    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    I don't know exactly but around two-years old...about 1975. We went a lot when I was very small. Probably nearly 20 times before I was 10. But I just went to WDW for the first time about two weeks ago.

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    My first time was when my family went on vacation in 1993-94 (end of year) when I was 5 and we lived in New Jersey. I'm 18 now and still remember some of my first trip to Disneyland. What I remember specifically: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Matterhorn, Autopia, Subs, Pirates, and walking to the exit through Fantasyland at the end of the day. I'm sure we must have done other "gentler" things too, since I would have had siblings at ages 3, 2, and <1 and I was 5, but I just remember those. Almost a year after coming down here on vacation, we moved to Fullerton in 1994, when I was 6. A little later, we all got APs and my Mom would take us to the park after school fairly often. Those were the days... I haven't had an AP in many, many years and had only been to the park a few times in the last few years before working there.

    And well you should be proud, Mr. Chaney...

    My first visit, according to my mother, was when I was three years old, sometime in either 1959 or 1960.

    I remember being frightened by the Indians in the old Indian Village.

    I remember seeing Jimmie Dodd in the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

    And I remember eating pancakes at Aunt Jemima's.

    And wearing a little sailor's suit that everyone said I looked so cute in (gag me)

    Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?

    3 years old during the 35th anniversary. I think, I'm not positive though.

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    I was a little 8 yr old kid, and I remember the date clearly. August 16, 1977.

    I only remember because we arrived in DL to see the headlines announcing Elvis had died.

    My poor Mom was a huge Elvis fan and she had to deal with kids who wanted to play when she wanted to cry

    1966 when I was 6 years old. Only really remember the Pack Mules. Loved them! Miss them!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    I was around 3 and newly potty trained. My grandma "kidnapped" me for the day and took me as a reward! She had me call my mom after we got there and my mom was like "What????? You're where?"
    A signature should go here.

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    My first visit to Disneyland I was at an NFFC convention. The trip inside the park was on July 17th and we were on a foot rally... with questions like where can you find this number discreetly displayed in the park "9265478"... the only ride I got to go on was BTMM... but we came in 2nd place.

    Should I have known I would become an addict after that?

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    Growing up in the midwest, I never got to either DL or WDW. Then moved to AZ and immediately went to college for 5 years so couldn't afford a trip. Wasn't till I was 25 and out of college that I finally made it to DL, been making up for lost time ever since!

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    I can't remember exactly how old I was on my first few trips, but we used to go to Hughes Aircraft night, back when the park closed at 6 p.m. in the off season. The parents would always make me, my brother and my sister take a nap in the afternoon so that we could stay awake until midnight. The naps were of limited success due to the fact that the three of us were always too excited to sleep!

    But, because we always went at night, I had a surreal perception of what Disneyland was really like because I never saw it during the day. So, when we went on Pirates, or Haunted Mansion or any of the other dark rides, I never had a good sense of whether we were in a building or not.

    Good magic.

    Re: Your First Disneyland Visit

    I used to live in the condos across the street from Disneyland Hotel (back in the 80s when there was only one hotel). We used to visit the park all the time and I'm not sure when my first visit was but I found a picture of my mom and I in Disneyland and I'm about 1 year old so I'm going to say newborn-1!

    Here's the picture!


    We're in front of the Rivers of America.... and yes that is my Aunt's thumb blocking the bottom left of the shot!
