    If you could time travel, would you rather go back and see Disneyworld on the day it opened or go forward twenty years to see what it will look like then :)

    LOL, Robert! I was thinking something along the same lines. I'll be too old to enjoy it then! LOL.

    I think I'd be sad to see how it once was, and what it has become today. I'm one of those people who, where Disney is concerned, believes that progress has not made things better.

    After experiencing an awful lot of rude people who don't care about anyone else but themselves, I think I would go back in time. Well that or send the people that have been here back in time to show them how to behave

    As long as we're time traveling, I want to go back to about 1997 or 1998.

    Before the Dining Plan but after they switched over to real chefs. Back when you could just walk up to almost any restaurant and manage to get a table. You might have to wait for a little bit, but it usually wasn't that long. And the meals were always wonderful.

    Back when they had regular, good entertainment at the America Gardens Theatre. Like when we saw "Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance" or the Star of Indiana Marching Band doing "Blast!".

    That's when I'd want to go back to.

    YES!!! Back when the FWF was new and so exciting. The Disney chefs were represented and you saw free demonstrations from talented chefs throughout the world. We saw so many excellent demonstrations "back then." From Stanton Ho to Martin Yan, to Bobby Flay, Todd English... Andrea Immer Robinson (master sommelier)... it was wonderful.

    The sample sizes were large enough to share, and the samples themselves rarely topped $3 each.

    The parks were pristine with CMs appearing by magic to sweep up the first crumb of popcorn...

    The Junkanoo Bus was in full force, Bella Nova, The Living Statues, Gordon the Mime at France... The little man at Japan who created such detailed little figures out of wax... it was a truly cultural experience.

    Yep, let's roll 'er back to about 1997. :D

    we first went in 1995 and it was completely different to now. Much cleaner and well more magical
