    Re: If you could go back in time...

    Opening day for HM or POTC, I suppose. Or, the day I rode POTC 19 times (non-consecutively)...wait a minute, no...not that day. Nevermind. The opening day thing...yeah.

    Re: If you could go back in time...

    There are so many things that I would love to go back and see.

    Firstly, I'd love to go back and be able to see Walt walking through the park, talking to people and inspecting things.

    Secondly, I'd love to go back to a time when it wasn't overly crowded and you could approach characters without having to stand in line.

    Thirdly, I'd love to go back to every first that I've had with my daughters in the park and being able to see the same reaction in them that I have.

    And I almost forgot... Country Bear Jamboree. *sigh*

    I would go back to 1953, and buy up a bunch of land on Harbor blvd and other areas where DL would be built, Then I would go to Walt and say How would like a new partner for Disney!

    Probably the late eighties when I was growing up. When everything was about Splash Mountain, Roger Rabbit and Ducktales.

    Disneyland of the late 80's early 90's. Does anyone remember when you used to be able to go to Disneyland in the off season for $21?

    Re: If you could go back in time...

    Anytime when Walt was still alive walking around in his dream come true so I could have met him in person.

    I'd also like to go back in time when I went to Disneyland for the first time as a baby and see myself and what I was doing. Would be interesting to do that.

    I agree with you. Just to meet the man who made this all possible would actually have been a dream come true.

    Re: If you could go back in time...

    I'd like to relive Disneyland with my parents and sisters in 1970, my first trip, and feel what it was like to be 3 again, no cares in the world!

    I'd also like to peek in at WED when the '64 fair was in the works. Wouldn't it be fun to see when they first discovered Audio-animatronics???

    Same as above.

    I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during the period when Walt and his team were creating the shows for the 1964 New York World's Fair.

    Re: If you could go back in time...

    I would like to go back to 1977 when I started as a cast member at Riverbelle Terrace, freshly out of high school and do things differently and stayed longer with the company back then.

    Re: If you could go back in time...

    I was there opening weekend of Indy, and it was pretty fun, but nothing uber spectacular. There was a small jazz band playing classic swing numbers and taking requests on the roof of the Jungle Cruise building, so that was fun. The line was a couple of hours, not too bad, the ride itself looked great except the cars were so jerky you literally felt like you were going to get thrown out (it was scary! seriously!) and there were no seatbelts. Plus they had that annoying AT&T ad over the exit, but somewhere I do have one of those code cards stashed in my stuff so that was cool.

    I'd go back to somewhere in the 1960s when Tomorrowland was at its zenith, Walt roamed the park, and people still had common sense & manners. And yeah, I'd just sit and listen to him talk about his ideas too...

    The first day of Pirates. Would love to see the reactions of the riders afterwards, to something they hadn't seen or contemplated before.

    Other than THE Opening Day itself, most of the other rides aren't big leaps conceptually from what folks were acquainted with at the time. I think Pirates was a big leap for those lucky first visitors.
