    Well...there's an opening and then there's an opening.

    My guess is that they were at some or all of the Grand Opening, Press Preview, or Cast Family Preview days...all of which happened in September.

    My first visit was in 1969, when there was much construction and land sculpting (and tire burning!) going on. See:

    But I was at the 1971 Grand Opening events in September, as well as the public opening on October 1st too.

    2001, for my honeymoon. Just after 9/11. A little scary to fly over there, but WDW makes you forget very quick!
    It was real fun to caompare DLP ('99), DL ('00) and WDW/MK ('01). With each other in arelatively short period.

    Re: First year you visited WDW?

    first time I was ever in WDW was 1981... I was 7 yrs old at the time, and I drove down with my parents... It was awesome. We stayed at the Contempory, when it was still affordable for everyday families, and I remember from my room, I could see Discovery Bay, and over the tree's the skeleton of Spaceship earth at Epcot. I asked the bellhop who brought our luggage in if that was part of a circus, where the guys ride their motorcycles in there. He said no, it was a new area to WDW, called Epcot. I was excited that they were adding something new, but upset that it wasnt open yet...

    You know its funny, I was 7yrs old, but I remember it so vividly. I remember being in my room with my dad, and we happen to put on some horse race and he said I could pick the winning horse, I would get $5, so I picked a horse that happened to break out from his starting pen, and sure enough, he won. LOL. Lets see, I remember the top of the world restaurant at the contemporary, I got a Shirley Temple. I remember the Maint Street Electrical Light Parade. I remember having pluto sticking my head in his mouth... That crazy dog...

    I remember the fireworks, and I remember going on the indy cars with my mom who got sick from the gas fumes...

    I am sitting here smiling because I cant believe how much of my first trip I remember...

    I love that place, and when I have kids, I cant wait to take them there.
