    What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    If you had a time machine, and could visit Disneyland in any year you wanted, what year would you choose and why? I would pick 1975. That way I could see America Sings again, see the original Fantasyland, ride Nature's Wonderland, see the original Golden Horseshoe, the Country Bear Jamboree, Adventure through Inner Space, and watch America on Parade.

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    If I could go any where and time... I would go to every major event held at Disneyland... One of the things that I have always loved about Disney is the history...

    Even though opening day was a nightmare, I'd still love to be there.

    Or I'd just love to be in the park anytime Walt was basically.

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    I'd like to have been there in 2005 for the 50th Anniversary.
    I'd also like to have been there in 1959 for the opening of the Matterhorn!

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    Can I go to multiple times?

    July 17, 1955. I'd love the witness Walt's opening day speech.

    July 17, 2005. I was going to go this day, but sadly I missed it.

    July 17, 2055. Take how great the 50th was, and double it. I wanna be there.

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    Probably 1956 or 1957, with everything original but most of the first year kinks worked out. A close second would probably be just before 1966/67 so I could see the park without NOS and the 1967 version of the new Tomorrowland.

    Incidentally, this brings up an idea hopefully Datameister or some other creative people will do: build renderings of the park as they were in history: especially 1955-58, 1959-1966, etc.

    Guess I'm lucky because I worked there that year, and got to see all of those things. Of course, we don't seem to know what we have, until we've lost it. 1975 marked the beginning of Space Mountain's construction - a real boon to our morale in the midst of a recession and sagging attendance at the time.

    I'd pick 1967 - so I could relive the thrill of riding Pirates and seeing the new Tomorrowland - and kissing my 12-year old "date" as our Skyway bucket passed through the Matterhorn. What memories.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    I can't believe I'm the first person to suggest this, but I want to go to 2013 and see what's become of DCA.

    Going in the other direction, I'd like to go back to 1997, when I was a teenager, and revisit the days of us spooky, death-rock and post-punk kids meeting up each Friday night and hanging out at what we then called "chowder" and going on anonymous makeout sessions in the Mack-Shack (aka Haunted Mansion).

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    I would like to go back to 1959 when the Monorail, Submarine Voyage, and Matterhorn debuted in Disneyland... and also to July 17, 2005 for the 50th celebration

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    Great question! Honestly, if I had a time machine, I'd want to visit Disneyland again and again for every single new addition. I'm not even joking--I'd do it without hesitation. However, I guess the 1975 visit would be a nice "happy medium" between the present and the unfamiliar underwhelmingness of the park in 1955. But given the chance to go a few times, I'd go first in 1960, then in '75, then on June 2, 1992--the date of my very first trip to the park. I know, I know. I'm a newcomer compared to some of y'all.

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    good thread!

    In the past? 1959, on the opening day of the first E tickets ...and probably 1977 to experience Space Mountian opening

    future?
    see the opening of a new Tomorrowland(whenever that will be) and may this year, to see the blue and red monorail and the innoventions dream house

    Re: What year do you want to go to Disneyland?

    I don't know I have memories going back to 1965 and have been in the park every year since. Honestly I couldn't pick one time, rather I would like the impossible like the Mine train and BTMRR at the same time. Skull Rock in the Fantasyland remodel.
