Your First Time

Since Disney World opened to the public on October 1, 1971, I was wondering what year your first visit was and how many times you visited after. As you can seen in my signature I first visited the park in 1978.

My first visit was in 1988. I think I have been there a total of 11 times since then with trip number 13 coming up in a little over 3 weeks. Or it has been 12 times and trip number 14 coming up. I lost count.

Tiggerpenny! I can almost say "DITTO" to your post!! My first trip was also in April 1974 and I was also 9 years old.

I have never visited during Star Wars weekend ... our last trip was November 2011 and our next trip is coming up in a few weeks!

Remember the color coded tickets (I think they also had letters like A-F) for rides and attractions?

oh boy you just brought that back about the colored tickets. I believe you could buy certain packages depending on what you wanted to ride! Thanks for the memories!!
