Calling all lurkers! Do you have stalker level knowledge of your favorite MWers but your user name has never hit the Lounge? This is the post for you! Our get to know our lurkers question of the day is: What year was your first visit to Disneyland? Estimations or generalities are allowed for those who can't remember or don't want to show their age. Ready go!

Haha love this post! I try not to lurk but I don't go often enough to have much to add. I just have a passion for Disney and require a Disney supplement to sooth my "ears" shaped heart. I truly enjoy seeing all of the fabulous photos. My first trip 1987 (2 months old). Thanks all of you "regulars" for keeping us all updated! - RaisedByWalt  131.7 #3018 4:03PM
I've been coming since the beginning (I was 4 in 1955). Don't mind showing my age ξŒƒ - debbiev  1170.7 #151 3:34PM
I bet you have some Amazing stories!! - Pintraderswife  468.3 #461 3:36PM
How awesome to have been able to see the park in it's beginning and through all of it's glorious transformations. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 3:36PM
My parents are both that way as well. They both went as young children within the first week of the park opening. They have been going ever since. My mom still comes to the park with us. Now we take 3 generations to share together. - AKMouse  490.6 #434 3:37PM
That's wonderful!!! How special to be a first generation Disneyland'er!! You grew up right along with the Happiest Place on Earth!! - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #470 3:53PM
Never thought about it, but I guess I am a first gen D-lander! I've had lots of fun here - debbiev  1170.7 #151 4:55PM

I believe my first visit was in 1986 when I was 3. I went with my parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and my baby sister who was just months old. We repeated this trip with my daughter when she was 3 😊 - TMMBBW  24.8 #6561 4:25PM

1982 I was 10. Dad moved to CA from TX, we would come on all school vacations. - MeridasHair  346.5 #687 7:16PM
I went as a baby/toddler in the late 70s.. but the first trip I REMEMBER I was about 4 or 5, so that would be 81-82ish.  Though I liked Disneyland as a kid, I must say that my love/addiction grows the older I get! - DaisyDork  198.7 #2006 7:29PM
I was born in April 1985, first trip was May 1985. - sewinlove  21.5 #7066 7:42PM
I like to watch MW meetups from a distance. - chris.  2511.4 #57 7:44PM
We used to live in California when I was a kid and would go once a year. I built my love for Disneyland when I was little like so many MW'ers. Thanks so much for posting this. I don't know what I'd do without this app! I love all of the live pics. Keeps me close to Disneyland at heart :-) (I now live in Arizona) - MrsDisneylandDreamin  5.9 #16214 7:45PM
would love to see some photo's from everyone that has been going since the opening!  - PrincessLani  111.3 #3409 8:45PM
I really wish I had some of my Mom's pictures. I wanted to post them for retro day. - AKMouse  490.6 #434 9:10PM
That's me...a total lurker so I can get my daily Disney fix on MW :) My first trip was back in '78 when I was little baby. - DisLUVney  632.6 #320 9:51PM
