinated to see the park in person in it's earliest days with many attractions that are no longer there. Maybe not the first day (crowds and gooey asphalt and all), but a very early day in the life of the park would be very interesting indeed.
its kind of funny to here what people would like to go back in time and ride at DL., but remember this DL is better now than its ever beenI sttred to go to DL in the late 50's. There only 2 things in DL now that are not as good as what they replaced. That would be Poop Bear, and best Buy.

With the couple of mentions of meeting Walt, it makes me think it might be fun to go back and spend a day at the park, then meet Walt and outline all the changes that are to come and see if he starts spinning in real life or simply has a few suggestions for enhancements instead.

I would have to say..December, 1985 that was the month I won my Firebird during the 35th Anniversary (I think it was) celebration but i wouldnt take the car, I would have taken the cash option instead, as the car later turned out to be a piece of crap...(but fun never the less)
