    Tomorrowland Indy Speedway
    Flight To The Moon (bye)
    America The Beautiful (see ya)

    I have America the beautiful as beginning 11/25/71 and Flight to the moon as beginning 11/24/71. The grand Prix raceway (C ticket)was a beginning attraction, as well as the skyway to fantasyland (D ticket). The tomorrowland terrace (not a ride) was there for eats and such.

    you're right Fastpass, and you're up...from my web site "Since Space Mountain and the Star Jets didn't open until 1974. and the Wedway Peoplemover didn't open until 1975. and according to Disney A to Z, Flight to the Moon didn't open until Dec. 24 1971, America the Beautiful Nov. 25, 1971.If you had wings opened June 5, 1972. The Carousel of Progress was operating,... but not at WDW it was still at Disneyland where it continued to run until Sept. 9, 1973. So in those opening weeks of park operation the Grand Prix Raceway ,and the Skyway to Fantasyland were the only attractions in operation. As far as I'm aware there were no postcards of Tomorrowland on opening day. I don't even think a postcard booklet was done of Tomorrowland at WDW. Since Tomorrowland is the area that has probably changed the most since opening day it's probably the area I'd most like to see pictures of. "

    The oldest steam engine at MK is also the youngest. Name the engine and explain this apparent contradiction. I read this yesterday in the MK Main Street station.

    The "oldest" engine (1916), the Roy O. Disney most likely was purchased/put in use after the other 3

    Right on board, Brian! The other 3 engines were made in 1925 (WE. Dinsey, and Roger Brogee) and 1928 I think (Lilley Belle) and put in service day one of WDW. The oldest made (RO Disney) was made in 1916 and put in service in Dec. 1971, 2 months after WDW opened. Great x-mas gift for the MK the sign says.

    You're up!

    I'm going to go with "alot of workers" and "not nearly as much as if it were built today"
