Looking around on these boards, I've come to think that we may have a bit of a generation gap here at Mice Chat.
Many of us "old timers" have posted or started threads calling for Disney to "bring back this" or "restore that". We maintain that something has been lost at the Park; that the themeing was better, the CM's more helpful, and the experience more immersive way back when. As a result we are often called reactionary, or against change. We are reminded ad-nauseum that Disneyland is not a museum.
Could it be that we are actually looking at the past through rose colored glasses? Is it just nostalgia for our lost childhoods that make us pine for Disneyland the way it used to be? Or is it that we have experienced both the then and the now of Disneyland and have the capacity to actually measure the difference?
I don't wish to be divisive and I'm not trolling for an argument here, but I would really like everyone's thoughts on this. My only request is that responders to this thread begin there first post with the year that they first experienced Disneyland.
For me it was 1965.
