I first went to Disneyland in the spring of 1970. On spring break from Michigan, my parents took me to So Cal for the first time.
Little did I know........
Alone at 18, Disneyland was an interesting experience. I had grown up watching The Wonderful World of Disney every Sunday night.
When the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan at a competing time, I would have rather watched the Swamp Fox on Disney. But this was well before Tivo and
my parents insisted on watching the Beatles. Lots of screaming, little music.
My next stop at Disneyland came in about 1978, post- Christian salvation, and working at KBRT in Los Angeles, Disneyland was 25 and they closed th park for a media party.
This spoiled me. A few thousand people in the Magic Kingdom, with free food and no lines. Wow.
All experiences in Anaheim pale beside that one. However, a recent trip with the Lusko Tribe comes close, Becca, Levi, Heidi and three great childrren really was a treat.
I avoided the dreaded Tea Cups like a plague! -
Another Disney high came in the mid 90s when Harvest did a mini-Disney Crusade at the Park. The Kry came up on the Tommorrowland stage and Skip, Greg, Ricky Ryan and other preached
it up. I took Jesse Jeremiah, and we had a blast.
At various stages and ages, each Lusko child, Daniel, Levi, Becca and all made trips to So Cal with me from Colorado and New Mexico on various business excursions.
Reminds me of the time I took Levi to MGM in Vegas fot a convention.... but that's another blogstory.
