Better to date yourself than someone you don't know! :lol:

But seriously, I asked my parents what my first ride was and they just looked at me. I guess I will never know what my first was.

Honestly, I remember the Monorail being my first. I know it's not a ride, but I always thought of it as one... :?

The first ride I remember was Peter Pan. My parents took me when I was 3, and I was too scared to go on any of the rides. They tried again when I was 4, and brought along one of my friends. I vividly remember standing in line for Peter Pan because this time my friend was the one freaking out and clinging to the cast iron railings. I remember trying to reassure him that the ride would be fun (and it was - "C'mon everybody, here we goooooo!"). I think we all eventually got on the ride at least. :peter_pan:

I can barely remember I was barely 1 year old. I do remember being 3 or 4 and being terrified of the Monsanto - I really thought it would shrink me and if the machine broke before the re-enlarged me, I'd be stuck in this tiny state!

...Hmmm sounds like the plot to Honey I shrunk the Kids :shock:

I guess you might say, I thought of it first! :roll:

The first ride I remember riding was Peter Pan's Flight. I went to Disney once before but I dont remember what my first ride was. All I remember was my first ride on my 2nd trip so Peter Pan will always have a place in my heart.
I know this is probably your first flight...and it's mine too...ha, ha

Rain upon that planet Earth. And they rain ... and rain ... and rain. The deluge.

Peter Pan always has a place in my heart. I love the imagination of it.

I don't remember my first ride, which is odd because you would think that I would since I was 21 at the time...

Must be this aging thing again.

i have no idea...i was 1 and a half or 2...

i doubt my parents remember, either :P

i'm guessing something like small world, though...

i do know that my first favorite disney rides/attractions were figment, 20,000 leagues, and the enchanted tiki room. i was also pretty nuts for captain eo, and had all the plushes of the characters from it...probably still do, in storage somewhere...

I was 2 on my first trip and everything is pretty much a blur. The only thing I remember is shouting "The ball! The ball!" when I spotted Spaceship Earth for the first time. Yes, I thought it was a giant golf ball. :lol:

I remember more from the trip when I was 6 and it was like riding everything for the first time. My first ride was the then Wedway People Mover.

Something at the Studios, my guess is Muppet's 3D. Our first trip was in 2004, and we wanted to start with the park we found least interesting, saving the Magic Kingdom for last. Surprisingly, AK turned out to be our least favorite park. :lol:

oh man, I am trying really hard to remember... ... ...

I think it was the old submarine ride at DL, but I was so young my parents can't even remember.

I'm not positive, but I think my first ride was small world at WDW. It was about 20 years ago now.

Don't at all remember first.
I know my favorites from back then was Space Mountain. I distinctly remember going on this ride and none of the others my first trip.
