✨RAK✨ iPhone 4 or 4S case and cute Mickey ear buds with pouch. Since this is a year of my firsts, please tell me about your first memory of Disneyland and how old you where. Must have 25 MW points and have DM enabled. US only. I was 6 years old when my Gramma took all of us grand kids during Easter. We stayed at the DLRH with joining rooms. A memory I hope I never lose. OK! RAK ends Friday at noon. GOOD LUCK!!!

please add me for evil jules , my first memory i was about 7 yrs and growing up in a poor home so Disneyland was out of reach for our family. My 5th grade teacher Ms.House had a contest in class and three winners would get to go with her to Disneyland. well it was an essay about your favorite cartoon, memory ,and the class voted for the top three and I won, could it be cause I wrote about chip n dales rescue rangers.I had a wonderful time even though it was a short trip and yes it was a different time where people could be trusted a little more but i had a great time - pikarich  5227.7 #22 9:34AM

What an incredible RAK! Please add me! My earliest memory of Disneyland was when I was seven months old and my mom held me up on King Arthur's carousel. I remember Loving it, and that feeling has stuck with me ever since. Whenever I go to Disneyland I always ride the carousel and think of my mom. Even though she can't always be with me there in person she's always there with me in spirit, and I think that is really what Disney magic is all about! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 9:31PM
What a beautiful memory!! 😢 I have many very happy memories of trips with my mom too, that I hold on too. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 11:22PM
Please add me for DisneyDavidEMT. My first memory of Disneyland was trying to figure out what the ticket book was for and then what rides I wanted to use them for. Really did not matter since my father picked which rides we were going on lol. I was about 6 or 7. - friendlymouse  727.9 #266 6:29PM
Thank you friendlymouse! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 9:57PM
Fantastic rak! My first memory, I was about 9 years old. It was my family's first time to Disneyland and we were walking by where the Finding Nemo Subs are, the fireworks were going off and my mom said "Look! It's Tinkerbell on Matterhorn!" I looked immediately since she was my favorite and I wanted to see her really bad that trip. I just remember being in awe when she flew off the mountain. I was so excited cause not only did I get to see her but I got to see her fly! Still one of my favorite memory's :) it was a magical moment. - MaleficentMom  218.0 #1758 9:49AM
The first time I saw Tink fly I cried! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 10:13AM
The last time I saw her fly I got teary eyed! It just reminded me that I'm still a kid at heart cause I still got excited... 10 years later! Haha - MaleficentMom  218.0 #1758 11:00PM
I must have been about 4 or 5. I distinctly remember Peter Pan's Flight, The Jungle Cruise, Flight to the Moon, and Pirates of the Caribbean. I remember being in awe. Please add me. Mickey Mouse is my favorite! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 9:56AM
On our first trip, when ride POTC. The drops scared me so bad I climbed over the seat to sit with my mom. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 10:14AM
Please add me for MyPark. My earliest memory of Disneyland was when I was about 4. I remember watching America Sings and the Country Bear Jamboree and just loved the shows. I also recall riding the Skyway and People Mover with my family and enjoying the views from above. Just having a blast with my family at the park is where my love for everything Disney started.Thank you for such a cool RAK. - DisLUVney  631.4 #320 10:56PM
Please add me. I remember going with my family. When I was younger. They had tickets a through e you had to use tickets for the rides. We would always run out of e tickets. Such memories.. - Disneyforlife  230.2 #1605 10:34AM
Amazing RAK!! Please add me. I went to Disneyland a few times as a kid, but I don't really have any memories from it. I guess my first memory would have to be when I went to Disneyland with a bunch of girls for a friends birthday and we each decorated a shirt for each princess. I was Jasmine because my favorite princess, Belle, was already taken. I think that was back in 2005ish... Thanks :) - MrsDisneyMommy29  280.3 #1053 11:37AM
I think that is so cool! Great idea for a Birthday group! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 5:25PM
Please add me ! awesome RAK! I think I was 7 and me And my brother had the same shirts on it was the day after our birthday and I can remember being terrified to go on the Matterhorn. And I remember taking a picture with mickey and the statue on Main Street - NightmareKaren  364.3 #629 11:38AM
Please add me. I don't remember what my first trip was like because I was very young but I went with people who are very dear to my heart for one of their birthdays. I must've had a great time since I've been going to the parks often ever since. xD thank you! - DisneyDork95  206.2 #1916 3:38PM
I didn't have the privilege of going to Disneyland as a child... My first Disneyland experience was for Gradnite! It's been 10 years since I went... But to this day I can remember how much I fell in love that night. I sure left my heart at Disneyland. Please add me, thank you! - LostUndertheSea  481.8 #440 3:43PM
Gradnight was awesome! I went almost 20 years ago and remember as if it was last week. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:44PM
Please add me! One of my earliest memories of Disneyland is being about 5 years old. My mom, dad, brother, and I all wore matching black shirts with Mickey Mouse on them, which I thought was SO cool! lol I remember my brother and I buying autograph books and hunting for characters throughout the park for autographs. I still remember how in awe I was of Pluto signing his name and using a pawprint- so fun! - LittleMermaidLover  290.6 #970 4:23PM
So awesome!! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:44PM
Please add me. My first memory was when I was very young. All I can remember is being scared for me life on the drop for splash mountain. - tallestman_cm  170.1 #2408 9:29PM
That drop is scary no matter the age 😉 - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 11:23PM
Went on it last night, just as scary as it was back then. - tallestman_cm  170.1 #2408 3:26PM
I don't have an iphone 4 or 4s, so please add me for whoever replies under this post. :) My first memory -- being scared of POTC at the age of 2. I remember I screamed (A LOT). Because of this, I still get jittery/anxious before going down the hills... even though I love TOT, Splash, Screaming, etc.! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1247.3 #136 9:46PM
Thank you! - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1566.1 #107 9:49PM
That's the same I have of my first ride in the carrabean at age 6. Love that I'm not alone 😃 - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 11:25PM
My first memory was around 5 or 6. My parents took me and my cousin. I was so excited to not have my little sister with me. I know that sounds bad. I still have a picture of us in front of a building in Tomorrowland. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1566.1 #107 9:55PM
I loved my trips with out my younger sister too 😂 it's just one of those things - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 11:25PM
Please add me! My memory of disneyland was making my parents go on snow white over and over because it was my favorite ride and dumbo as well. Something about the dwarfs i always loved 😊 and dumbo is one of my many favorite characters but i always loved going up and down on the ride. I dont quit remember my age, i want to say between 5-7. Now i cant get enough of all the rides nor the park! I hope my kids in the future enjoy disneyland as much as i do - BrinnieMouse182  177.5 #2283 2:02AM
That's a great memory! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:57PM
please add, my first time was when I was around 10, it was one of the happiest day of my life. Back then my family didn't have that much money and my older sister surprised everyone with tickets, that she had bought with the money she saved up from her job! Now we are able to buy annual passes every year for the past 6 yrs! - wickedprince  230.7 #1599 2:13AM
Awesome - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:57PM
This is such a great RAK!!! I loved reading everyone's memories. Don't have an iPhone so please add me for the first person to respond. I can't think of what my first memory would be but I remember going often with my grandmother and we would just walk and enjoyed the park. We would ride IASW every time and when we came to the hula girls she would say which one was my mom, me and her. It brings a happy tear to my eye whenever I see them. - MrsGrumpy2002  209.2 #1885 12:02AM
Aww, I'll take the spot since you offered! Thank you!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 12:04AM
You're welcome! - MrsGrumpy2002  209.2 #1885 5:19PM
Ohh,please add me,my first memory of disneyland was watching the Main st.electrical parade,i dont remember my age but i remember my mom and aunt laughing at my face expressions when i saw that parade coming down the street.thanks for the rak and memories😃 - bonedaddy909  1444.9 #117 8:32AM
Oh how sweet! Too bad they didn't have pictures. I think I probably had the same kind if faces the first time watching that parade. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 8:55AM
I got to see the same expressions on my own kids faces,truly magical even tho they were a lil bit older than i was. - bonedaddy909  1444.9 #117 9:14AM
Great RAK ! My first one going to Disneyland , I was 18 years old . I had just bought my first sports car ( I lived on top ramen to make those payments lol !) I literally drove from the dealership down to LA with the T-Tops off the whole way . Lol! Stayed at the Anaheim plaza inn which used to be right across the street from the main entrance , until they moved it . Thank you for your generosity :) I think you always remember your first trip fondly . Thk u - eviljules  1404.0 #124 8:38AM
How fun!! I know how it is to live on the roman diet. Lol. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 8:53AM
Cute, please add me. My first memory, I don't know how old I was. I am guessing 4. It was have that ride where you get "shrunk." Ahh, forgot the name even though it has been posted here. I remember watching the people getting shrunk and going on it. Don't remember anything of the ride after that. For the longest time I didn't know where this memory was from, and thought it was a dream. - Lelundrial  656.3 #304 9:00AM
I've had memories like that. Thinking they where dreams and then being told it was real. The only ride I can think of where people shrank is maybe the people mover? - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 9:14AM
Innerspace? - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 10:45AM
Please add me!! One of my earliest memories at Disneyland was being scared to death riding Space Mt for the first time. I was about 4 or 5 years old and I screamed from beginning to end. Now I love the ride!! Thank you for this RAK, very cute, and very nice of you!! - MousekaNinja  422.4 #524 10:49AM
I remember one year we went, we waited in line and my sister chickened out at the last minute. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 1:40PM
Great RAK! My first trip to DL was about age 7, we loved it and we were able to pick out one thing to take home! I remember getting a sweatshirt, I was so excited just like my brother and sister! On the way home we stopped in Barstow to visit some friends and our car was broken into 😢they took everything of value including our new Disney presents. Very sad for all of us but...they will never take our first Disneyland memories! They are and will always be with us!😍 - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 11:54AM
By the way, please add me and thank you! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 11:55AM
That's horrible! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 1:36PM
My first time was about when I was five years old. I still have the picture of my dad holding up in front of the Mickey flower design by the entrance. I just retook the picture for my birthday. Every time I see both these pics I get so teary eyed just at all the time that has passed. - PanPiratePoppyCock  230.8 #1597 12:27PM
Sorry forgot to mention "add me" - PanPiratePoppyCock  230.8 #1597 12:27PM
What sweet memory. I wish I still had pictures of our trips as a kid. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 1:35PM
Fun RAK! I have an iPhone 5 so may I be added for MyPark please! My first trip to Disneyland I was too young to remember, about 1 years old, but my mom has a picture of me in my stroller outside of Captain EO in '89! She always took such great pictures and I am glad I can re live my first few trips through those. - evilqueensmistress  285.1 #1012 1:51PM
I will add MyPark or you no problem. 😊 - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 3:37PM
What an awesome RAK! Thank you for adding me! I remember going at maybe 7 years old and you still needed the ticket books. I loved Adventures Thru Innerspace, Mission To Mars and America Sings. My absolute favorite ride then and now is Pirates of the Caribbean. A trip to Disneyland is not complete until I ride it! It totally makes me feel like that 7 year old again. 😊 - Mickeylover67  521.3 #400 9:27PM
I don't have an iPhone either so please add foe whoever replies to my post. My first trip was when I was a high school freshman. My family traveled from the east coast and we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. I remember loving riding the monorail. - kimberross  505.2 #421 10:02PM
Oo add me please!!! 😊 - MousekaNinja  422.4 #524 10:44PM
Thank you kimberross! - MousekaNinja  422.4 #524 10:51PM
Got ya covered mousekaninja - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 11:26PM
Please added me. My first memory off DL I was 3 or 4 and got my first Mickey ears and I remember my brother who was 4 or 5 went on a boat ride and was so scared he cried. - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #99 11:16PM
Please add me, thank you! My first memory of going to Disneyland was for the 40th anniversary. It was 1995, and I was only 3 years old. For some odd reason, I still remember waking up the following morning and going to sit on the couch at my aunt's and uncle's place and being so depressed because I wanted to go back to the park. It was from then on that I knew I had an addiction to Disneyland because for the rest of the week, my cousin and I played make believe and pretended we were still in the park riding the attractions. - rbeezy  703.0 #273 11:30PM
How cute. Thank you for sharing - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:57PM
Add me please~my first memory is riding the Teacups with my grandfather (I was 5 & the year was 1972). It was love at first sight! - NVDLfan  188.9 #2135 7:39AM
How awesome of your grandpa to go in that with you. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:58PM
Please add me...my 1st time at Disneyland was when I was 8. My parents and aunt brought my brother, sister and 2 cousins. I was hooked. It was magical. I've never been the same!!! - Pinup Princess  170.7 #2396 8:27AM
Me too! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 4:58PM
Great RAK, please add me. My first trip to DL was last April 21st. I was 34 and went with 3 guy friends, who thought they knew Disney well, but I kept pointing out things to them that I had learned online that they never knew. My first attraction was POTC. I told my friend that the crab was moving, and he just laughed as he knew what was around the bend. That day I discovered that I love animatronic animals. - JenGwen323  2025.6 #77 1:59PM
I love how you "schooled" your friends. 😉 - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 5:00PM
Such a nice RAK! Thank you! Please add me! My first time at Disneyland was with my best friend Ana. We went for her birthday and we were about 8. I remember we bought Minnie Mouse plushes to keep as a memory :) We do that every trip to keep as a tradition! The first ride that I rode there that I could remember was Its A Small World. :D - aimeecaitlin  130.8 #3032 5:02PM
No need to add me -I have a droid :/ but this is an amazing RAK! Good luck to all :) - missariel33  2115.5 #72 10:27PM
No need to add me, as I am a droid user, but I just wanted to say how GREAT of a RAK this was and thank you for such generosity! :D These accessories look awesome. Goodluck everyone! My first trip to disneyland was when I was in middle school and I went with my camp. I remember the huge debate over who was going to sit with who on 'Screamin hahah, good memories :) - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:36PM
You can add for someone that has already commented if you want. - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 12:34AM
My first Disney memory was watching the Pocahontas show when I was 10 years old. I remember the show was ending and the paper leaves falling from the sky. I picked up so many and put then in a bag. Later on that day I went on Autopia and I forgot my bad of leaves in the car 😢it's okay. I will its a memory I will never forget. Plus I haven't seen Pocahontas since but because of limited time magic I will be able to meet her on Monday!!! - annjay07  170.5 #2400 1:48AM
Hopefully 😊 - annjay07  170.5 #2400 1:50AM
What a happy yet oh bummer kind of day. I hope you get to see her Monday! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 10:02AM
Please enter me. My first memory is riding the Matterhorn with my mom. I was three and she was squeezing me super tight and kept my head pinned to her chest so I really couldn't see anything. - wannahockaloogie  180.3 #2249 6:27AM
Please add me.....that case is AWESOME!!! My first memory of DL is going with my parents when I was 5.....I vaguely remember riding the train around the park....wow.....34 years ago!! Thanks! - DuckDivingDon  250.4 #1344 10:11PM
I have 30 years of DL fun! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 5:01PM
Please add me! My first time I was 2, almost 3, I remember being so excited to be in Minnie's house :) they also had a Hunchback of Notredame show that we saw! Unfortunately that's about all I recall! Thank you! - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #125 10:26PM
Please add me for PanPiratePoppyCock (although I do not know them, I just watched Peter Pan, so it feels right! Haha) My first memory at DL is from when I was about 4 years old! I got my foot caught in the little opening on ground while exiting the monorail & got pretty banged up! Went to first aid where they gave me a little Mickey stuffed animal which I still have today! :) - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #302 10:27PM
Please add me for that stuffed animal. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 12:04AM
Add me please. I have SOO many great memories at the Parks. I have to say my most favorite memory was when I was about 4 years old. Tower of Terror had just opened at DCA. My uncle, older brother, and I all went to ride. Once we got on I became very nervous. My uncle kept making funny faces and made me laugh so I wasn't so terrified. The ride started and my uncle's expressions are still in my head today. We were all so scared, but once it was over we were all laughing and wanted to go again. My uncle just died from a heart attack, but the Disneyland memories I have with him will never be forgotten. - BrerRabbit  360.8 #642 12:15AM
Wow! This is an amazing RAK! Add me pls! My first disneyland memory was when myvparents took me at age 8. Toon town had recently opened and my sister and I rode our first roller coaster-Gadgets Go Coaster. We had so much fun that day. Thanks again! - AshtonLeigh  309.0 #862 7:51AM
Hey guys, pretty sure this RAK is closed... - MousekaNinja  422.4 #524 5:17PM
