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

    I'd go back during July 17th 1955, Disneyland 59', or during the POTC: 2 Premiere.

    Yes! It would be cool to pick a spot in the park now, press the magic back in time button, and see where you'd end up. Hmm, the magic back in time machine would need a "don't rematerialize in a tree" subroutine...

    I don't mean this as a dig at DCA, but my last visit there I seriously found myself going back in my mind to where I was in the parking lot.

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

    I'd have to go with right around 1970. Those were the years my family made an annual summer trip to Disneyland (from Seattle). Tomorrowland was great, New Orleans Square had just reached it's completion, Keel Boats, Skyway...
    I also agree with the "meet Walt" crowd, but honestly, by the time the park was open I think he was too big a celebrity to spend that much time chatting with John Q. Public, so I'd rather go with a few years after his death, when (ironically) I think Disneyland was at its peak. (Can you say "run-on sentence," boys and girls?)

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

    Does DCA count? If so, one of the moments I'd like to go back in time and do is go to DCA's opening day and be one of the lucky guests that got the lifetime pass to the park. That way I'd have no room to complain about things at that park. LOL

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

    this post is part on topic, and part off topic


    first the part:

    I would go back in time about 20 years ago and warn my past self NOT TO SCREW UP MY CREDIT>

    and now the on topic part:

    I agree with common consensus: I would like to go back to 1955 and be at the opening day

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

    Going to show off my geekness:
    There's an episode of Star Trek DS9 when they travel back thru time to Kirk's days (aka the original series) and Sisco says there's one last thing he just HAS to do, and that is hand over a report to Capt Kirk...

    Replace Sisco with me, the Enterprise with Disneyland and Kirk with Walt (and just to be on the safe side... let's make it good news).

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

    I would like to go back to the 1960's, when my mother, prior to her death, took me to DL for the first time. I want to ride IASW with her and be with her again, as a child.

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

    something else I would do, I would go back in time to 1959 and meet up with my dad and convince him to buy shares of disney stock. I also would go back in time to 1975 and convince him to transfer half of his shares of disney stock to me.

    regarding the park, I would go back in time to the 80's shortly before eisner took command, control, whatever you call it, and give him a list of things NOT to do to the company:

    1)Do not build theme parks on the cheap(hint: dca)
    2) leave tomorrowland THE WAY IT IS (except for star tours, honey I shrunk the audience, and leave the two autopias separate attractions)
    3) do not close the sky way, people mover.
    4) leave the monorail as is, using the full run of the track (both ways)
    5) purchase land in anaheim AROUND THE EXISTING DISNEYLAND PARKING LOT, rather than build dca ON THE DISNEYLAND PARKING LOT.
    6) do not shut down the original stage show at the golden horseshoe.

    -Meet Walt Disney and take a picture with him

    -Opening day July 18th and Press day-July 17th, 1955,

    I would love to go back to the time when Disney filmed -Date Night At Disneyland. Also would have loved the chance to be on the Mark Twain when Louis Armstrong was playing!
