    Do any of you guys who went in the first few years have any photos? I`m desparate for a few specific items from Tomorrowland and Adventureland / Frontierland;

    Tland with no CoP / Star Jets / WEDWay

    The end of Adventureland just past The Tropical Serenade

    The open air walkway between Adventureland and Frontierland

    The End of Frontierland before you could walk to Caribbean Plaza

    and if anyone has any from a year or two later;

    PotC under construction

    WEDWay / Starjets / CoP under construction

    Thanks. Here`s hoping!

    We were all so excited. Every Sunday evening we'd all watch the Wonderful World of Disney and we just loved the old Gulf gasoline commercials they played during the show. You know, they were encouraging you to drive to Florida and see the 'magic'!

    We entered the park and we made a beeline for the HM, but there was a CM out front telling us it was closed! We were devastated. We wanted this to be our first attraction!

    So we headed over to Frontierland and rode the Davy Crockett Explorer canoes!

    Remember it like it was yesterday! Bright, hot, humid Florida day. Early morning, paddling my little arms off while racing another canoe!

    Since then I can proudly say that I have been able to ride almost every single ride ever at Disney, with the exception of the short lived Swan Boats and the Discovery River Boats at DAK.

    This was my first ever Disney ride!

    Who else wants to share???
    I remember my first trip to WDW it was in 73' and had the time of my life. I'd been given the keys to her dads new car and over 50$ spending money, we were on top of the world trying to see as much of the theme park as we could.

    Re: I Remember...

    My first trip to disney was in 2001. We left our house on September 17 2001... we were suppose to fly ( that was not going to happen). I remember being like the only ones in the park so we did not have to wait in many lines.So my first WDW attraction I think was Buzz lightyear space spin. We rode like 5 times in a row then went to Space Mountain. I wish I can remember more of that trip it was only 8 years ago and all you people are telling stores for the 70's.

    Hahaha...yeah I see what you mean but to be honest at the time I was in love and although the park was packed "mid July" like you I felt like we were the only ones in the park as well. Funny how the mind works and what you actually do remember or at least your interpretation. All I know is no matter how old I was when I've been there it has certainly been magical. Not that I feel it but truth be known I am an old man now and still get that feeling by seeing theme parks like this through the eyes of my little girl who is 20 months old and my stepson that just turned 14 yrs.

    My first memory of WDW was "If You Had Wings" with the traffic cop directing the flamingos and the cars. I thought that was hysterical!

    Re: I Remember...

    My favorite memory was probably my first and last ride on AT&T's Spaceship Earth. I was pretty much awe-struck, and I think that's the first time I realized how much I loved Disney.
    The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!
