    How Old Are You?

    As I've perused these forums I've often wondered to myself... "Am I the oldest person here?" Then I've seen folks say something about when they first went to Disney and realized... "Nope but darn close!"

    So... how old are you now and how old were you when you made your first trip to Disney? Let's see who went to Disney first! LOL!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Well, I'm not comfortable discussing my age, but I was about 7 months old when I first went to Disney. I have been going 2-3 times a year since then!

    Let me rephrase this since it seems folks don't wanna tell their actual age... how about... in what year did you first visit Disney? Is there anyone who went the year MK opened?

    Yeah, okay, well when I was 7 months old Disney didn't exist. Men still walked hunched over and dino steak was good eating.

    If you want more of a response, maybe an anonymous poll will get people to answer?

    Although after being here awhile, you just get a sense of everyone's age...or at least their age range.

    WDW opened before I was born, but I have been 29 a few times now. That should give you a pretty accurate guess as to how old I really am, although I think I ratted myself out on here once before.

    I'm old enough to know better and young enough not to care.

    My first trip to WDW was 1981.

    To those of you shy about your age...keep in mind that like so many things, we ladies only get better with age!!

    Chronologically 40, mentally ?? FIrst time I went was in 1990. My parents wouldn't even think of taking us. So now I've been taking my kids so they don't have to wait till they're in their 20s to see Disney.
