Yep, some of us geezers were actually born before DL opened in July 1955.
Actually DL was the third best thing that happened that year. #1 - the polio vaccine. #2 - Rosa Parks deciding she was not going to give up her seat on that Montgomery bus.
When were you born, fellow older than Disneyland person? (I'm May '55). What cool/important events do you remember from your earliest years?
(I said it was a silly post - at least this one isn't likely to get merged with a similar thread)
